I just bought my second refrigerator. The first one lasted 28 years. I think they forgot the redundancy. The new one has something called Sabbath Mode. Someone on the internet suggested that means it plays Black Sabbath when you open the doors. Alas no. It means special settings to accommodate Orthodox Jewish superstitions about not being able to turn electricity off and on during the Sabbath.
Some immediate questions spring to mind: Will my refrigerator keep bacon OK ? Can it be opened by a menstruating women or will it just go into auto clean mode ? Is there a Pope setting so that it won't keep treats during Lent ? Is there an Islamic fridge that doesn't cool beer ?
More serious questions. Am I right to be vaguely annoyed by this ? It's clearly not the most pressing issue in the world. But like finding I'm in a building with no 13th floor it irritates me.
Maybe I should just chill.
