Tracking Information

The level of information we are given these days is quite impressive and the access we have to this stuns me sometimes. I’ve recently ordered something interesting from the USA, it’s a shooting aid and I’m curious to see how well it works. I had a message telling me it was posted and I was expecting delivery in a week or so, but it turns out it might arrive today and I’m quite excited if surprised. When I clicked on the link to see the tracking the information is quite impressive, although not really given the electronic scanning systems we have these days.

There’s a lovely level of information that makes me feel as though I am in the loop.

This is communication number 1940 and so here are some things that happened that year with little focus on the World War happening at that time:

  • 181 people killed in a train crash in Osaka, Japan.
  • Carbon 14 discovered.
  • First free flight of Sikorsky’s Helicopter.
  • The Lascaux cave paintings are discovered.
  • The Bears defeat Washington 73-0.
