NY and London have done something extremely cool for the anniversary of the Brooklyn Bridge - they've opened the tunnel between the cities and put in a window/telescope so you can see the other end!

Hardly anyone knows that a secret tunnel runs deep beneath the Atlantic Ocean. In May 2008, more than a century after it was begun, the tunnel will finally be completed. Immediately afterwards, an extraordinary optical device called a Telectroscope will be installed at both ends which will miraculously allow people to see right through the Earth from London to New York and vice versa.

I love shit like this. Why not set up one of these between Austin and it's sister city Xishuangbanna - i mean - i'm sure the whole tunnel to china thing is pretty well mapped out by now.
