Sitting your ass in a comfortable or boring office, you probably think that if you work some backbone that you can and the strength of the egg to check and a lot of money to earn.
For example, we often think about how not to go us to study the habits of sharks or maybe go into politics… But before you quit your peace of mind, it would be necessary to know how much you can earn money, risking their lives than we do, and prepare you for some extreme and highly paid professions.
We headed for America, because in Russia the same work is often subject to much greater risk and certainly much less paid. And who need it, to risk it for a penny?
1. Stuntman movie
Potential profit: $100 thousand for the trick.
Like fellow film actors, stuntmen upscale high fees. The main stuntmen who make simple tricks, not risking much and earn not so much money. But the top stunt to make a multi-million dollar fortune, of course, in dollars.
Of course, a great chance that you yourself will not have time to spend your millions, but will leave a generous inheritance to relatives. Work with a high level of risk to life, after all.
2. Private military contractor
Profit potential: $300+ thousand a year.

A defense contractor may be hired by private companies working in dangerous military regions, or even sanctioned countries, trying to fill the military gaps.
3. NFL player
Potential profit: $40+ million a year.
We all know that players in the NFL earn good money (even a novice receives approximately $420,000 per year). And although no one died on the professional playing field over the last century (thankfully), constant risk of serious injury, including fatal, is present in every game and even during a workout.
In addition, the danger can lie in wait even ex-football players often develop the disease due to injury in their later life.
4. A working oil platform
Potential profit: $250+ thousand a year.
Highly skilled managers at the oil platform, oil-rig workers and consultants can certainly make a quarter of a million dollars a year and possibly more, depending on the situation. And even a novice can put in your pocket a six-figure amount per year (recall that in Russia, these amounts are negligible).
