    For me it might be law. Either that or I would design and manufacture parts and accessories for vehicles. If I were younger I might go into law enforcement with the idea of becoming a detective.

    What say you?

          This is a serious thread and I expect serious responses only.

          I would like to be a business consultant like we have had in the past that assists small business in being a success while not being compensated. Plenty of people have ideas that might work, but lack understanding of many things that create a profitable business.

          Well, since I can't answer male model now, it would either be college football coach or a chef (I enjoy cooking southern dishes). It would be tempting to say Quail hunting guide or, like @ExecutiveGator a professional golfer, but those are two hobbies and I think having them for a job might encroach on the enjoyment they provide.

            Ok, I always wanted to be a ninja, and not one of them youtube trailerpark ninjas either, a real black costume , smoke tossing and shuriken throwing ninja.

            Or even on of those late night American Ninja show guys. They are cool, too, but definitely my second preferred type of ninja.

            I also like pirate. I'd make a great pirate. I love rum after all.

              I’m kind of doing what I want to do now.
              But- if I had to pick another profession it would be a musician.

                  I would have learned to throw a killer breaking ball as a kid and become a relief pitcher in the majors. Pitch an inning max every couple games and still make 7 figures.

                    Is this hypothetical assuming success?

                    I always wanted to be a Veterinarian but didn’t want to go through that much schooling.

                    I also would like to have been a Detective in Law Enforcement.

                    Of course there’s always the College Football Coach, assuming success of course.

                    I still think I’ve got a shot at the Professional Golfer. There’s always the Senior Tour.

                        I too would like to be a NFL quarterback or a PGA tour pro. I was thinking however of realistic occupations to pursue since if could do either of those things I would have done them the first time around. Realistically, if your job became obsolete tomorrow, what would you switch to?

                        Farmer/rancher... or ninja gang member.

                        I’m working on the farming thing, sadly, most of my regular work will never be obsolete

                          Trauma surgeon, front man/guitar player in a rock band or dive instructor. In that order.

                            I think that’s the Buckaroo Banzai character... no, seriously, I mean it.

                            EDIT: OK, I looked it up, you want to be this guy!

                            The premise centers upon the efforts of the polymathDr. Buckaroo Banzai, a physicist, neurosurgeon, test pilot, and rock musician, to save the world by defeating a band of inter-dimensionalaliens called Red Lectroids from Planet 10.
