nyc to london?  

yes. a Bering Straits tunnel is cost effective,
and Sarah Palin should be able to afford this out of pocket change ; - }

i wonder if the $7 billion annual income estimate,
considers the cost of snow and ice removal in the cold season
thousands of miles of track to keep open



oh, you want the Atlantic?  
get back to me when the UK to Ireland tunnel is done

Mid-Atlantic Rift. Better make that tunnel out of something really stretchy.

well now there you go, assuming i can answer these questions that have to do with fact and reason.  i just want the world, man.  if the world were given to me, the owners of the islands would all be....me, and i am always certain that i as an owner will always be okay with whatever i want.



and if through some bizare means of fate i actually DO ge the world, you'll want to be ever so nice to me should you ever want there to be a len tower-tunnel named after you.

the cheapest to construct route probably goes through Iceland,
so the stretching would be above ground

using lasers to enrich uranium is looking a lot more practical:    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44216898/ns/technology_and_science-the_new_york_times/#.TlCKIF3ayus

as with anything uranium-related, there's a downside as well.
