Interesting thought.

I received a BS and MS in mechanical engineering.  Worked 14 years as an equipment and structural consultant in engineering analysis, then 4 years for a power company in modification engineering design and regulatory projects, then 4+ years for a small startup specializing in high-tech filtration doing some design but mostly writing proposal/grant requests, and now the last 3-1/2 years with an engineering application software company doing Tech Support and Training.  Unlike Trug, this is the best and most fun (and hardest) job I've ever had, and I still learn new stuff every day.

And . . . I've been listening to a lot of King Crimson-related stuff lately.

  Hi Workers,

  All these Astrophysicist mails got me to thinking about the different jobs
  we are holding down and also the jobs we aspire to . . . .

  I am currently working for a large faceless investment bank (and not
  enjoying it very much) meddling with computers.  Its quite a big change from
  the plumbing I was doing for 12 years.

  If I could have any job in the world I would be a race car driver, not for
  the glamour or the girls but because it is such fun mixing it up at high
  speed on the track and I would love to give high speed rides to disabled /
  less fortunate children, it would be such a buzz to see their infectious
  grins afterwards (hopefully they wouldn't be traumatised by it!).

  I have also filleted fish for a living, worked in restaurant kitchens, been
  a service manager, cleaned up rubbish on building sites, made tubular steel
  furniture, done a couple of stints in retail and am currently investigating
  working for a company that make some very opulent and fast speedboats.

  Any one else feel like 'fessing up?
