tittle says it all. Hi, Kevin H. here

and why dont we have a bridge connecting North America and Asia/Russia

this would be good opensourced

Zorbing http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zorbing
Pretty much as described [csea, Dec 19 2012]

Tsunami Lifesaving LTA Backpack This could also be useful. Perhaps that's what vtolled meant in 'bulb'? [pashute, Oct 23 2014]

       Because American's don't want to go to Asia/Russia.

       The inflatable ball would work better outside since there is less building above it to fall down on it and pop it.   

       It is not too late to change your username to Tittle.

       // American's don't want to go to Asia/Russia. //   

       Wrong. They do.   

       What they don't want is Asians and Russians to come to America.

       So not so much a bridge, but a valve.
bungston, Jun 25 2010

       Welcome to the halfbakery.
Voice, Jun 25 2010

       Indeed, but how did he get over the bridge ?   

       <stares hard at [bungs]>

       d'uh- the earthquake bounced him over in the ball!!
What [Voice] said. (I usually say it.)
(second paragraph/sentence needs a question mark- no?)
xandram, Jun 25 2010

       Your second paragraph/sentence, or [vtolled]'s ?
8th of 7, Jun 25 2010

       You mean [tittle]'s?
daseva, Jun 25 2010

       I want to know how you "opensource" a bridge...
Custardguts, May 09 2012

       Aren't most wars open-sourced?
not_morrison_rm, May 09 2012

       Is this three ideas in one? A bulb a ball and a bridge (and a tittle)? Or is the bulb in the tittle the ball in the deskripton to be bounced on the bridge.   

       Isn't Siberia on the Alaskan side considered Europe?   

       What's the H? And how do you vtoll somebody?   

       Would the Chinese agree to a bridge above their country with millions of Americans passing on it on their way to a wonderful life in Russia, and wouldn't the Kirgizstanians shoot it down?   

       All these questions and more can be solved with a simple earthquake.
pashute, Dec 17 2012

       // And how do you vtoll somebody?//   

       By invoking the vtoll command from the command prompt, obviously …   

       vtoll name [-ddate] [-ttime] [-mode]
8th of 7, Dec 17 2012

       We don't have a bridge because the eastern tip of Siberia and the western tip of Alaska are both a thousand miles of terrible roads from anywhere anyone cares to visit.
WcW, Dec 17 2012

       There is too a bridge, it's just that it's currently underwater.
normzone, Dec 17 2012

       Anyone know the rupture strength of the plastic used to make Zorbs? [link]
csea, Dec 19 2012

       ]normzone is right. The Mexicans, Inuit, Arapaho and Mohawks crossed it this way, and the Chechens crossed back on it. So there you are.   

       ]custardguts, see link of opensource hardware. It includes open sourcing of houses, of power plants, and other projects, where the plans, management and actual building process are all done voluntarily and publicly.
pashute, Oct 23 2014

       //Because American's don't want to go to Asia/Russia   

       Hawaii, Guam, Saipan?
not_morrison_rm, Oct 23 2014

       //open sourcing of houses, of power plants, and other projects,//   

       Mmmm. I think you're confusing open sourced ideas and designs, with open source infrastructure megaprojects. The bearing straight bridge that's occasionally discussed would be the single biggest project mankind would have ever undertaken.   

       Would you feel comfortable driving or riding in a train aling an 80km bridge built by volunteers?   

       Anyhow, side point only. Zorbs for earthquake protection? Win.
