Remind me never to get into the passenger seat while you're driving!

Actually, I was in that situation once. When I went to the PĆ¼chner and Schreiber
factories with Georg to demonstrate the Resonance Spectrally Tuned clarinet. We
drove up with a colleage of Georg's who drives a lot on the freeway. It was
pouring rain and also a bit foggy. This guy drove 180 km (that's 112.5 mph) on the
A5 Autobahn and was steering with one knee while he unwrapped his sandwich and
fiddled with his drink. I asked if I could drive and he let me. Was a really neat
BMW station wagen. Georg said very pointedly, "I think David drives *much* better
than you do! (He meant more slowly!)
