[MBZ] OT: Who would have guessed?

2021-06-15 Thread Andrew Strasfogel via Mercedes
*necessity is the mother of invention…*Businesses have been finding
innovative solutions to labor issues forever. For example, dogs were once
bred to cook, according to *Popular Science’s* podcast, *The Weirdest Thing
I Learned This Week*.7

When people relied on fire to roast meat, the spit was an invaluable tool.
However, turning a spit for hours wasn’t a popular job, so dogs were bred
and trained to turn spits. “The first mention of the turnspit dog…was in
1576…The long story short here is that people bred terrier-like dogs to…fit
easily into these treadmills that powered various kitchen aids, but
primarily the roasting spit.”7

By some accounts, the poor working conditions of turnspit dogs in New York
hotels contributed to the founding of the American Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).7

I have had real issues with Fedex.  Our house is on the edge of a zip code
and on a couple occasions they simply refused to drop off the package.
When I went to PU at their depot they would not let me do so under any
circumstances, despite having been told over the phone this is what I
needed to do.  No such problem with USPS or UPS.

Never seen a brown W123 coupe before. Could be a steal at $3k.  Looks like
someone got angry (or was plastered) and stabbed the front seat with a
