I ordered something while sitting in my house in Alexandria, VA. I ordered it on the computer at 4:18PM on Wednesday, with the direct involvement of only one human being – me.

In probably less than 48 hours (it has not yet arrived), it will be delivered to my front door. 1978 miles in less than 48 hours.

Even though this is commonplace (and expected), I still find it pretty amazing. Oh these times in which we live…

Edited: Package arrived at 1:48PM. 45 hours and 30 minutes after I placed the order.
