    If you're an Outdoors writer, you should be able to live in a tent. Amirite?
    BOOM! Saved $7,000 a year in rent right there.
    Hunt for food and tend some crops (You're an Outdoors writer after all!) and BOOM! Huge savings on the ol' food bill every month.
    This job sounds better and better every minute.

    I like the sound of living on the government dole better. Why work? You'll get paid that much by Uncle Sam to do nothing, and get a free cell phone too.

    And what are the odds that it's a five-day per week job, or anything less than 60 hours per week? There's a lot of responsibilities listed there in the ad.

    I would wager this job pays less than minimum wage when you figure in all the hours you'll work, and good luck getting a second job with all of the expectations and schedule swings.
