1) Assassin- Maybe if he worked for the CIA, but we all know the CIA does some immoral sh*t and I can't see Stan doing too much of it.
2) Animator/ Voice-actor- I see this. It would allow him to have fun and do something creative.
3) Entrepreneur- I've always seen Stan as an able businessman.
4) Military officer- Sense of patriorism+Leadership+Underlying violent side=badass officer.
5) Singer- I agree, he'd make a fine singer. If he was a singer hoever, it'd be more of the rap variety as he did say R&B was his favorite style.
6) F.B.I. official- Defending the people, making a decent paycheck and being able to wear sunglasses? Yeah, Stan's bag.
7) Criminal mastermind- Nah. His sense of morality would drive him away from, not to, this field.
8) Scientist- I can see this, though not very well. He's not the scientist type. That's more Kyle's role.
9) Writer- Very creative and would allow him to be his own boss. Perfect for him.
10) UN AID worker- He loves to help people and I bet he'd love to see the world.
That's how it's down here on the farm!

I don't know if this has been brought up before but I can see him hosting a daytime talk show.

He did great on Biggest Douche In The Universe.

I could see that, but it'd have to be high quality. I don't see Stan being one with idiocy or...idiocy.

I've often thought of Kyle as becoming a lawyer in later life. That or a politician. Randy is a scientist, yet Stan is clearly smarter than him, so I wouldn't rule it out either.
Cartman might become a criminal mastermind. Or at least a criminal, anyhow. Kenny could be a gigolo, a pimp, or perhaps, a director of porn movies. Butters may become an accountant, or some middle-management type.

I can imagine that one day Stan and Kyle will make their own TV show, called East City, and Stan will voice a little boy named Trey.

No, um, I doubt being a singer would work out well at all, unless he had someone else write his lyrics for him. His lyrics were terrible.

And I can't imagine Stan being in any undercover service, either. He gets pretty upset when stuff dies.

If Stan hosted a daytime talk show, it would be just like with Brian (Griffin): He started out trying to make the show intellectual and stuff, and later succumbed and just made everything funny and entertaining.

Mm. Stan should be a starship captain (I'm joking). The job is adventurous, active, and you don't have to kill too much stuff.

The song from "Smug Alert" wasn't the only one he ever sung. And those had more varied lyrics.

Having once shot Scuzzlebutt dead, butchered some zombies in "Pinkeye", witnessed Kenny's many deaths, and saw some gangsters stupidly/accidentally slay each other in "Lil Crime Stoppers", I doubt that would prevent him from seeking a career in the clandestine services.

He could be a Rhode's Scholar. Thats somewhat adventurous, but doesn't necessarily involve death and danger.

^ I know that. However, it was the only song he ever wrote lyrics to, unless he wrote songs for Moop. But those songs sucked too.

Stan didn't want to shoot all the animals that came before Scuzzlebutt, he actually was reluctant about killing the Wendy-zombie, and nobody on the show cares about Kenny's deaths, so you can't really count that. And he didn't kill anything in "Li'l Crime Stoppers", or, for that matter, any of the times Kenny died. Stop going off-track.

...Yes, maybe...

1- He is nine, so writing isn't what you look for. It is around this age that a kid's voice first starts to have it's flow. So at this point, noting his voice as being worthy is more important than his lyrical ability.

2-Lemme say again: He is nine. Most people in the military haven't killed anything at the age of nine. We're never seen him around ants, maybe he does what I did: Massacre them. Besides that, we discussed in another thread the reasons why he many be capable of extreme violence.

Heh, Kenny and Cartman didn't have that problem... but whatever, you're probably right.

I still think starship captain would be the ideal job (I'm still joking). Anybody got anything to say about that?

Kenny sang classical songs. He didn't write them.
Cartman only replaced Jesus with words like baby. He didn't write the songs in full.:P

Starship Captain: I could see that. Brave, good leader, and adventerous.

^ I already said this to you on MSN, but I should probably say it here as well: I was referring to how Kenny and Cartman don't have problems with killing, not about how they may or may not have problems writing song lyrics. I'm sorry about being confusing, but I didn't really think that it was at the time.

Perhaps time will tell with his lyrical ability. He is only eight/nine. Over time he may fill that hole in his musical repertoire. By than, the notion of having someone else write his music would a redundant one.

All I'm saying is that Stan is no stranger to violence. While he may have had qualms against killing some harmless animals, he still killed Scuzzlebutt, as misguided as that was. While he was in love with Wendy at the time, which was enough to stay his hand, he still had no compunction in dismembering dozens of other zombies, if only to preserve his and his friends lives. He will use force should the need arise. Also, I never said he killed anyone in "Li'l Crime Stoppers", only he was never disturbed or put off by their deaths. And in regard to Kenny, if you've seen one death , you've seen them all. All those deaths would desensitize anyone thats witnessed them. So you understand, He might not have such problems in later life.

And don't take this personally, I'm not trying to be a dick here, but I really wish people would pay attention to what I'm saying before responding. If I've got to underline every key phrase in a sentence than I will.

And Stan might become a.......physician. Why? Why not, just trying to stay on topic.

Actually, I've just remembered that Stan wrote lyrics for a song performed by Elton John in "Chef Aid" waaaay back in season two. Though Elton was quick to take credit for everything including the lyrics.

I actually said that "Li'l Crime Stoppers" and the Kenny-deaths were irrelevant to the point I brought up (that point being how Stan had problems with actually killing stuff) because Stan did not kill anything in those cases. What I was trying to say was that Stan has or has had problems with causing death to stuff, not just witnessing death.

And I did pay attention to what you said before responding. Let's just end this argument. We're in some sort of Catch-22 thing, or something. Take your last jab at me, and I'll stop.

Anyways, you're probably right, Stan had no problems with killing the zombies, so... he just has problems with killing stuff that doesn't provoke him. He could probably be in the military, if he wanted to.

Elton John wrote the lyrics. Stan asked him to do so earlier in the episode. :tp:
