Wow, I just got the BEST SPAM EVER:

Want to be a father of the whole kindergarten? Try Spermamax.

This portends a very good weekend, I think.

  1. What job do you have, and why do you like/hate it?
    I am a nuclear medicine technologist. I work in a cardiology office full time and also pull call at a local hospital on some weekends. I like it because it's pretty easy, while still having to use some higher brain function; I like working with patients because it's rewarding to take care of people; And the money's not too bad. I don't like it because it's monotonous and simply because it is work, period.


  2. As a kid, what did you want to be when you "grew up?"
    I wanted to be a rocket scientist. Well, some kind of scientist. A high energy particle physicist or something like that. I always wanted to work at CERN and Fermilab and places like that, or for NASA.


  3. Is the job you have now anything like what you imagined as a kid?
    Hardly. There were lots of radiation physics in school, and I still do some things like decay calculations, dosimetry and a few other things, but the actual applied physics part of my job is pretty lacking and it's more of patient care with some button pushing.


  4. Do you have a five-year career plan?
    lol. People who talk about five year plans are usually complete dipshits and couldn't tell their ass from a hole in the ground.


  5. In order to get the job of your dreams, is there anything you wouldn't do? Why?
    I don't think there is a "job of my dreams" any more. Besides my mortal enemy KYLE, my life is really good. I didn't stop striving to achieve but I'm no longer looking for that $500k job and all that bullshit. I just want to do my job, get paid and go home at the end of the day and enjoy my life, take lots of vacation, etc. In that sense I feel like I've kind of "arrived". I'm not searching for anything anymore, I'm just living and TRYING to enjoy it (KYLE)! ::stab::

Okay, where's the damn link?

To father an entire kindergarten class, wouldn't you have had to have used the product about six years ago?

I really liked your answer for #5, because it described the way I feel perfectly. While I was never ambitious enough to ever dream of a $500k job, I do feel that, especially in the past few years, felt more comfortable in my own skin than I ever have. While I still have that wanderlust, I have an outlet for it. I don't feel any need to be SOMETHING IMPORTANT, or to DO SOMETHING WITH MY LIFE. I'm content being happy with the life I've made for myself and enjoying the company of my family and friends.

Exactly. I think we're both the product and the lack of our forefathers. They wanted to make "a better life" for us, and encouraged us to go on to be doctors, lawyers, etc but what they didn't know was that just working a good job, being proud of what we did and enjoying life was all that really mattered. And a lot of people, like me, got the idea we had to do better or do something fantastic with our lives. Well that's bullshit. I want to do good in my life too but what I really want to do is enjoy my life and that's what I'm doing. I do my job, I take pride in it and then I go home and enjoy the rest of my life.
