If this profession is replaced by robots, then many people will not be able to find a job. But it brings us a lot of convenience!

What are you doing? Microwaving pasta? Too much chaos and complex physics and chemistry involved.

Thank god. This line of work is low paying, very stressful, lots of hours and not very appreciated, also somewhat dangerous.

It needs to fucking go, sorry to all the chefs who actually like their job somehow, but yea, screw this job.

Because people don't want perfect food. It would make it seem like we live in an artificial world. Imperfection is human.
