There are so many:

* You get to enjoy working in the nature.
* Simple pure life style
* Nothink like those evil jobs with slave-like hours and deadlines hampered by the boss
* You actaully help humanity to reduce bad zombyish addictions related to over technologiism.
* What Mehdi Golam stated in the post a couple of lines below...
* and the list goes on

Oh ... wait ... it's not the right poll is it?

The trouble with people,
is that they want to hear only what they want to hear.
