Our world is too quick already. We're all too 'extraordinary'

We dont spend time to take care of ourselves, we dont spend time taking care of our relationships.
All we do is run run run, faster faster, fast breakfast, fast bus, fast pace to the workplace, fast food (lunch), fast drive home, fast shower (you want to leave more time to sit in the sopha)...

Human race = dinosaur race = what happened to dinosours, when they became extraordinary ?

And what if there's more people want to disembark at a station than can be accommodated by the "shuttle"? Doh!

Well, the main point of this I think will be to save all the energy it takes to accelerate a train like that. It's much more easy to just let it keep the same speed all the way, instead of stopping and accelerating on each and every stop. And, if theres a lot of stops, this would actually save a lot of time too, and not only "10 sec", as it saves the time it takes to stop and accelerate too.

So I'm assuming the people in the last train are getting off at that station... What if the people at the last train don't want to get off at that stop, do they move to the front? Good idea, but needs work.

Time is more valuable then almost everything else. But, Still quite lazy to simply not to stop the train.
