    And dman - I still want to fly an F-15E. It has to be an E.

    Nah, the chucks are where it's at.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    The E variants are also painted a darker color than the chucks. This is for obvious reasons as the F-15C is an air superiority fighter and the F-15E has a ground attack role.

    Oh, and right now I'm also an engineer in training / intel analyst.

    A Cincinnati Reds baseball player of course.

    I'm still deciding on what I will be. Anyone know of a high paying job that pays you to sit and watch TV/read Redzone all day?

    I hope to somehow get a job in baseball someday. Any type of baseball job would be great whether it be a groundskeeper or a scout.

    Rock n' roll star.

    Rock n' roll burnout.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    I wanted to be a fireman, cop, or astronaut.

    I ended up in advertising.
    Makes all the routine posts.

    I feel embarrassed for myself on the irony of this question, but what exactly is an intelligence analyst?
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Have you ever found any? Must be like the Maytag repairman, waiting for an appliance to break down.

    If I throw out the baseball player, I would say I wanted to be an engineer/architect.

    I became an engineer, but then I went to grad school and feel more like a mathematician than engineer.
