The earlier Record or Super Record has a better look.</p>

Quite a lot of it, in fact:





I'm more than slightly surprised that ingesting such a large slug of water at WOT doesn't instantly demolish the compressor wheel.

According to the comments in the vid, Schiphol airport in Amsterdam. Obviously I have no way to confirm/deny, but I suspected it must be a huge international airport for that type of infrastructure. I'm skeptical as well though.


According to Wiki, it's just over half as busy as Hartsfield-Jackson in Atlanta, so it'd be interesting to see what that system looks like.

I don't see why anyone would call bullshit or be skeptical. Baggage-sorting systems such as these are commonplace, and not at all different from the package-sorting systems employed at the hubs of FedEx, DHL and UPS. Denver International is one of the most famous (as it was plagued with startup problems) but today has 19 miles of track and 5 miles of conveyor belt.

Here's one company which manufactures them: https://www.beumergroup.com/en/produ...tation-systems

Here are the datasheets on the individual components which make up such a system from another company: http://baggagehandlingsystems.com/ (click on Products, and scroll to the bottom)


Here's the system at Helsinki airport:





Here's London Heathrow:





Dubai:





Dubai again:





Seattle-Tacoma:






Changi:






A promo video from another company that manufactures these systems:






Even B&H Photo's flagship retail store in NYC has a similar system which runs overhead throughout the entire store to deliver customer purchases first from the basement to the specialty counter (so the customer can inspect the product), and then again to the pickup area just past the checkout counter. I shop there frequently, and It's pretty impressive to just stand there and watch the packages fly above you:

Twas merely based on the condition I typically see my bag arrive in.

I'm kind of amazed there is that much infrastructure to move a bag, I would have never guessed! Learned something new today.

Also, making a vague shitty statement then backtracking that it was a joke that no one got......try again.

Seriously, you actually thought I was calling out Joe for posting misinformation?

Whoops, didn't see the Gorilla commercial earlier (stupid phone) on my computer now.

Foot squarely in mouth.
