    Supplementary WTF: The package is shown as travelling from Oakland CA to Louisville KY by van in just under 7 hours. This seems ... unlikely. (Goggle shows it as being 2309 miles, meaning the van would have to have travelled at something north of 300 mph, close to the record set by the JCB Dieselmax.)

    Maybe they flew the package?

    Perhaps they flew the entire van.

    I hope Clive can afford to buy a lot of dishes. Seems like a full load is going to take a while.

    From California to Kentucky is less than 9 hours? Yeah that had to go by air. Can you actually drive from Virginia to Pennsylvania in 2.5 hours, even in the middle of the night?

    I wonder if someone interpreted Unboxed as how much cardboard to you need to make up the box for the dishwasher, not the dishwasher itself.

    That dishwasher is taller and wider than the Burj Khalifa but less than an inch deep. Stack a few of those vertically and you can build your very own private space elevator. LOL

    The closest approach of Virginia to Pennsylvania (across the narrowest portions of West Virginia and Maryland) is under 18 miles, but that's nowhere near where this package went. Chantilly (Dulles Airport) to Philly is a touch under 150 miles as the crow flies, and you can get it down towards 130 if the PA facility is on the southside. But you're looking at VA-267 (or US 30) to the beltway (I-495), around DC to I-95, right through Baltimore and Wilmington. With a police escort, during a nuclear evacuation test, I don't think you're doing that in 2.5 hours.

    Spinal Tap design dishwashers these days?

    "March 8" == "Tuesday" can be explained by bad coding, computing the day-of-week in one timezone, and the day itself in another timezone. Since the event is timed as GMT+1, it's likely giving one of those for Microsoft HQ time, and another for the local time of the event.

    They used Frank's 2000 inch TV as the smart display on the washer.

  • (nodebb) in reply to Bob

    I agree. The comment was more about the van symbol rather than a plane symbol.

  • (nodebb)

    Maybe the Tuesday, March 8 could have been someone building a string piece by piece by repeatedly calling DateTime.Now or equivalent, at around midnight.

    Look, you asked for a full-sized dishwasher, you got a full-sized dishwasher. Although like much modern design it has had the flatness mania inflicted upon it, so you can only really use it for trays, plates, and cutlery.

    I couldn't work out what was supposed to be the issue with the rainfall map for a while. I had it on a smaller monitor and couldn't read the "null%" chance of rain it was reporting everywhere.

    In The Netherlands, a thick phone is referred to as being a 'refrigerator'. I guess the opposite should be called a 'dishwasher'.
