15 of the Weirdest Jobs We’ve Ever Heard Of

World's Longest Waterslide Opens Outside Auckland

Water Slide Tester

Now while this job is random, I would say that it’ probably one of the best possible professions on this list. Could you imagine getting paid to just go down water slides? That’s literally a 10-year-old kid’s fantasy, and real, actual people are living it. Sure, when a new slide opens that’s supposed to be the tallest in the world or something, it might be a little scary, a little dangerous. But come on. Everyone knows that the pros outweigh the cons here.
