IIRC, a horsepower was the amount of power needed to raise a particular weight to a particular height in a particular amount of time. Turned out they calculated it wrong and it's about .66% of a real horse's power.

Assuming you mean 66% and not .66%, that would mean that 2 horses have about 3 horse power. Neat trick.

James Watt used a horse of his day, which was punier than those of today.
Clydesdales and Percherons weren't that puny back then.

Read up on the history of the horse power here, at your leisure. Just as much hocus-pocus as religion with all the chicanery and deceit. Us physicists use watts for power for a reason.

Here you go. You can put the video right in the comment with the TV shaped button at the top. Smile

I think that dude just admitted to a felony on-camera.

Edit to Add: To be fair, this is still a kinder method than that employed for "spreading the word of the Lord" through most of the history of Christianity.

The pinhead ended up claiming/admitting that he made it up. I don't know what the end result was. It was a dick move, either way.

Thumbsup back atcha! Cool! I used to work in aerospace, and at one time I spin-balanced spacecraft. When I first started there, I read the procedure paper-work, and it was in Slug-Feet^2. I had some culture shock, but it all worked out. Laugh out load
