    The final solution It seems as though Present day Americans have "Super sized" their way of life from what it was in the past.

  • Place A Coin On The Index Card
    465 words
    Newton's First Law of Motion Sir Isaac Newton was in my mind one of the greatest people who ever lived. He was born in 1642 and died in 1727. He formulated three laws of motion that help explain some very important principles of physics. Some of Newton's laws could only be proved under certain conditions; actual observations and experiments made sure that they are true. Newton's laws tell us how objects move by describing the relationship between force and motion. I am going to try to explain hi...

  • Public Transport In Edinburgh
    1,506 words
    PUBLIC vs. PRIVATE - THE PROBLEM OF CITY TRAFFIC. As disposable income has increased over the decades, and the cost, in real terms, of the mass produced vehicle has come down, the numbers of private cars on our roads has increased, whilst the public transport system has become under used, and under funded. Urbanisation in the latter part of the 20th century has caused the concentration of these vehicles within our cities. This project will use Edinburgh as an example of a growing, modern city, w...
  • Car Drifting
    335 words
    PE Research Paper For my research paper I chose to research the Japanese sport of drifting. Drifting is basically getting your car sideways around a corner and holding it sideways until the roads straightens out. The sport of drifting dates back to the late 70's when the world of import tuning started. When people would race they figured out that when going around a turn and popping the clutch it would get your tires spinning so fast that they would loose traction and your car would start to dri...
  • Indian Road Users
    648 words
    Driving in India Traveling in India is an almost hallucinatory mixture of sound and sight. It is frequently heart-rending, sometimes hilarious, mostly exhilarating, always unforgettable - and, when you are on the roads, extremely dangerous. Most Indian road users observe a version of the Highway Code based on some ancient text or on the position of the moon. In general the 12 rules of the Indian road code are: ARTICLE I The assumption of immortality is required of all road users. ARTICLE II The ...
  • Vacation
    268 words
    It was a different kind of road trip. Somehow I knew not to ask, "Are we there yet?" I don't think any of us knew where we would eventually end up that evening. My parents were doing their best to act like this was some type of family vacation. But mom was quiet (she never is), and the car was packed with odd items one would never take on a vacation. Most of what had been packed in the car were diapers and baby formula. My little sister had just been born weeks before this obscure "vacation". Th...

  • Small Country Town
    439 words
    Living on Oak Road When I think of the sounds, sights, and smells of my house on Oak Road I get homesick. It makes me want to go back to the familiar area. My family and I moved here when I was just one year old. It was a small country town with only one store on the corner with clean air and very few cars on the road. We never had any worries as we walked to the corner store. The town always seemed very quiet and undisturbed. As times have changed and I am now eighteen years old, the small coun...

  • Back Into My Car
    1,852 words
    Midget Village One Saturday night, I left the house to go to a friend's house, and the last words that came out of my parent's mouth was to be careful. That statement went in one ear and out the other. People never think that anything would ever happen to them because they take their safety for granted. I told them that I am always careful and I'll be home soon, so I left. I started up my car and fished around in my back seat for my CD case so I wouldn't be bored for the twenty-minute ride to my...
