@Greg @liw i sometimes think that anyone who intends to embark on a software career should be forced to spend some time as an implementation detail of some grinding, miserable office bureaucracy beforehand. does wonders for perspective on all the people who will one day be subjected to your work...

Some professions work hard to put themselves out of work. Examples: doctors, sysadmins. Can you suggest more?
