What do you want to be when you grow up?

Disregarding the generic answer, College, , what occupation do you really want to be when you grow up, even if it’s unbelievable?

Honestly, I probably would like to be an Astronaut.

( You don’t have to be solemn if you’re vague on your future occupation choice, just have fun )

I’d have the opportunity to be in space, and I’d be able to flip everyone off in Earth who are casually unaware that I’m doing so.

Or I may be a professional wrestler and have the gimmick of a rebellious zombie
who’s mad because he doesn’t get any respect from the locker room.

Oh, a man can dream, can’t he? Of course, I’m not technically a man.

Anyways, Tristan lazy discussion encouragement phrase:

BioticZombie actually expected me to say pirate, and he was right. Sort of, It was my second choice.
He also guessed Japanese Model. I suppose maid boy counts as that.
But, in all seriousness, theoretical physicist.

sound engineer
that ones quite realistic
a footballer
not for the fame or for the game itself
more for the money

I dunno. Maybe a Sysadmin, a manager, or a CEO of some tech company, realistically. I think I would be good managing resources.
Unrealistically, Theoretical Physicist, Biochemist, or Astrophysicist. Because I like to think about these things.

Lets see now… It would be awesome to be a famous musician, but perhaps being the swedish king isn’t so bad. Because you get shitloads of money by doing nothing and you can fund your daughters wedding from the peoples taxes…

One day I will be emperor.

@quoi: Choir kicks ass.

I personally would love to be a professional singer in a choir. Either that or a music historian that focuses on music from the late 40s to the late 70s.

When I grow up, I want to go back to the 1950’s.

An orange tree.

Also, @Tristan: No gore please

I want to be a space whore wrangler.

You see, in the future, brothels will open in space. In space, there are no prostitution laws, or laws at all for that matter. The conditions for the prostitutes will be terrible. Many will try to flee. It’s my job to wrangle them and bring them back to the space whorehouses.

I’ll be a hero.

@Captain Blubber: May I be your trusty sidekick who’s only there for mild comical relief?

Jun 18, 2010 at 05:33PM EDT

Sure, but you’ll have to brush up on your jokes about space, whores and the utter hell that is their living conditions.

sigh What do I want to do? I want to be a cynical and socially inept doctor who is able to diagnose rare diseases while insulting his patients, having sex with hookers, and downing unholy quantities of Vicodin.

I am a grown up (physically at least), and I am what I always wanted to be.

Jun 20, 2010 at 12:55PM EDT

Not to mention best sound track ever!
