A friend of mine just sent his cv to a prospective employer

and asked me to have a look at it first. The guy has the most amazing list of jobs on it. In one, he describes how he had Harrier fighter/bombers drop 500 pound charges around the building he was working in. The idea was to measure the impact vibration and its effect on the equipment in the building.

Which, it turns out, was the FBI at Quantico.

How come I never get to do stuff like that where I work?
