Is "hard" the same as "life threatening"?

Fact is, I don't think my job is hard. I think it's easy because I enjoy
doing it and do it well. It would be hard for someone else, perhaps. But
it pays what it pays not because it's easy or hard, but because it has
value to the person paying for it. Frankly, people who get shot at for a
living aren't paid enough, but that has nothing to do with how *I'm*
paid. It's not a contest.

~Bio-physiology, now _that's_ hard.
