SmartGirls submit their questions, and we post them! Here are some of the results.
We posted the following poll on SmartGirl.org:
Quick Poll: On a road trip, would you rather...
68 SmartGirls Responded.
This chart shows how SmartGirls voted in the poll:
The results are in, and the two options were neck
and neck! SmartGirls are split almost evenly between
wanting to listen to the same music over the speakers and wanting to
listen to their own music on their headphones. The slight edge goes
to listening to music privately with 54.4% of votes,
or just over half. I guess you'll just have to keep
on asking every time you get in the car for a long trip!
Here are some of the reasons SmartGirls gave for how they
want to listen to music in the car:
Have everyone listen to the same music:
That's a hard one, but I guess overall I don't like technology to
literally separate everyone.
So you aren't separated
'Cuz I like the radio
To all sing along
Because it's good to listen to different music because there is some
awesome stuff on there
So we can all sing along!
Because I like sharing my music. If they don't like it, they can
cover their ears because I LOVE Justin Bieber!
Because you can talk about what you're listening to, which kills
time so the road trip doesn't seem so long.
Because it won't be so quiet in the car
So that people in the car can still talk to one another without being
isolated by their mp3 headphones.
It is good for everyone
Because if you know any songs, you can belt them out.
It's cool to listen and sing together all the way
They can all have fun together
Sing alongs are fun! LOL! And everyone in my family loves the same
music (sorta) haha
Because we all could love the same songs together
Because if everyone has their headphones in, it would be next to
impossible to enjoy each other's company
Because everyone I know likes the same type of music that I do
I think it would be easier if everyone listened to one thing because
it wouldn't be fair if someone didn't have an ipod or mp3 player to
Have everyone listen to their own music:
Because not everyone likes the same music. I love hip hop/R&B,
but you may like country
Everyone has their own taste in music
Because then everyone will be happy and nobody will not like the
music that is playing
Because people don't always like the same songs you like
Both. Sometimes I don't like the songs on the radio
Because I'm picky :)
Some people might not like the same music
So no one will fight over music
Not everyone likes the same kind of music
Cuz we all have our own taste
This is because I like enjoying my privacy
Everyone can listen to songs that they like
Maybe we don't all like the same music
Everyone has their own taste
Because some people don't like what other people listen to
Not everyone would like the same music
Some people listen to weird stuff
Because I like my own music
Cuz I hate you
Not everyone has the same music taste
It satisfies everyone's needs!
It's more fun!
Which is more important: the journey or the destination? Why is
it so annoying to listen to music you don't like? Would you rather have
everyone listen to their own music, have everyone listen to one person's
(maybe bad) music, or have no music at all? Would you listen to different
music in a group than you would by yourself? What is the best music for
a road trip?
