There are days when I had enough of staying home all day. I’m miserable, and the few seconds of a warm embrace from outside aren’t plenty. So, I get my butt off the couch to go on a drive with the silver bullet, my Nissan Altima. I get into that fine piece of Japanese manufacturing and head to the nearest dirt road, where I speed up at high speeds. As I’m zooming through dirt patches, I yank the wheel aggressively to flip me in the air in a 360 spiral, which spun me around in that beauty of a machine for seconds.

Dominic Toretto and Letty, played by Michelle Rodriguez, while riding a Mustang at high velocities, Dominic Toretto clings to a rope with only grapple attached to the bottom of the car as they soar past the…
