    Yes, I mean any R/C or AI controlled plane, since that would not necessitate the need for humans in the plane, would it?

    Planes can be completely simulated in software, and be flown remotely. I see no further need for real test pilots.

    You're not getting it. Physics are very well understood now. Computers are only getting faster. And radios are well understood as well. It's not a huge jump to test a whole plane in software and remotely. Hell, you could practically just test it in X-Plane, and that doesn't calculate any of the strains on the materials or any internals.

    You seriously don't think the military is testing the next jet fighter on computers right now? You even mentioned UAVs. It's established stuff.

    Right, you're making a point about airliners, which is mostly about creature comforts. The 747 was built on computers in the 70s. There's nothing magical about physics that it's just impossible to simulate. There may be some human error in which simulations to run, but it's perfectly possible.

    16:30 When I worked for a newspaper in the advertising department and we received files with missing fonts from agencies, we used to threaten them to replace them with Zapf Dingbats next time they would do that

    his designs look unattractive and not appealing-but that may be because it was 2003

    A lot of you designers came from Art Center College of Design. Your instructors were assholes. I'm surprised if most designers can see fun in anything after going through an art school cult with militaristic mannerisms. Carson didn't go to art school, which proves most of design is about stroking people.

    First time I see a commercial after a video and not at the beginning. That is so great.
    If you want to see the commercial or not is up to you. that way you do not end up Hating the product or service advertised. Sorry 4 the off topic. BTW Carson is a MAESTRO!
