Default This Should Get Your Head Scratching

I ordered an item from Hong Kong on Monday, specifically to be sent Express. Here is the timeline, see if you can figure this one out:

1 - Order placed approximately 0700 Monday (1900 HK time), I am Eastern Time.

2 - 2100, Monday order marked received and sent to shipping (0900, Tuesday HK time)

3 - 0530, Tuesday, order shipped (1730, HK time), what really happens is that the Bill of Lading is made up, but shipper still has to make pick-up.

4 - 0230, Wednesday shipper picks up package (1430, HK time).

5 - 0934, Wednesday, package has cleared HK Export Control and enroute (2134, HK time)

6 - 1329, Wednesday, (Shipping log times now reflect Eastern Time), package arrived in Cincinnati.

That has to be one fast plane taking only 4 hours to fly over 6K miles.

Of course I imagine that the four hours is only for an update on the Export Control in HK and as soon as I see other tracking it will make sense.

Were they travelling against the earth as it spins?

If the earth spins at 2400 MPH and the jet travels against the rotation at 300 MPH then it would actually be traveling at 2700 MPH.

If it traveled with the rotation it would be traveling at -300 MPH.

More Math!
2400 mi/hr = 3520 ft/sec….. ignoring inertia- if I jump straight up and manage to stay airborne for 0.1s…. the earth will rotate and I will land 352 feet down the road . Why have I never done this before. Maybe you'd like me to do it now!

Do it now! Do it now!! Of course you'll have to suspend gravity for that split-second.

Update - I received the final tracking from the courier and there has been no change. Spoke with CR and they have no idea, other than a glitch in the software with the wrong times.

Other than that it was a quick order, only 3 days from Hong Kong.

Well there's your answer Paul.

But I don't know if there's such thing as a geisha-boy.

I think that the only way you're going to travel 352 ft in a 0.1sec jump is if that plane that's doing 2700 mph flies low and nails you. If so, please have someone video and post this event for us to verify your story as you won't be here.
