This is a very good list but if I were you, I would change the title. Some of those jobs are not horrible. Like for example, I think a lion tamer or a street mime are actually a pretty cool jobs. So, I would switch 'horrible' by 'weird'. Anyway, it is your list.

Well done! Now, it is perfect. Good luck!

Mathew Maccognaghey maybe should have stayed with his previous job. But then again much hasn't really changed, the man still works with shit.

I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, Bidstag.com

Some are not even weird, just ordinary jobs like a carpenter, milkman, bank teller... Anyway, Sylvester Stallone as a lion tamer is weird indeed! :)
