View Full Version : Old aviation joke

old joke - "the aircraft of the future will be crewed by a pilot and a dog. The dog's job is to bite the pilot if he tries to touch the controls. The pilot's job is to feed the dog".

Here the dog needs more training than the pilot.

So the answer to the question "Man or Machine" is "Dog!"

More generally there are two ways to deal with any difficult task - practice harder or make the task easier.

Which reminds me, my calculus professor in college was named Chester Miracle. It literally took a Miracle to get me through calculus. Ba-doom.
