Math problem for today

Janna is driving on the highway, listening to the radio.
Her destination is 80 miles away, and her speed averages 55 mph.
Taking into account a 10-minute refueling stop, how long will it be before she sorrowfully pounds her head on the steering wheel because the radio refers to her favorite high school-era songs as "OLDIES"??

Fab took the words right out of my fingers. Even a horse with a carriage in the back would do.

I saw Back to the Future on the Classic Movies channel a few years ago.

It doesn't belong there!!

Mr. Fab: HEY!! It's an average, not a constant speed. See the explanatory post I just did.

Bee: Historic is better than "ancient"!! (I guess....)

Brilliant donkey: Dammit, you guys... Go read the explanatory post...

Lynda: I agree!
