    Swiss complete worlds longest tunnel

    That's quite the interesting drill bit they have there. The thing looks like it is from outer space...

    Keep digging those tunnels. One day you will unleash a nest of dragons.

    Re: Swiss complete worlds longest tunnel

    I'm outraged, it's time the U.S. owned the world's longest tunnel claim.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Re: Swiss complete worlds longest tunnel

    After looking at that drill, I am wondering if they came across Kuato or the chick with 3 knockers down there.

    They already do. The Delaware Aqueduct. The swiss just built the longest transportation tunnel.

    Re: Swiss complete worlds longest tunnel

    I have it on good authority that the Swiss actually drove the tunnel drilling machine all the way to Chile to free the miners, but they were a couple days late.

    Then they just drove it back to the Alps and pretended to build some tunnel in the middle of nowhere. That's what I heard anyway.

    Didn't read the article, only looked at the pictures. But I'm pretty sure that's what the tunnel was, finally connecting Switzerland to Chile which was a much needed route.
