Just a few ways to be profitably and pleasantly (if uselessly) employed, from Stanley Bing’s book, “100 Bulls**t Jobs and How to Get Them” (Harper Collins).

A reader from Michigan writes:

The good side: Being all powerful, being seen as a Savior, and knowing how to look busy during the day while you spend all day arguing on Slashdot.

The bad side: You make goth girls look like George Hamilton.

The dark side: Spending hours on conference calls with other computer geeks, blaming each other for some silly-assed configuration error that can be fixed in 1.2 seconds.

The next job?: Air Traffic Controller

Readers, what do you think? Is this a bulls**t job?
