Questions for You

posted by Jason Boyett

I have certain things on my mind. I am looking to you, dear readers, for answers.

1. A bunch of media reports indicate that Americans are driving fewer miles a month for the 8th straight month. High gas prices are apparently causing us to find other means of transportation, or simply to not go as many places. Question: Is this true for you? And if you’re driving less, why? Other forms of transportation or fewer late-night trips to Taco Bell?

2. Apparently, there will be thousands of hours of footage broadcast on NBC, its affiliate networks, and the Internet during these Olympic games. Question: How much of this coverage are you watching? Are you an Olympics junkie? A casual fan? Are you aware that, if Michael Phelps were a country, he’d be close to the top ten in the medal count?

3. Watch this video, which excites my brother to no end. Question: Do you think this creature is the fabled chupacabra?

Your comments on any or all of the above are welcome.

My answers:

1. Yes. I ride my bike as much as possible to and from work and/or on other short errands, but I’ve also opened a small business across town that requires me to drive more. So I try to drive less, but I’m afraid I’m actually driving more these days than I used to.

2. I’m a casual fan. I might watch some with the kids to give them a taste of Olympic sports like swimming or gymnastics, and maybe a little late at night after the niños go to bed. But that’s pretty much it. There’s just too much to keep up with.

3. I don’t know what that thing is. But it’s weird. If only we had footage that clear of Bigfoot.

1. I am walking or riding my bike to work as much as I can of late. I also traded in my Suburban (with urban assault top-mounted turret) for a Chevy Impala (which I pronounce im-PAY-luh, as in “Vlad,” because why not).2. I watch the Olympics only so I can find inspiration for my new Web site, “fakeolympiceventshirts.com.” Get your long-sleeved 100M Ostrich Taunt shirt now!3. That’s not the fabled chupacabra. That’s the fairly prosaic chupacabra, a completely different and altogether less-exciting species. It doesn’t so much suck your goats as it just follows them and complains.

My Introvert Interview
On Monday, author Adam McHugh delivered a guest post about the "snarling 8-headed monster" of the writing process. Today I return the favor -- sort of -- via an interview at his blog, Introverted Church. We talk about how my introverted personality has impacted my faith and doubt, and how the extrov

Harold Camping: "Invisible Judgment Day"
When the rapture didn't occur as predicted on May 21, 2011, Harold Camping had a few options. Here is how he could have responded to the failed prediction, in descending levels of crazy: 1. He could announce that he was wrong. This is the most reasonable option and was therefore unexpected. I wou

The Phases of Writing (Adam McHugh)
If you've ever felt out of place among all the exciting, expressive, emotional enthusiasm of a contemporary church service...or an evangelist's demands that you need to constantly be sharing your faith boldly to strangers...if it simply wipes you out to be surrounded by people all the time,  then y
