On the list of top-50 salaries, lawyers came in 15th. Behind A whole bunch of medical specialties, CEOs, and Airline Pilots.

I remember going through the Occupational Outlook book thing several years back and thinking, wow, pilots make a lot of money. I could do that. Then I remembered I have 20/400 vision.

I think it would be pretty cool to be a pilot, while I patrol the friendly skies in a bus.  :)

you know how sailors spend all their money on alcohol when they pull into port?

pilots do that at the admiral's lounge between every flight.

/just sayin'

Is there some kind of eyesight requirement for being a pilot? Glad to know that "law teachers, postsecondary" is the best paid of academics.

I know there is for the Air Force; airline pilots, I'm not sure. I don't think there is as long as it's correctable. Besides, planes fly themselves nowadays.

The vision requirement for a commercial pilot is correctable to 20/20. Glasses/contacts are fine.

Screw law school then! I'm going to be a bus driver airline pilot.




Sorry for stealing your joke, Villefort
