A: They use too much SPICE.

Not true. I am an electronics engineer and I am good at cooking too. Please don't give up trying. All the best.

I think he was making a joke. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SPICE

I dunno man, I can burn water in the same way I can fry a transistor.

I hope no one's joking in this thread, because ..

I'd never, ever make a joke about such a serious subject, I'm very disappointed.

I'm actually extremely wonderful at cooking. I can cook up a wide range of dishes, arguably, much better than most professional chefs. They make interesting smells as well.

To give you some examples, I've cooked things like, resistors, capacitors, transistors, integrated circuits (some say, "I make the nicest chips"), and especially voltage regulators. True, they weren't suppose to be over-heated like that, but that can happen during circuit development/test/research.

Well, decided to do a little minced bird for breakfast. Big chicken, really big chicken, actually the biggest dinosaur living today, at least in Africa. Tasted great. Fried in a pan with a little butter, and then added an egg to make scrambled egg.

I once got some eval boards with backwards tantalums. That one was totally not my fault. Entertaining though.
The power resistor was my fault. Just because it's operating below the rated power, doesn't mean it won't burn a hole in your bench.
