    • @David C I thought an engineer would be smart enough to figure out from my words that my point is that I find the ring thing silly and embarrassing. I love engineering, don't get me wrong. I went to college for electronic engineering and then computer engineering before ending up being drawn into Architecture, but the ring thing always made me cringe a little. You say most don't wear them. In your country maybe that's true. In mine; more common than you might think. Nice chatting with you. All the best.

  • It’s amazing what people can do when they agree not to spend $15 billion on an aircraft carrier but actually build transportation and a tunnel system that connects our world to make it safer. Just think what another $15 billion to do to build schools and hospitals and food share programs around the world to help everyone as opposed to building another aircraft carrier and crap we don’t need

  • One of the biggest problem the tunnel faces right now is the train connection in germany. The whole idea of moving the freight of the road doesnt work, if it cant get to the tunnel in a big capacity in the first place. There wasnt even a plan in place by bavarian politicians on how to build and finance the works needed when i looked into it 1-2 years ago. Dear germany, please invest into your rail network.

Cost $2 trillion, and the lives of 2,500 US and 100,000 Afghans. After 20 years of nation-building, nothing to show for it.

    • Either you didn't pay attention, or you're an idiot. This tunnel will connect Scandinavia with the southern Europe for high speed travel, and transport of cargo. Much faster than the existing Brenner Pass tunnel can do, so yes it have a lot to do with Scandinavia.

I can guarantee you that 90% of goods that will be moved via this tunnel could be produced locally in the countries of destination. In many cases these goods are useless future landfill mass. Stop mindless consumption of Corporate sht and you would not need 11Billion tunnel through the Earth's crust.
