    Yes, all the amateur comedians will have their answers but aside from that:

    Who, for a real living, does the strangest things? Who has the oddest job?

    I create nothing. I wiggle my fingers and sometimes move one arm. I put 1's and 0's in different patterns. I copy things other people create then generally don't anything with it.

    I was a bouncer once... didn't care for it, don't recommend it.

    I also used to build race cars for a living. When I worked for an Ingersoll Rand dealership, I used to think that this job not only sucks, it blows. *rimshot*

    Traveled with a circus for 2 years during the summer time. It stressed my parents out big time,,,but I thought it was fun. The performers really like to party after the last show of the day.

    Yeah, no matter how people try to describe it, bus drivers, computer programers, museum curators...all pretty normal jobs.

    You, you have an interesting job. It wont win the "strangest" award but it is not mainstream. (and I think it is cool as can be)

    I dont think that is a strange job at all. Museum curation is pretty normal.

    Hacing said that, I think that is awesome. I would be very happy doing what you do for the things I like (while I am an art guy, I couldnt make that my career) Curating for a museum for something I have a passion for would give me a lot of satisfaction.
