By the way, the YouTube video that Gizmodo links to is quite entertaining, in that sick sort of way.
I saw it months ago and had forgotten about it.
How'd you like to be in the back of the bus?
In that video I cannot figure out where one of the trucks comes from, it's like it just spawns from no-where to land into a near identical truck...
I would be pretty wild! What really made me laugh, however, was the way HE JUST KEPT DRIVING. At no point did the guy slow down or anything... he just kept on going.
Even more amazing, it looked like it straightened out in the end with only one or two bangs.
I loved the two trucks colliding (although I can't figure out where the hell the second truck came from). The best part was how everyone puts on their blinkers to go around it as soon as the trucks skid to a stop - no checking to see if everyone's ok.
What i really can't figure is that the second truck appears to be coming from the oppoiste direct, even though the rest of the video makes that seem impossible...
If they're gonna make a 64-mile long tunnel, they'd better start building some underground McDonald's and gas stations then.
I was thinking the same thing, that truck appears out of no where
The Russians have discovered teleportation technology!
What I'm trying to figure out is, what does Alaska get out of the deal?
Ahh, Russia! Where drinking and driving isn't a crime, it's a sport!
But man. A tunnel connecting the U.S. and Russia. We've come a long way since '91.
So many of the drivers in that YouTube videos look like they just start swerving for fun.
And tha bus looked like a hell of a ride.
Actually, what Russia is going to have to convince the US is WHY the best place to put the US exit/entry would be in the middle of BFE, Alaska. Yes, that's right. I've seen a TV program that highlighted this. The entrance/exit would be in the middle of nowhere, and once in Alaska you'd have SEVERAL HUNDRED MILES if not even more to get to Anchorage or any city. A bridge of similar length is possible, but more exposed to weather and they'd have short building periods in the Berring Strait.
A TUNNEL, wow. Crazy, and even more dangerous. As far as some of the studies have shown the ocean floor in the Berring Strait area is HIGHLY seismic with an average of one to two 3.2 to 5.0 on the Richter scale quakes a year, if not more frequent.
64 miles is nothing when driving.
In about 40years we will be able to use this tunnel, maybe even 20 with out a pass.
"In Soviet Russia, TUNNEL crashes into YOU!"
Anyway, I can see why Russia might want this, but what good will it do the U.S.?
