Well I have a degree in "Engineering Design and Applied Mechanics" from Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
My job title is "Technical designer" my work is to design complex mechanical systems.

so if any of you need a insanely overly complex way of opening your garage door, let me know and I'll come op with some thing for you :coffee:

I didn't know they were that strict about everything. I've got the same situation as you except that they probably won't let me in because of color blindness. :p But I want to be a pilot anyways.
Lol, please don't take this the wrong way, but that reminds me of Dwayne from Little Miss Sunshine. If you want to get a pilot's license, I'm not sure if you can get a physical, BUT there's the sport rating now. It's cheaper than a Private Rating, and you don't need a physical (unless you used to have one, but failed a medical exam). I might have to get that because I have ADHD.

I can get a private pilot's license, but I just might have a couple restrictions.
My grandfather and his brother were colorblind but cheated the test to get into the Air Force. XD I don't think I'd try that though.
Unrelated: I never saw that movie til the other day. :p

If you get a PPL and are colorblind, I'm pretty sure the restriction you'll have is "no night flight or flight directed by light guns"--given that one of the big advantages of the PPL over the sport pilot license is the ability to fly at night, you might as well get a sport pilot license instead, I think.
