If you’re old enough you’ll remember the agony of defeat video that used to be played on “The Wide World of Sports.” In this video a downhill skier wipes out and begins a massive head over heels tumble down the slope in what seems like a deadly spill. I was reminded of this when I saw a headline urging me to watch one of the worst crashed in auto racing history.
What draw us to videos of carnage? I think it’s because there’s a comforting feeling in thinking: “Damn, I’m glad that’s not me.”
Our next shot at seeing carnage?
