    My mom got a speeding ticket in Wapakoneta once. That's really all I've got.

    This job appears around once a year. Used to get Ohio State passes for football home games, but wouldn't let you count mileage or hours, since that was considered a "benefit." Spending 12 hours in Columbus with 100,000 drunks and then mange your way through the gangbang afterwards is all fun and games.

    Not that far from a lake that is so toxic you can't boat or swim in it. When I worked at a different paper in that area a decade and a half ago, the dead fish smell used to wake me up in the mornings.

    To be completely accurate, you can boat and fish on the lake right now (I drove past today and saw a bunch of boats out there). I wouldn't recommend swimming in it, though.
