Some people get a workout just by going to work. Here are six of the step-liveliest jobs, according to a study commissioned by the American Council on Exercise:
A convicted killer, 26-year-old Anthony Garcia, raked in more than $30,000 in unemployment benefits while he sat in the Los Angeles County jail! Garcia had family and friends cashing his $1,600-per-month checks while he served time and his accomplices would then deposit a portion of the money into Garcia's jail account and shared the cash with Garcia's fellow incarcerated gang members. Police arrested Garcia's father, 47-year-old Juan Garcia, and girlfriends 45-year-old Sandra Jaimez and 25-year-old Cynthia Limas on unemployment fraud and related charges. Capt. Mike Parker, spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said, "It's pretty appalling when you think about somebody sitting in jail collecting unemployment." Amazingly, Garcia was caught for murder after officers picked him up during a routine traffic stop on suspicion of driving with a suspended license and photographed him. Later, a detective familiar with an unsolved 2004 murder outside a Pico Rivera liquor store was flipping through photos and was stunned to see the crime scene tattooed in precise detail across Garcia's chest!

In Scotland, a teenager reluctant to clean up his bedroom is awfully glad he did. After being nagged by his mom, 19-year-old Ryan Kitching finally cleaned up his bedroom and in the process found 12 old lottery tickets in his drawer. He nearly threw them away but then decided to take them to a supermarket just to see if any were winners. You guessed it -- one ticket matched five numbers and won him over $50,000! Ryan said, "I am totally speechless-- it was the happiest day of my life easily." He added, "Next time my mom nags me to tidy my room I won't need telling twice."
