Jobs you'd have loved if you were smart enough

Recommended Posts

Would have loved to get into astrophysics but I'm shit at maths. It'd be amazing though, just another plane of consciousness when you see the shit those types talk about.

 

Working at Nasa or something would have been amazing, those fellas who sit at the mission control panels and when the mission goes wrong they have to figure shit out.

 

"Ted went for a shit and the methane has breached the heisenberg compensator, how we gonna bring them home?"

 

And you fuck around with a protractor, do some sums on the back of a Hersheys bar and figure out how they can slingshot around the sun and be home in time for Monday night football.

Marine Biologist. One of them bastards who flies round the world studying tropical sea-life. You see them smug as fuck on nature programmes. Always with a nice tan. I love the sea, if only I'd applied myself more.

Mate of mine does that.  He used to go to all these exotic places but now just island hops around the Hebrides drinking single malt whiskey and nailing attractive farmer daughters.  Jammy bastard.

Great shout. One of these ice cutter boats looking for Orcas or something, boss.

Read 'Last Man Off' it's not as glamorous as it sounds.

Yeah although I'd kick the fuck out of any Orcas I met. I can't stand the bastards. Genuinely fucking hate them almost as much as I hate that fucking Kirsty Allsopp. Bitch

I'm a man who used to live and work on a ship mate, Whose arm hath bound the restless wave, Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep Its own appointed limits keep, I know what perils lie out on the ocean.

Good for any marine biologists out there working at the exotic end of it, but my impression from brief experience was that it involved an inordinate amount of digging worms out of intertidal mud.

 

Come to think of it, my dissertation was on earthworms. Spotting a pattern here.

First part was the apprenticeship. He is now doing my dream job although restricting it to farmers daughters seems to lack ambition.

Yeah archaeology is the same, I quite a degree in it after three months after the bloke said it was "nothing like indiama Jones", basically months on end sat in a wet ditch in Wessex.

Wanted to be a diplomat, took some bad, and incorrect, advice from one of my lecturers and fucked it up.

My Dad was a Doctor. Never wanted to follow in his footsteps until it was too late. Not sure I ever had what it takes, brains or otherwise, but I think now I’d like to have tried.

Lad I worked with was on the training program, they found out he was gay and booted him off. Was in the early 90’s like, but he’d have been brilliant. Really smart guy.   It is amazing they took so long to realise though as he makes Kenneth Williams look butch.

Definitely too much like hard work. My granddad was a doctor and my dad is a pharmacist. My dad is 70 next month and he still has to take exams, continuous personal development or some bollocks like that. My idea of hell. I haven't sat an exam since I was 20.

Always fancied being a barrister ever since watching Crown Court as a kid. However it’s not brilliantly paid and you have to fund yourself through training so it was never an option for me.

    • Because everybody is absolutely terrified of racism, the committee all but apologised that they were unable to charge Firmino, didn’t doubt Holgates account at all and said it was made in “good faith” despite there being absolutely zero evidence whatsoever..Not a word for Firmino who was left hanging for weeks. Staggering stuff 
    • Alisson T.A.A Phillips Kabak Robbo   Fabinho Thiago Ox   Salah Jota Shaq.   Could also replace Thiago for Milner. Mane and Bobby on the bench let's try to shake it up a bit up top.
    • This was the cunts reply. Andrew then eh? Getting closer.    I really don't know where to start with this heap of racist nonsense. It would be appreciated if you could actually answer the questions set out logically, rather than giving us the benefit of your prejudicial opinions- which with respect, nobody is really interested in. Racists opinions don't matter. Lets try and comb through the nonsense a bit though.

      On Kopites being racist. You are a good examplar. You have just stated you don't believe either black footballers when reporting racism. "You trust Evra" well given what we know about racism- that black people will not be lying when reporting it- and that a panel of white people from an organisation that rarely finds anyone racist agreed with him, it is overwhelming evidence that he is trustworthy. They have corroborated his account. Now tell me, what is it about Patrice Evra (the black man) that you find untrustworthy?

      Believing victims of racism, and viewing their accounts as trustworthy and credible is really a bit of an entry level of finding out if someone is racist. You may still be racist and do the above, but it's a good 1st hurdle most racists fall down upon. It's no surprise you, and most Kopites fall down on it as well.

      The fact the club, on finding out had an employee who racially abused someone championed him, stuck him on the players shirts, made him a hero because of it, put their manager out to lie on TV about him not shaking said racists hands and then refused to cut all ties with said manager shows a very clear pathway of a toxic, racist organisation. Indeed I believe that the said manager who wore one of those T Shirts is still allowed to attend matches, and has even had a stand named after him? I mean I could go on, but again, the case is overwhelming.

      I have no idea why you are interested in where I am from? Would me being from Liverpool mean that opposing racism is any more or less palatable? It has no relevence. I don't live in Liverpool, it's no secret. However your hypthesis about people from Liverpool is completely wrong. All of my family on both sides still live in the City. Both of my parents are proud scousers, and brought me up to be proud of the city I'm from but also recognise it's limitations, and the hangover of racism/ and the unethical relationshipthe city had with slavery. I was lucky to be brought up by two scousers, who found racism abhorrent, and loathed people who were racist, whether they were from Liverpool or anywhere else. I have enormous respect for the City, and consider it a spiritual home, but that doesn't extend to defending grubby little racists like you.

      As for the nicknake for Liverpool that was used in the 80's, I'd really ask why you are using language like that (over and above the fact you've outed yourself as a racist). Liverpool fans used to go to the match in the 80's where KKK outfits. John Barnes was given the nickname "digger" on account of it rhyming with a racist slur (not a very funny joke, but I'm sure you'll have a go at justifying it). Grobelaar went to christmas parties in a KKK outfit. A section of Everton fans would throw bananas at John Barnes and a small number would even take pride in Everton being White (which was of course untrue as we had black players up to the 60's, but you know racists are idiots so as we see with you it's hard to really reason with them). The key part of this is it's all abhorrent and wrong, and would want anyone associated with this to never watch Everton or Liverpool again.

      The difference is though, Everton players didn't wear on their warm up T Shirts a picture of someone convicted of racism. They didn't issue phrases like "do you trust Barnes" with the racist insinuation that black people aren't trustworthy. Aside from all of that, you've already stated that you feel it's out of order for people to hate those from Liverpool partaking in racist abuse, so in your bigoted little world we should not have a pop at them, as we don't want to criticise people from the city. I personally think racism should be stamped out wherever it's from, but I'm not a racist so I would say that.

      "America is not racist". I really don't even know where to start with that. If you have even the slightest understnding of America's past, or what America is suffering now with the swathes of Black Lives Matter protests and a police force murdering black people (60 years ago they would just lynch them) to putting the children of Mexican immigrants into camps away from their parents and then not allowing them to see them again etc you'd understand what an idiotic statement this is. But then, you're racist, you support Liverpool, so we have to give some credence to the idea that racism, slavery, segregation, camps will not be seen as wrong by you, but as normal, reasonable policies. Only a fairly hardened racist would view America as not racist.

      On Sheikh Mansour, he and Manchester City were cleared of wrongdoing. You have probably made your mind up on him as he's not white (in the same way you have with Patrice Evra, Mason Holgate, the victims of racism in America etc etc) so you're not going to be able to understand it, but he was cleared of wrongdoing in a European court.

      As for Mansour and "his ilk" (what do you mean by this, other Arabs) if so it's another racist comment. But yes, UAE is terribly exploitative. They learnt from the best (America and Britain) but yet you don't see either as racist, so I'm a bit sceptical that you are really bothered about the racism within those societies, or you are merely upset they are not white.

      As for other Evertonians thinking I'm like Goebells, I do find that very hard to believe. I find it hard to believe any Evertonian would give you the time of day, that you've got many mates (most racists tend to be sad, lonely, pathetic creatures, embittered at the world around them) and the comparison is completely absurd. Goebells was a proponent of the most brutal type of racism, and wanted to slaughter every Jewish person alive. I have have a long term partnership/relationship with a Jewish woman from a family of people who were nearly wiped out by Goebells policies and ideas. The two things are complete opposites, which anyone can see. I'm sure lots of Evertonians would dislike lots of things about me, but I doubt any would think the Goebells comparison would fit.

      Just going off the thousands of Evertonians on this site, none seem to like you and almost everyone who is commenting seems to agree with me. Which seems to be a better indicator than you and your imaginary friends.

      As a final aside, please don't keep sending me private messages. I really don't have anything to say to people like you. As a rule I believe in a no platform approach. People like you, with your cancerous ideas shouldn't be able to air them publicly without being in fear. It's a great shame we don't live in a society whereby people like you are not more scared to be able to spout their poison. I can assure you, I really don't have any interest in conversing with you.

      Hopefully this has cut through some of the insane, offensive nonsense you've put up. I would advise you take your hate and racism elsewhere, as it's not welcome here, and it's not welcome anywhere amongst civilised society.
