Oh ya that is the very idea of inventing. To make up and fabricate falsehoods, to produce or contrive, to create or devise, new ideas, machines, etc.
When in fact it should be called reconfiguring of old ideas. And yet they still did not invent room service. They labeled it. Like I said coined a
term. And contrary to what some books say about how some noble English man came up with the idea of sandwich on night because he was to busy to eat
proper meals...Well its been done before him, many times before, it just got labeled from there on...Actually not even from there on, hundreds of
years after I think when the commercial age and industrial age was coming on, but trust me he was not the first to have the idea of meat and bread go
good together for fast on the go food, # they did it in hunter gatherer times mostly by hunters on long treks, and so on. All your talking about is
commercializing it, and labeling it ie patenting it for profit purposes...So ie they coined a term..And even that # ain't new.
They got it all wrong and the whole dam thing is a jumble of mess...Inventing = In-venting...And worse they forgot to inform any of you all about the
outventing going on...Out-venting. Its product placement practically, kind of like how once its invented, well it needs to get to a customer.
Anyways return to your daily scheduled programing. I know what your going to say...More strawman bla bla bla, well buddy its all been done before, so
I know it, saying the same # in a different way does not make it new, it's just regurgitated material. Its in-vented, and if the slogan is catchy,
it will be out-vented. Maybe these astapors should of came up with a better slogan eh? Something along the lines of..."Everybody does room service,
but there is only one astapor room service...the original"
In any case I still like holidays in better "stay smart, stay Holiday inn" In
either case its all just targeting there customer base, which is a form of out-venting...Labeling...Coining a term...Its all the same dam thing
eventually....Now why should I care to take your point on it, and for what, you do realize that no one even knows who these astors are, or what the
you all talking about...Its just the label you chose to follow and predispose in your head, and that is all.
So why did you say they invented room service? Because they rearranged around a bunch of old things under a new label? If that is the case...Then
why even bother telling me that? And why are you acting like I should give #? After all there is nothing really new about it. Am I like supposed to
be impressed or care? Or are you like a spokesman for there company or the whole group of people who think as such? If that is the case your aiming
at the wrong target audience, I am sure there are plenty of people who would be like totally wow'd, by all that you said and your claims, and your
way at looking at things. To me its just pretty dam silly, but hey if you want I could argue this thing inside and out...Have you not heard,
everything and everybody in this universe is saying the same thing, only using different languages and ways, and very few of them however are aware
of that....Only advice I can give you is...Target Audience...Go find yourself some.
