    I sell airplane parts to the US military. Aviation specialist and government contracting. Would have more money to buy Lego but I was divorced and lost everything.... cars, house. Prenup sounds good right about now and if I did I probably would be sitting on a a much larger pile of Lego. Yeah but my job is stressful so sometimes money is not always worth the migraines.

    @Diamondback_Six  .......That's a very cool job. I assume you have been to the D-day museum here in New Orleans. I love going there and getting the tours that the vets give. It's one of my favorite places here in town.
  • Diamondback_SixDiamondback_Six Member Posts: 491
    @Thanos75: Not yet, but it's on my Bucket List, as is the Nimitz Museum in Texas. Pay lacking, no bennies, but it lets me maintain perishable skills while I work on finishing my BA and trying to engineer my way into a professorship.
  • Thanos75Thanos75 Member Posts: 1,120
    Well if you ever do make it this way for the museum let me know. I am always looking for an excuse to go.

    I can't work much due to my disability (I'm Autistic). I work once or sometimes twice a week in retail/returns management at a family owned store. (Not my family, but I mention it because often an ordinary store like H&M wouldn't make it possible to have a job like I do. I can't answer the phone for example.) 

    Dream job area and other passion (besides of LEGO) is mental health in children. I own a whole bookshelf full with books about that topic and I did some work there as well. I was a trainee (sort of) at a day care thing for young Autistic children and I have given speeches and training to professionals (clinical psychologists in training, teachers...) about Autism as well. (Together with my best friend who works as a psychiatric doctor in a hospital.) 

    Obviously that is not enough "for a living". I'm a spoiled single child (and only grandchild) in my other life. ;-)

    Good to see, in the course of recent months (I've just rediscovered Lego this year) that Lego community mostly includes of intelligent people with great sense of humour. And I don't say this to complement myself as I'm new here ;)

    I'm managing small company here in Poland. Mostly, we buy and sell office supplies and forward the goods to other cities/countries.

    @Thanos75 - Are you sure you're not the adult film star 'Buck Naked', and sell Frozen adult toys as well? 

    Punchline #2:  Your vocation reflects your Fantasy Football draft strategy:  Can never have too many tight ends.

    I'm starting to feel the effects of NyQuil.  But I haven't taken any...

    A very interesting thread... I work for the UK's air navigation service provider as an IS Analyst. Until recently I spent most of my time developing business solutions to run on the company intranet, using ASP.NET/SQL Server but unfortunately nowadays I write specifications so that 3rd party companies can develop business solutions to run on the company intranet, and act as liaison between customer and 3rd party :( @vynsane, we're about to implement SharePoint 2010. Any tips? When I grow up I want to run Brickset full-time ;-)

    I guess you’ve grown up!
