I think Robert Rodriquez said it best: "Not knowing how to cook is like not knowing how to f***." Crude? Yes. But the man has a point. You have to eat every day, so why not figure out how to do it as well as you can. Unfortunately, more of my time is spent earning money so I can buy cookbooks. For that I do things like writing software. Well, to be entirely accurate I mostly just copy code from Stack Overflow. Thank you, Jeff Atwood!
