Scenario: Crystal clear CAVU moonless night, following the northern
shore of Lake Ontario back from Hamilton to Toronto. I wanted to get
fairly high to get the carpet-of-lights effect for my passenger.

Me: Toronto Terminal, FQOZ is a Cherokee 140, Burlington skyway at
3500, VFR to Buttonville via the island, would like to get as
high as possible.

ATC: QOZ, cleared to flight level 230.

Me: <sputter, gasp!> Say again! Did you say flight level 230 for QOZ?!

ATC: Just kidding; I can give you up to 6500.
