There are no prizes for winning this game, except increased knowledge!
Late yesterday afternoon I had to laugh at myself. I truly demonstrated that I was the "Northstar" Nerd. Here was the situation:
- I had just finished a hard cross-county skiing workout (see Loppets for LindYun)
- Upon finishing, I discovered that the lanyard from my thumb drive had been around my neck during my entire ski!
You may ask ... why? Well, I was listening to the Car Talk podcast via my FM modulator in my car while driving over to the park where I ski. As the podcast was not finished when I arrived, I left the thumb drive connected to the modulator, and started my workout ... compete with disconnected lanyard around my neck!
Now how can this be educational for you? Do you time shift by listening to podcasts in your car? Although I was listening to CarTalk, lots of other knowledge based podcasts are available ... for instance Harvard Ideacast. I've attached a few photos to give you a better understanding, but link to my Drivetime podcast post to watch a tutorial, and view some of my podcast links. The cost of an FM modulator is under $25 U.S.
