Best Jobs in America - Time to call your parents!

I just saw Money Magazine's article on the Best Jobs in America. It's actually quite interesting to look at it. Some things hit home for me.

Number one job was Software Engineer and number two was College Professor. It's interesting because I used to be both of these and I moved on. I'm not sure what to make of that. And, it completely contradicts what seems to be the trend around Computer Science: Computer Science Dying in the US?

Some rankings relative to the world of learning:

13 - Technical writer
18 - Curriculum developer - Wow, pretty cool that this is listed and that it ranks this high.

Consider some jobs that rank below this:

30 - Physician/Surgeon
37 - Lawyer
43 - Dentist
44 - Accountant

Time to call your parents to let them know. Of course, I won't be telling them what ranked number 1 & 2.

In what way are they the best jobs?
Surely Racing driver, professional basketball player, model, property developer are all better jobs than software engineer and college professor.
I'd be really interested to know how they formed this list.
