I always hated that saying. Logically Hunting/Gathering must be the worlds oldest profession. Even if you hypothetically imagine the first people, we had to eat before we could have sex, much less offer something in exchange for the sex. And what did we offer when we first started offering for sex? Most likely food we hunted....

OP:

There's been a lot I've been contemplating -
Peace Corps, Teaching, PhD in Psych or PoliSci, Programming, Try to get in at a consulting firm, Get a second bachelors in a hard science now that I wouldn't have to worry about GPA.

details or link please. Does this program have a name?

It is the BCMS track. Tempting, I know.

EDIT: it is considered a post bac program, but its conditional acceptance to the med school is what makes it so unique--I don't think any other school has a comparable program (my girlfriend is in medical school...their TLS is "student doctor" hahaha

I am too. And in spite of Temple being an amazing med school with completely new everything (medical school, hospital, admin buildings...) it is in a gangster area so as a student you get to deal with GSWs and the like

But a "profession" implies compensation. The original hunter was not compensated by another member of his society for hunting. He killed his meat and ate it. The original ho got hungry, realized that she was not as good at hunting as the hunter, considered the skills she might have to acquire the hunter's meat, and offered them to the hunter in exchange for his food (currency) ...So she was indeed compensated for her work. :lol:

And I would join the Navy.

I grew up on a fruit orchard, so I would enter one of those programs where you get free room and board in exchange for your labor on family farms in Europe, preferably Italy.

But I believe the flaw in your argument is an unwarrented assumption. You could be a farmer by profession and only produce enough food to feed your family.

No assumption really, just a practical definition of profession. If the farmer took a job as an accountant, but still grew his own food, would he still be a professional farmer? If he built his house, would he be a professional carpenter too? If he fools around with the neighboring farmer's daughter every Friday, does that make him a professional sex worker/prostitute?

I'd make a pilgrimage to an ancient Shaolin temple, then learn kung fu to become the greatest warrior assassin in existence.
