    Why is the TV smoking if it wasn’t turned on?

    It is a weak force. It takes the mass of the earth to cause you to impact that ground to break that arm. But if you use the strong force of just a few kilograms of uranium by splitting the atoms you have a nuclear bomb which and impart a much greater force on your body. When you think of it that way you are able to exert more force than all of the mass of the earth, by simply lifting your leg.

    IT work would have never been for me, it is like “retail”, I don’t like dealing with “customers”. Whenever you have that relationship there are always some that think that you/your job is not as important as them/their job. One thing I will say is that one thing that help for me is the fact that I didn’t stay in one position forever. About 6 years in any given jobs was about my limit.

    I have been pretty lucky with the bosses/co-workers where I have only had a few bad ones. But when I think of it a good portion of why they didn’t mess things up for me is because I’m a loner, and my jobs have reflected that. For instance, almost never have had a situation where my boss tells me what to do. I was the one seeing what needed to be done and did it. These days my wife works in retail and loves it. It is interesting to listen to her talk about the good and the bad. When she has had bad bosses and co-workers she would complain, but in fact get off on the “conflict”. And when she has a good boss and co-workers like she does now, she just loves to work with the. And the same basically goes for the customers. Now there is a people person! Me, I wouldn’t last a day in retail!

    One can’t take this literally. Yes, even with the best of jobs there will be bad days. But there is a far cry from that and hating to go to work each day, but having to do it because you need the money.

    I was lucky enough to have this be true for most of my career. In fact, though it wasn’t one job, electronic tech, test engineer, software engineering. But one has to understand one thing, you can’t necessarily take something you love and make it your job. That can take something you love and ruin it. It really has to be a job you love to do, and of course it has to be something people will pay you to do.

    I was reading that GenZ are having “technical knowledge gaps” at work. Part of it is because they are using phones/tablets not computers, and the other part is that they don’t use devices like printers, scanners, and copy machines. And once again, you have the proof that what people call “intuitive” is in fact, “what we have learned, and are used to”. For instance, they are having problems with “folders”, because they aren’t much seen on mobile devices.

    So, the Earth might be flat like a pancake, and China is on the other side. I think that would be really cool ride on an airplane as you go over the edge. :-)

    @Nubmaeme From what I remember over time the prices between the commissary and the groceries stores off base started to be a lot closer. They were still a bit better, but if you looked for items on sale at the groceries store you could match or beat the prices at the commissary.
