Back in 1983 a seven-year old boy spotted "James Bond" at Nice airport. He asked his grandfather to get the agent's autograph, but when the old gent came back the boy was disappointed to see the signature "Roger Moore". "Tell him he's signed it wrong," said the boy. The grandfather went back to explain, and then the agent beckoned the boy over. "Shhh!" he said. "I have to sign my name as Roger Moore because otherwise Blofeld might find out James Bond was here. Don't tell anyone, and thanks for keeping my secret." R.I.P. Sir Roger Moore. Thanks for showing us the true meaning of "star".
The Ship Tunnel
Norway is planning to build the world's first tunnel big enough for ships!
It will go through the Stadlandet Peninsular to provide a shortcut which avoids having to sail the long way round a dangerous stretch of coatstline.
Length = 1.7km (over 1 mile)
Width = 36m
Height = an awesome 49m !
To make it they will need to blast out 8,000,000 tonnes of rock and it will cost about £250,000,000 (that's $320m)
Here's a message to our Norwegian friends ... Lykke til! We read this in The Week April 2017.
