That tunnel is great because it has no impact on the beautiful scenery of Qingdao. I wished more tunnels and less bridges were built in places with a nice natural surrounding. Within huge river-cities, like Chongqing, Shanghai, Wuhan and Nanjing bridges are just fine, of course.

Sorry for the late response. As far as I know, the north bridge approach (3485m long) has completed, the south cabel tower was finished too, north tower is almost done. The whole project will be completed by the end of 2008.

The bridge is connecting the two major cities in Jiangsu province, Suzhou and Nantong, acrossing the Yangtze River. Will keep post the updates!

Hence, the nationalistic thread title should better read: CHINA - NATION of MEGA Copies!

And to adequately reflect the fact that the PRC is perhaps the greatest copyright violator of all time: CHINA - NATION of MEGA Copyright Violations!

Duh, throughout history we human beings copy things off one another all the time. James Watt's famous steam engine was a copy of somebody else's work but he just made it smaller and more efficient. Japan copied the Chinese language made them into their own. The Japanese parliament during the Meiji period was a direct copy of the German one.

Isn't the world record length span of a suspension bridge more like 1900 metres?

Sutong Bridge is not a suspension bridgea, but a cable-stayed bridge.

Sorry I don't have much data on the Bohai Bay Bridge. As I know, so far it's only a proposal. If the bridge can be built, it'll be the longest one on earth, with 100+km long, connecting Dalian, Liaoning province and Yantai, Shandong Province.

Are you sure?
It is said that it is still alive and stronger than ever.
To the first Roman Empire a second one survived for some one thousand years, with the Eastern Roman Empire (the Byzantine Empire) having Constantinople (now Istambul) as its capital.
Then the empire moved in a land having Moscow, the third Rome, as its capital and in the Romanov dinasty the source of powerful emperors.
When the Romanov’s empire was falling down the Roman Empire moved again in another land: the America.
The fourth Rome is now Washington indeed.

@ copco

Man, where the hell do you get all those infos? Tell me, have you been hit by a shovel in the head? Or are you just high?!

Let me give you an analysis:
Long before the Roman Empire existed, Ancient China was already a flourishing civilization wealthier and more technically advanced than any other civilization at that time. People who lived in Ancient China were known as Chinese.

A couple of centuries after the demise of Alexander's Empire (which brought about the Hellenic Expansion into Asia), a new power rose from the city-state of Rome. It spread its influence to include most of Western Europe as well as parts of North Africa. This new power eventually became the Roman Empire. People who were citizens of the Roman Empire were known as Romans (and people who lived in Rome, the capital, are now currently known as the Italians).

After the fall of the Roman Empire, an Eastern counterpart remained in power. It became known as the Byzantine Empire. The majority of the people who lived within the bounds of the Byzantine Empire's were Greeks.

Meanwhile, Russia expanded its territory to include most of Eastern Europe and North Asia. This territories would constitute present day Estonia, Lithuania, Ukraine, Finland , and much more. The large swathe of land North of Asia that Russia took eventually become known as Siberia. The Romanovs have no connection whatsoever with people from the Byzantine Empire.

In the late 1940s, long after the Romanov's of Russian were all executed by the Bolshevik Revolutionists, the same race of people reside in China's borders. Their civilization continued to exists ever since the first Chinese Dynasty. The people, however, had a new form of government headed not by Emperors but by Communist Leaders. Thus, the People's Republic of China came into being. This, however, cannot be compared to the creation of another civilization but mere ly a change of phase for the same civilization. China also experienced massive decline in standard-of-living and technological advancement. Infact, for nearly 200 years, China became a "hermit" kingdom and it's economy was in a state of decay and stagnation. It became purely in-ward-looking as well as moribund. Despite all this, Red China was still being a Totalitarian-state, the people who reside within the its borders were still known as Chinese.

After a painful "Cultural Revolution" and after the "Great Leap Forward", China began its market reforms. After merely three-decades of rapid transformation, China slowly became a mixed-economy incorporating both command and market systems into its economy. Torrid economic expansion accompanied this transformation pushed China to become more open to trade nad investment and globally outward-looking.

In the turn of the 21st Century, China has bounced back and is slowly regaining its lost glory. It has once again become a major force in the world economy and global politics. Its unprecedented rise back into world "superpowerdom" comes at a point when America, with its unquestioned global political clout and economic hegemony, is slowly wanning. The hyperpower that America currently will give way to a more dynamic China in this century.

And no way is America and Americans, for that matter, directly linked with the Romans!
