Suddenly your job doesn’t seem so bad

From today’s Globe and Mail:
“This year’s winner of Popular Science’s ‘Worst Jobs in Science’ feature was the ‘hazmat diver,’ a unique group of people who ‘swim into clouds of waste, inside nuclear reactors and through toxic spills.’ One such person recalled his worst dive, which took place at a pig farm. ‘A guy had driven his truck into the waste lagoon and drowned,’ Steven Barsky said. ‘Not only was it full of urine and liquid pig feces, the farmer had dumped all the needles used to inject the pigs with antibiotics and hormones in there.’”
