Width and advanced design

  In your life, have you ever noticed that some rules and regulations that people follow silently, inexplicably and seemingly sacrosanct, are actually no longer necessary to follow? Many rules are limited to the historical conditions of the time, have you ever made a new attempt in applying certain rules?

  In reading the statistics, Roger found that the width of railroad tracks within the United States was uniformly 4 feet 8.5 inches. Seems like a pretty appropriate width, doesn't it? But what person determined the inexplicable value of 4 feet 8.5 inches as the width of the railroad tracks? After spending some time on it, Roger made some interesting discoveries. The first builders of American railroads were those who built the city's streetcars. It was only logical then to choose the same track width as the trams, not to mention that the trams had been in use for decades.

  The proof is in the pudding: the tracks work fine. The choice does make sense. So what, after all, led to the trams taking this particular value for track width? In the early days of the city's tram construction, many manufacturing companies were converted from horse-drawn carriage manufacturers. These companies brought with them the technology, experience and dimensions to produce horse-drawn carriages. Given this, where did the width of the carriages come from? American carriages came from England. The British national standard states that the standard wheelbase for carriages is 4 feet 8.5 inches, and any carriage that doesn't meet this rule obviously can't exist on the road anymore.

  But it's not over yet, and the final answer is yet to be found. So who built the first roads in Europe again?

  It was the Romans who built the first road system in Europe to facilitate commerce. Also, and more importantly, to help them move troops quickly within their vast empire.

  The vehicles that initially traveled on these roads were Roman chariots. Thus, others who used these roads had to adhere to the widths set by the army, otherwise their axles would easily break. As the Roman Empire standardized weights and measures, the Roman army commanders set the width of the roads at 4 feet 8.5 inches. The wheel spacing of Roman chariots was exactly this width because it was just the right width for two horses to pull the chariot side by side.

  As a result of blind inheritance, eventually the width of the Roman chariot horse's buttocks determined the diameter of the U.S. space shuttle rocket booster.

  And how did it all come about? The company that made the rocket booster is called Thiokol and is located in Utah. Initially, the company designed the rocket booster to be larger than it would later be, but ran into a small problem. To get the booster to the launch site in Florida, a train had to be used, and the train had to travel over mountains and through caves. The train tunnel was only a little wider than 4 feet 8.5 inches. That means the rocket booster would have been stuck in a cave if the original design had been followed. This way Thiokol's design team redesigned the appearance of the rocket booster so that it could pass through the tunnel.

  This is how the width of a horse's ass changed the design of the most advanced propulsion system ever built by man.

  Dr. Schuler's Crystal Church

  Faith plus action, that's the way to achieve your dreams. Support your actions with faith and prove your faith with actions. You will have more opportunities.

  In the spring of 1968, Dr. Rob Schuler set out to build a crystal cathedral out of glass in California. He expressed his vision to the famous designer Philip Johansson: "I want not an ordinary church, I want to build a Garden of Eden on earth."

  When Johansson asked him for a budget, Dr. Schuler said firmly but clearly, "I don't have a penny right now, yet a budget of $1 million or $4 million makes no difference to me. The important thing is that the church itself be attractive enough to attract donations."

  The church's final budget was $7 million, a figure that was beyond not only Dr. Schuler's ability but even his understanding.

  That night, Dr. Schuler took out a blank page, wrote "$7 million" at the top, and then wrote 10 more lines.

  ①Find one donation of $7 million.

  ②Find 7 donations of $1 million.

  (3) Find 14 donations of $500,000.

  ④ looking for 28 donations of $250,000

  ⑤ search for 70 contributions of US$100,000.

  (vi) search for 100 contributions of $70,000.

  (vii) Looking for 140 contributions of $50,000.

  (viii) Finding 280 contributions of $25,000.

  ⑨ finding 700 donations of $10,000.

  ⑩Sell 10,000 windows at $700 each.

  After 60 days, Dr. Schuler impressed wealthy businessman John Colin with a strange and wonderful model of the Crystal Cathedral, and he donated the first $1 million.

  On the 65th day, a farmer couple who listened to Dr. Schuler's speech donated $1,000.

  At 90 days, a stranger touched by Schuler's tireless spirit sent Dr. Schuler a cashier's check for $1 million on his birthday.

  Eight months later, a donor told Dr. Schuler, "If your goodwill and efforts raise $6 million, I will pay the remaining $1 million."

  The following year, Dr. Schuler asked Americans to subscribe to the Crystal Cathedral windows for $500 each, payable at $50 per month in 10 monthly installments. within six months, more than 10,000 windows had been sold.

  In September 1980, the Crystal Cathedral, which took 12 years to complete and can accommodate more than 10,000 people, became a marvel and a classic in the history of world architecture, and a must-see for people visiting California from all over the world.

  The final cost of the Crystal Cathedral was $20 million, all of which was raised by Dr. Schuler bit by bit.

  A home run in life

  In your own life and work, don't shy away from it. If there is a possibility of scoring with a hard hit, why shrink from it again for fear of missing? People who don't want to lose face. And rarely have the opportunity to show their faces.

  Not long ago, an American publishing company published a book called Baseball for Dummies. The book contains a very striking line: You will learn that outs are bad, any hit is good, even though it's hitting the ball out of bounds, and home runs are great.

  If Bibb Ross were alive today, he would tell you this too, and it's all essential to know when you go to a baseball game. Bibb Rose started his baseball career as a baseball pitcher. In 1918, he set a record of 29 scoreless innings, a record that no one has been able to break for 43 full years. He also holds a record for the number of strikeouts in his playing career that no one else has been able to achieve. Despite this, when people think of Bibeau, they don't remember these bad records, they just remember his home run counts. While the vast majority of players were choosing to get on base, Bibeau hit more home runs in countless games than any other player involved in the sport. Because for him, home runs were the only thing he was going to do.

  There are times when we expect the same situation, that is, we just want to go out and run the bases ourselves and not suffer the embarrassment of an out. Whether it's in our personal dealings or our work pursuits, we don't want to hit rock bottom.

  In 1920, Beebe hit more home runs for the New York Yankees than he had ever hit with any other team. Shortly after that season, Yankee Stadium was built and became known as "Beebe's House".
