have a fun road trip

As if texting wasn't a big enough distraction while driving, there is a list of 30 fun things (and they even had an extra honorable mention!) to do while you're driving.

Ya know.. Spice up your ride a little bit. Turn it into an adventure. Make people laugh when they see you driving down the highway. And laugh with them.

Here they are:

1. Vary your vehicle's speed inversely with the speed limit.
2. Roll down your windows and blast talk radio. Attempt to headbang.
3. At stop lights, eye the person in the next car suspiciously. With a look of fear, lock your doors.
4. Two words: Chicken suit.
5. Write the words "Help me" on your back window in red paint. The more it looks like blood, the better.
6. Have conversations, looking periodically at the passenger seat, when driving alone.
7. Laugh a lot. A whole lot.
8. Stop at the green lights. [As long as I'm not behind you]
9. Go at the red ones.
10. Occasionally wave a stuffed animal/troll doll/Barbie out your window or sunroof. Feel free to make it dance.
11. Eat food that requires silverware.
12. Pass cars, then drive very slowly. [But do this to me, and I'll run you over...]
13. Sing without having the radio on.
14. Honk frequently without motivation.
15. Wave at people often. If they wave back, offer an angry look and an obscene gesture.
16. Ask people for Grey Poupon.
17. Let pedestrians know who's boss. [Just don't do it in Morgantown]
18. Look behind you frequently, with a very paranoid look.
19. Restart your car at every stop light.
20. Hang numerous car-fresheners in the rear-view mirror. Talk to them, stroking them lovingly.
21. Lob burning things in the windows of smokers who throw their butts out the window. [Probably not the safest thing ever... But, if that's what floats your boat....]
22. Keep at least five cats in the car.
23. Root (cheer, not snuffle in the mud) for firetrucks.
27. Stop and collect roadkill.
28. Stop and pray to roadkill.
29. Throw Spam.
30. Get in the fast lane and gradually ... slow ... down ... to a stop. Then get out and watch the cars. Throw Spam at them.
31. Chinese Firedrill.

#27 and 28 are hilarious. Along with #6. Chinese firedrills are always a good idea, obviously.. And if I ever saw someone driving in a chicken suit, I would crash because tears would be filling up my eyes with laughter.

But, some of these, are not funny unless I'm in the car with you while you do it... So choose your actions wisely on the roads I use. Thanks.

And, when planning on making your trip into an adventure, always, ALWAYS have a video camera with you.
