Two of the people that fascinate me the most are Steve Irwin and Jack Hanna. I don't see that many people around who are as passionate and enthused about their jobs as these two guys. Their personalities differ greatly from each other. Jack is a quiet, soft-spoken, laid-back oldie, while Steve is an in-your-face freak that you feel his words are racing his lips when he talks. In other words, Jack is a frequent on David Letterman, while Steve is a frequent on Conan. However, both share a great knowledge of wildlife and, more importantly, a passion to what they do.
How amazing is it to have this much fun on a daily basis, and call it a job? I'm sure we all have some degree of passion, if at all, to what we do, yet I think it's very hard to top these two guys. Such jobs would be ridiculed in our retarded, third-world societies. It's sad that people don't get the point of being passionate and doing what you'd love to do.
Side Joke: Jack was on Letterman last week and he showed him some weird monkey. He explained to Dave "this one lives upside down. It feeds upside down. It breeds upside down...," and Dave interrupted "sounds like my first wife" ... LOL! It's been a while since Dave made me laugh, but that one cracked me up for the next 30 minutes hehe.
