I stand in front of groups of people and talk while they don't listen. Then I measure how much they didn't listen.

When I'm not doing that, I do obscure things with expensive equipment and publish the results in papers that no one reads.

Thank you!  Now I just hope lilfox comes back...

Quoth Lilfox:
I deliberately disadvantage some people and give others undeserved advantages.  Then I watch what happens and tell as many people as possible about it.

I made sure to edit the OP - LB and Fauxfoodist were on the right track,  I'm a researcher in experimental psychology and I present at conferences/publish.    ;D

I write papers on why people should give us the money. I make sure the t's are crossed and the i's are dotted.

I am a grant and technical writer.

I have worked for the same company for many years but have sometimes felt my work was unappreciated and under-valued by my employers.... until the moment it wasn't done.  A few years ago my hours were drastically reduced, due to re-organisation within the company and leading to my virtual redundancy ; I still work for them  but am on a zero-hours contract.

That made me snort with laughter.... you might have won.
