Flash_NYC: Also,is working 6 days a week, 14 hours a day with maybe one Saturday night off a month cool? Specially if you're working under one of those "celebrity" chefs as an unpaid intern(slave).?Then, if you're lucky, you can graduate to those same 6 days, 14 hour shifts for almost 30K per year.Cool, man. Cool
RoxtarRyan: Why not Alton Brown? This is like picking McKayla Maroney over Kerri Strug for inspiration as an Olympic Athlete. At least Brown would inspire people not only to have fun in the kitchen, but get people interested in science as well, not just yelling at people because you have a small penis.
Vangor: Because for the populace which doesn't regard cooking as a life skill everyone should possess, someone yelling obscenities is a whole lot more entertaining than breaking down the process.
NeoCortex42: I took home etc in high school. As a guy, I like being able to cook food that I like eating. I also think sewing is a good skill to have. Why would I not want to be self-sufficient just because I'm a guy?
Smeggy Smurf: Knowing how to cook makes you a much more attractive swinging dick than merely having a lot of money. Money can go away, skills never leave you. Broads love guys with skills.
Jim_Callahan: Anyone who says "taking chances is rewarded" with respect to cooking is either stupid or has never cooked. It takes science-level repetition to slowly grind out a new recipe, it's one of the few things less amenable to real creativity than doing your taxes.You _cannot_ just randomly throw shiat together/modify recipes on a whim, unless you're only cooking for yourself and your roommate (who would otherwise not be eating at all).
gingerjet: Its useful to be able to bake a chicken while changing the oil in your car with tools you machined.
Omahawg: lemon and fish? sure. apples and pork? yup. Cayenne and brownies? not so much....
MediaAreAllHacks: The idea of taking risks paying off is incredibly important. I see the majority of students as so terrified to make a mistake they won't even try half the time. I'm not sure what we're doing to our kids as a society, but we need to change the fear of failure. I feel it may be the single most detrimental thing I see in the school system. And that is saying something.
Vangor: Omahawg: lemon and fish? sure. apples and pork? yup. Cayenne and brownies? not so much....Chocolate and peppers are great together, you fool.

I'm not sure what we're doing to our kids as a society, but we need to change the fear of failure. I feel it may be the single most detrimental thing I see in the school system. And that is saying something.Considering how expendable most employers consider their workers to be in the USA, fear of failure and mistakes is not only not surprising, but completely unavoidable. It doesn't take long for that kind of attitude to work its way down to the younger generation coming up. All they have to do is look at their parents stressing their way into an early grave to realize that at the first sign of weakness in the workforce, you're gonna get the shaft. Hard. So shut up, toe the line, keep on doing what's always done and hope that if there's a monumental fark up you can shift the blame someone else.
