We sent a package to my mother-in-law in Utah. There had been zero updates for a minute, but it updated today. It was expected to be delivered to her by yesterday, but that didn't happen. It updated today as arriving in Memphis, 8 days after leaving Nashville, a distance of 211 miles. I did a little math.
With the USPS, it traveled about .91 mph. (8x24÷211=.9099526066)
The average speed of a snapping turtle is 2.4 mph. Had I strapped the package to the back of a snapping turtle, it would have made the trip from Nashville to Memphis in 3.7 days. (211÷24÷2.4=3.6631944444)
Anyone got a spare snapping turtle?
