I am a 17 year old studying maths, history and accounting in year 12. I am looking to apply for university in 2021. Playing sports is one of my favourite hobbies. I enjoy playing football and basketball the most. At university I want to study accounting and finance. My favourite music genres are hip hop, reggae and punjabi music.

Listening to podcasts on radio 4 such as Great lives and Crossing Continents I was able to broaden my horizon and develop my critical thinking.

Why do car enthusiasts hate the electric car?

21 August 2020

The electric car is probably one of the most useless ‘revolutionary inventions’ ever created. Being a car enthusiast myself I can comment heavily on the impact the electric car has had on society. In my opinion the goal of the electric car was to make sure that the number of car enthusiasts, driving on the road, were significantly reduced. The key purpose of an electric car is to reduce the number of carbon dioxide emissions. I argue that it has not done this because the number of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is still high. A key example being Methane which is high due to the use of pastoral farming in order to meet high food demands. Also, industrial plants release Sulphur Dioxide into the air which causes acid rain. Out of all three of these gases the one being targeted the most is carbon dioxide.

Personally, I feel attacked that the government was quick to introduce the idea of electric cars into society. My passion is in grave danger from the government and it is ultimately out of my control. Recently the government announced that by 2030 there would be no selling of petrol and diesel cars. This crush me because I don’t want to be driving in something which is powered by the same thing in a TV remote. It’s quite funny because the American inventor, Stanley Allan Meyer made the first water powered car, but he was mysteriously poisoned before he could finish his invention. Therefore, there has to be a big conspiracy behind the introduction of an ‘electric car’. Meyer’s car, in Lehman’s terms, consisted of hydrogen being mixed with oxygen from the air and the product being water. It is clear to see why the government would have wanted him dead.

Some key points why car enthusiasts, like me, hate the ‘electric car’ is because it puts the emphasis on the car dealership to get your car, serviced, fixed and detailed. By this I mean that the battery which powers the car is too complicated to work on at your home. The process to fix these cars involves specialist computer technology which the average joe is not going to know how to use nor afford. Car enthusiasts pride themselves on DIY, we love the nature of breaking, fixing and detailing our cars. From this we develop a connection between the car which is brought about from the huge amounts of time and money put into the car. Every car enthusiast’s car is a representation of their style, taste and personality. The electric car completely restricts this and removes all freedoms from the driver.

In addition to this, the electric car in my opinion had ruined the image of many car manufacturers. Key examples being the Japanese brands such as Toyota, Nissan, Subaru, Mitsubishi and Honda who all have Rally Cross built into their history but now have the responsibility of creating ‘eco-friendly’ cars. Amazing cars such as the Subaru Impreza and Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and Honda S2000 have all been discontinued because world governments have tasked them with making the ‘electric car.’ Toyota who made the Toyota Chaser, won them the Rally Championship multiple times. The Toyota Chaser is one of all-time favourites and I want one as well. If I was in the position where my brand image was being ruined because of the government I wouldn’t ‘even think twice before fighting against the government.

Finally, the electric car puts terrible drivers on the road. Not just the electric car but also modern cars nowadays have too much technology which makes the job of the driver non-existent. This makes it easier for terrible drivers to drive on the roads because the car is doing most of the job for them. For this car enthusiasts hate electric cars.

Raiders of the Lost Ark vs The Truman Show

14 August 2020

Both the films were good films and they both tell amazing stories.

Raiders of the Lost Ark by far is a classic and I could watch it so many times. Since my childhood I've had a soft spot for the Indiana Jones movies because they are just one of a kind. Now going back and watching the Lost Ark again I was able to understand the story a bit more because when I was a kid, I didn't really know what was going on. The character of Indiana Jones exemplifies every young kid's dream of going out into the jungle and exploring the lost treasures of the world. Being intrigued with history it was quite nice to see the constant battle between Jones and the Nazis take place throughout the whole film.

The Truman show was a more comedic film which was meant for kids. The character of Truman Burbank is trapped in life where he is constantly on TV. The main focus of his struggle is to escape his reality and create a new one where he can live a normal life. If I had seen this film as a kid, I think it would have resonated with me a lot more, but I wouldn’t mind watching it again. Overall, if I had to choose which movie was better, I would say the Raiders of the Lost Ark because I love the story and characters a lot more.

Silence of the Lambs vs A Clockwork Orange

7 August 2020

Out of the two films, I preferred the Silence of the Lambs.

I quite liked the character of the evil genius in The Silence of the Lambs. Hannibal Lecter, working closely together with the detective and almost predicting her every move, was entertaining as it showed how intelligent and clever he was. However, when the focus was not on Hannibal, I found myself bored and didn't really care about the plot of the movie.

The story revolves around a detective who needs the help of Hannibal to stop a new murderer on the loose. Hannibal helps the detective but in doing so, he reveals to the detective who she really is by releasing her inner struggles and traumatic experiences. Ultimately, the detective is left lost and traumatised as she was in a way manipulated and exposed when working with Hannibal.

When watching A Clockwork Orange, I was confused throughout the whole of the movie because I had no idea what was going on. The movie showcases the troubles and murders of the main character Alex who is accompanied by a gang. They all take part in murders and raping of women. The movie tries to judge the nature of man and whether or not we are all born evil or learn it through our lives. Also, it expresses whether or not we can help those who are mentally damaged or ill.

Overall, I would say that they are good movies and their purposes are quite clear, but I would not re-watch them because they are not for me.
