What’s your dream ride?

From the Editor - I wouldn’t consider myself a gearhead, but I like cars. Although my current vehicle is utilitarian and gets me from one place to another, that doesn’t stop me from dreaming about what could be parked in my garage one day—maybe a rugged Jeep or a sleek, sporty convertible.

From the Editor - Humans aren’t born with an innate fear of heights. Research suggests it’s a learned response as babies gain experience crawling and navigating the world on their own. As we grow, our sense of space and danger is developed through our unique experiences of trial and error.

Choose your own adventure
