These days, the whole thing would be done with CGI and shakycam footage of dirt bikes and street racers set to Xtreme Sport Music.
Thank you, 1950s!
(there needs to be an 'I learned something' tag)
-1 for the long, irrelevant and useless intro to wich i exclaim WTF!
Also, I learned all that as a kid with Technic Lego blocks.
Original Ghost Riders (at 9:00) dropping the science.
Damn that was informative!

God damn you Steve Airport.

Amazingly simple or... simply amazing?!
I'll never be a good mechanic but damn is it interesting. That would have taken me 100 lifetimes to devise.

"Generations ago, my family invented the differential gear. I guess I've always had some pretty big shoes to fill. But to be honest, I've never been half the engineer old Rudy Ackermann was. Then it hit me: I would add another gear.
They all told me I was crazy, that there were already enough gears, that it was an affront to God and nature. I wouldn't have it; I was tired of living in the shadow of a corpse. The "Improved Differential" hit the market May 15th 2039.
On May 15th, 2039, 5 billion people died.
Everyone I ever loved, everyone I ever hated. They're all gone now. It's just me and my gears. These fucking gears. Their single eyes both accusing and mocking me, never blinking, never sleeping. But I will be their master some day. A gear got us into this, and a gear will get us out."
