Real Life Situations?

Hey everybody. I was just wondering if there are any real life situations where the static friction of an object will ALWAYS be greater than the kinetic friction. Please let me know! Thanks!

Just about any application of dry friction between surfaces will satisfy that requirement. I challenge you to find an example where kinetic friction exceeds the maximum static friction.

Your example would be drag, of some form. At sufficient velocities, I imagine every pair of dry surfaces can eventually have kinetic friction exceeding maximum static.
