I'd like to be Director General of the BBC, with a mandate to purge the organisation of undesirables, and a completely free hand to reform programing and broadcasting.

It would be a cross between a cultural revolution and a cultural renaissance.
So what would be your No.1 show to bring back / reimagine?

I'd put the entire catalogue of old films and tv shows online (click to recommend). If a show gets enough recommends - it goes on air.

Personally, I'd start by rerunning Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and Smiley's People.

Zulu and Zulu Dawn would be shown every Boxing Day... By official decree.

Surely Zulu Dawn and then Zulu....

Zulu was on one of the sky movies channels yesterday, it's shown approx four times every two months, I know because when I am in and it's on I watch it.

We could put them in a kind of online library, where people could select the film's they wanted to watch at any time without waiting until a broadcaster schedules it.

Why did nobody think of that before?

It's a revolutionary idea. I'll have to look into when I get the hang of this internet thing...

I'm honestly not trying to come across as kooky and weird, but in a perfect world I can't imagine a more satisfying job than being an audiologist specialising in earwax removal. Being surrounded by the kind of stuff below every working day (smell included) would genuinely mean that I'd have to avoid wearing tight trousers....

You're quite weird but I think I understand.

Had a full on ear infection some years back that required a visit to A&E. The Doc took took one look in my ear, muttered something that indicated mild shock & disbelief and got me hoofed straight to the ear specialist.
Perforated eardrum and untold quantities of gacky earwax and detritus.

I had two sessions with the ear hoover and it was one of the sexiest experiences ever, better than a "happy endings" massage . . . . . I guess.;)
Thankfully the lady doing it was dog dick ugly so it kept me in a state of equilibrium.

The dental hygienist is a close second.
I think I may be a prevert.

You‘re the second person I’ve come across that has described it as an erotic experience.

It makes one feel not so alone hearing that.
I wouldn't describe it as a fetish, I'm not infecting my ears for kicks but it was rather . . . . pleasant.

I know that this is cliched, but I really did want to be either a train driver or a pilot.

I grew up in the tail end of the steam era and early diesels, Class 40s, 44s, 45s etc plus Canberras, Hunters, Javelins & the mighty Lightning.

Unfortunately, dodgy eyesight in my teenage years ruled me out of being a pilot completely at the first hurdle ... there are loads of places for Navigators, Radar Officers etc ... No, I want to be a PILOT!!!

ETA that I passed the maths tests, co-ordination tests, colour blindness, depth of field perception etc etc, but at that time was short sighted in one eye even though with glasses I had better than 20:20 vision. These days with contact lenses, I still have 20:15 vision.

The train driver stuff went by the board due to to the same thing. There were so many applicants that anyone with less than perfect eyesight got eliminated at the first hurdle. Oddly, if you qualified as a driver and then needed glasses you were allowed to keep working.

B'stards.
Back in the early to mid 90's l dreamt of being a Tornado GR 1 Pilot (due to watching all the news coverage of Operation Granby).
I had absolutely no chance in real life though being non-academic (thick) and being an Amblyopia sufferer.

If this is allowed......

To be as good a Tennis Player as Roger Federer.

He has it all, easily one of the finest Tennis Players ever, multi, multi millionaire, gets to travel the world all the while doing something he loves.
 
If I didn't have to earn what I do to satisfy wife, kids, bank manager etc, I would love to build guitars, amps and effects pedals.

That's right now, but in the future when the kids have flown the nest, the wife's earning more, maybe you can go part time with your 'proper job' and fill the gap with your side hustle?

I'm in that position now. It's okay. I thought it would be better, and I'm packed with work from my side hustle (event photography; mostly sporting events).

But now the novelty of being paid to do my hobby has worn off, it sometimes feels like work, tbh.
