At some point, we all gripe about our jobs. Whether it's an overbearing boss, a difficult or tedious assignment or having to deal with rude people, we've all felt we had reason to say: 'Man, I have the worst job ever.' But according to this month's issue of Popular Science, which asked hundreds of scientists to nominate candidates for its second annual Worst Jobs in Science list, there are 15 jobs whose holders are particularly well qualified to utter that phrase. Top of the list is anal-wart researcher, followed by worm parasitologist, lab-animal veterinarian and such other exotically horrific entries as Iraqi archaeologist. In the interests of pure research, CitySeen found someone who occasionally works with anal warts, dermatolist Henry Chan Hin-lee, but he disagreed with the job's dubious honour. 'For the patient who has these symptoms, it's my job to treat them and make them better,' he explained. 'I cannot see why it should be the worst science job.' His nominee? Laser hair removal.
