What you really meant.
Every. Damn. Day. that I worked in a plant like that. Every damn day, almost an irresistible urge. Almost, because doing so would have cause me 4-6 hours of hard work. Consequences.

Mmmm. Steam turbines. In the ammonia fertilizer plant we had lots of them, running gas compressors instead of generators. One of them was a two-stage turbine, it had 1500 psig steam on the first stage, 600 psig on the second. Fun stuff.
