Many U.S. states have laws on how speed limits are meant to be set, but quite often the limits are set arbitrarily without fulfilling all of the requirements (speed studies, etc.). This means that they are unenforceable from a legal standpoint. Next time you get a speeding ticket, look into your state laws.

Harley Davidson

In 1901, 21-year old William S. Harley drew up plans to create a small engine to power a bicycle.

Over the next 2 years, Harley and his childhood friend Arthur Davidson, built their motor-bicycle out of their friends 10′-15′ wooden shed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It was the equivalent of garage because they didn’t have cars.

They officially founded Harley-Davidson in 1903 and today it’s the most well-known motorcycle in the world.

Google

Stanford graduates, Larry Page, and Sergey Brin, started what is now known as Google from Susan Nojicicki’s garage in September, 1998.

Soon the project was interfering with their schoolwork, so they tried to sell it to Excite for $1 million. Excite rejected the offer, and now Google is the most trafficked site in the world.
