There are 23, not 21, Subby.

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.

What if I told you that a horny Christina Hendricks is waiting for you on the other side?.


Then I'd call you a liar.

Bridge? That's not bridge, that's god-damned pre-Columbian art.

I don't do well with heights when I can see through what I'm stepping on (fire escapes, certain bridges, drug-induced flights, Joan of Arcesque spiritual ecstacies) I have one photo that I could post but I won't because it is incredibly unflattering of me screaming like a little girl on a bridge like this because some joker decided to make it swing.
 
Good times, good unfortunately documented times.

wax_on: As pointed out several times, many of these look like they're of modern manufacture and probably wouldn't fail if you put an elephant on them. Even the ones that don't look so hot are probably very safe, it's unlikely that anyone has fallen off of one. Human beings find many things out of proportionally scary to their real danger. Take modern passenger airplanes for instance. Compare the probability of a deadly crash in an airplane to the probability of fatal accident in a car. The car is many times more dangerous, yet doesn't feel so.


I work at an airport and remind people this daily. Of the thousands that we toss up every day how many don't come back? It makes the news. Now how many died in car accidents that day? Same thing with Muslims. One, ok a few but they are mostly drunk, of the locals says he gets nervous when he sees Muslims at the airport. I called him a pussy and a moron, oh and a pussy for good measure. I was slammed by a deer in front of the airport. I am far more afraid of deer than any Muslim. Last time I checked Muslims don't have antlers, can't gore you and don't come flying into the driver's window.

The Vancouver bridge they show is either Capilano suspension bridge or Lynn Canyon suspension bridge. Both are totally safe and sturdy. Lynn Canyon is in a provincial park. Capilano is a tourist trap.

It's the area surrounding both those bridges that are lethal. Every year tourists step out to see the view "....just one more step" or hop a fence to snap a photo and they tumble over the cliff. locals all have their "it's totally safe from here, brah!" places for cliff diving which often are not so totally safe.

Both areas are filled with "here's who fell and died here" plaques and markers.

The Phillipine bridges are prety freaky, but that Pakistani one sends chills up my spine. It doesn't look like it'd take much for the bridge to droop right into the water. Cold muddy water just waiting to suck you away.

This one's more terrifying than most of the ones in the article.

What is the proper procedure for a person that trips and falls into a seated position in the middle of the bridge with their balls wedged between the slats?

I wouldn't go over a lot of those, but I don't see the big fuss over a lot of them. You think in mountainous areas with not much money or people they're going to build you a multi lane highway?

Typical bridge I crossed in Nepal when there- I liked to tease girly tourists by shouting "wow this sure looks rickety!" but there were concrete pylons and steel wires, very well done.

I've been on some bridges like that. Of the ones pictured, some look modern and strong, and wide enough to ride my bike across with no hands. Others, no way I'm stepping out on them.

The one in Loboc Philippines looks beautiful, a wonderful design of strength and rustic charm.
