HSRs should all have these kinds of options. They'll be competing with airlines!

You know what would be really awesome..either a hot tub and or swimming pool

It would be a in double decker car, where the top level is the deck of the pool and the bottom level is occupied by the steel pool structure. The top part would be either a glass dome, or open air.

First Class in German ICEs have individual TVs with choice between two movies and usually 4 radio stations piped to a headphone socket every seat.

I remember in Melbourne were in the public trams, some night you will have public entertainers riding them (probably without the approval of the tram company), once had a bingo session going on in a tram hosted by the girls scout where the prizes were cheap trinkets and free to enter, made my journey home much more enjoyable!
