Vector City Racers: www.vectorcityracers.com

Vector Entertainment and the National Childhood Obesity Foundation want to encourage all you kids out there to make good choices when it comes to playing actively and eating smartly.

Maybe you haven’t heard of Vector Entertainment, but you may know about its multiplayer online game and community, which is called Vector City Racers. This cool interactive game is for kids that are between six and 12 years old.

Well, it just so happens that the time between the ages of six and 12 is a really, really important time for the health, development and growth of your body and mind.

That’s why Vector and the National Childhood Obesity Foundation have decided to get together to bring important information, as well as cool contests and prizes, to kids who play Vector City Racers.

Did You Know? In the last 30 years the childhood obesity rate has more than tripled for kids who are between six and 11 years old?

It’s true, and it’s a very scary fact. That’s why it’s important for all you kids out there to understand how important it is to be active and to make good and healthy food choices.


Basically, we want you to eat smart and play smart. You need to understand what happens when you make bad decisions about eating (like eating too much junk food) and spending too much time playing on the computer or watching TV (you have to be active to be healthy so it’s important to spend just as much time playing outside).

Apparently the domain is on auction? Confused Ah. It's really old, so they might've shut it down or something.

Kid at my school nicknamed "Blueberry". Hated by all the Seniors at the school and the teachers can hardly stand him. If I were to go through everything he's done, I'd be writing a short story. Let's just say, he should have gotten expelled Freshman year. And all the years after that.

Three mean girls at school...I JUST DON'T LIKE THEM. They bunk the classes and never get scolded and they act(ed) very mean to me and  one of my 3 bffs.  They are just OVER SMART and ever they sometimes wish to talk above the teacher. Then comes the Boys. There are 3 boys you know, who are a part of the gang of these mean girls. These boys are also so mean. I ask you, am I untouchable? Whenever I go past their bags, they say, 'hey what are you doing' or something like that... At least they are better in front of the teachers...unlike *SOME* people I could mention. But in spite of all these I really do like them all as friends and I am a pretty good forgetter, so I soon forget whatever they said to me. So, I think there is no one I HATE, practically.

Ok so in my highschool there is only one pure ginger. His name is Sean.... I believe that's how you spell his name. Will this ginger is impossible to deal with. When I'm talking to my friends he butts In thinking he's part of the conversation, but he isn't. So when I decides to try and butt in, I automatically scold him. And I know it seems mean but when someone annoys you to the limit you sort of go Insane ya know? So everytime he gets near me I walk away before he can even open his mouth to talk. I know y'all probably think he isn't bad, but he said himself that he was going to grow up to be a killer and ######. He said it himself and not in a sarcastic tone. Nobody in my school can deal with him. The teachers can't either. But I want to know, do any of you have someone you truly dislike at school?
