Interesting.
Sorta hard to picture Ghostbusters Ackroyd as a LEO.

Don Galloway, the actor who portrayed Sergeant Ed Brown in the Raymond Burr series, IRONSIDE, actually served as a deputy Sheriff in California too.

That quote from the ending of "The Blues Brothers" is one of my all-time favorite movie lines. Sometimes in the simulator, when we're cleared for takeoff, we'll recite the line, then just as we shove the thrust levers to the firewall, we add the final two words, "Hit it!".

You know, I've done that too - but in an X-Wing... :)

Capt'n, that's much more appropriate than "Give me a vector, Victor". ;)

Can you tell my head is full of absolutely useless knowledge?

B-2 and F-117, in my case. (the old Jane's ATF game, specifically the "Fighters Anthology" combo-pack.)

Yep, I've logged a lot of flight time... simulated.

But CaptainG gets to do the real deal.

Right... I'm doing a lot of "pre-study" with an eye toward getting my own wings (have and have read all the ASA test-prep books, brushing up on the math again and looking for a wider variety of practice tests before I start dry-running), but the question is whether or not FAA deems the combination of an autism-spectrum condition, dreadful but correctable nearsightedness and having once been on Ritalin due to a misdiagnosis of ADHD but off the crap for almost a quarter-century a Showstopper, even though I can pass any written exam you put in front of me and my simulator record, using FS-X and X-Plane (two of the most realistic sims available) is ZERO fixed-wing crashes. (EVERY chopper I've flown in the sim I've pranged, though. :( LOL )

Never mind that back around 9-11, the USAF still had one pilot with a prescription almost as strong as mine flying B-52s in COMBAT... though his case may have been "got in while 20/20 plus Rank Has Its Privileges".

I can offer one piece of advice: When your medical examiner casually asks, "Hey, how's it goin'?" don't reply, "Sometimes the voices tell me to do bad things."

It was worth it, though.
