District of What?

I had to fly to Washington D.C. about a month ago for a secret government meeting that concerned several mysteries and forbidden questions. I'd love to tell you all about it but I think you'd be bored.

The nation's capitol has an interesting travel relationship to New York City. In addition to the bird-like aeroplanes we all enjoy, one may also take this new mode of transportation called a loco-railtrain-motive™. Its a brand new concept wherein energy is generated via the logical properties of magic, and giant metal cars are propelled across a track that was laid down in advance of the departure.

Honestly, I don't trust trains. The technology is just too new. Your shackled to only one course of egress, wherein a plane you can go in all six known directions and even 2 of the 10 unknown directions. Besides, in a train, you can get up and walk around whenever you want, there is a dining car where you can eat whenever and whatever you want, the food is higher quality normal food, there is no security line, you have internet and cell reception for the whole trip, and it costs half as much as a flight. Why would you want all of those things when you can ride in an airplane and possibly get upgraded?

Its a 45 minutes flight and a 3 hour train ride. And this is the upgraded first class seat I got:

And this is a typical train seat:

You tell me which one you'd choose? If you chose train, you're incredi-wrong™!
