    I hope you are not considering this job

    That's quite a specific qualification list:
    - jumping
    - running
    - climbing
    - crawling
    - carrying heavy loads (equipment and wear a water hydration system, issued protective armor and weapon)
    - able to function in extreme heat
    I could only think of one qualified person....

    Lol, Larry would make a great combat photog, but i think we would all rather he stay here with us, and you too Bosco. The money is quite tempting but lots of things are more important than money, like not getting shot and stuff like that. I bet that job has a high turnover rate. I hope my nephews, who are finally home from the war, do not see that ad.

    Sounds like the job for me! I could certainly use the money (particularly after the tax-man catches up with me soon: ouch!), and oddly it appeals to me a lot more than selling cars.

    I wonder what you need the driver's license for.

    Whether or not it's serious, craigslist scares me... so many people at there with stupid ambitions...

    They forgot :

    don't expect to survive;
    life insurance policy is not possible;
    bring only your GOS2, you must fiddle around a bit;
    and order a new DAW (Death At Work).

    Raymond - it is tempting and don't send Larry, I'll miss his weekly compositions!!!

    that's because the employer wants to make sure that a terrorist doesn't apply for the training, and then go over and blow up our people and get some good video of it.

    David, you do know that you must be a US citizen in order to get a driver's license. No smiley for this.. oh well.
