Or one with spoked rim, though I am guessing that pic is not from the US.

How about the sign that says Remagen, or the ones in German?

Pretty dark pix. Hopefully they'll be lighter during daylight. :norton

Ditto, and I was surprised it nothing to do with guys living in grass huts.

Or, surprisingly, the study of tribbles.

From Wiki:

Tribology is the science and engineering of interacting surfaces in relative motion.

And amazingly, I still have no idea what it means. :cry

My guess: Something to do with bearings??

Close. We are the science of friction, wear, and lubrication. I'm on the lubes side, I do metal forming operations like deep drawing, wire drawing, casting, forging, etc. I make it possible to make the parts. For fun (blue sky R&D), I do test method development. It's a living.....

Don't ask us about oil. We will talk about brakes and tyres all day, though. Or, at least, I will.

*Tribbles* :facepalm: That absolutely *never* gets old.
