Automotive Fun!

Here's a game to play in the car, next time your muffler falls off and you haven't had a chance (or the money) to get a new one: while driving on at highway speeds, tune your car stereo to your local classical station and then vary your speed such that the pitch of your un-muffled engine matches the tonic of the work being played on the radio at that moment. This doesn't work so well if they're playing Schoenberg or any other Serialist, but with Mozart or Beethoven, it's a lot of fun.

(Not a good game for rush hour, though. It pisses off the other drivers.)
