What's Wrong With That Picture? (Photo) Drunk Pilots in India

He may have wings on his shirt and, maybe had a few drinks in his lifetime but, this Dude is relatively harmless.  It's not like he's gonna go out and maim somebody with his bicycle.  When he drinks, he drinks.  And when he drives, he drives.  But, you'll never see him driving when he's been drinking.  This photo was taken by Jarod Sampson in Okinawa, Japan.  I don't want to know what's wrong with this picture. 

The picture my question is about concerns guys with wings on their shirts in India.  You need to use some imagination for this one.  Picture this, if you will: 

How about 57 pilots in India, over the past two years, busted for attempting to fly while intoxicated ?

Eleven of them got fired !   The rest of the drunk pilots (46 in my mind) are still flying airplanes with people as passengers.  Some of them got fined, or warned, "Ya shouldn't do stuff like that" but, they get to go back up in the air with travelers thinking, "Plane looks pretty safe, to me".  Yawn.

Call me overly cautious, if you'd like, but, if I had a goat I wanted to send to the market I'd trust the Dude with the bike to get there safely. 

You won't catch me stuffin goats, dead or alive, on any airplanes flown by those drunken pilots in India.

Go have a look yourself and tell me WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT PICTURE ?
