Interesting Computer Science Jobs?

beacher Net Nanny / Firewall Link checker (352 comments)

I always thought that the people who got to add urls to the kiddie / work filters would have an interesting job.

It's been said before. There are things you just can't un-see. How much would you pay someone to surf the nastiest content on the net? Would you really hire people who enjoy it?

How To Cut In Line and Not Get Caught

beacher Re:Instant Cut Priveleges (256 comments)

When I was a kid at Six Flags I used to yell MOM! at the top of my lungs until I got towards the front of the line. Worked like a champ. I've changed it to calling out my kids names and asking if someone has seen my 8 year old, about yea high, etc etc... Sometimes I get called on it but it's usually worth the risk.
