Things That Make You Go Hmm…

Why do speedometers mark the fives (15, 25, 35, 45...) instead of the tens. If you answer, most speed limits are marked in fives, I will then ask you, why are most speed limits marked in fives instead of tens?*

Write me up for 125
Post my face, wanted dead or alive
Take my license, all that jive
I can't drive 55!
Oh, yeah!
I can't drive 55!
I can't drive 55!
I can't drive 55!
I can't drive 55!

* I was once in a parking garage where the speed limit was 8 miles per hour. What's up with that?

  1. I used to drive on a mountain road in Northern California that had a speed limit of 14 mph in one area and 11 mph in another. Felt kind of Twilight-Zonish.
