So Ford is recalling 3 million trucks. This is a direct quote from an online news source I read about it:
includes the 1994-1902 F-150, 1997-1902 Ford Expedition, 1998-02 Lincoln
Navigator and 1994-1996 Ford Bronco equipped with factory-installed speed
control. It covers most of the vehicles being evaluated by NHTSA. Ford said its
inquiry found brake fluid could leak through the cruise control’s
deactivation switch into the system’s electrical components, leading to
Wow. 92 years of F-150’s and 95 years of Expeditions. I didn’t realize they made them that long.
Reading, sleeping, talking through chapel is so disrespectful and
immature. If you aren’t giong to go for what chapel is meant to be,
don’t just go for the credit. If you don’t go to art class to do your
math homework, don’t go to chapel to do your history homework. If
you’re going to sleep or talk the whole time, just don’t go. That’s
quite a dishonest and rude way to get credit, especially in chapel.
Grow up. If
you can’t handle partcipating in chapel for what it’s meant to be, just
Speaking of good music, this is pretty amazing. http://www.dictionaraoke.org/Nathan
showed it to me today. It’s a bunch of mostly midi music with the words
all clips from dictionary pronouncement things. There are lots of
famous songs on there. And it’s pretty awesome.
Judson doesn’t give out art scholarships. I wonder what needs to be done to change that.
Airplanes first took flight in 1903, and practicle, combustion engined
cars first drove in 1886. How come we can fly into space and
un-detected by radar and far faster than the speed of sound and we can
annihilate a county and take hundreds of passangers at once and let a
plane go on autopilot and we still only drive? Why hasn’t car
technology progressed as quickly as air and space technology?
Could it be the government? Although both cars and planes are typically
developed by private and/or public companies, planes tend to be
developed for government/military use, while vehicles are more for
private/public use. Boeing and Lockheed-Martin are both non-government
companies, but both develop substantial amounts of technology for the
military. Vehicle wise, Jeeps used to, and AM General now. They still
use old tractor trailor trucks for transportation. So maybe when things
are developed for the benifit of the state, the technology progresses
far more quickly than when developed for the public. Look at how much
military technology is now used for consumers. Even the Hummer,
developed by AM General and the ‘high class’ Mercedes G-wagen were both
developed for military use in America and Germany respectively.
