Death of a profession : LUSENET : I Wasn't Built to Get Up at this Time : One Thread

What jobs do you see dieing out in the near future? And do you know anybody who wants to be a vicar?

Opticianry (or whatever it's called). If laser surgery gets more reliable and cheaper, people's eyes can be sorted out early on in their lives and not need opticians. Wahey! (She says vindictively because friend formerly with benefits studying Optometry.)

Farming and veticianry, literally (she says, being topical).

Teaching. They never used to have "Those Who Can, Teach" adverts on at the cinemas, now, did they? (Although I can't say much of their ad campaign. You start answering the questions "yes", "yes", "yes", until they reach "Can you bring the dead back to life?" "Well, forget it then!") This is obviously because kids are getting more evil, and less and less people want to deal with them. Eventually, no one will and anarchy will reign! (She says, being punkish but impractical.)

And no. Although I have discovered that you get a free four-bedroomed house out of the bargain, whether you want a four-bedroomed house or not.

Well you see the world dieing overall as more and more people are rejecting God. If people truly want hope for better days they must turn from evil, and ask Jesus to save them, without whom there is no hope!

Professional cat tongue catchers. Do you have any idea how hard it is to catch a cat's tongue? It's bloody hard.
