    The Best and Worst sound like nothing I'd enjoy doing. The most stressful have a couple things I'd enjoy.

    Really? I guess it depends on what you're working on, and on which end of the software engineering process you're at, but as far as your average software engineering job, calling that "the best job" is just silly. It's not. It's demanding and unsatisfying.

    Human resource manager? The most stressful career one interests me simply because of the appearance of Event Coordinator. I mean I'm sure it's a stressful job because you're dealing with cunts, but ... eh.

    I am surprised that dairy farmer is on the list of worst jobs, because in that position you can get all the sex you want.

    I grew up on a dairy farm, and even when you lock the cows in a stall, they still kick like a son of a bitch. My friends in the sheep industry have much better love lives.

    So for the most part it looks like if you produce something or provide a good or a service then you have one of the worst jobs.

    Conversely, the less you and more theoretical your job is, the better it is.

    I think that pretty much sums up America at this point.

    Building and making things suck, staring at computer screen or providing pictures of things made in other countries: great.

    I love the irony of claiming IT professionals don't provide a service from a computer, over the Internet and on a website.

    You know what's even more ironic? I manage an IT Service Desk.
