It wont make the plane go down. A few times when I was flying I forgot to turn my cell phone off and someone would call me and I would get a lot of buzzing in my headphones from the interference.

There are some claims that electronic devices can mess with altimeters and things like that. You dont want you plane to say its 10,000 feet off the ground when you are only 1,000 feet off the ground do you?

And what you said earlier, I could have kept going with being colorblind and all that, could never work for the military but I could still get a job being a pilot.

Are you suggesting that most people pay less? Right now I'm paying about 1.5x that.


It's unfortunate that shit like this is associated with my generation, too many worthless fuck-wads who want something for nothing.

So, lets say uncle same takes 25%, it gets a bit tighter, but you don't need the $450 car payment each month, you also probably aren't spending $1000 a month on the loans.

Now get married and cut most of those bills in half, or at least down by a small amount and life isn't so bad


What is the tax rate on a single guy making 60k/yr? OP also said they, so I am curious if the fella is married with kids.

I was only making $40K right out of college with student loan debt. I make a lot more than that now, but at the time I was able to pay a lot of it down while having a decent place to live, newer car, and still have hobbies. A single guy making $60K should have absolutely no problem.

I'm an idiot. I do pay that much, but it's not the minimum and it's for both mine and my wife's student loans and I pay double on one of them. Realistically our minimum would be like $900 combined

I was suggesting most pay less than $1000.

let's say 25% like I did in my post? I am not sure, the point still remains $60k out of college with loans isn't the end of the world.

I made $28k out of college. Owned a new car, rented a modest apartment, had a baby, and still had money in my pocket at the end of the week.....

COMBINED......so just for shits and giggles your minimum is $450 a month, not the $1,000 I suggested be paid.

A certain dress code? Really, how much does it cost for about 5 shirts and pairs of khakis? (4 if you have casual fridays). $200?

I think there are tens of thousands of engineers in the area making more than 60k. Most aren't dressing very fancy, at least everywhere I've worked.
