As an aside I was totally impressed by German engineering on the breakfast front. You know how, when you go to an English hotel and have a buffet breakfast (the Brittania Nottingham springs to mind…), in the trays with the bacon and stuff there’s always about an inch of grease? Well, in the German ones they line the tray WITH SLICES OF BREAD. Grease soaked up. Simples.
Or Vorspring Dur Technik or whatever.
