#39 - "The Drive Chain"

#40 was the sailboat as Milt, Tony, Joani, and Elaine figured out. So close with a great guess of the compass was Michelle.

"The Drive Chain"

This is my first image from the Haul of Fame to share with you! This graveyard of rusting trucks, buses, and earth-moving equipment was a photographer's paradise. Our small group spent several hours moving about the acreage of the yard. Amazing in that we came back with hundreds of different views of the used vehicles - they were very few duplicates among what we shot.

Here, the drive chain was coiled around the rear sprockets. Reminded me of the chain that powered my Raleigh bike back when. This one was about ten times the thickness and weight as the one I remembered.

Greatest Inventions of All Time!
Recently I came across an article about the greatest inventions as determined by a large group of scientists, philosophers, educators, and other professions. Their task was to create a list of "the Greatest Inventions of All Time." Conveniently, the final list numbered fifty! so, I'm starting with #50 and working my way down to Numero Uno in December.

Fear not as I will offer you some hints as to what the invention was.


Fueled the modern economy, established its geopolitics

The earliest attempts in modern times were accomplished, by repeatedly raising and dropping a cable tool into the earth. In the 20th century, cable tools were largely replaced with a rotary technique, which could reach much greater depths and in less time. 

Until the 1970s, most of these were vertical, however, modern technologies allow for them to be horizontal.

I realize these clues are not very helpful so if you still need help, go to the bottom of this week's blog for multiple choices. . . 

Murphy's Laws

Q’s Law. . .

No matter what stage of completion one reaches in a project, 
the cost of the remainder of the project - 
remains the same!
