Depends on the distance and rock type. New York City has tons of ship traffic, and all kinds of bridges and tunnels. But the rock there is good hard schist and gneiss. I worked in mining for years, and in one salt mine you could see the walls of the shafts and tunnels bow out from the rock pressure. In coal mines, there are rock bursts, where the pressure of the rock above blows out the wall, so you always walk in the middle of the tunnel.

Well, they paid for that with taxes. Believe me, you'd rather have our taxes than theirs. So I say our bridges are just fine.

Ask and you will receive:

In Sweden taxable income belongs to one of three categories: earned income from employment, income from capital or income from business.


Income from employment

The following taxes are levied on earned income:

local tax at a rate of 26-35 percent (depending on the municipality),
national income tax of 20-25 percent on annual taxable earnings.


Income from capital

Generally speaking all income in this category is taxed at a rate of 30 percent regardless of the amount. Examples of income from capital are dividends, interest, capital gains arising from the sale of stocks, bonds, real estate, personal property and other similar assets plus income from the rental of flats or houses unless this is undertaken as a business activity.


Income from business

The regulations governing taxation of business activity are largely the same for limited companies and businesses operated by individuals. As a general rule, all income from business activities is liable to taxation. Income from capital is considered as part of the business activity if it is generated by capital invested in the business.

The tax rates for individuals engaged in business activities are the same as those for income from employment. On the other hand, limited companies pay only 28 percent of their taxable income in tax.

They are higher then ours, but not to much higher. :dthumb:

Very cool! :dthumb: Just a thought though....What happens when the water level gets extremely high. Does it flood over and go down the tunnel, or does that not effect it? :confused:

I don't think the water level gets high enough to effect that being that far out in the ocean. There would have to be an awful lot of rain or unless the northern pole ice caps melt. If that happen...were all screwed then. :dthumb:

what about bad storms, ocean swells, etc...its gotta get waterlogged atleast some of the time right? Even being not-technically out to sea, when the sea gets ruff, from the residual affects of storms, its gotta do something to it.

Only when there are 25+ft waves will it get over to hit the lot that is around the tunnel and it even has an extra 5 ft barrier around it to protect it. (I looked it up and got the answers.) :dthumb:
