10. The Channel Tunnel connects Great Britain to France. It follows the English Channel, also called the Strait of Dover. The hardest decision people have to make is what to eat on the train! After all, it's hard to decide between tea and macarons!
9. From 1988-1994, the time while the bridge was in construction, the Nagorno-Karabakh War was occurring. This affected the "Chunnel"(a nickname for the bridge) because other tanks and countries plotted to destroy the bridge, in construction and after construction. "In your face!", Great Britain laughed, until their side of the tunnel flooded and had to be rebuilt.
8. Water pushes on the tunnel's sides. For the people in the tunnel, there is a chance that the tunnel will collapse from pressure and that you will die... NO pressure! Also, there are many fires that occur in this tunnel. It's totally safe!
7. The structure of the tunnel is a tri-tunnel form. There are 3 tunnels, of which only 2 are used for transportation. The middle one is an escape route. This is rather strange because 3 is an unlucky number in Hinduism. What does this mean? It means that the Channel Tunnel is in grave danger!!!!
6. Albert Mathieu designed the Channel Tunnel and asked Transmanche Link Engineering Firm to build it. I can't think of a joke for this fact...so...can you guys just pretend it's funny?! PLEASE?!
