I want this guy's job


Popular Science has an article this month about Chuck Cramer, a man who works for Underwriters Laboratories doing product testing, and I want his job.

Ok, maybe not seriously, but I wouldn't mind filling in for a few weeks if he needs to take a sabbatical.

Chuck gets to blow things up, drop them off tables and fire projectiles at them, all in the name of keeping America safe.

He doesn't work for homeland security, but you can think of Chuck every time you see the little UL sticker or logo on something. He's part of the team that makes sure that products don't cause unexpected dangers.
