Crazy idea!

	Methinks I have a crazy plan!
	How about this; an underground tunnel, approx 1m across, which
would run from Melbourne, in Oz, under the seabed to California, housing optical fibre cables.
	The distance is about 12000km give or take.
	I guesstimated that tunnelling and optical fibre costs would be
around US$2000 per metre. So that figures to be US$24G.
	I would be interested in any comments on the validity or costings
of such a scheme.
(I reckon' it could be part of a global neural net of super fast data links.)

Thanks, Steve.
