Some of the weirdest occupations on the planet can be found right in our backyards. For every golf course near our homes, for example, there might be someone diving in its ponds searching for golf balls. Some people even collect snake venom or teach dogs how to surf! Curious readers get to explore the many odd jobs that dot the American landscape through colorful photographs and graphics that highlight some of the strangest things people do for a living.
