The Anacreon Song

This song was the inspiration for the National Anthem, along with Francis Scott Key's poem The Defense of Ft. M'Henry.  Our national anthem is inspired by a popular 18nth century drinking song.

Drag racing

In a restaurant they had Drag Racing on a TV. The racer obtained 205 MPH in 6 seconds. I did some math and got 1.55 horizontal G forces, which is amazing. The net G force combined with the earth's gravity is close to 2.

It is my understanding that some electric vehicles can do better.

Best wishes,
