    I have a friend that owns his own business.

    He lives in Germany and uses a deep sea diving suit and inspects sewer systems
    in the big cities in Germany.

    I used to work at the San Diego Museum of Natural History. We had a bug box on the roof. It was big enough to put really big critters in. Nasty smelling.

    Me too. I worked on dead critters but I had to get rock off mine. Their days of smelling bad had long passed.

    Every bit of my 'prurient interest' wants more info; every bit of my common sense says: Don't ask.

    Indeed I have Mike; some folks do really odd things to make a living. Would watch the show and wonder 'How much do they pay that Guy/Gal to do that 5 days per week?'
