I was in the Royal air force till 04 and these days i'm a lowly lorry driver.
I wouldn't say lorry drivers are lowly.. A study I saw years ago (can't remember where) stated people who do driving jobs, are some of the most
Some of the reasons for this was the brain has been trained for memory, (remembering roads, especially which roads trucks can use etc) recognition,
(because drivers usually use landmarks to memorize different routes) also their brains are always alert and active (as opposed to a mind numbing
office job) there were many more which I can't remember just now, I'll add them if I do.
(there was something about a-z reading aswell, but with modern technology, such as sat nav's i don't think that really applies these days)
