    Default California High-Speed Rail

    Not sure if this has been discussed...

    http://www.cahighspeedrail.ca.gov/

    supposedly it can go from LA to SF (or Sacramento?) in 2.5 hours going 220mph

    That website freaked me out. Its like a scene in a movie that takes place in the future with interactive animation/flash movies on a billbord with a lady that narrates about how the government is working for you. Then there is a picture of an action hero from hollywood blockbusters that is now governor to add a sense of irony.

    Like total recall.

    It freaked me out is all im sayin'.

    I'd like to think so...that would be so cool...they are in the design phase now but I think the biggest obstacle right now is buying all the land for the tracks & station...

    That's a shit load of "right of way"...

    My only concern is...How the damned thing will hold up when there's an earthquake a comin'. Other than that, I'm all for some rails being done here in California.

    A bullet train from LA to Vegas would be rad. I can barely make the trip by car since I get restless and my ass starts hurting.

    The bullet train in Japan goes about that fast.

    I assume it would be fairly similar.

    Yeah, true, but Japan's first concern is Godzilla (Gojira). We don't have that issue here.
