Dangerous Careers in Space

Actually, the most interesting part is in – yes! – the comments, where uncounted numbers of Navy personnel insist that the hazards of the Enterprise is actually paradise, compared to working on an actual naval vessel.

All I know is that working on a flight deck would trim – OK, OK, butcher – my estimated life expectancy, so I’m going to leave that to the men who know what they’re doing.


Clumsiness, curiosity, and a certain low-key tendency to not observe  ‘irrational’ orders may be tolerable in the business world, where the prices for learning the hard way are not too steep. Things are way different in the military.

A man’s got to know his limitations,” after all.

And yes, I do believe in Providence… but I don’t believe in testing Him over much. At the end of the day, I’m responsible for my actions: and if I know I’m a horrible cook, I’m staying out of the kitchen.
