What is the weirdest thing

you have done while driving? I saw a guy flossing this morning and it is quite common for people to pick nose while waiting for the green light

Myself - I put lotion on my shaved head

I'm old school- I just drive. Although here in NY it's nothing to see people reading the newspaper in traffic

Received a very nice surprise from my date, during which, I was passed by a police officer who I swear smiled at me knowingly.

And the best part is, this all occured after leaving the drive through at Whataburger, so as all of this was going on, I had the aroma of hot cheeseburgers and fries wafting around me! It was truly a beautiful moment. I wish you all could have been there.

Since I'm a 100% commuter, my hands are usually tied up with the handlebars rather than disengaging to picky the nose.

However, I do witness others who choose to pursue with gusto that pot-o-gold. ick.

I'm sure she would have loved the audience too. We could all have put up rating signs like the Olympics rating the event. Or maybe rating the "tool".....would you like that?

I for one, would have been singing a spoof of the theme song from Rawhide, just because I'm crazy like that.

Okay by me, and I think she would have been okay with an audience as well. As to the scoring anything over 4 and I would be okay with that too.

Jumping jacks, with chin-ups being a close second.

I guess some people would think it's weird to do a paint-by-numbers while driving, but I'm a busy man. Art is important, dammit!

I changed fully into work clothes while speeding like a fool. Changing pants and tieing my shoes while driving was pretty tough.

Nobody can promise it will be over a 4 until seen. You'll just have to take that risk.

Sorry Jeff, it was a 3.995. Although it rounds up to a 4, it would have to go into the record books with an *.
