No, not yourself, but your car. Recently I was shocked to find out the amount of damage that can be done to a cars paintwork by following the age-old tradition of plonking a sponge in a bucket of warm water and then dragging it over theÂ body. Or even worse visitingÂ your localÂ Shell garage toÂ pay Â£5 forÂ that 'ultra clean' look. In reality, this appearance is farcical when examined in the sunlight. The image below shows a typical paint surface, visible on millions of cars because of the wrong technique employed in the washing stage:
Today, the world celebrates the first mixed race president of the United States of America. However, despite his rhetoric, awe-inspiring speechmaking and total embodiment of theÂ AmericanÂ Dream, can he deliver?
Barack Obama's path to the White House started in the New Year and has now resulted in his confirmed presidency and the dawn of a new America.
Replacing George W Bush from the world's top job is a mean feat and offers the world a chance to glimpse life in this newly sudden utopia generated hysterically by the American electorate and globally.
What is telling from this latest money spinning campaign, which involved Obama's employment of Facebook's founder Chris Hughes helping his cause, is that Obama means business.
When I woke up this morning, I'll admit that who won the presidency did not immediately spring to mind. It was more "shit, my fish is dead." Thankfully George wasn't actually dead, he just wasn't moving at the moment in time...
Barack Obama to me represents a massive step forward for the United States. He embodies their nations new ability to accept change and make up for the past. Essentially, America overwhelming voting for a Black president means that it is moving away from what it knows, the traditional candidates and choosing equality and something different.
Obama is the key factor in helping America overcome racism. I think he is exactly the man to unite the country and I respect him even more for deciding to pull troops out of Iraq.Â
