Top Ten Worst Science Jobs

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you think your job is tough, try being an elephant vasectomist instead.

Popular Science magazine has just come out with its list of the “Top 10 Worst Jobs In Science” and being a Hazmat Driver stinks up the number one spot on the list because diving deep in nuclear waste from nine to five can’t be too pleasant.

Other dirty, rotten jobs that made the list include...

  • Elephant Vasectomists, who have to deal with footlong testicles by cutting through two inches of skin, four inches of fat, and 10 inches of muscle.

  • Whale-Feces Researchers, who cruise around looking for dung and then dig through it to learn more about the creatures.

  • Garbologists, who have the luxury of going through landfills studying modern consumption facts and learning how hot dogs can last 24 years before decomposing.

  • Finally, if you’re really lazy, you could become a Gravity Research Subject and lie with your head tilted down, doing nothing for three weeks to simulate the effects of zero gravity.
