You left out the dead Indians and the small pox…and how Thanksgiving didn’t start until during the Civil War by Lincoln to boost morale.
Now you’ve got me wanting a digital spatula.
UPDATE: I see that such things actually exist. E.g. “Silicone/Nylon Chocolate Spatula with Digital Thermometer” at Amazon.
That guy who wanted to go to all-mart for 50 percent off digital spatulas has obviously never been to Spatula City.
