lamppostsandbromm capsbum Follow totalhamonycycle 4ft 85 Why 4 FEET 85 Inches is Very Important Fascinating Stuff Railroad Tracks The US Standard railroad gauge distance between the rails is 4 feet 85 inches That's an exceedingly odd number Why was that gauge used? Because that's the way they built them in England and English expatriates designed the US Railroads Why did the Engish build them like that? Because the first rail lines were built by the same people who built the pre railroad tramways and that's the gauge they used Why did they' use that gauge then? Because the people who built the tramways used the same igs and tools that they had used for building wagons which used that wheel spacing Why did the wagons have that particular Odd wheel spacing? Well if they tried to use any other spacing the wagon wheels would break on some of the old long distance roads in England because that's the spacing of the wheel ruts So who buit those old rutted roads? Imperial Rome bult the first long distance roads in Europe including England for their legions Those roads have been used ever since And the ruts in the roads? Roman war chariots formed the initial ruts which everyone else had to match for fear of destroying their wagon wheels Since the chariots were made for Imperial Rome they were al alike in the matter of wheel spacing Therefore the United States standard rairoad gauge of 4 feet 85 inches is derived from the original specifications for an Imperial Roman war chariot In other words bureaucracies live forever So the next time you are handed a specification procedure or process and wonder What horse's ass came up with this? you may be exactly right Imperial Roman army chariots were made just wide enough to accommodate the rear ends of two war horses Now the twist to the story When you see a Space Shuttle sitting on ts launch pad you will notice that there are two big booster rockets attached to the sides of the main fuel tank These are solid rocket boosters or SRBS The SRBS are made by Thiokol at their factory in Utah The engineers who designed the SRBS would have preferred to make them a bit larger but the SRBS had to be shipped by train from the factory to the launch site The raliroad Ine from the factory happens to run through a tunnel in the mountains and the SRBS had to fit through that tunnel The tunnel is slightly wider than the railroad track and the railroad track as you now know is about as wide as two horses behinds So a major Space Shuttle design feature of what is arguably the world's most advanced transportation system was determined over two thousand years ago by the width of a horse's ass And you thought being a horse's ass wasn't important Now you know Horses' Asses control almost everything Explains a whole lot of stuf doesn't it? dirichiecee This is the single most mind blowing fact I've read on tumbir every day is a school day-thank you nobelshieldmaiden Nice history lesson theironjacklint My daughter and I were just discussing this very subject Source totalharmonyc Awow histtory unny 5328 notes how space shuttles and horse asses are connected LONG Meme
