You may often joke that watching Netflix may as well be your job... Well, now it can be! The "tagger" position requires you to watch endless movies and TV shows and categorize them in a way that computers can't. Do you think they get a free subscription too?
We can't quite figure out why, but apparently Cambridge University (as funded by the Lego Foundation) plans to start a "Lego Professorship of Play in Education, Development and Learning." People say education is a building block to success... I guess they weren't kidding.
Imagine the fun you could have telling people their fortunes despite having no psychic abilities whatsoever. It'd be like playing God. We're drunk with power just thinking about it. Ok, maybe we're just drunk.
Most of us are given the old disapproving side-glare if we dare to laugh while at work, but there's a job where it's actually essential. Laughter therapy, usually performed in groups, is said to release feel-good chemicals and reduce stress. You don't even have to be a good joke teller to qualify.
Imagine flying a blimp! We didn't even realize there was a cockpit (as evidenced by our visual interpretation) and we bet it would be awesome to float at the speed of a bicycle, waving to the adoring crowd below. Blimp my ride, am I right?!
If owning a private island hasn't happened for you just yet, then we've got the next best thing. The rich and famous who own these paradises visit so sparingly that they need people to house-sit and keep the place looking perfect. I guess we'll do it...if we have to!
Pairing wine with food has been an actual job for years, but now that craft beer is such a thing, the world also calls for beer pairing experts, or "cicerones" if you will. And if you won't, we just might. Drinking beer for money? Hell. Yes.
In the North Pole (aka: Alaska), there's actually a demand for people to write letters to children from Santa. So, if you like making kids smile and have good handwriting, then this is the Christmas job for you! Don't forget to bring a jacket, though, because it's pretty chilly up there.

At Disneyland and other theme parks there's one magical person in charge of making us all say "Wow!" while gaping at a technicolor sky of dreams. We imagine them to be the happiest person alive and would very much like to be their replacement when they mysteriously disappear under totally unsuspicious circumstances...
Gaming nerds rejoice! Someone has gone and made your favorite hobby into a full-blown career. Every game in development goes through many rewrites before it hits the shelves and therefore requires test audiences. So stock up the snacks, draw the curtains and get to work my friends!
If you fall asleep on this job, you won't be written up... In fact, you'll be rewarded. Luxury bed manufacturers need to ensure quality and the only way to test their product is to have someone use it. Nothing like going to work in your PJ's!
There are few things in this life greater than chocolate and it's about time more of us honored that. You can do exactly that by becoming a chocolatier. Just have some good recipes on hand (we can think of about 20 already) and an entrepreneurial spirit. Don't worry about finding someone to test the flavors, because we've totally got your back!
