Forget about skill for a momnet, lets say you could have any job in the world and you will be good at it what job would you want?

I would have to pick from two because i would love to do them both. One would be a computer game developer, i would work in a company such as Blizzard (or Blizzard) and would lead develope one of there games. Two would be a to head up a charity, i would run adds to collect money and give it to the poor. I have how i hear about charitys taking most of the money and i would like to help in that area.

How about you?

The narrator's job in Fight Club - drawing a good annual salary for the job of not telling the press what I know about the company.

That, or Ski Patrol.

Helicopter pilot. Far freer and more interesting than a fixed wing pilot IMHO. One long sighted eye and one short sighted have put paid to that though :eek:

Graphic designer. :)

Edit: I had a think about this before I posted, that there might be anything else, but no. Pretty much not. I kind of always wanted to be the person who designed Kinder Egg toys, you know, the non-disappointing ones that you have to make, but I think that would probably get boring fast. ;)

What I am doing now, except I would have enough income to tell the asshat clients to go fly a kite instead of kiss their hindquarters.

Programming chief at a network to decide what gets a shot at being developed. Alternatively, I would not complain too loudly if I were assistant to Hugh Hefner. And what exactly would I do for the top Bunnymaster ... does it make a difference? :)

Reminds me of Bill Bailey - I am English, and this why I like Kinder Suprise. Crappy-tasting chocolate. Sh*tty little toy. A double whammy of dissapointment!

Hehe, if you're gonna be a slut, why not be a slut on TV! :p

Game dev - specifically Free Radical (very possible, as I know one of their artists) or Bungie (not so possible, but we can all dream :D)

Yeah, and getting licensed in the UK is a nightmare.

Get LASIK and come here. :D

About the Helicopter, well I know a few people in the buisness and they fly the same destination every single day, nothing new. :eek:

Ooh! Nobody I run into here knows what I mean when I try to describe the Kinder Surprise eggs! :eek:

I was going to say an heiress to an incredible fortune.

If not that. Then maybe a racehorse jockey. Dunno if I could actually handle the mental/physical stress of it, though.

Ooooooh! A personal shopper/make up artist for incredibly well-paying celebrities. :D Being paid massive amounts of money to spend even larger sums of money all day long.

Yup. Poet. But the pays not so good (maxing out around five cents a line, you know).

And people wonder why I don't believe in intellectual property ... mine's not worth anything! ;)
