I'd consider it if I was unmarried and about 5 years younger. I'm sure boredom would be an issue at times, but I wouldn't mind looking at the night sky there, and experiencing one of the few remaining places relatively unspoiled by humankind.

the south pole runs on linux -- good for them; maybe the penguin being the mascot for linux helped?

I could handle 12 months in the tropics better than 12 months in cold storage.

Look for a Zika or Malaria research job.

I wonder if Ambassador to Tahiti is available. After all, Trump is having trouble filling vacancies.

Having a penguin always helps, no matter what.

Americans continue to quit their jobs in droves
https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/amer ... 10503.html

"In September, 3.6 million people quit their jobs, just below the record high 3.65 million job quitters we saw in August. The overall quits rate for the private sector in September held at 2.4% for the third month in a row, matching a 17-year high.

Quits are seen a positive economic indicator, with the thinking being that folks won’t leave a job unless they are reasonably confident they could easily get another one. With the unemployment rate currently at 3.7% and the economy continuing to create in excess of 200,000 jobs per month, the headline data about the labor market suggests things are very good for American workers right now. The quits data add more depth to that assertion.
Looking below the headline quits numbers and the picture gets even better. And portends more wage growth.

...And if you track non-supervisory wage growth alongside the quits rate in the food services business, you get a pretty good sense of where wages are going — up. In October, average hourly earnings for all employees rose 3.1% and for non-supervisory workers wages rose 3.2% over last year. These were the highest readings since the spring of 2009, when wages were on the way down as the post-crisis recession deepened.

For years, economists have said that wage growth was the missing element of the post-crisis recovery. But now, wage growth appears to be here. The question then is, what’s next?"

Inflation. It's how the government and the rich take the money back.

Local job market doesn't look so good to me based on these:
