Wrong, only the best of the best go into a premiere aerospace company like Boeing. Supply/Demand is irrelevant.

From the outside looking in, aerospace looks like "all the cool stuff"

Until you realize it is unbelievably slow paced, heavily regulated, and bureaucratic.

You seem awfully triggered.

Only the best from academia go to companies like those. The best from academia aren't always (actually usually aren't) the best engineers on the market.

I'd hope so in that area. But given that equivalent QOL there is double income, it probably doesn't mean much.

That is a broad comment that doesn't hold true at higher income levels.

When I can afford more house here than someone making 4x what I currently make in the Bay Area, it holds true.

I sure hope so, otherwise they'd be poor AF in the bay area.

If you don't know what that means, you're an idiot. I can buy the same house here as you can buy in the bay area. The difference is that you'll pay $1.5mil for it and I'll pay $300k. Property taxes are whole different story. Better get your PhD level guys to explain this to you.

Oh I got it, the metric for QOL is "how big of a house can I buy"

Apparently Apple hires some of the most dense people on the planet. That would explain a lot.

Obviously not what he's saying.

He already did, that's the sad part. He needed validation so badly that took time out of his day to send a pay stub to Sam, a stranger on the internet.
