Evacuated tube transport

Evacuated Tube Transport is an airless, frictionless, maglev-like form of transportation which is safer, cheaper and quieter than trains or airplanes. Six-person capsules travel in the tubes and can reach a maximum speed of 6,500 km/h, and provide 50 times more transportation per kwh. A tube can travel from New York to Beijing in two hours, and make a round-the-world trip in just six hours.

Evacuated Tube Transport could take you around the world in just 6 hours

This would be so awesome if it becomes a reality.

KL Monorail

Here’s KL Monorail. Took the monorail from Bukit Bintang area to Crowne Plaza. It is clean and pretty comfortable. If you bring a book to read or a laptop to update your blog or play games on during your journey, you won’t even notice time go by. Try KL Monorail next time! They’ve really done a good job at making public transportation easy and affordable.

Last time I go to KL I took Rapid KL I think. It’s a short train service that looks like a bus on tracks. Looks energy efficient to me.

Scene in Suicide Club (Japan) with mass suicide

This is a Japanese horror film so be warned. Film is gory.

Suicide Club, known in Japan as Suicide Circle (自殺サークル ,Jisatsu Sākuru?) is a 2002 Japanese independent film and part of a trilogy that gained a considerable amount of notoriety in film festivals around the world for its controversial subject matter and gory presentation, and has since developed a significant cult following. It won the Jury Prize for “Most Ground-Breaking Film” at the Fantasia Film Festival. The movie was written and directed by Sion Sono. It deals with a wave of seemingly unconnected suicides that strikes Japan and the efforts of the police to determine the reasons behind the strange behavior. (Source: Wikipedia)

Sometimes I wish I have a WTF category. (Oh, I actually do.)

Dancing in a train station

Op Zoek naar Maria gaat van start op vtm, en dat zullen ze in Antwerpen geweten hebben. Ruim 200 dansers hebben de hal van het station op z’n kop gezet.

No I don’t know what the above means. Op zoek naar Maria (Looking for Maria) is a talent competition program that aired in Belgium on Vtm. It premiered on March 25, 2009. The premise of the series was to find a musical theatre performer to play the role of Maria von Trapp in the 2009 Albert Verlinde and Roel Vente revival of The Sound of Music at the Efteling Theatre. The show is hosted by Koen Wauters and featured Frank Van Laecke, Linda Lepomme, and Peter de Smet as the judges for the show. (Source: Wikipedia)
