Answer:
Best profession for me: Retired (with all associated and needed money) - OR
Private Service Butler: Ooops... That is what I do for a profession

PS: I'm a retired telecom/network design engineer.

@wootfast: Yes. Yes it is. Only $20,000,000/seat and you're rather limited on luggage.

my dream job would be the oil boy on the tropicana bikini team.
Travel the world see exotic locations and be around all those hot women and rubbing suntan lotion all over those hot and sexy tanned bodies.

My dream job is what everyone dreams of, working for Woot!

I'd own my own restaurant. I'd need to be rich first, though, because it would be a money pit. I wouldn't run the business side well and I'd cook people what I wanted them to eat. "No onions?", "well-done filet?" pshaw...

Being a grad student is actually a pretty cushy job: the hours are flexible, you don't have to find your own funding, you get to play with expensive machines, and you're essentially getting paid to learn.

I wanna be a professional driver. Like the Transporter.
Or a real race car driver, sorry not Nascar, but Formula or Rally, something intense and always changing.
I keep practicing but the local 5-0's don't appreciate that much.

I'd want to travel the world and write for a travel company - maybe someone like Frommers, Fodor's or something along those lines...

I love culture and people; I want to see the world before we ruin it

I'm a dilettante, so it's hard for me to choose.

Possibilities:

1) B-movie star (I've always enjoyed working in B movies, but never been big in them)
2) Owner of a small, local pub somewhere in rural County Cork
3) Sheep farmer in Scotland
4) Scotch Whisky distiller
5) Personal shopper for someone exceedingly rich (I love buying things... I just don't always have the budget for it)
6) Bluegrass fiddle player

Well the good news is I have jobs for most of you at Crazy Dave's TechnoWaffle Emporium, the bad news is that you'll have to wait on @dcalotta to win to provide the startup capital.

I'm pretty psyched that we'll have the right mix of people to move forward with the 'Dancing With The Great White Sharks' division and as long as @loosecannon67 is willing to attach lasers to their heads that will synergise well with World Domination and Maple Syrup' Division

For people who said they had their dream jobs - would love to hear what it was...

Also, mine is owner/operator of a brewery that becomes either nationally or at least regionally recognized--> e.g. magic hat, blue moon, ommegang, yuengling.

Chief Information Officer ;)

A blogger/tech writer who describes new tech products, appraises them, and compares them to each other, in great detail and precision. Better yet, I'd run a site/company that did that and employed a bunch of other people who did it too, since I'd love to run something and manage people (I love being team leader). Think CNET or engadget. People could also hire us to make the tech decisions for them and totally rig out their houses, including home theaters, routers, etc (not so much appliances, but we wouldn't say no to that). So, Engadget with a bit of the Geek Squad thrown in. But it would also be serious too, like advising local and federal government on technology policy (e.g. whether city-wide wi-fi makes sense, and how to do it most effectively and cheaply). Which is kind of like rigging out someone's house, just on a much larger scale.

... or I could be a lawyer. Yeah, I could do that, too.

I'd like to be a professional Mega Millions/Powerball winner.

I'm expecting that for the most part, the premise of this question implies sufficient fiscal assets to remove that portion of the decision. So, barring the aforementioned profession, probably something military. I wanted to fly fighters when I was a kid, perhaps these days I'd try one of the Special Operations services.

talent agent because you get to travle and are required to go out to events.

or my on show on food network kinda like bizarre foods :)

@chris12345: Retired is good. I'm glad that I'd thought about it ahead of time, though. I have a friend who retired (because he'd come into some money) at an age where the fire is still in the belly of most of us. I think he regrets it now. I've worked with many people who failed miserably at being retired, either because they were unwise with their money, or because they didn't have interests that would occupy their days.

I like it, but sometimes I'd like to abandon it, at least for a while.

To return to the original question, though... I've already had my dream job.

Not quite a 'job', but I don't think I'd mind being retired.

@chaosamoeba: Now that you mention it, I think I would like to work for Ikea as an assembler. I come with the products delivered to their homes and assemble them for them. I love putting things together.

For the time being, I think it would be carpenter. An independently-wealthy carpenter. I also like @tygerdave's making waffles.

I like making tangible things with my hands... oddly, I always find work that makes me sit in front of computers writing documents. Time for me to go write that progress report now. :(

I think being a novelist would be up there. I love to read, but hate editing (that's why not an editor). I have some crazy fantasies that I would like to write down into a novel, but can't find the time nor the words to do it.

Catching and tagging Great White Sharks around the world. Seriously, I have watched shark week on Discovery since it started and my new favorite show is Expedition Great White on National Geographic. So I guess you could say A) Boat captain B) Marine Biologist C)Sport Fisherman(catch and release only).

I waffle between two:

1) Owning my own business, tech consulting, programming, making waffles...
2) Corporate blogger / product tester for Sealy Posturepedic

I plan to retire into work at a national or state park giving hay ride tours where I get to use the same cheesy jokes over and over for cheap laughs.
