I posted how much I would love self driving cars and thought about how I pass the time when I'm in the car. FOCUS: What do you do now to pass the time while driving or as a passenger in the car. Driving: I have about a 25 minute commute to work every day, lately I've been getting audio books from the library to listen to for the ride. It actually makes me look forward to my commute. Passenger: I have a hard time sleeping in cars and like to be decked out with my laptop that has multiple video games and movies, my iPod touch and text books if I feel like studying. I'll even do this for very short (around 20 minute) rides, I like options. ALT FOCUS: What did you do to pass the time when you were younger? I lived in Vermont for a while and my entire extended family lives in Mass so my mom and I would do road trips there a lot, we would play the "guess what color I'm thinking of" game. I also use to see how many different state license plates I could find. ALT ALT FOCUS: Passenger or driver, which do you prefer? I don't know what it is, but I HATE driving. I'm good at it, never been in an accident, but for some reason I just don't like doing it, I'd much rather be in the passenger seat playing video games or watching movies and not be concerned with the road. Unfortunately my girlfriend feels the same way.
