I understand that a pilot in an F/A-18 or F/15 can pull greater G's for shorter amounts of time, but I would have to imagine that launching in a shuttle is a hell of a lot of fun... oh and scary as you hope the bomb you're riding in doesn't blow up. I wish I could designate where my tax dollars go, I would give it all to Nasa. :)
