We're #20!

According to Career Cast, astronomers are 20th on a list of best jobs to have!

I was rather surprised to see the income listed as over $100,000. But then, long-tenured professors may skew that upward. My own life may drag that number down a bit. It might even make it imaginary.

Still, the list is obviously flawed, since biologists rate #4. But then, I guess a soft science job would be above a hard science job; otherwise we'd have a

Kelvin-Helmholtz Rayleigh-Taylor instability as soon as the list was disturbed.

Oh, sorry: for you scientists who study squishy things, here's what that means.

OK, just to make sure since there are so many humor-impaired people out there: that was a joke! I'm kidding. I love biologists; without them I'd have nothing to make fun of at all without it being mean.
