We've had a thread about what you actually do and even one about not being an expert at anything, so how about a thread about what you would like to do.

It could be the job you really want, the dream you want to fulfill, whatever...

I've always wanted to campaign a Stock or Super Stock class car for a season - follow the national events across the country. Lately, I think I would really love to do some SCCA or IMSA.

I'd also love to retire to the Gulf Coast with a nice house, but more importantly a sailboat of decent enough size to follow the coast from Texas to Florida to wherever if the mood hits me and the wife.

What about you?

Some day I want to be rich enough to wander the country buying up huge amounts of land. I would then post it, "HUNTING AND FISHING ONLY! All other uses prohibited. Violators will be shot".

All those urban animal rights fucks could take a flying leap at a rolling doughnut

That would be awsome.

Hmm, do we have to pick just one?

1. Professional tester of fishing equipment and guns. ( And I get to keep everything.)

2. Quality control technician for a PORNO company!

3. The guy that goes out and finds the white trash for the Jerry Springer show.

4. World wide midget hunter.

5. U.S. Army Transportation Corps Non-Commissioned Officer, a Leader of Soldiers......................nevermind, I guess I already have the best job on Earth.

Yeah, that would be great, too.

I'd love for someone to invite me to go out on a carrier and actually do some launches and traps, but I'm nobody, so it ain't gonna happen...

I would like to be a real life version of The Punisherr, cleansing the earth of people who truely need to die. People that "the system" would set free or not recognize; rapists, wife beaters, child molesters, drug dealers and even some addicts....all around basic scum. And when I wasnt busy kicking ass I would love to be independently wealthy so I could travel the world taking care of all of the ladies.

One of two things:

1. Become the next John Browning. Invent some really innovative weaponry, that will have a worldwide reputation of quality.

or

2. Become a regular on the PGA Tour up there with the likes of Woods, Mickleson, and Goosen. I have no idea why because I hate to watch golf, and I really, really suck at it.

Ride across the country on horseback.

Learn to weld better.

Next time the Chief asks me what I think...tell him what I actually think, complete with colorful language.

Learn to use a sextant.

Have a truck from the airport FD follow me around, and upon command, fill cars that have offending "bump dump" steros full to the headliners with A tripple F, while I tase the driver.

Personally thank every Soldier, Salior, Airman and Marine for their service and provide free college tuition for all their children.

Build a house on my own.

Join the Empire, as long as my recruitment contract says I get to be that sandtrooper on Tatooine riding the dewback.

On national television, be put in a very small room with Sean Pean and bat.

Spend a month volunteering in Africa, so I will never forget how blessed I am to be an American.

Stop getting rejection letters from publishers.

Stand post at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Whenever I've had a long day or week at work I usually tell the wife "I dream of wearing the orange apron" Meaning getting a job at Home Deopt where I can hang out and point people in the general direction of the 2x4's. No looming responsibility for things out of my direct control, basically something that doesn't consume the majority of my life. Someday I'll get there, until then its a cell phone on my hip and me needing to answer it 24/7/365.


Oh and owning my own Marina is up there on the dream list. Almost took the plunge this spring, but I just couldn't swing it and ensure security for the family.

Own my own firearms company so I can design and build some good stuff. Plus plenty of quality control checks of the product line

Lots of free time (and $$) to travel, take landscape photos, and glamour photos of lovely ladies I meet along the way

And climb Mount Everest. I would have included the middle Lhotse summit but it's now been climbed... I'd rather climb the southern route, but since I have tons of $$ in this fantasy, I would sponsor another research expedition on the Tibet side to find Irvine's remains and the camera to prove definitively if Mallory and Irvine made it to the top or not.

ETA: How could I forget... move out of this place, to some place with lower temps, lower humidity, lower allergens, better scenery and more freedom
