And two, so being a pilot isn't very technical huh? I bet they just let anyone fly fighter jets...

wow...putting words in my mouth. major fail

when did I say a Pilot job isn't technical?

I will say this much though...back in the old days being a fighter pilot means much more. you basically have to "have the right stuff." now they make exceptions and gives waivers to people. for example, back in the old days you must have 20/20 vision but now they give our waivers to people with LASIK/PRK surgery.
