    I was thinking "astronaut", as one can be paid many years of salary for only a few days in space, but it may be "professional football player".

    Holy cow! Ben Roethlisberger made U$1.69 million / hour last year!

    Okay, not counting preseason, play-offs, practice, team publicity events, working out, rehab, etc.

    Google AdSense Whore. Once the web pages are up and running the income/time ratio is infinity. Then again, as this is true even for $1 a year I'll assume a top whore "on leave" does 1 hour mainenance a year. $1 000 000 per hour is then easily achievable.
