Ban lifted on pilots taking antidepressants  Reply with quote  

Ummm… yeah, riiight…

I've seen and heard enough of those big pharma commercials for antidepressants to know that a common side effect of most is increased thoughts of suicide.

That's just not what I want in a commercial pilot.

If they're going to assign them to be kamikaze meting out some al-qaeda payback, well then, maybe; but we really can't afford to throw away aircraft like that.

Ahem. Wink

Nevertheless, regarding banning something that is "anti-", I'm still trying to figure out what to do when my GPS device asks me whether to turn off the "de-clutter" feature," instead of asking whether to clutter or not.

Shocked Wink

Still, despite common convention, "through" is a perfectly reasonable spelling for the pronunciation I intended. I'm uncommonly unconventional today Wink

Oh good, I've spent most of my life being unconventionally uncommon...
