    I found the salary distribution of this list interesting. Social science occupations were in the 50 - 65 range and wall street types were in the 125 - 150 range. At least we are ahead of LAWYERS!

    Not sure what passes as 'stressful' according to those ratings or even how they measured it but I have to believe planning is more stressful than many of the other jobs listed (both higher and lower rated)
