#40 - "Pump Gauge. . ."

#41 was the rocket as Peyton, Tony, Mike, Elaine, and Joani figured out!

"Pump Gauge"

Back to the Charles River Museum for this week's "industrial." Over in the corner there was a vintage gasoline pump. It was interesting but not worthy of wasting a frame on my SD card. Off to the side there was the gallons pumped indicator. Now I had something! I came in very tight - filling the entire frame with the gauge. Yes, that is a light source above the numeral window. 

There was no info as to why there were both positive and negative digits on the pump (could it be that the pump sucked gas from your vehicle???) 

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.

transformed travel, warfare, and our view of the world!

This invention  is thought to have made its debut in Mesopotamia, over five thousand years ago - though primitive by today’s standard. Unfortunately this device was restricted in its movement - one direction primarily.

The Vikings, on the other hand, were different. They were stubborn and slave-less, and refused to be told by the elements were they could or could not go. The Vikings perfected the bottom of #40

Over the years adjustments were made to the equipment to reach the sophistication of today’s products
