Hold very tight please! Ding ding.
Fr Tim Moyle's Where the Rubber Hits the Road is a blog worth following for its variety of posts on spiritual, theological, and social issues as well as the occasional item of wider interest. The other day I picked up on his link to the world's fastest bus, designed by engineers in the Netherlands.
The bus looks more like the kind of stretch limousine that parents of little girls hire for their primary school leaving party but it has a cruising speed of 155mph. Suggested routes have been Amsterdam to Groningen (ditched by the Dutch government) and Dubai to Abu Dhabi which more feasible in financial terms and less hindered by obstacles on the route. I don't suppose it would fall within the Oystercard zone.
