What kind of people???
Neurotic,(sp?) mechanically inclined, immature, broke.....oh wait.....that's ME!!!... Actually I'm a professional driver.......no; I don't deliver pizzas or drive a cab, I drive the big trucks for a living.....I enjoy it a lot, I've been at it long enough that I have it pretty good, I'm home every night, don't have to touch any freight......just pin~pin and the equipment I drive is top notch......I just crank up the tunes and go on my merry way....... .......I know every Tim Hortons' Coffee shop in the province...hehehe..... :~) Then there's this heli thing.......now THAT'S fun!!!

I guess I 'll continue the trend, Mechanical Engineer. Sorry Hockeytown, I'm an Autocad user from the very first version, use Mechanical Desktop every day and now I am absolutely in love with Inventor.

I'm a drug dealer for a living.

Actually sell pharmaceuticals for one of the largest companies in the world. Believe it or not I sell Anti-depressants and Sedative Hypnotics to Psychiatrists.

What can I say, After a crash, I can get days of free psychiatric consult, self medicate to get rid of the depression and take great sleepers at night so I can dream more about helicopters and actually get some sleep while I know they are torn up if that be the case. (Just kidding about the self medicating anyway)

Now if I can only get some seeds to grow some money trees to support this hobby

This is great, I figured there would be more blue collar workers. Mechanics, machinists and the like and, there's only a handful of Heli pilots.

I am a Field Superintendent for a Fire Protection Company that I used to be a pipefitter for. We design, install and maintain automatic fire sprinkler systems. I fly helis to forget about all the stress of the fast paced construction business. Helis are my savior so I don't have to by drugs from Smokinjo.
