Such a wealth of possibilities: Where to begin?

OK, we’ll start with what sounds like a dream job. According to CNN, BonusFinder, a casino review portal,  has announced it will pay $500 to someone willing to become a “professional cheeseburger tester.” The person who is deemed right for the job will travel the U.S. to find the best cheeseburger in the land. To apply, complete the form on this page, which asks for your name, email, and a written description of why you’d be the ultimate “Cheeseburger Tester.” Entrants need to be 21 years old and a resident of the United States or Canada.

So, is it all a scam to add your email to a database that will send you spam till the day you die? Look, do you want to be a professional cheeseburger tester or don’t you?
