The only reason I clicked the link was to see if my major on there. Which it usually is and it was, which is pretty much ... a joke.

Cops, elementary schoolteachers, and garbage men all outearn me, or should I say us.

This is from "Best Hairstyles", wonder what qualifies them to compile the data?
I would have to question the validity.

I don't think this website was created by anyone fluent in English. Or maybe it's a translation of a website in another language. Because some of it makes no sense. What kind of profession is "calculator mathematician"? Or "fossil oil engineer"? The latter, I guess is petroleum engineer. The former I have no idea.

Actuary science is what you're looking for.

Ah, that makes sense. Still, no native English speaker would call an actuary a "calculator mathematician".
