Snail Mail

I heard in the news yesterday about a postcard that was sent 79 years ago but has only just arrived at its destination. See Postcard arrives after 79 years.

How is this possible?

I have a theory that the postcard got sucked into the Bermuda Triangle and ended up in the future, August 2008.

What other reason can there be for such a delay? Unless of course the postcard was being delivered by a snail. Even snails can't be that slow unless of course the snail was sucked into the Bermuda Triangle and came out years later, and had to trudge its way to the destination.

I'm sticking to my "Bermuda Triangle" theory as it's the only logical explanation.

Still at least the postcard got there in the end. Better late than never.
