    Tunnel between Russia and Alaska???

    For only 10-12 billion dollars. Heck, I could sell them a bridge for a lot cheaper then that!

    Looks the same with the idea about constructing the elevator between the earth and orbit.
    Я так думаю.

    Nevertheless, such projects exist. See:

    I will not use this tunnel. Too many undersea volcanoes for me!

    По-моему, проще на самолете долететь. И не надо через всю Россию тащиться до вагона.

    Ramil, этот проект существует уже давно. По крайней мере, лет тридцать. Я про него вспомнил, потому что о нём статью в Вокруг Света прочёл. Проект по многим причинам на данный момент невыполним.

    А насчёт катания в Америку на электрическом поезде, это будет здорово. Поезд Москва-Джуно будет ехать дней восемь-девять, и будет пользоваться особой популярностью у любителей русского экстрима.
    Я так думаю.

    к тому времени когда тоннель пророют, в россии появятся скоростные поезда на электромагнитой подушке, так что хватит и одного дня (впрочем, жить в эту пору прекрасную не доведется ни мне ни тебе (с) )

    Why? To shop?
    Well, I don't know what to say. I want to say thanks to the Academy, to Mama, to Papa and to my dog. I love you all.
