I enjoy having sex. But if I had to have sex, as quickly as possible, as many times as I could do it during an 8 hour shift, with just about whoever wanted to have sex with me, and do this 5 days a week, I would not report that having sex would be my ideal job. Especially if many of the people I was told by dispatcher that I had to have sex with, were rude, disrepectful, and threatening. I enjoy driving, but...
A good job would be driving a few nice people around, a few times a day, in a nice car, for a lot of money. Another good job would be owning my own place that sold tires, did wheel alignment service, brake service, and sold car batteries.
My ideal job would be farming, using vegan methods. http://shakahara.com/garden6.html
Doing vegan gardening as a hobby, I used computer spreadsheets to make calculations and predictions of the effects of compost, green manures, cover crops, and various commercial soil amendments, on available, usable, and bound nutrients in the soil, as well as on amounts of organic matter in the soil, and soil pH. I also made calculations and predictions of the amount of nutrient depletion, caused by growing various crops at various densities, in various kinds of soil, and therefore how to amend the soil to grow the various crops. I included info from soil tests of nutrients and organic matter made by cooperative extension, and made by myself with a test kit, before and after carrying out the above-mentioned soil activities.
Learning how to improve the soil to provide optimal yield
of the same crop, year after year, in the same land area, worked out well. Learning how to improve the soil to provide optimal flavor and texture
of of the same crop, year after year, in the land area, turned out to be more challenging. The obvious way to get optimal flavor is to grow the crop in soil in which that crop has never been grown before. But continually finding new land to use is not always practical.
