A bridge too far!

Last week we reported on the US state apparently sitting on a fortune of $3.5 billion dollars  so perhaps they could pass some of this surplus dosh over to California where it seems they have built a “billion dollar” bridge to nowhere!

Back in 2008 the state government announced plans for a high speed rail link between Los Angeles and San Francisco expected to cost over $100bn, but so far construction has only begun on the earliest phase.

The California High-Speed Rail Authority recently confirmed that back in 2018 they completed 0.3mile stretch of bridge called, The Fresno River Viaduct in Madera County. 

On its own this bridge cost US$1bn but pictures issued by the Authority reveal that it is connected to nothing at either end. 

It actually runs over an existing road, close to a number of houses and parallel to another rail line.

Reportedly there are over 100 miles undergoing active construction – but if it’s ever completed – it won’t come into service until the early 2030’s, and scrapping it entirely remains a distinct possibility.

Later on today’s show we reported on a film that you’ll probably never get the chance to see. 

Indeed there is every likelihood that you’ll actually die before you even get a chance to see it because it’s not due to be released until 18th November 2115, even though it was actually filmed in 2015.

The film stars John Malkovich and is directed by Spy Kids and From Dusk Till Dawn‘s Robert Rodriguez.

It’s somewhat appropriately titled 100 years and is a promotion for Louis XIII Cognac, which we are reliably informed takes 100 years to age properly before being put on the market for consumers to sample.

Global Executive Director for  Louis XIII Cognac, told Guardian Life that  “Louis XIII is a true testament to the mastery of time, and we sought to create a proactive piece of art that explores the dynamic relationship of the past, the present, and the future.”

Apparently four generations of cellar masters put a lifetime of passion into a bottle of Louis XIII, yet they’ll never get to taste the resulting masterpiece!

So far numerous “teasers’ for the film have been made each showing a different vision of what 2115 may be like including “An incredibly high tech, beyond computerised version of the world, a post-Chernoybl, back to nature, semi-collapsed civilisation, and then there’s a retro future which showing was how the future was imagined in science fiction of the 1940s or 50s.”

Well I never!

Anyway all being well I hoper to see you again tomorrow,
