What would you like to do / would have liked to have done?

I always wanted to be an automotive designer but, for one reason and another, I wasn't able to study the relevant subjects at college and I ended up as a lawyer, and subsequently running an inbound tour operation.

I'd also liked to have been a highway patrolman in America:

{Sound of sirens blaring in the background}

"Attention Highway Control: this is Sheriff B.T. Eggleston III heading north on Interstate 75 past the off ramp for Highway 82. I'm in hot pursuit of a couple of hillbilly dudes in a goddamn orange '69 Dodge Charger with a Confederate flag painted on the roof: they're straighten' the curves and they're flatten' the hills and that's just a bit more than this law enforcement officer will allow. Yee-ha! Over and out."

As much as you talk about KFC and all, I think I've seen you actually be serious about wanting to be a poultry farmer.

That's something that not most people aspire to. What's the fascination?

Chickens are cool, and I like the simple life. You have to work hard though.

Have you ever been to a chicken farm? Have you ever smelled them before? It's one of the most revolting smells to come from a farm animal. <barf>
I'm not back. This idiot just upset me which made me stop lurking.

Smells quite good actually. I worked at a chicken farm over the summer and everyone said "this will cure him from his crazy dream!" nope...

That's fascinating. I would hate living the simple life, so to speak.

This. The smell alone makes me want to be a vegetarian.

I'm not sure what I want to be yet, but something to do with Psychologist/Therapist. I'd love to be a professor some time in the future.

Or business management... that's really my forte, and also what I study in school. Hopefully management of my own business of course :P

Sports broadcaster. It was between that, and nuclear engineering, so I went with nuclear engineering. After six years of operating nuclear reactors, I realized that I should have gone with broadcasting, however I am happy being in business for myself these days(automotive). That is not to say, I don't still think about going to Mizzou, and fulfilling my dream of announcing for Tigers games, and the like.

I want to be a neonatologist. First I'd have to go to med school, then study pediatrics and finally neonatology.
For those that don't know what a neonatologist is, it's a doctor that specializes on babies before they're born and in their first couple of months of life.
I also always wanted to be a Fashion designer and study zoologist. It was a tough choice because they are totally different careers, but I will end up choosing neonatology.
I love babies and little kids!!!

Babies are shapeless bags of fat that cry and are only good for demanding things and waking you up at night.

Detestable little creatures they are.

Luckily it only takes a few years before they turn into kids. Kids are fun.

One of my favorite things to do is teach kids to say things you wouldn't expect a kid to say.. I've got my 4 year old cousin saying "A cow is a domesticated animal"

It's hilarious.

It would be cool to be a teacher or something, but instead I'll probably just end up as an entrepreneur or something.

60K at the time. I really don't know what it is now, but I am glad I declined. It's just a lot of bureaucracy and monotony everyday, and unfortunately a lot of those guys and gals in the nuclear field are either crazy or have ZERO common sense. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed my time in the navy and it opened a lot of doors for me in the private sector, but I don't think I would ever go back.
