Arrogant bastards trying to "protect" humanity - they just think people are stupid, that's all. And those memory-flash things probably cause brain damage or some shit like that.
And don't forget - you can't have romantic relationships with fellow agents, nor can you have any kind of life outside work, and if you give a lifetime of adulthood to the agency, you're rewarded with the total loss of all those memories. Geez, couldn't they buy their retired agents a Caribbean pleasure island compound or something?

Which job is more hopeless: Loopers, or Men in Black? If you're a Looper, you have to quite literally kill yourself!

The world according to 24. An insane and utterly brutal place, packed with extremists and psychos, and often on the verge of some worldwide society-dissolving catastrophe. Not even the ability to drive anywhere in LA in moments would be worth that.

Seattle Grace Hospital (especially if you're a doctor)

Chances are high to get shot at, blown up, your heart broken, contract an STD, crash in a plane or drown. Worst working environment eva!

Yes. Superheroes' cities suffer damage that would rival 9/11 on a monthly basis.

Then again, the 24-verse counterpart of L.A. can apparently survive a nuclear explosion detonated in a nearby area with no lasting ill effects.

There is also Angel Grove which seems to suffer from destruction from massive multi-storey robots.
