Forks were not used in the American or British navies until the 1800s. They were considered to be too effeminate.

Also, the meal trays of the British were made of square pieces of wood, hence the term square meal.

You have two different types of muscles. One that pulls and one that pushes. Some people have overdeveloped one type of muscle and not the other. This is why skinny people can often do limitless pull ups but cannot bench there own weight once.

The machine that was making light bulbs in 1922, is still making light bulbs today.

The General Electric motors used to open and close the locks at the Panama canal, are still being used.

The General Electric motors used in the elevators of the Empire State building, are still being used.

A consumer rated chain saw's motor is designed to last only 5 working hours.
