Guess I'm just boring - I can't think of anything that would be my 'dream job' as I find the very thought of routines and working for anyone (including myself) soul destroying!

My dream would be simply not to work at all and actually have time to do all the things I want to do and pick up all the things I've had to drop due to lack of time from working - start up my band again, continue with my martial arts, learn to sword fight (no, not fencing - sword fighting... theres a big difference), dedicate more time to working out, learn a couple of languages etc

The lists endless!

Heck yeah, there's a big difference.  Sword fighting is so much more FUN.  I can't stand fencing myself, but I do stunt swordfighting when I can...

*Applauds RogueJedi's taste*

I've lost count of how many arguments I've had with people over the differences between fencing and sword fighting!

In the future I'm just going to show them first hand the difference

If my claymore is too big for you Tony, how about my warhammer or perhaps the cutlass?

I've played around with replica hand axes before, they seem so more fluid and natural in my hands for me than swords - give me a battle axe in each hand and I'm ready to go!

*Shrugs*

Not that I'm planning on going into battle any time soon!

But my dear, you wouldn't be able to carry two battle axes.
They are a two handed weapon and were use as the claymore was more as a tool to smash skulls and bones, than to cut flesh

I wouldn't mind learning how to properly wielda sword... long, short, scimitar, or an axe (single hand axes and double bit battle axe), staff (including short spear).  For my height and build, I don't think I would want to wield, though I would be interested in learning, the larger swords and whatnot.

The claymore (the true type not the poncy pretendy ones in the films) are made to the length of the persons body who is to use it. They are frightening when you frist get hold of one, but it is a matter of practice. In reality, it didn't matter whether they have a sharp edge or blunt because you used to use them to beat your opponant to death, though if you were able to hit with the cutting edge, it could easily cleave a mans head in two or take off an arm by the shoulder.

Other swords had other uses.
The war hammer and battle axe basically stong and heavy enough to batter anyone in plate maile.
Short swords for stabbing, sabre mostly for cavilery use.......the list goes on.

Unfortunately I don't have the opertunity for 'real' weapons use now, so I resort to my huge array of larp safe weapons and beat people to 'death' with rubber and latex....

... What would it be???

Myself, at least at this moment in time, I would want a job working for Mythbusters.  These crazy guys and gals puts various myths to the test on the Discovery channel.  The build the most insane items to ut myths to the test, like the human sized slingshot they are building right now!

I would honestly have to say I have my dream job; well that is my dream job for the moment. I am a bartender at great nightclub and I love it. I am out almost every night, listening to great music meeting new and very drunk people who are all having a great time. I really couldn’t ask for anything more in a job at the moment.

 I wish I had a better body so I could work in escort service for awhile. Then do something else for awhile. As long as I enjoy myself, i'll be fine.

 As to swords and real weaponry......*looks at the Japanese calvery saber, the Spanish sword, the kris and other various sharp pointy instruments of death beside her bed*

 Well, right now I look more male than female, being in the beginning of the sex change. I do have small breasts (Yay! I love hormones  ;D), but I was a decent looking male, I will be a average looking (at best) woman. So far. That could change. There are not many where I live, that would want to go out with a T-girl.
