If you could have your pick of any career, what would you choose to be?
Here are just a few choices, and you may have others. 1. Pope 2. Chief of State (pick your country) 3. Chief of Staff of your preferred military service (CNO for the Navy types, Commandant for Marines.) 4. Famous Author 5. Movie Star 6. Rock Star 7. Network Television Anchor 8. Master Chef 9. Talk Radio Host 10. Railroad engineer 11. Airline pilot 12. Captain of a Cruise Ship 13. Medical Doctor 14. University Professor 15. Attorney 16. Anthropologist 17. Astronaut 18. Soldier (any rank) 19. Sailor (any rank) 20. Marine (any rank) 21. Airman (any rank) 22. Other Military (any rank) 23. Foreign Service 24. Social Worker 25. Construction Worker 26. Forest or Park Ranger 27. Policeman 28. Fireman 29. Newspaper editor, reporter or columnist (specify) 30. Lifetime Student Note that I have not listed any illegal occupations or careers. If you don't want to be the Pope but would like to be a clergy person that choice is open. So is just about every other. I have also not revealed MY choice. I'll save that for when I close this question. (It is on the list.) I really like Renaissance Man's answer. There are many others I like as well. To early to choose the best, but will try to do that tomorrow. Bijou, I admire your idealism. If I could grant your wish I would. I see some really cool ideas here and I like every answer so far.
