My assistant at work just told me she watched Ford vs. Ferrari...

She went on to tell me that she had no idea they could make cars that fast in the 60's (I didn't touch this point) especially because her 2013 Acura RDX can do 180.

I asked her why she thought her "Honda" could do 180 and she said because it is on the speedometer. I told her that her RDX wouldn't do 180 if it was dropped out of a stealth bomber at 20K feet.

We then went and googled it and came up with the RDX top speed of 135 and she said "that's close enough".

I just found it astounding what she considers "close enough".
