Shooting videos while driving? All Althouse needed was a baby in her lap and she would have one-upped Britney Spears.

Ann Althouse said...

Yeah, well, I'm not showing you the one that includes the speedometer!

OldGrouchy Doug Wright said...

Solo driving? How 20th Century!

Ann Althouse said...

Yeah, but note the windmills!

Lem said...

I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing Althouse in Cincinnati (to be with her man) and returning her safely to Madison. No single space project...will be more exciting, or more impressive to mankind, or more important...and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish...".

Meade said...

That's one small step for [a] commenter, one giant leap for the blogosphere.

(Actually, Lem, it was all pretty easy. And came in under budget!)

Lem said...

Lol

nice

I was going to Google Scotty but then I remember don’t have time travel yet.

Michael Hasenstab said...

Do the trips between Mad City and Cinncy have names?

Space Shuttle seems like a fitting description of a trip to Madison. Going to Cinncy, Chili Run.

Meade said...

Don't get me wrong.

There was suffering.

Incredible indescribable undeniable suffering.

The professor is able to multi-task.

I think the person behind you wanted to pass. Why are you slow-poking in the left lane?

OldGrouchy Doug Wright said...

What about gnashing teeth and rendering garments?

L. E. Lee said...

Great video Althouse. Though, it would have been cooler if it included the crash.

Windbag said...

If you really want to mess with your head, look through binoculars while riding in a car.

Joaquin said...

On the left (passing lane) lane no less! tisk tisk!

Lem said...

Let me ask you guys, I noticed whenever we did long trips my parents became more like transformed into the nicest people on the planet. I never been able to figure it out.

By nice I mean asking and complying with every whim, stopping eating and paying for everything.

I noticed the same thing on our last trip a few years ago from NJ to Georgia to visit one of my sisters.

It’s as if the act of traveling has a transformative effect. (please no movie jokes)

I kept waiting for the blue flashing lights to appear in the rearview mirror.

Meade, "Did you make her?"

"D'yer Mak'er" (intended to be pronounced in a British non-rhotic accent as "Jamaica", /dʒəˈmeɪkə/) is a song by English rock band Led Zeppelin, from their 1973 album Houses of the Holy.

The name of the song is derived from a play on the words "Jamaica" and "Did you make her", based on an old joke ("My wife's gone to the West Indies." "Jamaica?" "No, she went of her own accord.") On 21 July 2005, Led Zeppelin vocalist Robert Plant discussed the song during an interview with Mike Halloran, a DJ on radio station FM94/9 in San Diego. During the interview, he talked about the different interpretations and pronunciations of the name of the song. The title, which appears nowhere in the lyrics, was chosen because it reflects the reggae flavour of the song. Plant has said that he finds it amusing when American fans completely ignore the apostrophes and pronounce it as "Dire Maker". The common mispronunciation is alluded to in the song "Joke About Jamaica" by The Hold Steady in the lines: "They used to think it was so cute when she said 'Dire Maker'/All the boys knew it was a joke about Jamaica".

Meade said...

No, EDH, I don't think so. But she did seem to be a little hot. In fact, "Mad as sun."

traditionalguy said...

Has Ann qualified as a member in the International Brotherhood of Teamsters yet? Her milage on the super slab is high enough by now. The very thought of "Althouse the Teamster Blogger" will push Sullivan over the edge.

EDH said...

In fact, "Mad as sun."


Okay, as long as you two are not among the creepy, open-mouthed weirdos in
Black Hole Sun, you know mowing the lawn, squirting milk through a nipple and torturing insects among other things.

What camera are you using?

I'm thinking about getting one of those Flip camcorders.

Woodthrush, part of today's bike commute. Video. Actually bird audio with tree video.

Wheat, four miles further along, on June 16.
