Do you supposed they'll beat our record for the number of Malaria deaths during this venture?
Honestly, when you posted that I didn't think it was possible. But apparently, it's a thing!

Cost estimates are 40-50 billion (usd) but the actual cost will at least double. China has to get on board and they've shown interest. Russia too. What Venezuela can contribute I can't imagine. They can't even buy bread.

I was just as surprised as you. All I did was a Google search for Venezuela and Canal, just to see if Venezuela had any canals at all, and that was the first thing that popped up. I thought it had to be a joke at first, but it appeared to be legit. Has to be one of the weirdest accidental finds for something I wasn't really looking for. Would be diving into a wishing well in search of quarters and coming up with rubies from One-Eyed Willy's treasure. :D
Such potential!
