If a job needs doing, make sure its done in the most ridiculous style possible
The Nazis used carbon-monoxide (CO) to kill up to 2,000,000 Jews in the Reinhart death camps, Belzec, Sobibor & Treblinka. But they chose the most ridiculous way imaginable to do it.
The Germans, a nation of people renown for their efficiency. Not only
10 Nobel Prize Winners for chemistry 1918-1939, were Germans.
During WW2 there were over 500,000 wood-gas vehicles in Europe.
Wood-gas engines produces 20% carbon-monoxide emissions
Diesel engines produce around 0.2% carbon-monoxide emissions
ignored the hundreds of thousands of highly efficient carbon-monoxide
producing wood-gas vehicle at their disposal. Nor did they just use their
own inefficient carbon-monoxide producing diesel engined vehicles. They decided to use a diesel engine from a captured Soviet submarine
and another from a captured Soviet tank.
