Retired now, was in the Army, worked for the post office, and casinos.

Also dabbled in a few things that just didn't take off, a lawn sprinkler company in Seattle, and a company that made prescription windshields. The idea was people who wore glasses or contacts wouldn't need them to drive - and as a side benefit, prescription windshields would really cut down auto theft.

You'd have had a much better chance at success with orthopedic foot pedals.

    I'm a research technician working with radioactive isotopes. It's a job I've been doing for half my life.

      I was thinking of starting a skiing business but I heard the industry was going down hill, so I decided not to open one up.

        I used to work circumsizing elephants at the zoo.

        It didn't pay much but the tips were huge.

            I'm surprised no one has mentioned being a diesel fitter.

            A guy appled for a job at a hoisery company and said he had been a diesel fitter. When the interviewer asked how he could help that company he said, "Diesel fitters work quality control in pantyhose companies and as the finished product comes down the line they hold them up and say "diesel fitter".

            See Ya!

            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

              I had a childhood friend (RIP J.B.) who used to say "I'm not braggin', but the day after I got circumcised, Barnum and Bailey got a new tent."

                  I was walking across my livingroom the other day and all of a sudden I walked straight into a wall. The prescription on my glasses ran out.

                            I once worked on a charter fishing boat, baiting hooks.  I started out as a Trainee Baiter, worked up to Apprentice Baiter...

                            ....then decided I'd better quit before I went blind.
