oh, you want to talk STRAIT?


Recommended Posts

not George [i]or[/i] +gh: they are going to build a [url=http://www.eraa.ru/eraaeng/bridge.htm]bridge[/url] from Spain to Africa at the Strait of Gibraltar. the artist's renderings look awesome. oil is the #1 reason, but this is still pretty amazing. but wait... what about the Bering Strait? too far? they're saying it could be a bridge or tunnel, but [i]this[/i] connects the world. New York to Paris would be high speed train through Canada, across the Alaska/Siberia bridge/tunnel, through Asia and into Europe. again, it's about oil. a centuries-discussed bridge from Italy to Sicily might happen soon, too. of course it's also about oil. kick-ass olive oil. ;)

Between the Mars photos coming back and talk of these big spans possibly going up, it's all good. But, I'm not so sure about the safety of a bridge across the Bearing straits, being so close to a fault line. -and I sure wouldn't want to be half way across that sucker (in my Yugo) when one of those Arctic storms kick up.

In two days, it won't matter.
