Which in turn brings to mind when I'd tell people (sadly true) that my job is "part teacher and part detective, but with less chance of facing live bullets.  Being a detective probably has its drawbacks, too."

Just a comment on the Star Trek librarian question. If you take a look 
at Memory Alpha, the Star Trek wiki, there's an intriguing excerpt from 
the Star Trek *cartoon*: 

"After being captured on Delta Theta III, James T. Kirk remarked that 
"There are times, Mr. Spock, when I think I should have been a 
librarian." Spock observed that "The job of librarian would be no less 
challenging, captain, but it would undoubtedly be a lot less dangerous."
