    Speaking of trains, have you seen the new high speed maglev trains in Japan? Using magnetic levitation can get up to speeds of 500k/hr compared to old built trains that go 320k/hr. It's crazy engineering, they sound like a frigging fighter jet going past. Imagine the NIMBY uproar in the UK if that was proposed for HS2 555

    Have you seen this? It's another brain child of ironman..er.. Elon Musk.(the Tesla guy)

    A train on a cushion of air that doesn't have windows, it has video screens that show you what you passing....at 700 miles per hour!! San Fran to Los Angeles in 35 minutes...

    I was also reading about supersonic commercial flight possibly coming on line in less than 10 years.

    What a pleasure that will be.....flying to Phuket within a few hours.....
