3. Commercial Airline Pilot (AA 777)
4. US President
5. Secretary of State US.
6. Professional Basketball Player NBA

8. International Journalist for a large News Corporation
9. Cruise Ship Captain
10. Supreme Court Justice.

So what would your top ten be?

A lot of federal jobs on there...I assume the benefits have something to do with your choices?

I don't really have a top ten myself. I usually just dream about having all of Bill Gates money and what I would do with it besides trying to spend a million dollars a day for the rest of my life.  Big grin

I'm actually rather happy with the job I have now. Would love a little bit more money (I think I'm worth it  Smile ) but I control my own schedule, I do something I enjoy, no two days are exactly the same and I get to travel fairly frequently -- but whithout the regularity of an airline pilot (which I think would kill me).

The power of a political position (Sen., President, etc) would be nice -- and it would be nice if some of the things that were wrong with this country finally got fixed -- but I don't like people or public attention enough.

I honestly can't think of 10 other things I'd rather be doing at the moment.

Maybe a slight exaggeration here, but any lawyer or law student who says they have not at some point dreamed of being on the Supreme Court is lying.

It is only because all the Concordes are grounded so there are no more Top 10 Concorde jobs available.

You will have more money than me.
Being a self made billionaire is enough in my case.

Here's an idea: Let's start a porn website specializing in aviation women. You recruit the girls, Superfly does the camera, and I do the girls. Questions?

Sounds like a good business idea to me! Only thing I'll add is, I get to do a "test drive" on the girls I recruit. Other than that I'm all for it.

1-10. Tiger Woods. I know it's not a job, but it should be. No-one else gets paid $110 million to putt a white ball full of dimples, and a swedish model to come home to. no-one.

No problem. It is your choice. There is nothing wrong about wanting to be Tiger Woods as a job.

I will add one to my previous list together with being a Self-made Billionaire:

1 - QE2 owner.

While I wouldn't mind making A-Rod type money, think more like the next Scott Fletcher (if anyone else remembers the Rangers from the late 1980s)  Wink Seriously, that's what I wanted to do since I was about 5. Ok, so sometimes I wanted to play third like Steve Buechele and I may be better suited to play second like Jeff Kunkel, but still...
