Okay - other than being a photographer, what's your idea of the best job in the world?

Here's my vote:

These guys have the best job in the whole world. Go around, proving or disproving random stuff, blowing things up, building full-size remote control cars, etc., and the list goes on!

I would almost pay to do that job!

Beat that!

Since I retired and my wife is working I have taken over the kitchen and enjoy doing the cooking. I think being a chef would be cool. For a classy place not the local coffe shop or pancake house.

Writing.

Prior to my marriage, I would have said in a cabin with an uplink on a mountaintop. Now I would say a medium sized RV (with an uplink) so I can take her from one photo-birding site to another.

That was going to be my choice for my career when I got out of school. I was all registered for college and ready to go. A family friend got me a job in the kitchen of the Chateau Lake Louise (external link). I realized that I didn't like making 20 gallons of coleslaw or making 400 of the same desert. Sometimes I regret not going forward with this but I changed my mind and ended up working for an airline for 30 odd years. I enjoyed that alot.

If I had a chance to do it all over again and pick anything I wanted I am not sure I would do it any differently other than go to college/university first. The airline industry is a pretty cool place to work.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

I am doing what I one thought would be the best job in the world. Genetics/biochemistry. Not so much the best job anymore.

I am, however, looking forward to my new job in September; father.

Given the chance to go back and start again, something in the sciences. Probably marine biology or meteorology.

I have to agree with this one too though. Who could resist building a Space Shuttle from a Reliant Robin? (external link)

The sooner that people realize that Jamie is really a robot, the non-violent prototype for the Terminator, the closer you would be to getting his job. Look at the evidence, Adam is ROFL like a normal human being and Jamie just stands there, he might deadpan a "good one " or something after a crazy cool explosion. He has to be a robot.

I think Jamie has the sweetest TV mustache, ever.
