27, 28, 29, ?

My brother was reading an article on CareerBuilder's website titled "30 jobs that pay $30 per hour," and something didn't compute, so he sent a link my way. Thanks, Paul!

Anthropologists, with an hourly wage of $30.81, topped the list. Here is a sampling of other careers listed:

  9. Budget analyst
12. Statistician
16. Police detective

Can we hire No. 16? Someone has committed a petty crime. Why is the final entry in the list, "fashion designer," numbered 20? It's right there in the title: 30 jobs. Twenty-eight, twenty-nine, thirty. Any No. 9 math whiz or number-crunching No. 12 knows that.

I wonder if CareerBuilder would pay me $30 an hour to make sure all its numbered lists are in order, literally and figuratively. The website could count on me. That task would be as easy as 1, 2, 4.
