    strangest occupations

    This subject is on Yahoo news today. Gave me this completely worthless idea.
    Post the strangest occupation of someone you personally know. I'll start.
    Have a friend who is a horse dentist. Yeppers, does fillings and stuff on horses. I think that's kinda strange.

    Well... taking into account that I know a horse physiotherapist that gets quite a lot of money giving massages to horses that doesn't sound so strange to me, horses do deserve to eat and chew properly don't they?

    When I was farming with my dad and brother, I took a course at college to artificially breed cows.....when I returned to the family farm, I took the place of a couple of people dad paid to do the "service". Not only did I artificailly breed our 300 head cross-bred cow herd.....I got paid to do the same service for other farmers cows in the area.

    When Michigan State University did testing on our cow herd and fertility expieriments (Lutalyse and Synchro-mate B) I was pretty impotent...err I mean important to their testing.

    maybe not strange, but different, in the early and mid 70s, I got paid nicely by a florist to sand weave designs on the bottom/under the soil of terrariums.
