Author's note: This offer comes to you from our friends at ComCast, and I almost didn't post it just to keep you fine folks from providing me with competition for what has to be one of the most amazing sounding job opportunities I've ever heard of. Short of providing you with a mansion and daily massages from a bevy of Swedish models, chances to be paid to do something don't get much better than this.
