    For GAL List 05 (ject = throw), I've included a link to a really cool simulation which allows you to hurl projectiles at targets using a virtual catapult. Change the catapult's trajectory by experimenting with three variables in its design. A perfect shot should subject your target to a severe pounding!

    Below is the video "In the Rough," which contains many examples of conflict. You might need to watch it a couple times to catch all the details.
    Hey! Shawn was right! There's another version of "In the Rough" on Youtube, with different music, different voice overs, and extended scenes. Check it out and note the differences. What an interesting juxtaposition! Thanks, Shawn!
    Here's a really crazy intersection in Hanoi. No traffic lights or police officers direct traffic, yet no accidents occur! By taking their time, paying attention, and driving slowly, cyclists and drivers alike get through safely. American drivers could learn something from this!
