Why is United States Perfect?

We often come across views about how beautiful, organized, perfect US is. There are so much things to say but to name few - traffic signals, fly overs looking similar across states, lane standards across states, automatic vending machine that gives from money to cigars, drinks etc.., drive thru food outlets, drive thru brush-less car wash, lined similar looking homes etc.. etc.. so many things to rant about..

A retrospect at what could have lead to this gives interesting thoughts. With limited labor power, vast area, limited population but huge consumption, they got to match supply/demand things at some point. Then comes the big plan of mass production and employing machines to make stuff that one use from the time you wake up to sleep. Important thing to note here is everyone uses the same quality stuff irrespective of where you bought and how big your lifestyle is.

When Apple's Steve Job drives thru Burger King in Cupertino, CA, he gets the same exact weight, quality burger content just like anyone like Joe the Plumber from Ohio gets there. All thanks to great supply chain logistics in place. Mass produced meat from one place, Mass produced bread, Mass produced sauce and every ingredient that goes in is controlled by machines so say potato mash has .2g of salt, each machines in Burger King is set to release the same exact content. Take this and apply to every ingredient that goes into making a burger, every hell in the country gets the same exact size, quality and taste.

Compare this against the making of meals in Indian hotel. Quantity of salt depends on in what degree the chef tilted the salt container - more he tilts more salty the food is; same applies to pulses, spice etc., the amount of time it cooked depends on whether chef gets a phone call or not while he is on the job of cooking, taste of food depends on what brand of spice, pulse the chef got on that day and finally the time you visit hotel have final say on how delicious the food tastes for your bud.

Take another example of Star Bucks, every item that goes in to making the coffee are measured and set in the machines that delivers the same exact quantity and taste to everyone. Apply the same development style to the making of ingredients, and those are made exactly the same way by its machines.

Take the example closer to home, the morning tea. Its dip tea, mass manufactured pockets. The Tea container, its standard size 'small, medium, large' cups. So standard size cup with standard size water. Then comes the sugar, that comes with mass manufactured pockets. So say always a standard 2 pockets i.e. 2g. Mix all. Time to heat. Then comes the Machine Microwave oven. Heat the mix always to standard time 2mins. Everything repeats the same every single day and unarguably  the mix is perfect but its the same perfect taste every day of life. When its perfect every single time, how can it be felt? Perfect from non perfect or even more perfect.

Compare this against typical Indian tea shop, where the quantity of milk that goes into glass depends on number of people visited (to make sure all gets), quantity of sugar depends on its cost at that time in market, the coffee mix is random since its manually added and also depends on the sales, and finally the temperature depends on what time you visit the shop - daytime, outside temp is hot and coffee will be even hotter; night, outside temp is moderate and coffee will be little less hotter than other times. Considering so many variations that goes into coffee/tea, there is so many possibilities of perfect to bad tastes.

Take the example of fly overs. In US, machines play almost all part from controlling the quantity of mix to making the size of structures and placing them in place. So a perfect, standard across the places.

Compare this against India, constructing the fly over has one critical component. How much % of commission was asked by that part of local politician, govt officer in charge. Forget about quality, quantity and standard. With this variation, a bridge may live for 10years to few days(recently a day before Mumbai mono rail bridge collapsed before starting the trail run).

With just these few accounts of comparison, I know why things are so perfect here in US.
