Vehicles and transport.

When things get down to it. What are we transporting ourselves with.
The exception is deseal (wind in the case of sail boats) which uses compression with electricity to get it started as far as I am aware.
Trains, planes, automobiles (including busses), boats, "common" forms of transport.
The "masses" use what is offered to them.
I have fallen pray to this myself I have used a gasoline powered vehicle since I was 18 even though I am staunchly advocating against them.
So the way we burn the fuels is electrical spark ignition. Again this is for the "masses" Yes most if not all busses are deseal, Most if not all Big rig trucks are deseal, Most if not all Large shipping transports are deseal, and planes are running on a kerosene mixture. I am not ignoring that, I just want to discuss public / personal transport.
So the internal combustion engine is burning a fuel while a spark is lighting the fuel. So electricity is required.

Enough said.

Round one: Fight
Compressed gas car comes out of the corner steadily chugging its way forward.
Electric car comes out of its corner quietly moving toward the center of the ring.
OHH NO A new contestant has entered the ring, fast and agile the Alchohol car jumps the top rope, quickly it moves forward punching both commpressed gas and electric car before they can react.
Gasoline powered car leaps into the fray first he knock out stunned commpressed gas, then knocks out electric car, He turns his attention on Alchohal. They start trading furious blows. Alchohal is down, Whats that noise A new competitor just rumbled up, deseal power comes trudging throught the ropes using brute force he nocks Gasoline car to the side. Gasoline is stunned but far from out of the fight, Deseal helps alchohal to his feet. BAM Sucker punch from Gasoline car. Referrees go wild. Whistles are called. Deseal ignores the whistle turns and punches Gasoline across the ring. Gasoline is down again. Alchohal gets up but is to dazed to do much. Deseal begins to trudge to finish Gasoline.
DING End of round one. Oponents to your corners.
Referies hand out your citation cards. The crowd is on thier feet going wild. This is the most excitement the judges have had since the Trompe VS. Nuclear bout.
