    If your job sucks!

    And you had the option to choose exactly what you'd wanna do - what would it be? Pay - enough, but nothing remarkable.

    I am lucky - I still enjoy what I do re computer stuff but have to admit - if I was younger too, I'd like to do such things as .........


    Amusement park - new ride testing!
    Firearms development testing.
    Ammunition testing.
    Explosives testing.

    There are more - of course! Dang - I am giving away my lust for pyromania LOL.

    New firearms testing would top the list.

    A close second would be to have Jack Bauer's job.

    But seriously, anything living in the great outdoors would be high on the list.

    My Gramps had the best job - too old for front-line service, so the army sent him to Ft. Knox to test new armor and armor-defeating weapons.

    I hope that I am doing what I want to be doing. behavioral neurscience research. Woohoo!
    Hopefully when I finish school and find a real job I will still enjoy finding out how the brain does what it does to our behavior and vice vs.
    If I could do anything though and get paid good money...
    That is a rather hard question. I would love to say something to do with firearms...proshooter or tester. But, I feel my love of firearms would lose something if I were being paid for it and, more importantly, forced (in some sense) to work with guns. I also think I might get a bit bored.
    How about travel writer for national geographic. That might be pretty cool to do.

    I'd rather be a farmer. Firearms designer/tester would be pretty cool but I'd rather bust some sod the hard way than play with guns.
    My dad says he'd rather be a contractor.
    We're both engineers (I'm chemical and he's mechanical). Go figure.

    If I could do anything I would prefer to just farm, and gain any license I needed to make my own weaponry. I have some really neat ideas that I would like to try without the government knocking on my door.

    Once I had the manufacturing process down, I would be ready for the great zombie invasion of 2009
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.
