Slip Sliiiiding Away….

It’s been a hectic week, what with preparing for our trip to Europe, so I haven’t done jack on my blog lately. You’ll just have to amuse yourself with my BirdieCam and the occasional frag fest. And this.

This came courtesy of my father-in-law Ron, who got it from a friend in Portland. It arrived attached to the following email:

This 3150 m long tunnel in Russia is the longest in-city tunnel of Europe.
There is a river running over it and water leaks at some points.
When the temperature reaches -38 degrees like it did this winter, the road
freezes and the result is the attached video taken during a single day
with the tunnel camera.

I liked the articulated bus. If it had passengers I’ll bet alot of them needed an underwear change!!!!!!!!!!!

Click here to view the movie. It’s in Windows Media format. As usual, my Mac brethren can use the excellent (and free) Flip4Mac to view it.

    So many interesting things about this. I thought the first line odd as it refers to Russia as part of Europe. Odd, having grown up when the USSR still existed, to think of Russia as something other than, well, Russia.

    Next, we have the comment about the tunnel leaking. Really? Russian engineering is sub par? Good thing they don’t design nulcear reactors. Oh, wait…

    The video is hilarious. Looks like california freeways when it rains. I suppose that’s what you get for driving like a BMW owner.
