Theres been a proposed bridge from Singapore/Malaysia to Indonesia for years..... and being one of the most populas nations not sure why you are not including it. And it is quite feasible. Connecting Sumatra, Java all the way to E Nusa island.... with bridges. >_>

They need to build a road to the end of the Earth in Antarctica to make everyone shut up about this globe flat earth debate. But they wont do it because their stupid treaty they created when they closed off the interior of antarctica because they discovered the end in the 1940s and 1950s.

This video is kinda BS. North and South America are not connected because the United States does not approve. Israel-Palestine divides Africa from Asia. The US will not allow a tunnel, bridge and road system between two Russia and Alaska.
