Most Vile Jobs

  1. Mar 28, 2005 #1
    What do you think are the worst jobs? Perhaps school consoler or rat exterminator are high up on your list of very sucky jobs? Or do you hate being the administrators of an online physics forum? What about stunt double? I would hate to be a babysitter, think of all the screaming kids. I Got the idea for this of and old Popular Science story, worst jobs in science.

    I'd hate to stand waist deep in pigeon droppings to cure leather from animals that just have been skinned.

    The link just gave me the lyrics, not the song, so I have to take your word that it's catchy. This sounds a lot more like a process worker (hence the title), than a chemical one. In my area, at least, a process plant is where they would for instance pulverize and arc-smelt magnacite ore to extract magnesium. There are quality control chemists on site, but it's strictly a down-and-dirty mill job. (You oughta see the scars one of my friends has from being splashed with liquid magnesium when an electrode failed.)
