Maybe they shouldn't fly for NASA

Wa compelled me to watch some girly movie I’ve never seen before: An Officer and a Gentleman. Meh. Richard Gere.

Anyway, at one point all these Naval cadets are marching and doing their chanting thing, and it goes a little bit like this:

I don’t know but it’s been said
Air Force wings are made of lead

I don’t know but I’ve been told
Navy wings are made of gold

Setting aside the obvious metaphorical intent of this little ditty, I must point out that since the specific density of lead is 11,340 kg/cubic meter and the specific density of gold is 19,320 kg/cubic meter, GOLD WOULD SINK FASTER.
