New York And London Finally Connected Via Undersea Tunnel

The telectroscope, a looking-glass tunnel connecting New York and
London has been completed at last, over 100 years after it was
abandoned. The tunnel, which starts in Brooklyn, was designed and
partly executed by late 1800s inventor Alexander Stanhope St. George. A
series of mirrors, cameras and a large underground tunnel, connects the
two cities. More details about the scope and gallery after the jump.

The telectroscope's inventor, St. George, was passionately committed to
the idea of being able to connect London and New York without having to
move. He constructed parts of a great shaft which unfortunately
collapsed on many of his workers in 1892. The project was never
completed. His ancestor Paul St. George stumbled upon the original
blueprints and details and brought the telectroscope to life.


Estimated World Population to Pass 6,666,666,666 Today

The estimated population of the world will pass 6,666,666,666 today.
No doubt an interesting number for people everywhere (not referring to
any religion connotations). 5,555,555,555 was passed about 14 years
ago. You may not realize that only a 80 years ago, the population of
the Earth was only around 2 billion.
This shows how the population of the world has increased at an alarming
rate in recent times. Although the growth rate is almost half what it
was at its peak in 1963, when it was 2.2%. Unrelated but also an
interesting coincidence, the estimated number of available IPv4
addresses is getting very close to 666,666,666. It should cross over today as well.
