So you want to be a famous race car driver?
Get behind the wheel and let’s see what you’ve got.
Shuffle the nine Speed cards and deal three facedown to each player. The three remaining
cards form a facedown Pit Deck off to one side.
Look at the three cards you’ve been dealt. If all three show a speed greater than 100,
you can declare a false start and insist that the cards be shuffled and redealt.
Racing cars is all about speed and endurance! After the cards have been dealt, each player
will design a custom race car on their own sheet of paper.
Divide each sheet into four columns: Tires, Fuel, Engine and Speed. Whoever earns the
most speed points without falling below zero in the other columns will win the race.
The numbers you put in these columns will depend on the difficulty of your racetrack.
The Monaco track has a difficulty of 18. That means your first row must add up to a total
of 18 points. You can divide those 18 points however you
like but here are a few sample cars to get you started.
When you’re ready to begin, place one penny on the Lap 1 space and another on the first
section of track. The first section is always marked with an arrow beside the chequered
flag. Race tracks have three types of sections:
BLACK sections indicate hairpin turns; GREY sections indicate gentler curves; and
WHITE sections indicate straightaways. Each section, you and your opponent will choose
a card from your hand and play it facedown. Once you’re both ready, turn your card over,
revealing how fast you’ve chosen to drive through the current section of track.
The driver who played the higher card earns 2 speed points. The driver who played the
lower card earns only 1 speed point. Add your points to the current tally in your Speed
column. That said, going fast is hard on your car.
We’re currently in a GREY section of track. See how the faster driver’s card cost 2 Fuel
while the slower driver’s card cost only 1? Both drivers subtract the costs from the appropriate
columns on their sheet. Once you’re done scoring, each driver takes
the card played by his opponent. The penny then advances to the next section of track.
Continue playing cards, earning Speed points, subtracting your costs, swapping cards, and
advancing the penny until you’ve made it once around the track.
Between laps, the driver with the fewest Speed points must discard a card, removing it from
the game. He then draws a new card from the top of the Pit deck. If tied, the driver who
played the slowest card on the previous section must discard.
Armed with new knowledge of the available cards, the trailing driver advances both pennies
to mark the start of the new lap. Both cars are running low on fuel. Fortunately,
this section of track shows a dotted line, indicating that it’s a Pit Stop. You can
spend Speed points here to repair and refuel your car.
To declare a Pit Stop, simply say “Pit Stop!” and keep your card facedown when it’s time
to reveal. Drivers who make a Pit Stop draw a card from
the Pit deck. After viewing their hand, they return a card to the bottom of the deck. If
both drivers declare a Pit Stop, the one with the most Speed points draws first.
The main reason to declare a Pit Stop is to repair your car. For every Speed point you
spend, your pit crew repairs 3 Tire points, 2 Fuel points, or 1 Engine point.
The driver who did not make a Pit Stop earns Speed points and subtracts costs, as usual.
Drivers in the pit earn no Speed points and subtract no costs. Swap cards and advance
the penny to the next section of track to continue the race.
For a track of this length, each lap should take under 10 minutes. The race can end early,
however, if either driver’s tires, fuel, or engine fall below zero. If that happens,
the other car coasts to an easy victory. If both cars reach the finish line, however,
the winner is the driver with the most Speed points. If tied, the driver who played the
fastest final card wins the race. Thanks for joining me for a few laps, champ!
I can tell you like to go fast. You can take my car out on the track anytime. Go ahead,
here are the keys! You’ve earned them.
I originally thought that our results for Group Stage would be that we wouldn’t drop a single game, and go undefeated. We’ve already lost a match so I hope in the next matches,
we will give it our all and play well in every game and go 5-1. Right now, we are really hungry for that first win. Once we pick up a win, it’ll be the beginning of our hope.

Hi I’m John Green and this is Crash Course.
Can we get these books to roll in in the future? It doesn’t feel like Crash Course unless
there’s a roll in. [Theme Music] Today, before we begin our mini-series on
reading and writing in English, we’re going to discuss how to read and why.
So, if you watched our series on world history, you’ll no doubt remember that writing (and the ability
to read it) are so-called markers of civilization. Now, that’s a really problematic idea. I mean, for one thing, great stories can have great lives in the oral tradition. Like, one of my favorite books, Mules and Men by
Zora Neale Hurston, was a collection of folklore that lived in the oral tradition until Zora
Neale Hurston wrote it down. And the same can be said for another of my
favorite books, The Odyssey. But we privilege reading and writing because
they allow us to communicate directly and transparently with people who live very far
away from us, and they also allow us to kind of hear the voices of the dead.
I mean, I don’t want to get all liberal arts-y on you, but I want to make this clear;
for me, stories are about communication. We didn’t invent grammar so that your life
would be miserable in grade school as you attempted to learn what the Marquez a preposition
is. By the way, on this program, I will be inserting names of my favorite writers when
I would otherwise insert curse words. We invented grammar because without prepositions,
we couldn’t describe what it’s like to fly through a cloud, or jump over a puddle,
or Faulkner beneath the stars. Like, right now, if I’m doing my job, and
you’re doing your job, you aren’t thinking about the fact that I’m contorting my mouth
and tongue and vocal chords to create sounds that then exist as ideas in your brain; it’s
just happening. But if my language gets confusing — if I parles
en francais or incorrect word order use or eekspay inyay igpay atinlay, then I erect
a barrier between you and me. You and I? You and me.
Writing–or at least good writing–is an outgrowth of that urge to use language to communicate
complex ideas and experiences between people. And that’s true whether you’re reading
Shakespeare or bad vampire fiction, reading is always an act of empathy. It’s always
an imagining of what it’s like to be someone else. So when Shakespeare uses iambic pentameter, or Salinger uses a red hunting cap, they aren’t
doing this so that your English teachers will have something to torture you with.
They’re doing it, at least if they’re doing it on purpose, so the story can have
a bigger and better life in your mind. But, for the record, the question of whether they’re
doing it on purpose is not a very interesting question. Oh, we’re still doing open letters? An Open Letter to Authorial Intent. But first,
let’s see what’s in the secret compartment today. Oh, it’s a boat beating against the current,
borne back ceaselessly into the past. Dear authorial intent, As an author, let me
speak to you directly. You don’t matter. Look, I’m not willing to go as far as the
postmodernists and say that the author is dead because that would make me very nervous.
However, the author is not that important. Whether an author intended a symbolic resonance
to exist in her book is irrelevant. All that matters is whether it’s there because the
book does not exist for the benefit of the author. The book exists for the benefit of
you. If we, as readers, could have a bigger and
richer experience with the world as a result of reading a symbol and that symbol wasn’t
intended by the author, we still win. Yes, inevitably, reading is a conversation
between an author and a reader. But give yourself some power in that conversation, reader. Go
out there and make a world. Best wishes,
John Green Here’s the thing: It is extremely hard to
get other people to feel what we are feeling. Like, you may have experienced this in your
own life. Say my college girlfriend broke up with me…and she did.
I want to explain what I’m feeling to my best friend in the entire world. So I say,
I am completely OBLITERATED. My HEART IS BROKEN. In fact, my heart is SHATTERED INTO A MILLION
PIECES. Right, so, a few things are going on here:
First, in excellent news, my heart has not been shattered into a million pieces. It is
pumping blood in precisely the same way that it did before the breakup.
Secondly, in further good news, I am not totally obliterated. Total obliteration of me would
look like this. I’m using the techniques of hyperbole, in
the case of obliteration, and metaphor, in the case of my broken heart, to try to describe
the things that are happening inside of me. But because I’m not using particularly compelling
or original figurative language, my friend may struggle to empathize with me, and this
is my BEST FRIEND in the entire world. Now imagine that you’re trying to communicate
far more complicated and nuanced experiences and emotions. And instead of just trying to
communicate them to your best friend, you’re trying to talk to strangers, some of whom
may live very far away and, in fact, live centuries after your death.
Not only that, but instead of this happening during a pleasant conversation, they are reading
your dry, dead text on a page. So they can’t hear your intonation or see
the tears dripping from your cheeks even though it turns out that this breakup is going to be one
of the best things that ever happened to you. So THAT is the challenge that Shakespeare faces, and it’s also the challenge that
you face whenever you write for an audience, whether it’s a novel or a pedantic YouTube
comment about the accuracy of our Gallifreyan. Hush! This is fantastic Gallifreyan.
So I’m going to ask you to read critically, to look closely at a text and pay attention to the
subtle ways the author is trying to communicate the full complexity of human experience, but I’m not asking
you to go symbol-hunting because reading is supposed to be some treasure map in which you discover
symbols, write them down, and then get an A in class. I’m asking you to read critically because
by understanding language, you will 1. Have a fuller understanding of lives other
than your own, which 2. Will help you to be more empathetic, and
thereby 3. Help you to avoid getting dumped by that young
woman in the first place, although more importantly 4. Reading critically and attentively can give you the linguistic tools to share your own story with more precision. And that will help people to understand your
joy and your heartbreak, yes, but will also be helpful in many other ways, like when you
are trying to convince the company to move forward with your fourth quarter strategy
or whatever it is that people with real jobs do. Reading thoughtfully gives us better tools to explain corporate profits and broken hearts.
And it also connects us to each other. The real reason the green light in The Great
Gatsby is such a wonderful symbol is because we all know what it’s like to be outside
in the evening, staring off into the distance at a future that may never be ours.
We’ve all felt that stomach-churning mix of yearning and ambition that Gatsby feels as he
stares out at that green light across the harbor. And by knowing what it’s like to be Gatsby, we learn more about those around us, those who
came before us, and we learn more about ourselves. So, over the next few weeks, we’ll be reading not just Gatsby but also Romeo and Juliet,
some poetry by Emily Dickinson, and The Catcher in the Rye. There are links to get all of
these books in the video info below. We’ll begin with Romeo and Juliet next week. I’ll
see you then. Crash Course is produced and directed by Stan
Muller. Our script supervisor is Meredith Danko. The associate producer is Danica Johnson.
The show is written by me. And our graphics team is Thought Bubble.
If you have questions about today’s video, you can leave them in comments where they
will be answered by our team of experts. And if you haven’t already, read Romeo and Juliet.
It’s a very good play, although at times derivative of West Side Story.
Thanks for watching Crash Course. And as we say in my hometown, don’t forget to be awesome.
– Last week, we surprised
a preschool teacher at her home in San Diego.
Take a look. Ana?
