SMT soldering Humor?

Do you turn the oven off and open the door as soon as 209 degrees is
reached, or sometime afterward.
Soldering SMT parts in a toaster oven....
I get the screaming heebe-jeebies with every installment of this thread.
I saw a technician that soldered with an electric charcoal grill starter.
He said they just plug it in until it glows cherry red, and wave it over
the board till everything looks soldered.
Component databooks frequently contain a page or two on soldering. The
Motorola data book have good information on temperature profiles and times.
The book contains a graph that looks something like:
preheat to 50 C
increase to 150 C in in first minute
increase to 160 C in the next minute
increase to 170 C in the next minute
increase to 205 C in the next minute
decrease to 50 C in the last minute
