This lunar distance calculation made by Shaquille O'Niel was not only extemporaneous but it was at the behest of Charles Barkley live on TNT.
Shaq guessed a 10 1/2 hour flight to the moon. 10.5 hrs at ~500mph = ~5,775 miles.
Interestingly, this is not too far off from the current Flat Earth contention of the solar distance calculation being conjectured at a little over 3,000 miles. Specifically, according to the video below, 3391.444 miles. Others have calculated as low as 3,100 miles.
At the end of the video, Shaq lowered his guess to 7 hours, which if a plane is going 500 miles per hour, is 3,500 miles, even closer to Flat Earth predictions of the solar altitude.
