In 1964, Japan opened the shinkansen to the public.In the 60 years since then, America has proven itself unable to build it. Nor can Canada. There's no bullet train between Washington DC and NYC, the Nations biggest city and capital. There's no bullet train between Toronto and NYC, Canada and America's biggest cities.It doesn't matter if we get another 60 years of joe biden, or another 60 years of donald trumps, there won't be bullet trains in America, because the political system is broken and incompetent.

why does the poster look like a early 2000s euro techno album
>>164637659If it was such a good idea private capital would build it
>>164637659Only thirdies care about trains.
>>164637659that SF to LA one is almost comically ineptly done and I think they are still pouring funding into it despite being like 10x over budget and like 10% complete
>>164637624This looks like an awful tarantino ripoff
>>164637730>>164637761Why is there no bullet train between Canada and America's biggest city? NY-Toronto is similar length to Tokyo-Osaka. So is NY-Washington DC.Why is there no bullet train between the nations biggest city and capital?Trains are more efficient then cars. Trains are more efficient then planes. They don't have to fly up to 40,000 feet cruising altititude for their engines to work properly. They go on a straight line on the ground. Of course shinkansen have track maintenance and airplanes don't, that's why you make it up with volume to cover the fixed cost of track maintenance.Being able to connect power centers, population hubs, those make life slightly better, and can leads to billions in prosperity. Just like how being able to use the internet and talk to people across the internet anonymously and instantly has improved our lives
this looks like a film that would be made in the 00's.>>164637659america's too fucking big for a bullet train. and it's not like america's not capable of world class train infrastructure. american freight rail is best in the world, bar none.
>>164637813You're kidding meChina has way better freight infrastructure. Americas rail infrastructure is 40 years old and lacking maintenanceJapan, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong all have impressive transit but are islands. Not sub continents
>>164637961don't make me repost this incredible shit tier take on /n/. I will give you one chance to apologise you retarded gook. American freight is the best in the world. This is not a negotiation, this is just a fucking fact you arrogant, clueless tard.
>>164637961america wins in efficiency but its such a small sample size since rail isn't that big any more
>>164637624movie looks reddit
>>164637624kind of an ugly looking film, considering the subject matter and settingi bet the whole thing was in front of a green screen
>>164638052America is the greatest country in the worldAmerica's rails plated with goldChinese peasants would climb a wall of dicks just to suck the toes of freight rail crew.>>164638087Yeah but who are you comparing it to at that point. Japanese freight has automation. Australia and New Zealand have very low population density. Does that mean their trains are efficient in terms of man power?If we decide metrics in the other way, India's trains are the most efficient, they've got hundreds or thousands of people klinging to the sides. Even freight rail is massive people movers. India would win in that case for efficiency
>>164637659They're called airplanes. They made bullet trains obsolete the moment they were even proposed.
>>164638292you don't have to wait an hour and half at the station when you get a bullet train.
>>164637659bullet trains are fucking based and i wish non-asian countries had more. europe has some decent ones but i have no idea why everyone else is so slow to actually implement them even though they've talked about it for decades
>>164637704Sounds based to me
>>164638292See>>164637804Airplane engines only function properly after reaching cruising altitudeMeaning short hops, like between new York and Toronto, new York and DC, you're adding the energy to go up 40,000 feet and then back down. Instead of traveling in a mostly straight line and skipping all the cost required to get vertical
>>164637624Trailer's put pretty well to the music. But it gives away too much and is overlong. They should be forced to limit themselves to 1 minute trailers.
>>164638052>>164638213You're fucking retarded lmao. Yet another dumb amerimutt drunk on his own propaganda. Die of opioids and covid please. The world will rejoice.
>>164637804>Just like how being able to use the internet and talk to people across the internet anonymously and instantly has improved our livesYou had me until the end
>>164637624>Brad Pitt spending 2 hours killing nips>will probably bang Karen Fukuhara Yellowbros...not like this
>>164638454not talking about passenger rail. not american. you fucking spastic.
>>164638523Opinion discarded. Captialist america hates public transportation in all levels. They barely have lines and their trains are shitters from the last century.
>>164638566good thing freight is basically entirely private then you clueless gook
>>164638465Not him, but I agree. It is an improvement. Or at least the potential is there. If it makes your life shittier, that's because of the way you use it.
>>164638465Don't forget you're here forever You keep coming back because you love it
With a bullet train you don't wait an hour to board then get finger-raped by a fat 70 IQ sheboon.
>>164638925>finger-raped by a fat 70 IQ sheboon.Does this really hapoen in America? You can see it parodied in Bollywood movies evenm.youtube.com
>From the Director of Deadpool 2WE DID IT REDDIT
>>164637624I was interested in this due to the premise but this whole trailer killed all interest for me.
>>164638454Yeah and how do other Russian buildings look?
>>164637659well the thing is america is a car country, has been for the last 100 years, and most likely always will be. public trans will never be ahead of car manufacturers and lobbyists, etc. also size is a factor as well but major cities like LA could be like tokyo but its a car city so it won't ever happen. at least not in our time.but you are 100% right in general. i fucking loved public trans when i was in tokyo. safe, clean, efficient. here you got crackheads lighting up next to you, if you're a woman you've been assaulted on the daily, and your bus/train is consistently late/doesn't show up. thank goodness i have a car. i'll kill myself before i have to ride public trans in this shithole of a country.

>>164638292this is your brain on fluoride and corn syrup
>>164637659>In the 60 years since then, America has proven itself unable to build it. Nor can Canada.Bullet trains are actually alien technology. Magnetism is a lie. It's all anti gravity.
>>164638292>They're called airplanes. They made bullet trains obsoleteUnfortunately if you count the airport hassle and security checks and assorted fuckery with air travel trains end up being both faster and a nicer experience, plus you enter and exit in the city itself not bumfuckistan airport from which you need some god damn taxi or shuttle.If this was pre-9/11 and cattle car airplanes maybe you'd have a point. As it is, you just have no idea what you're missing out on because you literally don't have the ability to experience a better way to travel.
>>164641137haha glad I didn't click the trailer
>>164637704>not wanting everything to look like an early 2000's euro techno album cover
>>164637659Bullet trains work in Japan because it's a big country but America's too compact for them
>>164641298Based and correct opinion pilled.
>>164637659You realize if it was so impossible for them they have the money to hire Japanese engineers right?
>>164637813>this looks like a film that would be made in the 00's.And that's the good part

>>164641183shinkansen are mostly normal trains.you dont need magnetism for a fast public trains.the german ICE can go up 250kphthe french TGV up to 320kph, like the normal shinkansen.SF to LA could be done in ~2 hours with these decade old trains. The newer ones can drive faster, but europe doesnt really have tracks for >400kph trains, so they stick to they 250-320kph speed.it would be interesting to see at what distance a plane would be faster then a "normal" highspeed train, if you include the mandatory ~2 hours you need to arrive before departure, waiting for your luggage at your destination etc.
>>164637813>american freight rail is best in the world, bar nonewebm of 2021 train robberies here

>>164641620>it would be interesting to see at what distance a plane would be faster then a "normal" highspeed train, if you include the mandatory ~2 hours you need to arrive before departure, waiting for your luggage at your destination etc.People that aren't familiar with trains really under (burgers) estimate the convinience of being able jump just jump on and of a high speed train like it was city bus. AND you're already in the middle of whatever city your were going to
>>164637961>Americas rail infrastructure is 40 years oldWhere do you retards come up with this shit
>>164641620>if you include the mandatory ~2 hours you need to arrive before departureMaybe if you fly around Thanksgiving or Christmas>>164641727>AND you're already in the middle of whatever city your were going toThat's presuming I'd want to be in the city center. Given how spread out our cities are, that's a dubious claim
>>164637761>noooo you can't just make cheap, clean and fast public transit, everyone has to own a car and spend 2 hours qeueing up in traffic every day to commute to and from work!
Brad Pitt looks like Jay Kay from Jamiroquai these days. Should make a biopic of him cool racing cars.
>>164638407Airliners fly at least 2x as fast as passenger trains
>>164641884>noooo you can't just make cheap, clean and fast public transitPublic transit is none of those
>>164641939>t. carjew subsidy beneficiary
>>164642173Yep. Beats riding the bus
>>164641877>dubious claim KEKIt's definitely more likely you want to travel to the center of a city than to an airport that's another 45min train ride outside of said city.
>>164642457>It's definitely more likely you want to travel to the center of a cityThe closest big city to me, Atlanta, has 3 or 4 city centers and dozens of outlying suburbs. Being dropped off downtown might be beneficial for some businessmen but I think that for most people, having to get picked up or dropped off downtown is way more of a hassle than just going to the airport (which was built to handle that traffic volume).> an airport that's another 45min train ride outside of said cityWhy does your type always have to lie? In the case of Atlanta, getting downtown from the airport is a 20-25 minute train ride and less than 15 minutes by car
>>164637659Only homeless people take the train in America
Japanese acting is so cringe.
