That was random. Thanks!
Geek, nice job on the explanation! I enjoyed that.
I grew up on a family farm in the AR delta.
We used to raise cotton and soybeans using a "row crop" format.
The rows were spaced 38" from each other, and they remained so even after equipment transitioned from 2 rows wide, to 4 rows wide, to 6 rows wide, to ........... well, you get the picture.
When I was a kid I asked Dad, "why do we use 38" rows"?
He said that bascally it was a distance that worked well when they used to farm with horses and mules ... and they just never bothered to change it once they started farming with tractors.
It was a width that animals could walk through without trampling or damaging the crops too much. We had not farmed with draft animals for 45 years ........... and yet the row width had not changed, eventhough the mechanical equipment that we farmed with had changed and grown by a large factor.
We certainly are creatures of habit, aren't we?
And I noticed that at 38" for one, and 4' 8 1/2" for two, that we had bigger horses asses than did the Romans! :huh
an anecdote frequently told in engineering classes too
that anecdote always put me to sleep in engineering class.....
All this talk of train tracks needs a soundtrack...

That (and others like it) were my favorite songs to play when I played in an orchestra.

(Romane is one bad mofo... even in his salmon jacket)

Technically 3 (thumb included)
I like Romane's style because it's so fluid, but prefer listening to Django. When I'm in the mood to practice and expand my style, I "try" to tackle Djanjo's "Billet Doux" (one of his slowest!) with my 1st, 2nd, and thumb... still haven't made it to the fast break smoothly!
Would somebody please buy a ridiculously expensive new bike? We desperately need some snow...
Well there is this - SRV!
" STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN " VOODOO CHILE....YOU HAVE TO SEE IT ......THE BEST......
I saw him many times, a few of them before he was well known.
One of the first times, he actually played at a junior college in northern California.... I heard him start Voodoo Chile slight return and got up at the foot of the stage. Pretty awesome evening in a small venue like that.
All the other times were at large outdoor places like Concord Pavilion
Still good riding around here.
Now that was randomness, and awesome randomness at that!
That was awesome! Made my day.
