This article, on the 'Best, dangerous science jobs' from WIRED magazine last year isn't especially in depth or especially funny or interesting but I just love the graphics. I'll be using the monkey one in class a couple of times next week so I thought I'd pass on the credit here. Thomas Fuchs I salute you.
Popular Science magazine has an annual article on the worst jobs in science. Cherie mentioned that tick dragger made the list in their very first year. Their latest listing is here.
