11a: RC Pilot.  Flies out of backyard whenever the hell he wants, 
regularly sees how high he can get using a 2lb electric Slow-Stik and a 
fancy altimeter downlink.  Doesn't worry about how tiny a 40" model is at 
2000ft, has FPV goggles for that.

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical
minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd
by the clean end.
