The plane pretty much flies itself and you've got two pilots. Obviously a wasted pilot isn't an ideal situation, but the actual danger is low.

If it helps calm his nerves, I don't see any harm in the pilot being a little tipsy

Dude are you a pilot? I am one, and that's ridiculous.

I'm not recommending people operate aircraft drunk. I'm just saying the level of danger is considerably lower than people think.

Holy shit really?

And I'm saying––using my experience flying planes––that when shit goes bad it goes bad reeeally quickly. And in those split-second moments you don't want anything less than 100% of cognitive function.

Right on

Been friends w/ a girl for years since I met her overseas (chatting on phone often). When we started travelling together on a few trips, she annoyed me on so many levels, we are just not compatible so I no longer want to travel with her. I still value our friendship and don't mind continuing catching up on the phone. I'm non-confrontational so instead telling her i find her difficult/annoying, I just stopped inviting her/avoid trips/added a lil more distance. But she doesn't get it..-contd

Do you think your peers bill their time accurately? I’ve been using the timer on my time management website and trying to keep myself honest for my Instagram breaks, but my mentor (I’m a first year) said he just estimates time based on how many hours he worked that day. Our NYC V-5 firm always does block billing so it’s incredibly easy to say “8 hours on matter X”. Anyway, especially with work from home increasing distractions, do you keep yourself honest with billing?

If I moved from EY Business Consulting to AlixPartners Enterprise Improvement would my exit opportunities 5+ down the road be much different? AlixPartners is appealing because of the smaller firm feel, more focused line of work, and substantially better pay.
