The Deadliest Jobs
The Deadliest Jobs
This re-run is from October 2011
One of my favorite TV shows is “The Deadliest Catch” on the Discovery channel.This show, which is about crab fishing in the Alaska Bering Sea, claims that working on a crab boat out of Alaska is the world’s most dangerous job.While it is indeed a very dangerous occupation, I’m not sure how they determine it is theMOSTdangerous.Certainly a combat soldier is more dangerous; policemen could make a case that their job is more dangerous, firefighters risk their lives on a regular basis, and miners are lost to cave-ins every year.
All these careers can be treacherous, but there are other ways to make a living that might be even more dangerous than these accepted dangerous jobs.Listed below in order of their potential peril are the 10 most unappreciated dangerous jobs in the world:
1.A manager of McDonalds in New Delhi, India
2.A redheaded freckle faced drug dealer in the South Bronx, NYC
3.A dradle salesman in Iran
4.An underwater electrician
5.Any Al Qaeda leader
6.A supervisor in the US Postal Service
7.A bullet-proof vest tester
8.The quarterback for the Chicago Bears
9.A sky writer in China… (Think about it!)*
And #10, the most dangerous job in the world
A Danish artist with a syndicated cartoon strip “Oh That Mohammad!”
*Last time around people did not get this, which probably means it is only funny to me. The Chinese write from Top to bottom, not right to left. Seems to me this would make sky writing dangerous. Maybe it's just me.
