I decided to steal H0urg1ass's thread and twist it slightly. I was thinking about there's lots of threads about 'What would you be if you were in 40k?' and everyone seems to post 'Tank Commander' or 'Assassin' and such....but how many people that play 40k are actually in the military? Sure there's people who play who are in the army, but the overwhelming majority aren't, and if they aren't in this universe, why would they be in that one? So I decided make a 'Reality Check' thread, where people post what they would like to be in 40k, and then take a reality check by posting their 40k job equivalent. For an example I'll do me.
Ideal role in 40k: I'd probably want to be a Space Marine Chaplain, brooding massive figures with black armour who give sermons to the men on how war is religion. Sounds cool, and you get a Crozius to beat people with, and a personal energy shield.
Reality Check: I'm currently a Zoology student, so if I was in 40k I'd probably be a junior Magos Biologis of the Adeptus Mechanicus....quite a difference eh?
There's plenty of scope for comparison:
Teacher = Schola Progenum
Secretary = Administratum Clerk
Policeman = Adeptus Arbites
Factory Worker = Manufactorum worker
Accountant = Savant/Scribe
Mc Donalds worker = Servitor :p
I'd like to say I'd be a Rogue Trader or Space Pirate. Darting about the universe with a band of rutheless hooligans, looting and pillaging and generaly being a nuisance. Living a life of adventure and exitment. In reality I'd probably be a farmer on some backwoods agri planet, or a desk jockey working some meaningless low level Administratum job, like an Arbite Precinct Secretary or something. My short pointless life would probably end up with my head mounted on an Ork bannerpole, or floating around in some Tyranid's intestine. I can only hope that my planet gets invaded and I go out being ravaged by Daemonettes or Dark Eldar woman...oh to dream...
Statistically I'd probably be hive scum or a mutant or something. Seriously.

Well since I'm a game tester and I just test for bugs all day. I guess you could place
me as a astronimican network hacker. Job details would include, breaking into alien networks
and stealing data, contacting mercenaries to gain data chips, Also, I'd guide pilots through
warp travel and do all that jazz as required in the astronimican astartes.

"What can I say, I'm a repoholic. Just can't get enough of that repohol."
I want everyone to remeber why they need us!
Hmm...I'd have to be some kind of telekinetic sorcerer, so a Chaos sorcerer, or maybe a librarium.
In real life, my part-time job, I have to survey people, so i guess i'd be low-level administratum.
"How would you rate the astronomicon service in this area? Very good, good, fair, poor or very poor?"
"I'm afraid it's very poor."
"Boys - you're on!"
*Shotgun blasts from the shadows. Steps over body*
"Excuse me sir, how would you rate the astronomicon..."

The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.
"War does not determine who is right - only who is left."
Ok this is cool.
I would want to be a Tau Stealth suit operator. I would be sleek and frickin awesome.
In real life, I am a mediocre highschool student. No potential here.......I'm a raw Imperial Guard recruit who gets torn apart by a tyranid in his first battle.
