Cameron McKinley's Milner civics lab

Lab #2
This is my lonely cellphone, that I did not use for a painful 31 hours straight. Life was hard. I felt out of touch. At first was the hardest.
It's hard adjusting to not being able to communicate with your social networking sites, answers, or your friends with the touch of a button.
I found myself finding other ways to spend my time, without texting and talking. By the end of 31 hours, I felt much less reliant on my cellphone.

Lab #4
When polled, almost 75% of Americans do not trust their fellow American to return to them 50$ if they were to drop it out in the world.
This shows how we have become a very greedy and untrustworthy society, which brings instability within our community.
Lab #13
In a sense, cars do kill community, but at the same time they create another community. Whereas you may not be a close community near to where you live, but cars enable you to travel farther, faster, and more efficently. life without cars we could, and have done before. With cars we are able to transport ourselves and information quicker, but without cars we would simply compensate. Life would not be running so quickly, and you would not be expected to travel far distances quickly. Without cars, you would not have to worry about traffic!


_Lab #19
If the entire world were to get rid of their own transportation, except walking or biking, and used public transportation, the world would be a much different place in the following ways. There would not be nearly as much pollution, being that there would be many less vehicles in our world. Governments would concentrate on creating usable, efficient transportation for our communities, and our lives would be much safer. So many deaths each year are because of people transporting themselves, and if trained professionals are in charge of the transporting, the world should be much safer.
