I was looking through old stuff and found a worksheet that said "It takes 3 and a half hours to fly between LA and New York. If a plane takes off at 2:00pm from LA to NY, and another takes off from NY at 4:30, going to LA, which plane will be closer to NY when they cross paths?

Me overhearing one of my friends: (Don’t know the exact words, but it was something like Emirates sending a plane to Lufthansa due to safety problems, and this friend said that Lufthansa and Emirates’ owners are cousins which is why Lufthansa got the plane)

Another conversation a half a week back:
Me: Have you been on a 747?
My friend (not the same one from the previous story): What’s that?
Me: (takes a 30-second drawing I made a few days back and shows him) This is a 747 (the drawing has the upper deck and 4 engines)
My Friend: All the planes I’ve seen look like that.
Me (sad that he doesn’t even know the basics of aviation)

So in school we were doing trigonometry and one
problem said “If a plane is flying at 100,000 feet and only has 5 miles to get to the runway, what should it’s angle of descent be?” That is about as bad as it gets.
