Which is best, going underneath - or going over the top?

Bridge's are better. Dutch bridges are the betterest.

A bridge too far?

Tunnels are cool, but bridges are the bestest because they have designs to them. Tunnels are just holes in the ground.

Plus, you get radio reception on a bridge.

Bridges:

Promote Suicide
Intefere with shipping/traffic
Mr G can design them?!
They're Wobbly
The expand in the heat and get stuck.

Tunnels:

Promote claustrophobia
Exacerbate SAD
Form pollution sinks
Become vermin havens
Can provide gateways into the world above for dragons, Cthulhu and long-buried alien invaders
They expand with tremors and collapse
Interfere with foundations and cause structural damage
Kill worms

I have seen some pretty damn fine Dutch bridges, but I still like tunnels. Its a Pennsylvania thing.

Zmama's West Virginia Bridge - a fine looking bridge - its the one they used to bungee drop the SUV from on that old TV commercial

The tunnel is less impressive.

Oh don't be ridiculous...look at the breathtaking beauty of the Blackwall or Dartford tunnels ;)

Switzerland is supposed to have some fantastic tunnels. What with the mountains and all, I believe it.

This one is so deep its HOT instead of cold. How sweet is that?

I guess I meant the Alps, not just Switzerland.

This time round fear is in the air again. The operators reckon on one death per kilometre, an international average according to statistics.:eek:

And isn't there that cute little new Dutch bridge? The one complete with a Dutch troll underneath looking up lady's dresses.

Which is good, cause otherwise we'd have to hack into the neighbours wireless.

Back in Brunel's day, the death rate on tunnels was about 500 per mile.

I've got to say. I like that about tunnels.

The article sounds like some kind of plot line for a joke. African's giving orders, German's hammer away and the Portugese Drill.

Venom

What the hell are the Africans giving orders for? Is it a coup tunnel?

After every kilometer the tunnel guys dig, the tunnel flips out and kills someone! Totally sweet!
