It would cost at least $8 billion to build a subterranean railway that would connect Washington, Baltimore, and New York City. But the Mag Lev Super Train that would ride on it would travel at speeds of up to 311 mph. That means D.C. to Baltimore in 15 minutes, Baltimore to New York in just 45.

Luckily Japan’s prime minister has offered to lend us half the money! I say, let’s do it. Maybe it would effectively turn Baltimore into a borough of New York, and that might not be exactly what we want, but it may be as close to a teleportation device as we’re going to get. Plus, the nose on this kind of train looks crazy!
