Ask Jared #1

A way for my limited viewing audience to interact with me. Ask me something. Anything. Go to comments and ask away.

I don’t care if it ranges from serious, mature, or what my favorite mythical creature is. Go for it. Or don’t.


Blog-A-Day™ Status Report – January 22

This blog-a-day initiative has fallen apart recently. I think I’m an entire week behind. It’s hard to write everyday. Today in particular. I can’t think of anything of any substance that I want to talk about. I think it may be contributed to the fact I only had 3.5 hours of sleep last night.

If you don’t already, follow me on Twitter, and check out my link blog to the right. The links I share are often what I’m reading or interested in at the moment. The links are aggregated from my Google Reader shared items, my delicious, and my Vimeo likes.

I have received a few punishment suggestions for not updating. The top two, and only two are as follows:


Or to watch Britney: For The Record until I’m caught up.

So, if you have a better suggestion let me know.

This counts as a blog post.

Central Ohio Driving

Central Ohioans do not know how to drive when something is falling from the sky. While this may sound as a complaint, I think there should be a study comparing accidents, and driving behavior during rain and snow compared to other demographics. I have several friends (and while this may be anecdotal) from outside the Central Ohio area who claim drivers around here are idiots. I tend to agree.

A couple of notes, and advice to people who will never read this and then I’ll leave this up for discussion.

SUVs do not make you invincible. Momentum and physics still exist in your four wheel drive monster. (I own a Jeep, and I can tell you, 4 wheels do not matter on ice).

One does not need to go 5 miles an hour to be safe. If the road is straight they will be fine.

Don’t ride my ass because you think I’m going too slow. I’m trying to avoid an accident, and so should you.

For you safe drivers that read this, do you tend to agree with Central Ohio being the bad driving capital of the midwest?

Radio Poll Results

Not that many of you responded. Is anyone reading? Here are the results to the poll I put up about Radios.

For the 6 of you who answered, you all listen to FM in the car. 1/3 listens to NPR. Hoorah. I think there needs to be some sort of new innovation in radio, but, I’m not a genius so I can’t think of what that innovation would be. I think it would be something to make it more interactive. Do any DJs have Twitter accounts?
