and where will this tunnel transport us to/from...our sister land....CHINA?!
Miss Teen South Carolina? Is that you? Trans Atlantic would take us to the UK or Europe. Would have to be trans Pacific to get near China.

Considering the cost and problems with the "Big Dig" in Mass I don't see how this is feasible. We are talking a much larger scale project, deeper waters and multiple countries working together. What are the odds?
Maybe they could make windows so tourists could check out Titanic. HEY! that could be the first "in transit" movie.

Friday's right. I live in Mass and travel through the "Big Dig" tunnels everyday. They did not correct the problem of congestion, they leak constantly, someone died whn the ceiling panels collapsed because of shoddy workmanship. All I've gotten from those stupid tunnels is a longer commute, higher tolls (which are going to go even higher), the possibility of a 19 cent gas tax, and a state in the throws of a multi million dollar deficit which is affecting the school budget my children need so they can learn how to take the MCAS test! Stupid government.
I really don't see a Trans Atlantic tunnel going any better.
