      yup cut the diameter - less cost -less work, smaller boring machine. With self-driving cars talking to each other you don't need wide roads and no exhaust no additional things for ventilating- this also allows us to make them of any lengths.

    The future is a series of improbability. The future perspective of Elon, Jeff, Bill, Bernard or Mark and the world that they set up for the future does not save the present. And the illusion of anxiety about the future that they try to make us believe means nothing to humanity. Every day thousands of children die of hunger, rape, slavery and unhealthy conditions. This army of rich snobs should spend not just a small part of their income, but half of them on behalf of humanity. It should be kept under control by bringing an upper limit to wealth. Otherwise, the bad guys we watch in Batman and Superman movies will take over this world and the world begins to pass more difficult days than predicted. The guys I mentioned at the beginning have already started raising candidates for these villains. Because those children did not see how this wealth was achieved. They were close to seeing themselves as gods.
