CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Corey Zinn has always been indecisive. He's whiled away many an evening with friends, struggling to decide what to do.
"I've always had these situations where I have a list of things that I would like to do or eat or whatever, and I don't even care what I do or pick, but for some reason in my head I just can't make a decision," he said.
"I always thought, I wish I could just put it all on a wheel and spin it and let that decide for me."
Zinn, a student at West Virginia University and a Charleston native, has done just that with his new website, www.wheeldecide.com.
The site gives users a spinning wheel to use in case of indecision. It's up to the user to put in the options - up to 50 of them and anything from shoe colors to types of restaurant. But once the user does that and "spins" the wheel with a single click, all the work is done. The wheel makes the decision, landing on one of the options at random.
"Even if you don't end up doing what it actually lands on, it gets you talking and thinking about it differently," Zinn said.
Zinn built the site with his brother, Gareth Lewis. Lewis is the tech-savvy one - he's a software developer in the Detroit area. Zinn, a marketing major at WVU, is more into ideas and figuring out how to bring the site to the masses.
"I think a lot in terms of an entrepreneur," Zinn said. "I've always wanted to just come up with one thing, and it's a great, simple idea and you become successful off that one thing. I guess I'm always subconsciously thinking of things like that."
