It runs so fast, because of reduced baggage.

Each passanger carries only a handbag or laptop, no dirty people with huge plastic bags.

I rather appreciate the "amazing" views from a slightly slower amtrack "observation car",

than praying constantly that the hi-tech device will not derail and send me to heaven early.

I have no problem with being sent to heaven. I rely of scientific evidence which says that we stay on planet earth.

I am not against scientific progress at all ...

" i f "

it serves human kind in the best possible way and if it saves our environment now and in the future.

Being a tech-nerd and and dazzled with one speed record tops the other speed record is not my cup of tea.

Technical advance is not an Olympic discipline and certainly should not be a tool to satisfy patriotic egos.
