    The archival tape is amazing. If you have the time, give it a listen. In that SuperStress thread the OP was stressed out for not being employed, and here are working people telling a Radio Host exactly how much their employment bothers them.

    Thanks.
    2. I clicked the highlighted title in your above re response. It took me to Amazon.com. There I got to read testimonials of those who read the book by the author below. Majority of the working population, one can safely conclude that they are not happy with what they do in their present job.

    Floods reporting
    America vs. UK​
    I noticed while watching the UK floods situation, the contrast between how loud we (Americans) are in both experiencing/suffering the calamity, as well as reporting it for the media. The foreigners are much much quieter.

    Here's something for you to practice letting go on:

    @Amica Thanks for the story of the GeorgiaTech Wok-toss. The concluding paragraph (copied below) was so pretty close to home: While listening to the AirFryer droning on, I had wished that the darn thing had some mechanism to turn over the things in the basket, instead of us having to pull the basket, and shake things (that had stuck to the bottom) loose and turn them over. I've often wondered if a mechanism like a front-loading clothes washer can be adapted into a kitchen appliance for making sauteed vegetables. We already have the top loader (instant pot) except for a shaking-twisting inside-vessel.

    "There have also been attempts to automate stir-frying fried rice in large batches, with limited success. Prior robotic designs have included a rotating drum to mix ingredients, and a see-sawing wok to flip ingredients, augmented with an automated spatula. These could mix ingredients via rotation or shaking but could not toss the rice and, thus, could not produce the ideal carbonated grains. "If there was an automated way of doing this, it could be very useful [for chefs]," said Hu."​

    Rihana is in front; she has been telling others not to cut into the queue.
