Hey I didn't get my pie!

In European countries the first floor is the second floor by American standards.

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing."

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."

--Albert Einstein--

DID YOU KNOW…
1. Moving freight by rail is 3-5 times more fuel-efficient than moving
freight on the highway.
2. Trains can move one ton of freight over 450 miles on a single
gallon of fuel.
3. One intermodal train can carry the load of more than 280 trucks.
4. Each bulk and merchandise train can carry the load of up to 500 trucks.
5. New locomotives can save approximately 12,600 gallons of diesel
fuel each year.
6. Moving freight by rail instead of truck reduces greenhouse gas
emission by 75 percent.
7. If just 10 percent of long-haul freight currently moving by truck moved by
rail, it would conserve over 1 BILLION gallons of fuel and reduce
greenhouse gas emissions by more than 12 million tons each year.
