Ever sneak a quick sniff to see if your deodorant has worn off? Imagine doing that 60 times an hour. To different peoples’ armpits. Every day. That’s like smelling 2400 armpits a week. Deodorant testers do this for a living. They aren’t the only ones sniffing their way through the day. Halitosis judges judge the extent of different individuals’ breath. Mouthwash needs to get tested somehow! Following your nose to success sounds pretty gross but regardless can bring you home a salary of up to $52,000 per year.
Did you know that the average human farts 13.6 times a day? Well now you do. And the reason for that is for our friendly Fart Statisticians, who spend their days building statistics on farting to determine what levels above average indicate a medical problem.
I can’t even clean up my own puke. Imagine cleaning up vomit from kids and adults alike after eating hot dogs, cotton candy and going on a windy roller coaster ride. Can’t. Rhys Owen, the official vomit collector at Thorpe Park made a comment to The Daily Mail. “Although being responsible for cleaning up peoples’ puke is a bit gross, I am up for taking on the chunder challenge,” says Owen. “I absolutely love roller coasters and the perk of being able to ride them for free makes the sick collection worth it – I may have to invest in a nose peg though!” He must REALLY like roller coasters.
There’s nothing like wading through septic tanks or swimming around searching for a dead body. I guess after a while it’s kind of like "Where’s Waldo", only Waldo’s been dead for a few days. At the bottom of a lake.
Maggots are a very popular snack for several different types of fish. So they are a common item on your average fisherman’s shopping list. A maggot farmer is the person who reproduces maggots for fishing bait. Considering their rancid smell, maggot farmers have to shower at least 3 times a day. For $34,900 a year, I still wouldn’t.
It’s pretty safe to assume when it comes to DNA research that some nasty stuff has to be done, but this particular job might take the cake. After collection of the … subject matter… that’s when the poop stirring assistants are called in. Contrary to the job title, the poop actually has to be shaken (not stirred!) with some kind of liquid to make a special liquid solution. Gross.
...and you think your job stinks.
