One job I won’t be doing

I’ve mentioned a few times I’m leaving my current job soon.  I don’t know what my next job will be but I’ve come to the realisation that there are some jobs I can’t do.  It may surprise you to learn this, but there are some jobs that aren’t suited to people prone to explosive outbursts of anger.

So yeah, I figure that I’ll never be a starship captain.  And not only because Star Trek is fictional and I need a factual job.  It seems every crew from every series are a bunch of whiners.  I don’t think I’d even be able to limit myself to a phaser set to stun.  I’d be handing out photon torpedo suppositories.  And I’d tell the really annoying ones I was beaming them down to a planet to explore than make sure I missed by a few million kilometres and beamed them into the heart of a sun.

Although it would make for some great TV.

    You might do okay in the Star Wars universe. It’s apparently very difficult to control military-grade weapons technology there. It’s also easy to mount said weaponry on a light freighter. I think that’s why nobody ever cuts anybody else off in traffic.

    there’s a visual that goes good with milk and cornflakes

  3. Star-Trek and Trekkies really get on my tits. I could never understand why people watched it… in fact I still don’t.

    I’ve heard that TV is crap down under, but surely Star-Trek is scraping the barrel to breaking point?

  4. LOL

    I agree. StarFleet isn’t for you. But you might make a fine officer of the Imperial Army of the Galactic Empire…

    Or an excellent USMC Drill Instructor. (If, for some unholy reason you ever decided to become a Yank…)

    @goat
    I have one word for you. “Escapism”…

  5. Escapism? Thaks..it’s not the best word I’ve been given for sure, but it will look nice next to my Antidisestablishmentarianism.

    I not a total Sci-Fi hater… just Star-Trek. :|
