The thing about technical experts in filth reminded me of something I've wondered for a long time.
Form 1040 (which is the principal individual tax reporting form in the U.S.) has a space at the bottom for “Your occupation”. I usually fill in “computer programmer”.
But what does Alex Rodriguez put there? Does he write “shortstop”? (Or, now, “retired shortstop”?) Or something less specific?
If I were a shortstop, I would definitely want to hand out business cards that said “shortstop”.
