Re: Favourite Youtube videos v2.0

Me, i always wonder why anyone would ever want to try using air as the kinetic energy transfer medium for a TRAIN. It's ALWAYS less efficient than doing it through the wheels, and you can't get a higher speed than the rails allows you anyway so it's not like you can save on the rail costs or anythin...

Lol, ducks learning to wait for green light... Not surprising that it happened(bound to happen eventually), but funny.

Re: Are the current era Senshi their only reincarnations?

I don't think it's ever been stated either yes or no. So unless someone knows something i missed, it's impossible to say.
