High paid jobs

Hello.

I am pretty bored and I'm wondering if anyone knows what the highest paid jobs in the world are? I've had a look on the internet, but different sites seem to contradict each other.

I remember hearing a story on the radio a while ago that said there was a job that paid several billion dollars a year, but I can't remember what job it was. All I remember is that it was a phyics-related job, and there was only about six people in the world that did it...

Any ideas?

Re: High paid jobs

CEO's get tens of millions, particularly if you consider stock options.

Actors: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highest-paid_actors

And then there are people who earn less than $10: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_single-digit_salary_earners

Re: High paid jobs

Physicists probably wouldn't get paid that much, no matter what they were researching, but they sure get paid a lot.

Bill has quite the paycheck, especially including stock.
