Japanese Cleaning Crews Clear A Whole Bullet Train In Just 7 Minutes

How's this for efficiency? The Shinkansen Bullet Train in Japan is a wonder of the modern world. The favored form of transportation, connecting passengers from Tokyo throughout Japan's other major cities and main islands, is nearly flawless. From the giant silver bullet-shaped design, to the on-the-second punctuality and incredible speeds (up to 320 kilometers, which converts to roughly 198 miles per hour). The speed is impressive in itself, but the safety record - no fatal accidents in it's history - makes it that much more amazing.

It's no surprise such a marvel would also be a lean, clean machine. A small crew gets a whole car spotless in seven minutes. Sound impossible? Just watch.
