      I also have problems understanding him, but it‘s not because of the music, but because of his articulations and my lack of language knowledge. I hear ‚schpeed trainsch‘ when he says ‚speed trains‘ and I think I just have to get used to it. Otherwise great documentation.

    I still remember the first time my family took the Öresundsbron instead of the ferry. We went to Germany from Sweden atleast two times a year for vacation and I always looked forward to the ferries. Even as a ferry lover I was in awe the first time we drove onto the new bridge. It was massive, looked beautiful and as a kid, my mind went wild trying to figure out how the under water tunnel was made. I had a very similar feeling of awe when I took the train over the bridge the first time even though I was a teen by then. It's been a joy seeing the man made islands flora expand and see how much easier many peoples lifes has become. This new project will come with good, bad and neutral consequences and although some can be foreseen, many simply can't be. I still belive this project will end up helping more than it's harming and I can't wait for the awe I will feel the first time I travel through this mindblowing feat of engineering.

      I remember closely following upset environmentalists when Øresundsbroen were discussed, and final plans settled. Endless pages with arguments from different specialists on Professor level. As far as I know, not one single of these highly qualified specialists well argumented /documented concerns came true!
      Some concerns about negative influence on nature and society turned out completely opposite, or at least easily compensated during natural human flexibility and adaption.
      Since then I realised some experts might be highly qualified academics, but not necessarily connected to an ever changing complex reality. 😎

      I steamed across the straight from Warnemünde to Trelleborg and back in Oct-Nov 1998. I dropped a friend off in Malmö on my way to Otterbäcken. I was on the Mecklenber-Vorpommern and returned on the other one, forgot its name. Overnight, in a cabin. One of my favourite ways to travel. Unfortunately trip a bit too short. Would have been better if 9 hours would have gotten a proper night's sleep!
      The friend going to Malmö was picking up another ferry to København. None of this Baltic Undersea Tunneling had been completed yet,

    Spot-on! As a retired Chartered Civil Engineer, I was always peeved that people thought Architects built bridges etc. But it seems it has taken an architect to do what many civil engineers find difficult, to explain the complexities, in lay-mens terms of a large infrastucture project.

      Not really. "There are concerns..." followed by "oh well they'll forget about it" is not very far away from "the biggest project ever!"
      There are many megastructures that had devastating effects on their surroundings, decades or even a century later. You can trivialize the impact, but that doesn't make facts go away.

      @ZZZ MIKEYLIKEY OMG, We don’t build infrastructure based on a notion or consideration of illegal migration because that’s not why we build them, we all build links to other countries to make working and living different places a possibility. Allowing business access to people, resources and competence they need, and for people to visit there family and friends and for creating viable communities along borders where these links are placed, where people from higher cost of living countries, buy products across the border where the cost is lower. Creating livable areas along borders for retail businesses for example. It’s a win for everyone no matter have you look at it.

Wow!

Long bridges always make me nervous when crossing. The 7 mile bridge in the Florida Keys and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel (17.6 miles with two 1 mile tunnels) are both unnerving. Being in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay almost 9 miles from shore made got me.

      For tunnels like this one, they expect them to contract in winter and have to plan expansion joins that take up the slack every season. Keeping expansion joins water tight is an additional problem, probably solved by that seal between segments that was so briefly described.

    The thing that _really_ needs work is the tunnel segment factory. It seems to me what you want to do is make that whole setup portable. If you designed the whole assembly line to be easily packed up and redeployed somewhere else you could do all kinds of underwater tunnel projects around the world. In fact, you could have the whole concrete factory packed up on to a small fleet of cargo ships so that they could just turn up at the exact piece of coastline where they'll start work.

      It's not that easy unfortunately, how would you even pick up stuff like this? And you have to flatten the working area before assembling the factory, so you still have to do a LOT of work

      Unfortunately, most of those UAclipsrs that use stock videos simply don't have the sort of clout and access The B1M has, so it's not as achievable for them to simply visit an active construction site.

    I am currently crying so hard right now. This is seriously the most beautiful, well put together story ever. I can’t believe how magical it was 1:12. That part truly made me shed a tear. And especially at 6:34 that part was just so truly heart touching words can not describe the series of emotions I felt. I absolutely loved the climax it had insanely excellent detail. Oh and we can’t forget the conclusion. The conclusion was the greatest and saddest conclusion I have ever seen better than any of the books I have read. Thank you so much for creating this absolute masterpiece. This is essentially the most important masterpiece of film history. It is a tragedy that this, it can’t be called a film, but a transcendent emotional experience, will be inaccessible for most. It beautifully encapsulates the human struggle to its basics; suffering, pleasure, faith, despair. It connects with the characters within the viewers, individuals suppressed within our own subconscious. It stays vibrant, fresh, and revolutionises the art of storytelling and filmmaking while making a damn of statement on what it means to be human. Entertaining, gripping, and simply exhilarating. This might be the most impactful piece of art I’ve come across in my life, and I’m definitely coming back to it in the near future to study it more deeply. this is an absolute masterpiece , I was brought to tears listening to this and seeing the bacon go whirly swirly in a circle countless times. it absolutely moved my soul , and i don't think I can ever be the same. this bacon has changed my entire mental state , I am now at peace with who I am and what I will be doing later in my life. i have forgiven all my enemies and now I am a man of a pacifist life. i will move on , gotta move on , as the song says. the bacon is so inspirational , it shares it vast wisdom with all of us , and we are all so lucky that it would bestow it's great words with us. we are all children on bacon. hail bacon. hail bacon. The spinning bacon, rotating in one direction with this music... This made me tear up. How could such a bacon do such a thing? Im struck by awe by this masterpiece. Especially when the bacon spins, showing its lightly salt covered tan skin. I can hear the crunch just from here, and so as the beautiful sound of the bacon scraping the dark, smooth velvet floor. The flavor, music and everything can be heard, tasted, seen and felt from a screen. You can really hear the breaths between the music artist, empathising her love for this rotating bacon. Truly what I call modern art. This was the most legendary performance by any piece of bacon I have ever watched. The acting was top tier and very life changing. This is one of the greatest work from a piece of bacon I have ever seen especially on 57:42.I am currently crying so hard right now.

The graphics, the animation, the music, so much thought was put into it. This has remined me that you can do anything you put your mind to. Not even mentioning the memories, this makes me feel like an infant again, just laying my eyes on this beautiful masterpiece gives me all the good feelings in life. I also understand what happiness is again from this. Not even to mention the most incredible part that is 2:10. Bacon spinning has changed my life for the better.

It really inspired me to become an outstanding young man. Thank you.

    The Scandinavians built the condeep concrete oil platforms @200,000 tons, 250 meters tall and brought them 150 Km out in the near arctic North-Sea back in the 70’s and 80’s.

It will take a bit of the charm away from the trip when we can't take the ferry anymore, but in the name of progress it has to be done and i can imagine i am one of the few that don't enjoy the ferry trip

    I used to live in Brussels, Belgium, back in the 1990s and one day I decided I'd take a railway trip to Copenhagen. Being a Brit, it never occurred to me to take a passport on a rail journey. Ooops! I got to Puttgarden and the border guards let me through on my way to Denmark. When I got to Denmark the border guards wouldn't let me through. I honestly thought I was going to be stuck on the ferry forever! Luckily, when the ship/train returned to Puttgarden the same guard who had let me through was still on duty and he let me back into Germany. I ended up spending the weekend playing pinball in the Reeperbahn district of Hamburg instead of enjoying the sights of Copenhagen.

      In essence you are paying him and the B1M for this video because you are viewing their content. More views of B1M and Tomorrows Build (B1M sister channel) content equal more income from UAclips adsense, UAclips Premium and sponsorship deals, the channels will have a healthy profit margin, Fred and everyone else working for the channels will be on a decent salary.
