Pasqualle could hardly hide his joy when he received the quote award for his lowest-cost transmission testing service. The award letter came with some questions, though. And it seemed the transmission manufacturer was going to send out a representative to get them answered. Where was his estimate
for the heightened cost of gasoline? And what was this line item listing out pellet food?
Not a problem. Pasqualle had been expecting this.
The week before the rep arrived, Pasqualle cleaned out the 1000 cages, changed their water, and oiled the ultra-wide 5 hamster wheels, bearings, cogs, and sprockets. Even the third and fourth shift hamsters were antsy to get going.
Needless to say, the transmission engineer was more than impressed to see the collective torque of 5000 hamsters grinding cornmeal and running generators through the means of selective output shafts. Pasqualle released the clutch, changed output shafts, and the transmission test chamber came alive...
1 hp = 4400 hmp

||130 ft-lbs, eh? Not quite enough. The engine I've got to deal with is rated at a peak of 325, and I need to test to failure, with some capacity to run up to 400 or so. Sounds like Pasqualle's pellet food bill is going to break his budget.
||//Let me try it again in english units// sp. "imperial".
UK units are SI.
||you haven't factored in the rate at which hamsters cannibalize eachother.
||you don't frequent my clubs, UB
||I'd love to see a brake specific pellet consumption curve.
||the concept already is in the kids next door cartoons
