    I was curious what the weight is for everyone's package (if you already have a tracking number). Mine is 1.40 lbs (6 Plus) but I've seen some as high as 1.70 and was wondering what the extra weight could be from. Maybe some carriers just use less packaging?

    Innuendos incoming...

    Once that's out of the way, fear not your package weight or shipping safety. I doubt Apple or the major shipping houses are going to be skimping extra packing peanuts on anyones orders.

    I've never thought to weigh mine, but if I do I'll definitely be waiting to make sure the blood goes to the correct place so I get more bang for my buck.

    You are reading too far in this. Most shipping weights are horribly inaccurate. Typically they have bulk shipping rates so the accuracy of the weight is not critical. Also under a certain amount of weight they really don't care as it doesn't effect the shipping rates.

    I was told girth>length, but no one said a damn thing about weight! WTF?

    Everyone knows the correct way to calculate size is: Length times Diameter plus Weight over Girth divided by area of the base squared

    :p
