I have a friend from college. Good guy. Just a little nutty. Ya'll know the type.

Some helos fly over his house. Sure as the sun rises, I get a phone call. 1/
Friend: there's 6... no, 7 of them! What are they doing?

Me: probably training

F: (voice rising) 7 at once!? That's too many for just training!

[Editor's note: he's a construction supervisor knows precisely zero about military helo training. Nor do I. But more than him]

M: Do you live under an MTR?


M: Military training route. Airspace marked by the FAA for the military to fly through.

F: Oh God there's more of them, WHAT. ARE. THEY. DOING?

M: Just googled you. You're smack under an MTR.


M: [patience waning] I just texted you the map, note the corridor that goes more or less right above your house

F: Who put that out? The Government!?

M: Well yeah... the FAA.

F: And you believe it?

M: An official map demonstrating that helicopters can legally fly over your house is a plausible explanation for helicopters flying over your house.

F: Screw off. You're one of [string of expletives about DC people]

M: K man, hope you're doing well. Loved the Xmas card

realized after I hung up...
