The Worst Jobs in Science

Popular Science has a list of the "10 worst jobs in science", reprinted in USA Today.
Feces piper: Some hospitals perform controversial "fecal transplants," which involve feeding fecal matter through a tube from a healthy person into a person infected with the C. difficile bacteria to fight the bacteria.
