I like watching paint dry as much as the next guy. Except, apparently, not as much as this guy:
This guy is Keith Jackson–a man who literally watches paint dry for a living.
With stopwatch and clipboard, he’s an anomaly. A juxtaposition. Part-scientist, part-layman. A joke.
But he’s not poor.
Rather, in the last 30 years, without any formal education, Jackson has somehow landed in the upper-middle income bracket by watching fresh paint harden on concrete–granted, he does it with a white lab coat and a professional title.
His title: “Technical Manager” for AquaTec Coatings, a London-based company who paints, among other things, the walls and floors of the London Underground.
