As a non-programmer, you actually have to worry about your looks. I'd opt for the operation from which I'd wake up as a girl with pointy black hair. I'd plan to pay back the medical bills within three to five months by attending bars and reselling generously offered free drinks, then simply cover my expenses and save up for a holiday. Really, it's so much easier being a girl.

Programming Html
That should be still related. And there is not phrase such as "Programming Html". I accept "scripting" though.

Saboteur. It appeals to my pyro side.

You know if people consider going into criminality its usually hitman, bank robber or simply organized crime. But Saboteur... even the job title just oozes cool. Its a very overlooked thing to be.

who says it has to be criminal? the government might want North Korea's nuclear program to unexpectedly launch itself into the silo door...
or maybe more Iranian centrifuges need to explode...

if it were criminality, i'd be Michael Westen

One can argue that governments are criminal by default, but lets not get TOO far off-topic Wink

Another good question would be: what do you want to do when you are at 50? Do you want to still be a programmer? I'm 37 and have been programming over 20 years. Man, I'm tired of this. Working as a programmer will get you mad sometime in the future... I'd like to make programs/games just for fun and not to earn money.

Computer science is very volatile. When you learn something, the stuff is already old and this is very disappointing...

Answering the original question, I would be a pianist, for sure!

Go for it. They say it only takes 15 minutes of writing a day to write a book in a year.(Cliche)

I will still be. No, actually I really wonder how programming ecosystem looks like 30y from now.

However that may turn into hobby only, not a real job (dunno if my back and neck can hold until 50 Tongue).

If we're talking about being retired from one's profession/occupation/career... then that's a pretty cool thing to strive for upon hitting 50 if it's brought about by the lack of need to work due to being financially independent enough. I see it as an opportunity to spend more time with family and pursue other interests full-time without having to worry about earning money.

But if we're talking about just idling around the house and sleeping, eating, watching TV and doing a lot of nothing... then I agree that's definitely boring and mind-numbing.

Probably not... I have some collegues here that are around 60 and still developing... they need the job because of the insurance and all other benefits that they will loose when retire.

God, I missed some replies but...

Yeah... that was the joke...

<edit>
I love this thread.
Totally!
The different phases of this thread:
1. Bringing up examples:
    The examples start being serious and end in nonsense like 'A girl' or 'Dead'...
2. Discussion phase:
    Big discussions start to form out of very deep questions like 'What will you do, when you're 50?' or 'Why is being a girl better, or why not?' or 'What am I doing wrong, if I'm 50 and don't like programming anymore?'... Yeah, some of those questions and answers aren't 100% serious, though Smiley
3. Dumb idiot starts interpreting something out of a thread makes useless theses+
...

Anyway, an adjustment to my answer:
