Tick Dragging for Fun & Profit

The Worst Jobs in Science Part II

Below is the latest crop of bad science jobs:

• Anal-Wart Researcher
• Worm Parasitologist
• Lab-Animal Veterinarian
• Tampon Squeezer
• Landfill Monitor
• K-25 Demolition Worker
• Ecologist at St. John’s Harbor
• Iraqi Archaeologist
• Tick Dragger
• Nurse
• Computer Help-Desk Tech (Did polarbee nominate her job?)
• Congressional Science Fellow
• Public-School Science Teacher
• Nosologist
• Root Sorter
• Crank
• Television Meteorologist

I definitely feel for the anal-wart researchers, landfill monitors and lab-animal vets. But it's kind of hard to feel sorry for television meteorologists.

This list definitely makes me appreciate my job!

I like meteorologists (watch way too much Weather Channel to not like them) but I don't feel sorry for them. I think they have cool jobs. Much better than a worm parasitologist...

Well, I was being a bit harsh, I'm sure. I apologize for that. But I have to put up constantly with people berating mets becuase they think all we do is sit on our hands and then cobble together a half-assed forecast. It's a terrible misconception, and one that is wholly undeserved. It just gets under my skin, you know.
