All of this stuff works great for Chinese takeout or microwave box meals.........
Same here. I love this TV show where they place random people of all ages in a kitchen and ask them to cook (very, very) basic meals. The outcome is almost always somewhere between disgusting and biohazard

I'm 47 now, and mostly because of the potential of saving lots of money, I developed some decent cooking skills. The better nutritional value compared to fastfood was a side effect in the beginning.
Nowadays noone seems to have any clue how to do better than boiling an egg.
