As someone that used to be an electrician if one of those nerds ever talked shjt we’d stuff him in his locker. But yes that is the ritual
@BigJohnson86, dear lord software can be a lot worse sometimes. A big part of my job is fixing shjtty code that student employees wrote years ago and lemme tell ya, trying to sift through 3k lines of unintelligible code and bad documentation that *somehow* works can be really draining
@BigJohnson86, This just gave me, the 6'4" 300lb chemical engineer, an image of my ~5' 6" 150lb electrician friend trying to force me into a locker.
@brenno263, at least what you're working on isn't invisible death
@JiggleMyPuffs, yeah I've done projects with 120v DC before and very little scares me more than electricity. so I guess my refined statement is "software has a greater potential for monotony"
@brenno263, And a greatly reduced potential for spontaneous human soup!
@brenno263, growing up my dad taught me a lot about fixing stuff around the house but his advice to me on any and all electrical issues was: don’t fvck with electricity. Just don’t.
So it's more like 2 hours for you?
This is also true for programmers
He discovered the secret.
As an electrician since '05 it's basically the amazement of people that get paid more than you & you have to fix it because they are a licensed journeyman & you don't have enough time in to be licensed. Or it's just a simple case of what the fvck?
We do this in medicine, too.
