Any word on how it is going sorting through the recent astronaut applications?

What level certification do you hold in the Court of Master Sommeliers (CMS)?

Hey! My grandpa was a B-17 pilot during and after WWII, during the war he was stationed in England. Do you think there is any chance you knew him?

I'm currently a test pilot in the Navy, so keeping the tradition alive!

There's a hell of a difference between Level 1 and Level 3.

Level 1, pretty much anyone who's been a waiter for a couple years can get: "Open to anyone with several years experience in the restaurant industry, this level consists of two days of classes followed by a multiple choice exam that typically has a 90% pass rate."

Level 3 takes years to prep for: "The Advanced exam consists of a longer theoretical test that is mostly short answer questions, blind tasting of six wines, and a much more intense service exam. The pass rate is usually 30%"

Quite a bit of gall for a Level 1 to say he's "on par" with a Level 3.

Most actual "fine dining sommeliers" would probably be pissed that you are passing yourself off as one of them.
