It does sound strange enough to be categorized as a job, but then many testers are employed to do so professionally. If it’s not you and me, somebody has got to do it!

For all of you who love commenting on the trolls and creating havoc, did you know that you can make a good living out of it? Though it may sound amusing but ‘Troll Wars’ are actually being waged against countries for defamation and humiliation. While being employed you are expected to post favorable comments on the suggested ones and humiliating comments on the rival trolls. So basically you would be paid well to fill in the comment boxes and carpet bomb the entire post. Now this is definitely interesting! This is what Russia does to America.

These are jobs for the people who care but this does sound a little freaky. While being an embalmer is not someone’s dream job and does not feature as a top listed job, but what would the dead do without the embalmers? Ever wondered who cleans the dead bodies, then drains blood out of them and then redresses them again? Closing any incisions made, pulling out air from the body, arranging the funeral – everything is done by the embalmer and they are mighty well paid for it too. Who says the dead are useless? Embalmers make money out of death and very respectably at that!

These people irrespective of their gender can give you a snuggly-cuggly feel for almost 90 minutes at a stretch.  So when you are not in a mood to sleep alone, or may be scared, or unwell with no close association around, just call a snuggler and snuggle off to sleep. While a snuggling session may comfortably last for 3 hours, overnight snugglers are also available. But here, you would have to carry your own snacks and entertainment. This has no element of prostitution into it and is plainly – warm snuggles!
