Basically, people who I would have picked as far less capable when I was in school are lurning 2 fly and they're having no trouble.
Don't go to loud concerts and you should be OK.

Two of the guys I knew at high school wanted to fly. Specifically, they wanted to be Air Force pilots. One was my best friend at the time and he was exactly what the Air Force wanted - except he failed a small but crucial part of the medical test, I think to do with his heart. The other guy was a fucking moron who tagged along just because he idolised my friend, and he got roundly rejected straight away because he bombed the most basic of intelligence tests. He now works at his parents' shop for a few days, drinks far too heavily, has unprotected sex with skanks he doesn't know, and probably has half of the world's known STDs by now. I like to think of his pilot aspirations and laugh heartily.

Now there's an intimidating game show. I've always thought I could own Millionaire (except for the part where I could never tolerate that insufferable git, Eddie McGuire), but the Einstein Factor? Fucking hell, that'd be hard.

WHAT? Fuck, that works better in person.

Well, if I fail the medical tests here I'll just go somewhere more lax about it, like America.

And, lulz at the tag-a-long friend.

I do figure that if I fail the pilotry medical tests there's a fair bit I can still do in aviation.

naaaah, at least they only ask you about your special subject. Imagine if you were on with a trainspotter and a U2 buff?

According to weathergirl Kim and the news, it's going to be worse. But it's hitting on Tuesday night and Wednesday, when I don't have to be outside.

Yeah, just a bit.

I never really understood why my friend didn't pursue a different path within aviation. I think probably he had his heart set so much on being an Air Force pilot and had his hopes built up so much by blitzing everything that when he failed the medical test, it just shattered his ambition. But now he's studying to be an engineer and should be damn good at that too, so good on him.

Tag-along friends for the lulzy phailure. This guy had no interest whatsoever in being a pilot, then as soon as my friend's ambition was clear, guess who suddenly knew the entire history of aviation and was obsessed with fighter jets! Well, except for the part where even I could outsmart him ...
