Are you "deaf and dumb"?
LOL.....I sense that you were being sardonic.
But if you, are indeed....not able to hear, nor speak then, well......you will not ever qualify for a Medical (in the U.S., or anywhere).....however, there is NO reason (yeah...."caps"...) you could not at least experience the concept, and the training, of flight.
IF (yeah, "caps" again) you can read......and see, have full mobility of all four limbs. In fact......there are people who I have met, who have been able, even with "disabilities", to still be qualified pilots.
I know of an airline pilot with only one eye!! He actually worked at my company. Yes, he had the skills learned when he had two eyes.....he had a personal injury, on personal time off...when he last the eye. But, perseverance and dedication, and something (regarding getting a Medical issued, by the FAA) called "Demonstrated Ability".
The "demonstrated ability" aspect of a Medical issuance might apply to "pianopraze"....now that I think about it.
Of course, for "lwinder".......if you will continue to be sarcastic and sardonic, and resistant to better understanding, well then....that is YOUR (yeah, sorry for blinding you with "caps") choice........

Professor Benford (U.C. Irvine, CA), wrote the following regarding the public in a Reason.com article in 1997: “…But perhaps the greatest unknown is social: How will the politically aware public react--those who vote, anyway? If geoengineers are painted early and often as Dr. Strangeloves of the air, they will fail. Properly portrayed as allies of science--and true environmentalism--they could become heroes… A major factor here will be whether mitigation looks like yet another top-down contrivance, another set of orders from the elite.

I'm surprised that is your favourite thread, since it was also one where you were shown to be dishonest - www.abovetopsecret.com...
Twist words much?
I give up!!
