But today, it seems that not many people partake in these activities.

Do You Brake For Animals In The Road? Watch Roadkill Experiment Here [Video]

I love animals, and it always makes me sad to see one dead on the side of the road. I'll do just about anything to not hit one. It doesn't matter what the animal is. I give an opossum or chipmunk the same chance that I give  a deer when I encounter them on the road. What about you? Are you one of the 6% that swerves to not hit one of God's creatures? Watch the (not so) scientific study after the jump. You might recognize yourself!

Family Fun at the Fair [VIDEOS]

Years and years ago, my Aunt Mary told me that grown-ups usually don't going on certain carnival rides once their earwax has hardened.  I guess it has something to to with your equilibrium.  Over the weekend, we spent a day at the Oakland County 4-H Fair.  My niece, Rachel, insisted that I go because she knows that I love the big rides, and she wanted to ride with me.
