Best and Worst Jobs: Al Qaeda Leader

Scott Adams thinks about the best and worst jobs and concludes,

Yet another “third highest ranking al-Qaida leader†has been killed, this time by a rocket attack from an unmanned drone. There are a lot of jobs that I wouldn’t want, and “third highest ranking al-Qaida leader†is right at the top. But I can tell you for sure that if I ever got that job, the first thing I’d do is narc out one of the top two guys so I could move up a notch.

A point that’s been made before. But Adams goes beyond the call of duty and explains why the guy operating the aforementioned drone has the best job in the world.

    Operating the drone…just like a reality video game … ONLY BETTER!

    The “kill” is legal.
