If you could do any job for a week, what would it be? It has to be something that you're not doing now or have done in the past, and you will get all the knowledge of the job for the week so you can do the job.

I can think of a few things I'd like to try:

The head of MI5. I'd love to know all of the secret things that we're never told about.

On the same line of thinking, it would be good to be the US president for a week. It would be very interesting, and it's possible you could put forward some ideas that could improve people's lives.

On a more realistic scale, maybe something like a fashion photographer. I'm always interested to see lives that I'm likely to never be involved with - all the hidden social circles of beautiful people, money, and probably lots of drugs and misery.

What would you like to do for a week?

I'd go for detective in the Dutch Vice squad, really make a difference. When I was doing my last study I learned about the job those guys have to do (for example analysing and categorising pornographic material is a task that has to be done by someone different every two weeks to prevent people from getting depressions, burnouts and suicidal thoughts) and I could make a difference catching pedophiles.

More of a fantasy would be being in a Special Mission Unit of the US (like Seal Team Six, the guys that took down Osama bin Laden), going after the big bad guys.

It's not too late to start training for the Dutch marines if the game development doesn't work out ;D

Haha, I'd wish. Amongst the laundry list of things that are wrong with me is my scoliosis, which means I'd never get through the physical checkup. Believe me, I checked tongue.gif

EDIT: And come to think about it, even if I was to stop/be forced to stop studying game development I'd still learn by myself. *cue Celine Dion*

Just put on a boiler suit, half-unzipped and with your bra showing, then drive around on a tank. No-one will ever be able to tell the difference ;D

I think I'd like to do a job in something I take for granted. Like working in a shoe factory, or boiler insulation and check ups, programer or a medical doctor.

Tricky one. *thinks some more*

I'd be an astronaut. That's one of those jobs that I'd want to test out first before actually committing to.

Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldnít be here if stars hadnít exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - werenít created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget God. The stars died so that you could be here today. ~Lawrence Krauss

Why? It would be interesting, but I've always wondered how on earth she manages to stop herself from yawning as she sees yet another tribal dance begin in front of her. If I were the Queen I'd demand stand-up comedians everywhere and ban dance troupes.

I would sell the entirety of the crown jewels, and change the palace into a free clinic for mental rehabilitation.

You said I could be anything, and only for a day. The real queen would be broke tomorrow, and the people a lot richer.

Actually the queen brings in far more money for the people than it costs to maintain her. We'd lose money (a lot of money) if we lost the queen.
Here's why: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhyYgnhhKFw

If I could be any job for a week then that's easy. This isn't a silly answer or an imaginative one, but it is something I would love to do so much. I'd be an astronaut. One that gets to do a space walk.
Pretty simple really. Going to space would be a dream for me.

And our clinic's are already free. Admittedly the health service could do with more cash but you can get free mental health help.

Still not sure what I'd want to do but probably not anything which puts me near big red button that would probably be bad.

It all depends on how seriously you take it.


Any job for a week, eh? Having been jobless for awhile now, I'm tempted to say "Freaking anything that would pay me for the week."
However, I'd be a rock star. Getting to go out on stage and have hundreds of people cheer for you? awesome. Or maybe, along the same line of thinking, a stand up comedian. It'd be awesome to not only get the whole cheering-for-you bit, but to make so many people laugh. The best medicine, by far.

The first time I used the remote microphone in the big hall I just had to say 'HELLO BREDA! ARE YOU READY TO... LEARN?!'. It needed more dry ice to give the full impression, I think.

It's boring. I went to the launch party for Rankin's new magazine. (ex-girlfriend contributed on several articles). But yeah. Boring.

I'd like to be... I don't suppose it's a job, but a shaolin monk. But only if they let me keep my hair... biggrin.gif
