Dear Blog Guy,
I know you’ve recently been advising college seniors on possible career choices – snake handling, glass eating, etc. But just how are people supposed to know if they chose the right profession in life?

It’s very difficult, and it varies from person to person. But I think as a rule, if you’re noticing that some dude is using a hardware store claw hammer to pound a big nail into your tongue while a needle sticks through your cheek, well, maybe you have a bone to pick with your high school guidance counselor.
A “scissors” dancer hammers a nail into fellow dancer’s tongue during the national scissors dance competition in Peru, April 22, 2007. During the Peruvian Scissors Dance (Danza de las Tijeras), dancers compete by dancing as well as by taking part in trials such as glass-eating, walking on fire or sticking wires into their body to show spiritual superiority.
