Sometimes you just can’t make up this stuff.  The Australian government is looking for a Tardis Operator.  Unfortunately, the government is only paying $65K a year on the low end; I guess the perks of traveling through time and space make up for the chump change salary.  Nowhere in the job description does it say anything about having to be a young cute female, or having to deal with Daleks on a regular basis.  Damn Daleks.

Thanks for the link Hercules!

    Damn, another reason to move down there…

    And this time it doesn’t directly involve someone of the female persuasion.

    Y’all can’t read… Not the operator… The MANAGER. I suspect responsibilities include maintaining the TARDIS — keeping it fueled, polished, that sort of stuff — as well as recruiting cohorts for the current Dr., and also scheduling duties. You’ve got to make sure that only one Dr. is using the thing at a time, and I bet some of the older doctors get cranky about having to wait their turns… Anyway, when you realize the position is in management, the salary seems to fit the scale. ;)

    But seriously, I wonder what the TARDIS acronym is used for in this case…? Hmmm.. Google, here I come.

    Do I get the job? What if I throw in a life sized puzzle of a former 30th century hero killed by a crazy pirate?
