we used to have grade 13 a long time ago that was more like University/Colege prep but they got rid of it. Ya the only difference between the two systems (from what I know which may be wrong) is the way you count the grades like you guys bese it on were you're going and we base it one were we got to. (like for us it's the equvilent of saying a baby is in there first year vs a year old, get it?)

Actualy I do *insert stunned face here*... good explanation ;D

I'm trying to make one this summer! I'm going to turn one of the bedrooms in our house into a Mag-room and try hoverboarding in there!

Can you post a link to anything like it or to explain more... sounds good :)

And if you are actually trying to do this, I would be glad to help and fund some of the project :)

Hoverboards would be really, really fun! And easy, if we covered the ground with the metal grids (as stated before), they would just both have to be the same pole in the ground and the bottom of the hoverboard, so they would push away instead of pull together. But, no, thinking about it, because I mean, what if the pull/push was too strong the the board literally FLIPPED over to the opposite side? This would send the rider either flying off the board, or they could be (again, literally) squashed between the force when the north and south poles pull together! This could really happen if the magnets are strong enough. I don't know if this makes any sense because I am extremely tired, but thinking about this, you have to consider some of the bad things that could happen, too. Like they say, "The optimist invents the airplane, the pessimist invents the parachute."

And we should be able to switch the poles with the flip of a switch. That way, if there is an invading army, we could pin them down to the ground.
