Nate and I have a thing we do on every flight. After I bundle up with my BYO blanket, designated flight socks, and favorite neck pillow, we choose a movie.

We browse for the perfect in-flight feature (often debating over thriller vs. comedy), queued it up—each on our own personal seatback screen—and count to three before pushing play. It’s our nerdy in-flight routine: We like to watch the same movie on the plane and start it at the exact same time.

Are we the only people who do this on a plane? (Please say no.)
