Einstein's pipe dream
Charming of them! I'm tickled!
Best thing I’ve read today. Thanks.
My own experience in a casual conversation with a plumber was about forty years ago. He had been dispatched to my modest home to unclog a pipe.
I mused how nasty some of these clogs were. I had asked him what was the worst he’d ever seen? I was expecting something on the lines of grease buildup, tree roots or something worse.
His answer? An aborted baby.
Never saw that coming...
What a great story!
I would rather choose to be a plumber" reflects a preference for a practical and down-to-earth profession over potentially more glamorous or conventional options. This phrase emphasizes the value of practical skills and hard work, suggesting a desire for a tangible impact on people's lives. It embodies the idea that pursuing a profession like plumbing, while often overlooked, holds its own significance in contributing to society's functioning. This statement encourages a reevaluation of societal perceptions about careers, highlighting that job satisfaction and the ability to make a difference can be found in unexpected places
He is still correct.
I've personally encountered a related issue, where the ongoing vertical integration and consolidation within American health systems, along with a multitude of other reasons, has led to a diminishing sense of independence and autonomy among physicians. This is leading many incredible individuals to leave the field prematurely. Funny enough, both of my brothers chose entirely different career paths as plumbers and chefs. There are days where I think they made the better choice!
A flush of plumbers - excellent!
