Japanese Maglev, 500km/h or 310 Miles per hour

So you want to get fast to your destination? try maglev at 310 Miles per Hour, you can get as fast as a plane and even Formula 1 cars are slow, the sound you hear in this video is not the sound of the wheels, is the sound of the air, the actual record for the fastest Maglev train was in 2003 in Japan the train model MLX01 at 581km/h that's 361 miles per hour

i wonder, does this train work on the cat & the buttered toast theory, namely when a cat is dropped, it always lands on its feet, and when toast is dropped, it always lands buttered side down.

Therefore, if a slice of toast is strapped to a cat's back, buttered side up, and the animal is then dropped, the two opposing forces will cause it to hover, spinning inches above the ground.

If enough toast-laden felines were used, they could form the basis of a high-speed monorail system.
