Listening To Music Can Distract You From Driving

Please, Save The Noise For OUTside The Car

Don't Let that radio fool you!


Have you ever been driving and jamming out to the radio when all of the sudden a commercial comes on the radio? Ugh, everyone hates advertisements, but distracting ones are the worst. Sometimes when we drive and listen to our tunes, we zone out and simply focus on the automatic and muscle memory concept of driving. Sometimes car horns beeping or sirens come on the radio during a commercial, and lately, this incident has been a much too frequent occurrence for me.

Perhaps, since I have been driving more lately due to my internship, I am more aware of this sound in an ad. Or have commercials been inserting car noises into commercials more often as of late in order to attempt for listeners to pay attention to the commercial as a result of the noise?

I would not mind this sound if I was listening to the radio at home, but being in the car and hearing this noise gives me a mini heart attack each time. Sometimes I think that I am being pulled over, or I am unsure if an ambulance is attempting to come in front of me due to an emergency.

I have also been under the false impression that a car is honking at me when in actuality it is not. These sound effects are productive in commercials and are able to convey messages, but they are a danger for me as a driver. My driving will potentially be more perilous due to the sounds of other cars on the radio. Sometimes it is difficult to distinguish between what is real and what is not, and these sounds on the radio seem so close.

Many people utilize the radio as background noise, and harmful sound effects must be eliminated in order to save drivers and prevent accidents. Beware of possible noises from the radio, and don't allow these sounds to throw you off or interfere with your driving! Be carful because you don't want to have a fright as I have! Continue to drive safely, and enjoy your music in spite of these potential interruptions.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

To The Classes That Follow
Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
