Anyway something occurred to me after reading what Jamie and Healerman were saying, you see (at the risk of sounding like a show off) I know pretty much all their is to know about how a plane flies through the air, from the initial walk-round checks, control checks to starting the engine, taxiing, take-off, instrument reading, the easy bit in the middle and landing, I even know why each part of an aeroplane does what it does and how.
But, I can't fly and never have actually done all of that, save for some of the ground checks and 'easy bit in the middle' which really doesn't count.

Yeah, imagine a rat infested smelly world, over run with seven billion ‘brilliant’ people and whose going to empty the bins...Einstein.

Do you really think that everyone will benefit from this? That a chimney sweep will become a brain surgeon overnight! Bubble land!
Those who can, will eventually use their newfound powers to prevent those who cannot.
