As Danny Neilson lounges on a couch in the "chill room" of L.A.'s Laserium, after a Friday-night show last year, he takes a moment to pat himself on the back for a job well done. "We really have no competition with some of the effects we're doing in there," he says, gesturing toward the viewing room, where he's just guided a small audience through a 45-minutes laser journey set to the Pink Floyd classic, The Dark Side of the Moon. "We're trying to preserve the art form."
As "chief laserist," Neilson's art is bringing music alive by choreographing the movements of lasers - tens of thousands of dollars worth - like an orchestra conductor.
When my family's fortune suddenly went kaput, I discovered a talent for convincing unsuspecting saps that I can read the future. But when they started telling me their darkest fears, I was the one who got scared out of my mind.
Mindless slide after slide in your endless deck of slides. Somebody thinks that they are effectively getting their message across to coworkers, colleagues, or clients. They're just wasting time.

Scattered across the United States and Canada is a series of privately owned and operated family campgrounds, all called Jellystone Park. Every one of the 83 parks pays employees to put on a costume each day of the camping season and make the rounds as an overweight, 57-year-old anthropomorphic cartoon kleptomaniac named Yogi Bear. In one of those parks, in one of those costumes, I am that employee.

So you'd like to leave an anonymous mention about your boss in an online and searchable database? Sure, you could get your point across more directly with a nasty letter of resignation. Nah, Tell on the Boss instead.

Several of the fired workers say they wore the matching colors so they would be identified as a group when heading out for a happy hour event after work. They say the executive who fired them initially accused them of wearing the matching color as a form of protest against management.
Ironically, had the employees been wearing orange as a form of protest, it would have been illegal to fire them.

Mike Rowe, creator of the TV show "Dirty Jobs," testified before the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation on the de-skilling of America, and the way in which skilled manual labor has been undervalued and derided in the USA to its detriment.
If you think that you've got the worst job in the world, and it is not covered on this list, think again.
With that in mind, if you, or someone you know, has one of these 15 most stressful jobs in the world, hopefully by the end of this article you will have a better appreciation for what they do, day in and day out.
Unemployed? If so, you probably miss more than just the paychecks - the workplace is also where most of your human interaction comes from. If you're mourning the nuggets of gold that you generally hear between the cubes, pop another Monster and shuffle through CoWorkerGold's twitter feed while waiting for TPIR to start.
