Mail is as Slow as Snails....Literally!

I've been having tons of issues with the postal service later and this is just confirmation. Mail erally is as slow as snails. Brings new/old meaning to "snail mail."

WARSAW (Reuters) - It's official. Postal delivery is as slow as snails, at least in Poland.

Daily Gazeta Wyborcza said Michal Szybalski calculated that it took 294 hours for the letter to arrive at his home. He also said the distance between his home and the sender was 11.1 kilometers.

Given the distance and the time, the speed of the letter was 0.03775 kilometers per hour. Szybalski calculated that a garden snail travels at around 0.048 kilometers per hour.
