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:

Sit and watch the robot do all the work, record statistics of the work every once and a while.  If it breaks call maintenance to come fix it for you.

Pay 13.00-20.00/hour

Upside:
You get to sit on your butt and do nothing all day

Downside:
Sitting for 8 hours a day for a couple of weeks straight hurts after a while, plus it is incredibly boring.

Darkside: You get lots of time to think, you start plotting ways to actually do some work.

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