Holler if you see a flame, Bernie!
Hey, Blog Guy! A lot of us out here watch your blog constantly for career advice, because you weigh the pros and cons of jobs like belly dancing, contortionism, snake handling, voluntary mutilation and other opportunities our guidance counsellors may be hiding from us. Have you spotted anything new ?
Well, yes. If somebody offers you the job of sticking your head in the back-end of a massive Long March 2 rocket, like the dude in this photo, you may want to pass, or at least ask detailed questions about protective masks and the dental plan. And be wary if they tell you it’s only a “model” rocket – that’s the oldest trick in the book.
