John Green: Author, Internet Celebrity, Race Car Driver

John Green, known for funny books about sad stuff, traded in his pen for a Corvette yesterday. Which is a pretty awesome trade if you ask me.

In a very unlikely industry crossover, John Green will be driving the pace car for the Angie's List Grand Prix in Indianapolis next month.

The author and vlogger took a couple practice laps with his wife, and it was an emotional experience for him:

[my wife] looked over at me at one point and said, 'Are you crying?' And I said, 'A little'."

Turns out, Green is a huge IndyCar fan. He even participates in a fantasy league.

If you ever meet John Green and you're not sure what to talk about, IndyCar might be a great way to go. Here are some suggested phrases, based on info from the IndyCar web site:

Isn't it amazing how IndyCar is the first and only motorsport to embrace ethanol, which burns cleaner, resulting in less pollution released into the environment?

How about that 3M Wheel Weight System, constructed of non-lead composite materials for reduced environmental impact?

I just read that the first rear-view mirror was created for the Indianapolis 500. Also, I love you.

It seems to me that we must think about protecting the batteries properly, so that they don't shift constantly. I've had a similar experience, and I recall that solving these problems was quite difficult. Especially in winter, I had to change batteries twice a season, often because they constantly freeze, etc. But then I knew friends told me that there are ways to protect the battery and I submitted this article to read avtotachki.com/en/7-sovetov-kak-prodlit-zhizn-akkumulyat/ and only after reading the article was it very helpful for me and I realized it wasn't as hard and how to do the same thing and what very good tips to protect it are. I personally suggest researching this article and getting to know the specifics, so you don't have battery problems and at least save your battery from temperature fluctuations and other indicators in the future.
