    Question I need some advice

    ok heres the deal, Monday morning I have to ride up to Dallas with the VP of my company. (about 4 hours). Can you guys give me some ideas for things to talk about? He's very technically smart, (I work for a software company) he's from South Africa, he has 2 kids and likes country music, but thats about all I know. just looking for a little brain storming...
    thanks,

    Bring a large cannister of Nitrous and open it up halfway through the drive. You'll find plenty to talk about!! hehe

    Try asking him some questions. Lots of people like to talk about themselves, their work, etc. Who knows, you might even learn something.

    You're in Texas, so you can always talk about high school football.

    That got my friends and I out of a speeding ticket one time while driving around down there.

    Ummmm.... ok, what I'll do is keep a can handy in case the conversation starts to drag.

    I thought about the whole sports thing, but he likes Cricket and rugby, two sports I know exactly dick about...

    yeah, I think I can kill an hour or so getting him to brag on himself and his kids... thanks guys, keep 'em coming!

    Since you both in the same field, bring up stuff like what made you get into this business, etc....That will lead to other topics like family, hobbies, sex....JK

    Also, if you can find him; I'm sure Nathan could provide a vast variety of topics for discussion that will stimulate the mind, and scare the shit out of the guy

    Bring alot of music to listen too, then, in the part of the country song where the guy talks about his truck breaking down and his dog dieing, break down into tears and pull over. When he asks what's wrong, tell him that you don't want to talk about it, and peel out back onto the road. Then no one will feel bad about not talking, I promise.
