Do you have someone you can call

In a home cooking crisis??

I ask because I had an issue making pea soup this week and had a number of people I could (and did) call. In the mean time as I was getting started someone else posted a similar inquiry here so I learned a few things. The key was none of it was "crisis" so no time sensitivity.

It got me thinking how the web has really become a "life line" for the "OMG- my xyz is still frozen, undercooked, looks weird, will I kill someone with this" situations when you need help ASAP.

So what's your knee jerk reaction in those moments? Do you immediately pick up the phone or do you go right to your computer?? Why?

ETA- one benefit I see of the computer is the opportunity to gets LOTS of responses in a short time period, the con is you also risk getting lots of conflicting responses.
