Stream of Facts
Vinegar has many uses in laundry, including the direct
application to remove tough, worked-in stains. Adding 1/2
to one cup of vinegar to a laundry load can help limit STATIC
and lint cling to your clothes.
STATIC friction, a force much greater than that of kinetic
(or sliding) friction in the tire of an automobile, is the force
that designers based the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
off of in order to prevent skidding during undesirable roads
conditions. The idea that you should pump your brakes
during skidding is a misconception in modern times, as the
majority of new cars come equipped with ABS. This system
took the PLACE of the practice, rendering it futile.
On July 4, 2008, the Independence Mall in Philadelphia
was the PLACE of display for a one ton carving of cheese.
Commissioned by Cheez-It Snacks and carved by veteran
cheese carver Troy Lanwehr, the display depicted John
Trumbull’s painting, Declaration of Independence. “The Big
Cheese,” as Cheez-It calls it, toured the nation proclaiming
the snack’s bIg cheese taste.
BIG, a 1988 film starring actor Tom Hanks, is about a boy
who wishes himself old through a fortune telling and wishgranting
machine. The film was one of five “body swap”
movies released within that three-year period. The other
four include 18 Again! (1988), Like Father Like Son (1987), Dream
a Little DREAM (1989), and Vice Versa (1988).
Tobacco withdrawal translates over to the DREAM world
for a lot of quitters in the midst of abstinence. In a study of
293 smokers trying to quit, about one third of the subjects
reported having dreams about smoking. Studies have found
that abstinence not only influences content, but many times
the vividness of the dream EXPERIENCE.
Steven Spielberg pulled out of his EXPERIENCE of being the
Artistic Advisor to the opening ceremonies of the Beijing
2008 Olympics in an effort of protest against the Chinese
government’s investment in Sudanese oil. Spielberg believed
that China was not making a strong enough effort towards
ending the violent conflict between Sudanese military and
rebel forces in Darfur.
