    No thanks

    Given some of what I've already seen on the Internet, there's no way you could pay me to take this job. What has seen cannot be unseen, and my sanity is already hanging on by a thread.

      I've read (maybe here) about problems faced by people who think that looking at porn all day would be a great job. They soon find out that some of the stuff they have to look at is nasty beyond anything they ever imagined, and, like you said, what has been seen cannot be unseen.

      Next step: blubbing their hearts out to a psychiatric counsellor. Yes: it can be that bad.

      And anyway, even if it wasn't, porn all day?

    Exactly the kind of experience gained running a brothel.

    $32,375? They could post a few ads on fiver and save a fortune. I'm sure they could get quite a few people to do this job at $5 for an hour or so worth of work. I'm sure they could even find some free applicants.

    The Web 2.0 method .....

    I'd do it for free and work long hours. I'd finance the operation by selling advertising on a daily blog containing examples of my work and my 'stream of conciousness' thoughts on the subject.

    Oh, .... wait a minute.

    Sorry, got distracted there for a moment.
