my worst idea ever

June 2nd, 2008 (12:29 am)

I had a very long drive today, and at one point -- as I usually do at least once on a very long drive, especially when there's a huge truck in the other lane -- I gave myself a little too much space and hit the "wake up, dumbass!" rumble strips at the side of the road.

That's when I had an epiphany.

This. Plus this (sorry).

Think about it, won't you? Thank you.

...it is a really good thing I'm not insanely rich. Or I would start hiring road crews.

Honestly? I would *drive off the road* if it started singing Rick Astley at me.

On the plus side, I'd be unlikely to sleep through it:)

Rick Rolling is the number 4 cause of road rages. Don't be part of the problem, fella!

Besides, as brilliant as this idea is, there's http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAxxJD8Amck&feature=related">a more appropriate suggestion.

Poor Rick Astley. That song was nothing more than 80's dance-pop, perfectly acceptable radio filler. Seems a shame that it's now a prank that's practically worn out.

I'm thinking of other songs that might be appropriate. ("Dead Man's Curve" "Danger Zone") At least now I'll have something to occupy my mind tomorrow at work. :)

Heh, I like your suggestions.

Rickrolling is somewhat lost on me because I like both "Together Forever" and "Never Gonna Give You Up." Kind of a lot, as in I crank up the radio if they come on. Also because I follow people's links relatively rarely. I was way behind the curve figuring out what was going on with this one. I think someone had to explain it to me.

Personally, I think the ideal way to drive people nuts with that is a bit of Sammy Hagar.

Imagine "I Can't Drive 55" *tuned* to 55. That'd be so cruel, considering I have to turn off my radio when it comes on so I don't find myself doing a buck twenty in my '92 Olds...

I think at the point the interstate Rickrolls me, I will trade in the pudgy academic persona and begin climbing bell towers with high powered rifles and a bullhorn. Just a warning. I am a good shot.

I kind of wish you were rich... b/c that would be one damned awesome highway.
