When A Car Gets Stuck in Mud: Downsloping

Just another day at the university, a day full of going to one class, looking at the slides, then coming out happy, only to feel sad upon reaching the next class, classes of pure one and a half hour of torture. Then comes the lunch hour, when we are not allowed to have lunch now, until some 20 more days. I recieved a call. A friend's car had stuck in mud, so I heroically went to rescue the car. Have a look:

After 20 cruel minutes of trying to apply Newtonian laws to the rubbery-circular tyre, which kept on skidding as badly as the great skid of China, we finally gave up and went back. Hoping things to dry up soon, I last saw the car being taken in by a tow-truck!
