    funny video! much better than the SB ads... of course, the person speaking the spanish doesn't hurt the message, either :icon_ devil:

    She is counting up in spanish.

    You can count the time (in seconds) between the lightning bolt and the thunder and that's how far away it was (in miles)

    It's a little hint...

    Still don't get it though. Even if you add those up, it's 6 and the release date isn't the 13th obviously... because Verizon doesn't release on Sunday.

    but again, with lightning and thunder, for every one second between flash and thunder, it's a distance of approx seven miles to the percipient (because light travels faster than sound). so, maybe 1 second between flash and thunder equals seven days, not seven miles. this could mean that the phone is anywhere from 7 to 21 days away (if you want to read that much subtext into it)...

    It's the opposite actually. For every 5 seconds it's approximately 1 mile. Or 3 seconds every kilometer. Or if you want to get crazy it's seconds times 340 for meters.

    I feel like a nerd. :|

    Sound travels through air at about 1100-1200 feet per second (depending on altitude, relative humidity, pressure, etc.)

    Approximately one mile per five seconds (one kilometer per three seconds).
