Moses with a tablet


Technically, Moses was the first person with a tablet downloading data from the cloud.

And due to the first commandment, Moses became the first person to have a tablet with fake news.

Land speed


What is your fastest land speed record ?

Mine is 431 km/hr on a Maglev Train in China
    from Longyang Road Station
    to Shanghai Pudong International Airport
2018 October.

What is the experience like riding the train ?

It is relatively quiet and stable, but not as quiet and stable as I had imagined. Well, if you sip from a cup of coffee, the coffee may get spilled on your clothes  :-)

Nonetheless, I am impressed by the speed, especially when 2 Maglev Trains pass each other. The relative speed is then 431 kph + 431 kph = 862 kph. At that speed, in less than the blink of an eye, before the whoosh sound made by the trains passing each other has registered in your brain, the other train is gone !  Well, I had never experienced anything passing so fast close by !


More on the Maglev Train

As at the time of writing, this is the only commercially operated magnetic levitation train in the world; and also the fastest commercially operated train in the world.

From Wikipedia: The line's balance of payments has been in huge deficit since its opening.

From 2004 to 2006, Shanghai Maglev Transportation Development Co. Ltd, the company which runs the line, had more than one billion RMB in losses. The line's lack of profitability derives from its construction for political reasons as a test project for the future of China's rail infrastructure, rather than as a viable market solution for the needs of travelers.

Good Morning


I always say "Morning" instead of "Good Morning".
Because if it were a Good Morning, I'd still be in bed asleep.

Crazy road in Tasmania


Jacobs Ladder, Ben Lomond National Park, Tasmania, Australia

Jacobs Ladder is the name of an unsealed narrow sharp winding and precipitous ascent to Ben Lomand plateau in a zigzag part of Ben Lomond Road.


This pic was taken from Watchtower Lookout at the top of the Ladder, 2017 January.



From bottom of Jacobs Ladder, looking up at the road zigzaging its way to Watchtower Lookout ~~~
This pic doesn't show it ... It is a crazy steep road ... If you are afraid of height and exposure, you won't be able to drive through it !


More photographs of Jacobs Ladder are in my blogs when I climbed Legges Tor, 2nd highest mountain in Tasmania.
