I didn't realize you had such a sense of humor, but agreed, "revving up our motors" doesn't cut it.

Not sure if I should mention this but Samantha and I have been discussing Engine and motor.

I think she's leaning towards "revving up our Engines"!!

Brilliant song.

Thanks
Randy

Extensive research has led to the exact source of the engine meme; circa 1963: Brian Wilson and Roger Christian.

My job is done.

Shut Down
The Beach Boys
Tach it up, tach it up
Buddy gonna shut you down
It happened on the strip where the road is wide
(Oooo rev it up now)
Two cool shorts standin' side by side
(Oooo rev it up now)
Yeah, my fuel injected Stingray and a four-thirteen
(Oooo rev it up now)
Revvin' up our engines and it sounds real mean
(Oooo rev it up now)
Tach it up, tach it up, tach it up
Buddy gonna shut you down
Declinin' numbers at an even rate
(Oooo movin' out now)
At the count of one we both accelerate
(Oooo movin' out now)
My Stingray is light the slicks are startin' to spin
(Oooo movin' out now)
But the four-thirteen's really diggin' in
(Oooo movin' out now)
Gotta be cool now power shift here we go
Superstock Dart is windin' out and low
But my fuel injected Stingray's really startin' to go
To get the traction I'm a ridin' the clutch
My pressure plate's burnin' that machine's too much
Pedal's to the floor hear the dual quads drink
(Oooo pump it up now)
And now the four-thirteen's lead is startin' to shrink
(Oooo pump it up now)
He's hot with ram induction but it's understood
(Oooo pump it up now)
I got a fuel injected engine sittin' under my hood
(Oooo pump it up now)
Shut it off, shut it off buddy now I shut you down
Shut it off, shut it off buddy now I shut you down
Shut it off, shut it off buddy now I shut you down
Shut it off, shut it off buddy now I shut you down
Shut it off, shut it off buddy now I shut you down

Interestingly, manufactures rate Engine Torque in lb-ft, not ft-lb.but that's another discussion...
Of course, because one is energy and the other is...no, wait let's not go down this path.... #-o

We don't slug Kevin, healthy debate is very educational, even entertaining!!

I forwarded Tucker Carlson's erroneous comment even though you may have found it exculpatory.

We seek the answers through discussion and neither of us has uttered a disparaging word!!

I like the lb-ft, vs ft-lb discussion but maybe it's been covered previously.

Thanks
Randy

"The Slug is the unit of mass in the US common system of units, where the pound is the unit of force. The pound is therefore the unit of weight since weight is defined as the force of gravity on an object."

Appreciate the education Bill!!

This is an example of how I've come to respect Kevin so dearly.

He can make a little comment with much weight but never causticly.

Admittedly, it flew right over my head and I probably would have never caught it.

Makes me wonder how many more I've missed so I'll have to pay closer attention.

While I'm not educated I love learning from the educated who have the ability to teach.

Kevin has the rare combination of both and fortunately he chooses to share, with humor.

I have to see things with my "mind's eye" to understand and Kevin and you opened it a bit wider.

Easy to see how aural perception affects languages, eh?

There is a developmental window in the brain where the different possible sounds of human speech are perceived. Once the window closes, a sound not used in communication is no longer attended to (a term of art). Variations are then predictable.

I'm not exactly sure what you're saying Kevin but as a youngster I enjoyed listening to oldtimers.

If they were discussing say 1909 they would always say 19 ought 9 or just ought 9, never 19 OOH 9.

It took me awhile to realize O is a letter and not a number, obviously they were correct !

Naught meant nothing but different from zero, I tried to repair it but "it was all for naught".

Probably was a colloquial thing, another was a vehicles refusal to "answer" the driver.

The road was so muddy or icy etc "she wouldn't answer me" as in response to steering input.

My favorite was an old timer bragging how durable his 1949 Chevy 1300 pickup was.

I had her up to "ZED eye ZED" again last night and she never let me down, "she's a tough old girl".
