There’s a man working at Six Flags Over Georgia in Austell, who claims to have the best job in North America. Who could pass up an opportunity to find out why? Not us! And it turns out there are a lot of amazing jobs in this place. For example, they actually have jobs riding rides! And if you want to set yourself up for a job like this, it’ll help to learn some science. You’ll find out why.
