        This is not a dis on Rowe. I will say this...The biting off of lamb nuts is an old tried and true method that was used when the tools we have today weren't available. It works. So does a sharp knife. People do this stuff every day and it's not weird or gross. I showed this video to my in laws and it was like they were watching a stand up comedian. Get 'woke' folks!

                  Mike Rowe is a huge inspiration to me. I hope I can make a career out of pretending to be a hard worker like he has.

                        I am an engineer. I have done, and do, things that most people find horrifying. I loved the old Dirty Job show, as I did so many of them. He nails it here.

                              And in a fascinating epilogue, Mike did try in that moment of clarity to describe for the sheep farmers his newly-found insights into anagnorisis and peripeteia. But all they were able to make out was , "Mumble mumble mumble, mumble mumble!"

                                Mike I have so much respect for you. When I was in FFA in high school the worst thing I saw was dehorning cattle . Have you ever seen that ? Most farmers now just breed polled livestock rather than do that.

                                  I work at as a School Cleaner. I get to exercise a lot just by working, gets to chat with the student and getting complimented by the other employees.

                                        No, we waged war on working for other people that are massively profiting at our expense, but we did what we always do with injustice: we overcompensated and said work is bullshit period. When you work for yourself, or with a community for mutual benefit, and you work as hard as you can, it is immensely satisfying.

                                                      Hairdresser here, I spent my first few years after highschool in college for Accounting. Absolutely despised it, I hated going to college. I decided to do something I thought would be interesting for myself, hairdressing. It was a big risk as I grew up in an Asian family who valued education over most things. Ten years later, one of the best decisions of my life, I'm making more money than if I stuck with accounting with no debts to pay. It's very reassuring to know that my skills and knowledge will always be wanted no matter where I go. Point is, don't let social pressure force you into college or university. It is not worth it; the only thing I regret is not having someone tell me this when I was younger.

                                                        Mike Rowe is a genius and so prophetic. Where are we now? The jobs he talks about are now the most highly paid in the country. I went to college 45 years ago, got a good paying administrative job and retired. If I were to do it all again now, I would save the four years of college, take on a trade, teach others, likely be a millionaire and have skipped the comparitvely tiny loan I had to take in 1977!

                                                        He’s a “National Treasure”, indeed. “Somebody has to do it”

He is not a blue collar worker, he is a well educated person who makes his living educating the public on what a blue collar worker is and how he lives. I applaud Mike for what he has done in bringing some of the most disgusting jobs people could possibly do to the limelight.

The professor teaching the class said if you’ve never done this you have to bite them off. We weren’t in the class but I said, “I’ll do it if you do!” So we both bit some off. Mmm salty. Mike also came to our college to film our cow with the hole in her belly so you can take the rubber plug out and look inside of her. He also came and shot an episode with graduate student who was researching dung beetles.

These days I'm the director of operations for a roofing company and make a six-figure income. My wonderful wife was blessed with a good education and finished seven years of college. She makes half the income I do and has about $100,000 in student debt. She has repeatedly said that I made much better choices than she did. Food for thought.
