A British paintball company says they were surprised by the number of applicants for a job post they put up. The company is looking for a ‘bullet tester’ with a ‘relatively high pain threshold’ and has received about 10,000 applicants. They are looking for a person willing to be shot at to ensure that each new batch of paint bullets the company produces meets all of their safety checks before they are released to the general public. Justin Toohig, owner of the company says the applicants include a man who said he would make a perfect target due to his large size as well as a former magician’s assistant who said he was almost shot for real when an illusion went wrong. Toohig added,’ we couldn’t have predicted that so many people in the U.K. and beyond would want to get shot for a living. It’s going to be a real struggle attempting to whittle down the thousands of applicants to just one.’—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell.

Romans 5:3-5 (HCSB) “And not only that, but we also rejoice in our afflictions, because we know that affliction produces endurance, (4) endurance produces proven character, and proven character produces hope. (5) This hope will not disappoint ⌊us⌋, because God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.”
