That's very interesting and quite intriguing. Can you provide more details?
Probably a porn star....
But if I were to pick a less socially frowned upon job, it would be a late night talk show host. You get to meet celebrities, and are world famous yet you don't have to do that much except have good comical timing, because the jokes you tell are pre written and the questions you ask are as well.
@inlife: I joined this thing and paid all this money for all this stuff... all these tools to succeed... but the tools sucked... but I created a website anyway and an online business... was a beautiful site, lots of products, had it all figured out... I sold goggles and safety glasses... it was called GogglesEmporium... but I only sold like 4 pairs or so, and the company screwed me over, was a big hassle, would not recommend.
Probably a porn star....
I actually considered that seriously for a while.
Male pornstars have it good, you get paid quite a bit just to bang hot girls for an hour or so, then you go home. And unlike the women, you don't have to be that good looking, I've seen...ahem, I mean, A friend of mine, has seen some truly fugly looking male leads.
@the_stegman: Maybe the industry has changed since this very good BBC documentary was released but it shows how most male performers don't have it that well and a lot have to "go gay for pay" to make it.

@russellmania77: Me and you would be good friends.
Same for me, I have had cartoon characters fighting, having chaotic mis adventres and romantic relationships in my head for close to 10 years, It's only been till now that I have more or less an idea which is based around how the world governments would deal with a meta human appearing and the secrets being kept by them start leaking and being shown to the world because of this one meta human which starts to piss them off and cause chaos and mistrust within them.
@russellmania77: I Know the feeling, I have no idea how many times Ive changed it. Everytime I do I think I've nailed it. Let's just say the original had a comic relief werewolf best friend, they were in high school, a kid could perform surgery on a burn victim and somehow by putting freezing chemicals in her lungs she got ice powers. It was bad and everything was way too simple. If you want we should shoot the shit and talk ideas we should PM so that our brilliance isnt stolen. The only thing I need is someone who can draw, if I can get someone Ill crank out a script, because if Im not properly motivated I put stuff off forever.
Leadership engenders too much responsibility, and with me in charge, would probably lead to a bloody coup. I just want a lucrative writing gig that gives me an international travel budget, health insurance, and access to notorious interview subjects, such as Empress @lykopis. A tenured teaching gig in an MFA program would be nice, as well.
Video game developer/journalist. I'd choose to be an independent developer, wouldn't really stick with an exclusive deal with anyone as to broaden my audience. I'd take my time with games, not rushing anything and only releasing a game when I'm fully confident that it's ready.
That last bit sounds like an R&B song lol.
I guess I'll take that as a compliment then!
I used to want to be a writer (pretty much any kind of writer: comics, books, films, all that stuff), but I am a really harsh self-critic and as a result I can't bring myself to write anything because no matter what I write I think it's crap and end up discarding it. It's pretty frustrating.
But my dream job would be bass guitarist of a moderately successful band. Preferably one that plays pop-punk music (like Blink-182, Fall Out Boy, etc.).
Oh, and a porn star in addition to that. I was thinking about legitimately become a porn star, but I hear it kind of sucks (hur hur).
@nelomaxwell: Thanks for the vote of confidence, I don't expect to be a billionaire, I just love finance and I think it would be great if I could be the boss of my own small investment firm, that way I could set the trading policy and have control over the stuff you just don't when working for one of the big banks. Not to mention being your own boss also has the other benefits of choosing your own hours and et cetera.
