The Distance Between

The distance between railway tracks, 143.5cm (4ft 8 ½ inches). Why this particular measurement? The first train carriages were built with the same tools as horse drawn carriages. So, why that particular distance between the wheels of the carriage? Because that was the width of the old roads that the carriages had to travel along.… Continue reading The Distance Between


The Hundredth Monkey

I recently read a study conducted in 1952. Reliability and the actual occurrence of the study even taking place was called into question, that it may just be a myth.

Meant to be Felt (The Range of Human Emotion)

Do not have a bad thought about anyone. Do not say bad things about others. Refrain from being negative. Do not get angry at others. Don’t show too much happiness around others (people may misinterpret your feelings). Be positive at all times and wish everyone well. Most important of all, whatever you do, DO NOT… Continue reading Meant to be Felt (The Range of Human Emotion)
