B-1 is one of those planes that’s “supersonic” in that it’s definitely designed to go over Mach 1, but is not operated that way on a day to day basis. No point in wasting a ton of fuel to go a little bit faster on a training flight. Also that baby probably gets jostled around more in her daily commute than in that aircraft.

Successful in a lot of circles isn’t equivalent to money. Same thing happened with Aaron Hernandez. A lot of athletes literally only have that going for them. People will say “hard work and determination” gets people into the upper level of sports when really it’s 90% genetic lottery. So, while he was successful in sports, he developed zero other life skills. Never needed them because he was destined to just be used for our entertainment.
