Can you imagine the fearlessness you need to be a high voltage electrical worker? Or THAT guy that has to go inside an industrial grinder to clean it hoping a coworker with a grudge is no where near the switch? Or a toll booth worker on a busy bridge who has to go potty during rush hour! Yes, we go to dark places in our mind as Discovery, the network home to religious zealots, fatties, sex freaks, scientific wonders, crab catchers, Alaskans doing things and Little People brings us… the most dangerous jobs on Earth.
