I guess I can put this item in the context of words. Maybe it is about form and function, limits, reasonability or common sense.
Anyway, I will try it. I own a Honda van. Actually, we own two Hondas since my wife drives an Accord.
For some strange reason, I was looking at the speedometer recently. No, it wasn’t because I saw a cop with a radar gun. Have you ever notices the numbers shown on a speedometer?
Isn’t it strange that the posted speed limits are mainly 25, 35, 55, etc. but these number do not show on my dashboard. I almost have to estimate where the right spot is between 20 mph and 30 mph to say within the limit.
The main curiosity on my speed dial is that it goes to 160 mph. 160! Give me a break. No one would or could do that in an Odyssey van even on the Salt Flat racing grounds. (My wife’s car only goes to 150 so I guess I could beat her in a race.)
The only explanation I can figure is that since the display is round, they needed all those number to fill space. Why not just leave it blank?
So, I guess this is just one of the mysteries of life.
While I sit and contemplate it, I will put something on the microwave oven and “nuke” it for 45 minutes. (But maybe that is another post for another day.
