Note: the "Cross Cultural Enviromental Leadership (xcel) Acad" should have read "Scientology Leader"

I want to select so many of these...Although how is being a politician and a beauraucrat useless?

Yes, I wish it was possible on DDO to choose multiple options. It is indeed a challenge to choose which of these is the most useless of them all considering that so many of them are utterly useless. As for your second question, I included politician and beaurocrat in case anyone does feel that way.

I think people mistake "useful" for "positive." For instance, I consider Christian missionaries in Africa to be a net negative force, but there's still a USE for them - whether or not that use is good is irrelevant. Because then you could argue whether you should choose the most negative job or the one with the least effect on the world.

True dmussi12. But it is really a matter of perspective. For instance, a Ponzi Scheme is both useful and positive to the operator of the scheme. It is, however, useless and negative to just about everyone else.

You're right, but it operates in essentially the same way as the stock market: moves money from the least financially knowledgeable to the most (albeit in a manipulative way). I chose Pro Creationist because they literally tell people what they already "know."
