Fixing my gaze onto his little orange dicky bow doesn’t help. This is very real. This is happening. I think my brain is actually going to explode.
That’s what it feels like when a thicko like me enters the third hour of dense conversation with scientist-cum-racer-cum-über-tuner Bisi Ezerioha. Listening to Bisimoto Engineering’s inimitable and engaging founder reel off chemical structures, scientific formulae and data as if he were a fleshy operating system, while applying them to his toy box of physics-bending Frankencars, has been some kind of academic waterboarding.
