I guarantee none of you can beat this. Here goes. I am now instructing in a country that shall remain nameless, that is not South Korea. PM if you want to know. My student and I are reading TAF's and METARS. He has to interpret the following 280530Z. He doesn't know how. I ask him if the numbers 28 ring any bells. He says "No." I ask him what the date is. He doesn't know. He then proceeds to indicate that he doesn't know what month it even is. I jokingly ask him if he knows what year it is. He gives me an inquisitive look and says: "2012?" I look at him for a second to see if he's serious. He then confirms that he is serious by saying: "But it is close to 2012 right?" I am training this man to be a pilot and he doesn't even know what friggin year it is. Seriously, beat that.
