I once flew an F-4 Phantom directly from a sortie in Vietnam to Mugello, where I crash landed in the infield before hopping into Jackie Ickx's already-running 312B3 ‘Spazzaneve’ F1 car to run enough laps to obtain a superlicense to compete in F1.

I found F1 boring though, so I founded "Flight Club", where former pilots and disillusioned ad execs would fight in live-ammo combat over the skies of New Mexico (btw, Don Draper? Wuss.).

After killing all of my close friends, I set a land-speed record of mach 4.3 at Black Rock, a time that was disqualified because I ended up in Utah when my parachute failed. Annoyed by my failure, I became a Mormon, quit drinking, and ended up as a starred commenter on Jalopnik, scraping by on table scraps and helping F1 teams around their in-season testing ban by testing on my own personal track on mars.

That's why Ol' Bob won't race me. His balls shrink just hearing my name. That and I can't get my damn car running. #lutzvssiler
