This was originally called The C Word, but Tesco thought that might be seen as offensive. ‘How about if we add an ‘s'?' asked my publisher. ‘No problem,' said Tesco.

Greyhound

A greyhound can accelerate from 0 to 45 mph in 1 second. This makes it the second-fastest accelerating animal on the planet, after the cheetah. A really striking way of learning about bio-mechanics - the greyhound can accelerate that quickly because it's so light, yet has such powerful legs. When the BBC's Top Gear raced one against a Mazda MX5 the greyhound accelerated more quickly - the Mazda has so much more weight to shift.
