12th Best Job in the World?!

Someone recently brought this to my attention: a WSJ article ranking various jobs. Philosopher ranks #12 between physicist and economist and two ahead of parole officer. Awesome! I knew it was a good gig, but I guess I didn't know how good. I wonder where my other career aspirations of lion tamer and topiary gardener fell. . . .

I particularly enjoyed this exchange in the online comments section [SICed]:
They have philosopher ranked in the top 20 ? how does one get employement as a philosopher?
Great question! I possess some really deep thoughts too, I'd make a great philosopher! I think I'll start an independent philosophy company. If it doesn't work out, I'm sure the government will bail me out.
