This month, Popular Science has written an article highlighting the top 10 worst jobs in science.

www.popsci.com...

Among the top 10:

Orangutan Pee Collector

and:


...gear-packing monitors who run toward (not away from) the gases and molten rock of erupting volcanoes (dozens have been killed or wounded); U.S. Geological Survey workers at two picturesque California lakes monitoring "extremophile" microbes that thrive in the most putrid environments (work that one says resembles being surrounded by 100 "extremely flatulent people"); and "human lab rats" such as students employed in an industry-funded University of California at San Diego study for $15 an hour to have pesticides sprayed into their eyes.


Poor kids!

I'm not sure why the ballerina has one of the worst jobs in science. According to the article, the ballerina was hired by the inventor of the robot's "skin" to test its sensitivity to movement, which doesn't seem like such a bad idea. That's probably the easiest money that ballerina has ever earned. The robot is kind of phallic looking, though.

Lol, that robot could have at least bought her flowers first or something...
