I know a guy (great guy btw) who works as a pilot. He was shooting the breeze with one of his passengers saying how much he enjoys being a pilot.
Turns out the passenger he was talking to was Jim Lovell. To those of you unclear with who that is, he was the captain of Apollo 13.
@sir killjoy, Well goddamn.
@TheRatMan, thanks noobnoob
@sir killjoy, Does he work for nasa?

@sir killjoy, Holy fvcking shjt
@sir killjoy, that's awesome! Just read more about Lovell in a book I'm on called A Man On The Moon. Great book so far (600+ pages long). Wasn't Lovell also on Apollo 8? It's still amazing what mankind accomplished that fateful summer 50 years ago. As an engineer, I can't fathom being a part of that historic moment.
@sir killjoy, “I know a guy, but you wouldn’t know him - he goes to another pilot school.”
