Taking Silas Creek Parkway north toward University, there is a huge dip and rise crossing Bethabara. It's just the right size and depth that if one is travelling 45 mph (which is to say the speed limit), and the light at Bethabara is in one's favor, and one drives a car, versus (start pimp gangsta backbeat) a Hummer or (remove pimp gangsta backbeat) a minivan, one's vehicle achieves a lightening. Not lightning, but lightening, that stage just before a vehicle goes airborne. I'm betting one could achieve actual air if one travelled just a smidge faster or, say, drove a Neon. I'm also betting it's a real popular intersection with the high school crowd.
