We thought it had something to do with birds.
According to a site called Careercast.com and the wallstreetjournal.com,being an actuary is about calculating statistics to determine probability and risk. YAWN! Oh sure, you make like 85K, which is what we sold our house in California for last year, but how exciting can that job be? Oh, and, according to the report, working on an oil rig as a roustabout is the worst, according to a study released on Tuesday. Yeah, all that physical exercise and sunshine can make life
We think these guys have it all wrong! So let's turn this thing upside
down, shall we?
The survey says! The worst jobs of 2010 are:
4. Dairy farmer
6. Garbage collector
7. Taxi driver
8. Construction worker/laborer
9. Meter reader
10. Mail carrier
14. Sheet metal worker
15. Emergency medical technician
17. Reporter (newspaper) ? that hurts!
Wow- we see some elitism here. Damn, what's wrong with dairy farmer? OK, we get Stevedore, who wants to be gored by a bull? (not a bullfighter? Who cares, it's funny!) But sailor? What type
of sailor? The kind that cruises to Tahiti and back? The kind that drinks mai tais and has a chick in every port? Yeah, that sounds terrible! Wow, if you could actually aquire one of these jobs we think you would be happier than a pig in shit. Just saying.
But, if you were hired for one of these gigs:
2. Software engineer
3. Computer systems analyst
7. Paralegal assistant
10. Dental hygienist
13. Technical writer
14. Bank officer
15. Web developer
16. Industrial engineer
17. Financial planner
18. Aerospace engineer

Whoa! Spasmatic! Lucky YOU!
