I've been thinking about the things that suck about this hobby. The little annoyances and mistakes. I believe that celebrating failure leads to better outcomes in the long term.

I'll share some of mine and hope some of you will join.

- The hours of bitter afterstate when you touch your mouth after working with denatured alcohol.

- When standing up from the chair after pouring a whole sleeve of Petri dishes bumping the table too hard and ruining the whole run.

- Waiting for 2 hours for the agar to cool down and solidify, then noticing the carefully measured 15 grams of agar powder still sitting on the counter.

- When the forgotten jar at the bottom of the closet does better than your 25 step spswning, casing and fruiting tek.

I knocked over my alcohol burner and almost burnt down my lab at work while inoculating. Good times. Ruined 3 freshly made spore syringes in the process. Good times.

I can't count how many times I've wiped my hands with alcohol and immediately have lit a lighter to flame a needle. I just refuse to learn darn-it!

So in a way we have a problematic relationship with alcohol?

How about filling up myco bags with grain and sub, sealing them up to PC to realize I forgot to add water?

Even more difficult I would think. I would be "WTF where is the steam?" before I put the rocker on. All the same though, I have loaded the PC without water and caught myself before turning it on.

Trying my best to keep everything clean while knocking up some jars, then seeing a drop of blood splat on my white counter. Seen the tear through my gloves and cut on my thumb. Still have no idea how I managed that.
