I've seen several people whose job title includes "Evangelist," implying that what they get paid to do is be enthusiastic about things.
That sounded like a cushy job, but I'm really not that good at enthusiasm -- my talents lie much more in the other direction.
So I'm wondering now if there's any company who wants to hire an Anti-Evangelist, a guy who explains why every new idea is horrible and won't work -- I'd be great at it!
(If this were 2000 years ago, I could get the gig to tell Julius "Remember, Caesar, thou art mortal." That would be right up my alley.)
