  •  Maybe not the most dangerous job (0+ / 0-)

    A friend told me recently that crop dusters have the highest fatality rate. You're flying a plane low over the ground and if your attention wanders for a moment, you hit a gust of wind or some power lines and you're dead. It sort of made sense to me. But I don't know if it's true.

    On the other hand, there are always job openings in that field. So that's good. If you want to do it, they're hiring.

    Another dangerous job is a smoke jumper. Strap on a parachute and then float down to fight a forest fire. My god! I would never do that. Those 19 guys who just died in Arizona are heroes. Dead, but heroes.

    I don't think I'd want to be a coal miner, either.
