Hello again, ATS,
Here is a rather interesting idea, and one apparently proposed by Russia's Vladimir Yakunin.
The idea is to build a super highway that would stretch from London, all the way over to New York City. It's called the Trans-Eurasian Belt
Development (TEPR), and it was unveiled during a meeting at the Russian Academy of Science in Moscow.
A road that would stretch roughly 8,064 miles (12,978km).
Could you imagine driving from NYC to London? Aside being on the road for a week, and spending several hundred dollars in Gas.. Would you drive it?
You would go through some interesting territory. Parts of Russia that rarely get seen by the rest of the world.
It would also open up the interesting possibility of being invaded, finally. Not from the Southern Border, mind you, but from the north.
Granted, that could easily be dealt with by blowing up the bridge, mind you, in the middle of the Bearing Sea...
This would be interesting to have a Maglev train run parallel to this road..
Perhaps we could put google's self-driving cars on it?
Would you drive it?
I'd love to, just once.. I've always wanted to go over and have a pint in a pub in London, as well as see Red Square in Moscow.
Hmm.. Wonder who is gonna pay for this all, especially since several of the involved countries are all not on the best terms.
