Dream job would probably be security for a black base. Or a test pilot for black aircraft.

Why does it always have to be about color? Why not a white base?

President of the United States of America. I bet I could do a lot better than bush. Oh and, with nerdling as vice prez, and former member Colonal as sec. of state. Now THAT would be a good administration.

What is the difference between Fanstasy Job, Dream Job and Goal?

Here is a Dream job for some on ATS/BTS..
a PAID Paranormal Investigator... There are maybe less than 10 true paranormal investigators in the United States that make a living at it. The rest have to maintain their day job. Even TAPS has to keep their day jobs.
The gainfully employment investigators make their money from books, DVDs/Videos, and public speaking appearances. Some have even started Paranormal training courses. www.flamelcollege.org...
(No, it's not an accreditted College)

I actually DID take the Ghost Investigator's Course, I completed, but never sent it in, I didn't like the "Fake" ghost photos I made for the course. That is when Troy Taylor was overseeing the course.

whaaa,

Your truly living the life of a free man! - never take it for granted.

Now that I'm awake I hope to join you in a few years - gotta get rid of a few outstanding debts first.

I stand in totally envy!

Enjoy betraying Humanity!


Actually, at any government or private facility that contains dangerous biological or chemical agents, it is required that you be tested at a minimum of every 6 months for what you could be exposed to.

My cousin worked at the Dugway Proving Grounds for a couple of years, and he was CONTINUALLY checked for VX every few months, even though he wasn't working with it.

The job I would be doing would be ways to DETECT the nasty stuff so we could get rid of it if it were exposed to Americans. I don't wannt be one of the nutcases who designs the crap. I made up my mind to use my education for good, not evil.

So, as far as betraying humanity, well, shove it - that's not my bag. If you wanna say that every government position, or even just the scientists, are evil, well, you're nuts. Living in Conspiracy-World can be fun for a vacation, but don't plan on making it your place of residence. I will admit that there are some real bad people in the govt, but not all of them.

As far as the life-expectancy of a chemist... well, if you're a good chemist, then you won't live much past 60. Live fast die young! Go Chemistry! Leave a big rotted corpse! Praise the Curies!

Mine would have to be either:

-A master builder for Fender Guitars

or

-A master builder for my own line of guitars (sigh, thats the dream)

I would take any job that pays well over my current job though.

Meef.

Hey trinitrotoluene,

I know yer banned now for some reason, but I wanted to apologize.

You are right we need all the good people and scientists we can get working for the govt. - I just get frustrated how many of our top minds get used for destroying instead of helping people - I know that you would not allow yourself to be used in this way.

I hope you do get your dream position one day - we would all benefit from your expertise and contcientious work.

Good Luck!!

My dream would be in the Air NAtional Guard flying F-16's. Flying twice a month and being paid 100,000 a year for it. Never would that happen but it would be sweet.

If given the choice, I would be a librarian or a teacher.

Unfortunately, a little thing called 'paying the bills' leaves me very little choice at all

Head of N.S.A..

I'd like to be privy to certain information.

I'd get paid for going to classes, hanging out with friends, and enjoying my life here at uni. Instead of paying for it.

Alternately, I'd like to get paid for being a vampire. Because vampires are cool. Or being a moderator here. Because moderators are almost as cool as vampires.

OR, I'd like to have a job as a rich man. That could be cool.

I would like to have my very own urinal cake business. Man that would be swell. Hell, who doesn't like a nice fresh urinal cake?

I gotta tell you, if I can't make people happy with my freshly made urinal cakes, I don't know if I could live another day.

Well, I could settle for being a MOD lacky, thats always pretty fun. Maybe I will start following around one of the newer naive' MODS, like Enron or parrhesia!!

Other than that I have no other ambitions in life...

You mean those little scented "toilet puck" thingies????

(I'm still trying to articulate my dream occupation.)

You might think "porn star" sounds kind of dramatic. But I saw a documentary once on the lives those people lead. They do a lot of drugs, but not to party. They do drugs to stay awake. Standing around for 10 hours in the nude, waiting for the sound-check guys to finish arguing with the lighting people about whose equipment is causing power outtages. And your the only one naked. Most of the guys can't stay "focused," and they have to keep doing drugs to stay aroused.

Hmm. One of my triumphs on BTS has been my long-running 'evil genius' thread, where we talked about being world emperors. Other than Genghis Khan and the Original Ottoman, most emperors did NOT die of old age. Poisoned, or throat slit in their sleep. That takes a lot of the fun out of oppressing. And unless you have the luck of Castro, there will probably be an unpleasant coup before you can retire to Switzerland.

Howabout being a "captain of industry," running a company that is so big it's practically trans-planetary. You still get all the jets and massages and junkets in the Carribean. And the Corporation is SO big, no one can really be sure whether or not your really screwing it up. Guys like Lee Iacoca and Roger whatzisname at GM. Both of those guys were on the fronts of magazines back in the 80's. Only decades later did we find out they were flushing money down the toilet for their shareholders the whole time. And now, Iacocca's even back at the helm of Daimler-Chrysler, after he drove the US part into bankruptcy. Same as Trump. Not many people have been bankrupt THREE times in one life! And he still gets treated like he's an authority on firing people!

Of course if this is really a "dream job" that should include starship pilot, as someone pointed out. That sounds pretty cool, until I think about the liability issues. I bet your insurance would cost more than your life earnings, to offset the chance of you driving a billion-credit ship into the ground at mach-25.

In my days of youthful oblivion, I might have suggested "marijuana conisseur and critic;" but I'm actually trying to accomplish something with my life besides watching Twilight Zone re-runs and wondering if the cops are right outside the door . . .

Someone mentioned "archaeologist." As many of you know, I already HAD that career. And yes, it was a dream job. The only problem was that the pachecks turned out to be largely a mirage as well.

You know who I think has a great job? Samantha Brown, that perky little blonde chick who goes around and rates luxury hotels on the travel network. Frau Dr. used to leave that show on the TV in the background, until I mentioned that I thought Samantha was kind of cute. So now we're back to CSPAN as our base channel.

I might choose wizard. But then, I'd probably end up as a sideshow carnie. There's just never a free lunch, ya know.

Maybe I could be some kind of revered cultural icon. Like Warhol or T.S. Hunter or Abbie hoffman or something. They got to hang out at the coolest parties for like a decade and a half each. Of course, they all died miserably. Oh well, sometimes ya eat the bear, and sometimes the bear eats you.

Let's talk about pirate. Not the software kind. The grog-drinking, buckle-swashing, rape the bank and loot the villagers kind. Even though that's another life that is nasty, cruel, brutish and short, it still rocks.

Y'all would think I was nuts if I said Pope. So I won't even go there.

Sorry for the rambling. Frau Dr. is out of town till tomorrow night. That's why I'm hanging around ATS, waiting for the kids to fall asleep in the TV room.

I think I would just like to be Bushes helicopter pilot. Or be such an incredible musician that rich folk called on you to be a music tutor for their kids, and you'd like have to fly all over the world to meet your students. Teaching in a college would never pay the kind of money that I would like to make.
