Today l learned that the new Hyundai Ioniq 5 looks pretty slick, it's fully electric, RWD or AWD... I would consider (RWD) if I needed an electric thingy in my life..

i would've expected you being in the UK to already know this! it apparently originated in england..

they used to breed a dog specifically to turn meat in front of a fire--they were a terrier variation with short stocky legs and high energy. there'd be a hamster wheel mounted up near the fire place connected by a chain to the spit. whenever they wanted to roast meat, they'd put the dog up there to walk the wheel and spin the meat.

Can you please describe the alternate meaning to spinning the meat? For science, I think it would be best to educate us all on your knowledge of meat spins.
