Scientific Method in Real Life
Part I. It was the finals of the 2004 swimming state championships. I was seated second in the 100-yard individual breaststroke. My heart was pounding as I swam my warm up laps. I would have to drop about a second or so to have any shot at the title and the gold. I hopped out of the warm up pool, and headed over to grab my towel and work out a strategy plan with my coach.

This however will not affect me in having to change the way I live my life. I will still continue to eat the same foods that I do now, and work out the same as well.

These resources consist of oil, coal, or land. This affects me personally because once these materials run out, they will not be able to be replaced by the snap of one’s fingers.
