Rev.K: [s3-ec.buzzfed.com image 850x588]Ok. Why not?
Dinjiin: [images109.fotki.com image 800x600]This bridge in Switzerland was long enough that the wind would cause it to sway. But mostly, the number of people walking on it caused harmonics, making the deck dance as you moved towards the center. I actually felt better looking down at the central point than I did looking towards either end.
wademh: 5, 6 12, 16, 19.Anyone score higher than 5?Must do 14, 21 and 23. Added to my bucket list.
The Voice of Doom: sumida sublightMaybe it's just a trick of perspective, but I don't see what's scary about #17. It looks about 5-10 meters long and maybe 2-3 meters above the ground.Nope, lame. Side view:[i.imgur.com image 800x534]
gerbilpox: There are 23, not 21, Subby.[picardlights.jpg]Most pics don't show what's beneath, which can be more terrifying. For example, the Grand Canyon Skywalk is supposed to be able to support 71 loaded 747s or a 8.0 earthquake -- but there is no farking way I could set foot on a glass-bottomed bridge 2/3 mile up.[static.designlike.com image 600x399]
Tenatra: SugarPlumFarie: JonBuck: #8. No. No nononono. And further, NO.Um, yeah.What the hell is going on to the left? Is that the bridge that used to be there that obviously came to a bad end?Hey look at this video Link, go to 1:07 and you will see a better shot of that area you are questioning.
SirTanon: ... and then there's THIS:[fromdamienwithlove.files.wordpress.com image 500x562]Wider shot here
MeanJean: babtrasI've walked across two of these, and they are absolutely not nearly as scary as people make them sound. I'm a large fellow, but I would gladly walk across 16 of these 23 as long as I am careful with my footing to make sure I don't step in the center of weak boards. Step near the cables and you'll be fine.Step near the cables, you say? I will keep that in mind if I ever have to cross a dubious rope bridge. Thanks for the advice.
MeanJean: My bad with the wording. I'm not scared of a steel cable bridges, just the dubious wood and rope ones.
