    Cannot wait for these. You’d be able to get to Longford town from Dublin in 5 minutes.
    They are building one to Longford town aren’t they??

      Germany, definitely.

      Was on a ICE(InterCityExpress) from Munich to Berlin in 1995 and was amazed by the VDU in the carriage displaying the actual speed the train was travelling – ‘We are now travelling at 230kph, estimated time….etc.’

      That was 26 years ago.

      Motion-detecting urinals 26 years ago in Munich airport was another ‘Wow’ moment. It definitely beat the abuse I suffered at Heathrow where I was addressed as ‘Paddy’ by an English policeman.

    Maybe concentrate on the space thing first… how many tickets have been sold already for that? Anytime I see it on the news it’s on another test flight…
