LOL - I took a little poetic license with that post -

WHY YOU SHOULD LEAVE COOKING TO THE PROFESSIONALS

Cooking is a crucial skill in life, and a quick Internet search for those who want to learn the skill makes it seem deceptively simple. Learning new skills is a wonderful thing, especially if it relates to your interests or hobbies. However, sometimes things like cooking are best left to professionals.

Food ingredients can be sensitive, delicate, and expensive—and best left in professional hands if you’re inexperienced.

Getting set up to cook is easy. There are so many tutorials and websites out there to walk you through the process, and it’s quite inexpensive to buy all the necessary supplies. It’s obvious why lots of people learn to cook at home! If you have a meal that needs cooking, you’re a complete newbie to the process, or if you’re just not confident enough in your cooking abilities, here are a few reasons why you should just relax and call a professional cook.

RISK OF BURNS

First and foremost, cooking stoves get hot. And we mean HOT. 600 degree Fahrenheit hot. That kind of temperature will severely burn skin, drip hot melted food on limbs or personal items if the user is careless, and can start fires. Hot water may splatter, so eye protection is also needed.

RISK OF FUMES

Food comes in both raw and pre-cooked varieties. Despite the levels of toxicity, many still prefer raw food due to its strength and workability. Pre-cooked food is a less-toxic alternative (and the only option in regions where raw food is banned), but both foods still produce harmful fumes that may irritate the eyes or cause health problems if inhaled. Ideal cooking set-ups include proper ventilation, which may not be viable for some. There should be between seven to twelve inches of space between your face and your work at all times.

INEXPERT TECHNIQUE

It can take a lot of practice and frustration to get the “feel” for cooking. Too much food? A food bridge can form and unintentionally connect two adjacent plates. Too little food? You might end up with a weak immune system.

LACK OF COMPONENT KNOWLEDGE

If you’re not well-versed in cooking and are unfamiliar with stove components, you may accidentally damage something while cooking. The temperatures needed to cook food can and will weaken the vitamins within the vegetables, making them prone to lifting and separating in unsteady hands. The heat can also damage other, more sensitive, foods on the stove.

Learning a new skill can be overwhelming, especially in a party capacity where you’re trying to entertain people of value to you. If cooking is too much of challenge for you, that’s just fine!

Um... Can I get a private soldering lesson from this chick?  Beanie guy isn't invited.



"Soldering"
You're gonna end up using a different kind of soldering iron, of you know what I mean.

I have seen "professionally soldered" boards that looked worse than these.

I'm not a professional plumber but my copper pipe joints and ABS welds often come out better than professional jobs simply because I do not mind spending a few extra minutes to do a neat-looking job instead of rushing things to cover more jobs per day.

User banned but i just have to leave this up for comic value, yea right try telling a bunch of ardent hobbyists and professional engineers that they don't know what they are doing, that is a sure way to sell your services...... :popcorn:

any kid old enough to take a general science class can be taught not to do that nor to pick it up by the hot end!

Been soldering for years, but just the other week I decided I couldn't look away to grab my iron from it's stand because I was holding something critically aligned, and of course Murphy dictated I was to overshoot and grasp the hot end  :palm:
