Problems with taking things you find on the internet too seriously

Some people…

I probably have 1000+ flight hours in DCS but I wouldn’t think for a second I could just fly a real plane all on my own.
I mean I know the basics of flying an airplane and it would probably help a bit if I were to take flying lessons but sitting in front of a computer screen and going up in the real thing are two completely different things so I would still start under the assumption that I need to learn from scratch.
