Quite possibly the most important job in ensuring safety across the world. Making sure dumb ass pilots do not hit each other and making sure that passnengers can arrive on time regardless of what the pilots try to do to mess it up.
Wow, thanks to my great air traffic control skill, I helped 10,000 people take off and land safely and on time today.

a very complicated job in which a few choice select very brilliant individuals tell all so very dumb pilots what to do so as they dont fuck over the whole continent with delays and mid air collisions. therefore being the most important job in the world (doctors are not the most important) because you only need doctors if there are no air traffic controllers to provide the safe orderly and expoditios flow of air traffic.
dude your so smart that you should be an air traffic controller... you know the smartest people in the world.

A way of indirectly calling a person out on something. This is best done over the phone or on a person-to-person communication program, such as ventrilo or the default ones used in many online video games. The process generally begins with a static sound and followed by slightly masking your voice to purposely sound like you're talking through a cheap microphone.

A game played by airline pilots and air traffic controllers. The game has no rules, and neither side knows how it is played, but the goal is to prevent flights from arriving in time for passengers to make connecting flights.
Flying used to be fun, but its not with this air traffic control shit.
