    Not to be flippant, but some of the happiest people I've ever met have been in the plumbing and waste-disposal trades.

    Doc told me it's ok. Actually had a sleep study on it. I may only sleep 5 hours, but I sleep like the dead. I hit REM sleep very quickly.

    Cetainly, the staff at our recycling center are the happiest workers I know.

    They do get first pick (though I did manage to nab a BBC B from a skip when their backs were turned)

    I can see that about any job where you don't 'take your work home with you'... assuming your job pays well enough that you don't have money stress. Of course, his job is in management at a power station now, so i'm assuming that might be a little stressful.

    Well, now I feel like an underachiever and even with my significantly higher availability, I still feel like there isn't enough time for this Hobby.
