You pretty much expect to get shot to death if you’re dealing drugs, but there are also a number of the deadliest jobs any man can have that are not illegal. You might expect police officer, fire fighter and skyscraper window washer to make the deadliest cut, but there are other jobs out there that actually have a higher rate of fatality. An average of twelve people die on the job every day, according the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and that’s not counting the ones who perish from absolute cubicle boredom. These are legal jobs that get you out and about on mini-adventures. Going for such a deadly job could really be a turn-on for the ladies, although you might not be around very long to enjoy their sweet attention.
Crab catchers and their ilk. We’re not talking crab catching along the lines of being a gigolo and going for every venereal disease—although that, too, could be one of the dealiest jobs—but guys who make living catching fish. Drowning, being trapped in fishing nets, and getting clawed in the eyeball are just some of the dangers that gives this job a fatality rate of 116 per 100,000 workers, according to CNBC.com.
Loggers. Being like Paul Bunyan with his giant ox might get you giddy with excitement, but it could instead land you in an early grave. Who would take care of your ox? Logging qualifies as one of the deadliest jobs thanks to heavy equipment, heavier falling trees and crappy weather. Their fatality rate ranks at nearly 92 per 100,000 Bunyan wanna-bes.
