• Fido was contagious even in 1910 ;-)

    Hi, All!

    I read a humorous story book "A perfect lover's guide", by Stephen Leacok written in 1910, and in one of his novel he mentioned Fido, as a contagious bacillus. ;-) It is indeed, so contagious! ;)

    BTW, in his other story he wrote about Astronomy, but what on Earth he meant using the word "sticks"? Can you replace it with another word so that I will understand what are sticks and how they revolving? ;-)

    cf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orrery

    An orrery is a mechanical model of the solar system that illustrates or predicts the relative positions and motions of the planets and moons, usually according to the heliocentric model.

    Well, although it is unclear how it can cause tides. ;-)

    It IS supposed to be humourous, so I wouldn't look too deeply into the details!
