    898 million? Looks like someone's confident that Covid is long gone. It also looks like they know something we don't.

    Come on... aren't you the least bit suspicious?

    Not remotely suspicious. Building projects are still in progress around the globe, including places where people will socialise like this one. And considering it won’t be open until 2024 at the earliest... I don’t understand what you’re even remotely suspicious about. Would you like to clarify please?

    Now someone just need to make a proper game for me to play.

    Denmark just broke ground on the 8.2 billion USD Femern belt tunnel to Germany, AFAIR it will be the longest immersed tunnel in the world.
    4 lanes for vehicles and 2 RR tracks as i recall.

    Perhaps you didn't get the reference. The poster I replied to mentioned 'Corvid'.

    'Murder' is the term of venery used to denote a group of crows (corvids). Thus, I was joking.

    Hope that clears things up.

    Covid Lockdowns aren't a thing in much of Asia and many other parts of the World.

    Esports and its meteoric rise is the "getting old" and out of touch moment for me.
