Only Jason Falls would create a "car cam" to shoot this episode of the Daily Idea. He discusses, argues and gets a little feisty explaining why people need to learn how to merge. Don't worry he was wearing his seat belt and had the child locks on.

The first week in May is a special time here at the home office in Louisville, Kentucky as we gear up for this year’s Kentucky Derby. It’s been called the fastest two minutes in sports and no other city turns two minutes into two weeks as well as Louisville.
More than 150,000 people are expected at Churchill Downs this Saturday. If you’re one of them, get a few betting tips from your rich aunt and grab your big hat and come along for Daily Idea’s “Insider's Guide to the Kentucky Derby.”
Back in the 70s you could roll into the bar wearing platform shoes, polyester, ask a girl what her sign was and get her digits. Now we all live in our own little worlds and if you approached a girl like that you would probably get pepper sprayed. Where is a guy to turn to use his pure cheesiness to pick up the opposite sex? MySpace of course!
MySpace can act like a dating site for people who were marked as too unpure by eharmony or too cheap to pay for match****. It is a place where even the most desperate can luck up and find somebody.
Now that the Super Bowl is over, millions of Americans will experience what is known as Post NFL Depression. These poor people deal with the loss of their favorite sport for six long months in between the Super Bowl and the next season’s kickoff. We brought in the Daily Idea staff doctor to tell you more about this debilitating disease.
Let’s be honest, we all make generalizations about people the first time we see them. Therefore, you're going to need every possible weapon in your arsenal to bag the best partner, and a great body is definitely one of your big guns. While we can't exactly tell you how to have a great personality or teach you how to “be cool” because we horde that secret for personal gain, a great body is something nature doesn't always provide that CAN be improved upon with a little time, dedication, and planning.
It's time for March Madness and the Daily Idea has the Ultimate NCAA Bracket Pool! We threw out bracketology and called on our 3-year old expert, Katherine to pick the best bracket.

Can you beat a 3-year old? Find out by joining our pool on Yahoo (Group #128984), named Daily Idea Pool. We'll announce the winners after the tournament.
A couple months ago, Jason Falls publicly committed to improving his health if his Twitter followers would join his efforts. A surprising number of folks stepped forward also wanting to improve their personal health and they've found the hashtag #twit2fit has been a great resource for support. With numerous workouts behind Jason's start, a web site www.twit2fit**** has been created and Jason explains how you can get involved.
The National Football League (NFL) has announced its new code of conduct for its fans. America's most popular professional sport prohibits its sometimes reckless fans from being rude, offensive, drunk and your can't curse. While their fan base isn't quite as bad as the crazy soccer hooligans, it is quite ironic given all the off the field problems. Jason Falls breaks down why the NFL should focus more on its players and less on restricting the fans.
The latest news in Hollywood is Cheech and Chong are going back on comedy tour. Jason predicts they'll be funny after all these years, but suggests they'll be 53% funnier if you've ever been high and 92% funnier if you go see them and you ARE high. We don't suggest or promote the use of illegal substances, it's just really interesting to see this pothead pair headed back on tour.
The Daily Idea's senior apolitical correspondent, Jason Falls, finds fault with conservative pundits and their ignorant followers who think Barack Obama isn't fit to be president because his middle name is Hussein. Republicans have permission to spew their narrow-minded hate for fat people in the comments.
Social networking can be fun for people of all ages and demographics, but what happens when your parents or their friends start to "friend" you?
Jason Falls explains his thought process and finally finds what to do with the Facebook poke.
On July 4th, 1776 the United States declared its independence from Great Britain. The historic Declaration of Independence was the document that proclaimed our new country's freedom to the world.
Rather than talk about fireworks, parades or cookouts, Jason Falls reads excerpts of this famous document to remind us why our forefathers fought for our freedom.
