Adam Curry writes that one of the things he likes most about flying a helicopter is that you can’t be distracted by anything else.
That’s also one of my favorite aspects of my two-year effort to learn to drive my old car on the racetrack. It demands (and gets) your total concentration; while you’re out on the track, you simply cannot think of anything else. So far, I’ve been here, here, here and here. It’s a real skill, combining tactile/motor skills with a real knowledge of geometry and the physics of how different actions affect a car at speed. And it’s a lot of fun.
