Transportation Time Wasters

Supposedly the picture above is of the corporate jet traffic leaving Miami, Florida after the Super Bowl. I don't know if it's real or not but it looks cool.

Sticking with the transportation theme, click the picture below for an interesting site about the construction and abandonment of the Cincinnati subway system.

They began planning the system in 1912, no trains ever ran on the line, and the debt from the project was not paid off until 1966. Now, of course, the government is considering a
new light rail plan using the original subway's tunnels. Politicians at their finest!

Next, click below for a site that tracks all of the ships in the San Francisco Bay harbor. It shows where they are, the name and type of ship, speed, and destination in real-time. It will waste a minute or two of your time.

Finally, below is a video about a Kiwi who learns to "fly." Without ruining the movie for you, I'll say that it shows that, no matter how impossible it seems, any dream is attainable.
