    Well, this is comforting ... and not at all surprising.

    As for the worst job of 2013? Newspaper reporter bumped last year’s loser, lumberjack, for the ignominious distinction.

    Lumberjacks dress better.

    Actuary was number one. The ratings obviously do not include boredom as a negative factor. Reporting is not dull, not always, anyway.

    Just because you might find a particular job boring (or exciting) does not mean that others would.
  5. Actuary being the best job is not a surprise. Have heard that from various sources for the past 20 years.

    You can't get a source on the record to praise actuaries? What are you CNN?

    Actors never expected to make a living at it anyway? ;)

    For a living? Or for one day?
  9. And they have a realty show.
  10. Anecdotal sources, so yes, I am CNN.
  11. Ever read of an actuary named in a news story or going crazy and killing a bunch of co-workers, except for Mark Linn-Baker on the right, who portrayed an actuary in Law & Order:Criminal Intent.
