And police/SWAT? Glad to see that you've decided generalizing was a bad idea.

Yeah, I guess some people see the "problem solving" aspect in things and find it challenging and/or rewarding regardless of whether it's boring old "working with people" or not.

Of course I think people used to find the law pretty dry as well, yet I'm pretty sure there's some flavor of Law & Order on every moment of every day.
