How far do you walk before becoming winded/short of breath? I told him that I can't walk that fast...

So, I got to thinking, if 1 horsepower is the amount of energy to move 1 yadayada minute then, Geezer Power is the amount of energy required to move 20 lbs 20 feet in 20 minutes...

@Controller summoned the engineers.

However, as a NY State licensed Math teacher, allow me please to present my #1 favorite math problem:
