Or an instrumentation technician.
No one knows what we actually do, only that we have all the answers to questions that seem so incredibly specific to a certain situation that the fact that we answer so effortlessly boggles one's mind.
Hell, I don't even know what we do, and I've been doing it for 3 years.
i can, however, tell you that the ideal material for tube transporting mayonnaise is not what one would expect (surprised me too).

It's not that specific in your work environment, because you work a mayonnaise factory. You know what you do, you try to make processes in where ever you work run more smoothly and you do **** with tool and machinery.

Here's the kicker...
I don't work in a mayonnaise factory.

Trade secret, I'm afraid I cannot tell you.

Well then. Answer me this:
Why Coca Cola tastes better in a can?
User avatar #7 to #6 - duskmane ONLINE (03/17/2013) [-]
Mostly a matter or personal preference. Some people actually prefer it in bottles, and some prefer it from the fountain.
The fountain is a bit dodgey though because you have to have the proper ratio of co2 to syrup, and running low on the syrup is bad times (have tasted, do not want).
as for the difference between bottle and canned, the canned pop tends to take on a slightly metallic taste from it's container (coca cola does a pretty wicked job of eating away at **** ). It's possible that you like the canned variety either from being raised drinking it, or due to a nutritive deficiency in your body (we tend to crave things based on what our body is lacking, and a metallic taste would make me think iron).
Who knows, maybe you actually like bottled more, but desire the canned because you're low on iron. Try taking multivitamins and such for a few days and see if you still prefer canned.

Nice, you got a good logical thinking, haha. I don't really drink coke that much, but most people I know, including me, think that canned drinks taste better.
Your job reminds me of one of my friends, who knows a lot of random info, but mainly because he reads Random Facts comps, haha.

Looking at all the possibilities is a good talent, even outside of work Helps a lot when you have something broken around the house or even, as you saw there, a little bit of self diagnosis when you have a sudden change in eating habits.
I never really was a huge fan of coke. I do like rootbeer, but usually I drink coffee in the morning, energy drinks during the beginning of the day, gatorade or juice after noon till I get home, and then whatever for the rest of the night lol.
Thanks for your original question, by the way. I enjoyed having to put a bit of thought into a response for once ^_^

By the way, where do you work then? I don't see where something like that can be very helpfull, because there are usualy loads of profesionals with charts, studies, experience and proof for the specific problem with whom they work. Of course it can be helpfull in everyday life, but I can't imagine a job which requiers this.
Eyup, beer all the way. Same goes for me, altho I never drink energy drinks. If I feel the need for more energy I drink a coke if need be. Usualy just go with coffee in the morning and water/tea later.
No problem! :)

I work in the oilfield. Lots of decisions get made without having the time to ask for an engineer.

why does my strength coach hate people who take creatine supplements?
User avatar #13 to #12 - duskmane ONLINE (03/17/2013) [-]
I would say that it could have something to do with his own upbringing and values, or possibly his body type and personal experience with lifting. If he never needed the supplements, he might see them as a cop-out when it comes to people using them. If he had to work harder to put on mass (like myself, being an ectomorph), then he has likely put value in hard work and good diet.
Personally, I use protein supplements (mutant mass, generally), and a pre-workout drink, then lots of water throughout the day. That's just me though, and I don't do it for any other reason than to stay fit.

**nagafever rolled a random image posted in comment #52276 at Slice of Life thread 3 ** I would so do that - then give a completely wrong price. let's say "This thing here is worth atleast 200k" while it may be worth 5k at max - then those ******* ******* are probably still going to go like "best i can do is 30k" and i ****** those bitches the ***** ver.
