It's a fine career. Every day, I come to work and solve
puzzles. And they pay me!

Hardly anybody chooses a career on whether it's healthy.
They mainly look for something they can make money at.

Quite a few avoid the careers that are unhealthy tho.

And some of us do what we like doing and sometimes some are happy
to pay us very well for doing what we would happily do for free.

Hmm, I picked my career because it's what I like to do.

Depends upon what you do with the rest of your time. You can
engage in active sports like biking, rock climbing, hiking,
etc. and stay in great shape.

Mine grew out of my hobby--computers. Now, I get paid to
pursue my hobby, and have lots of neat toys to play with,
which I don't have to pay for.
