Why can't we have this in the U.S. instead of spending money all the bad public art?

Weird. I like it.

52 meters, subby.

and subby tells everyone he is 8"
 
2012-12-07 08:31:19 AM
I'm sure subby meant to say 52 Brobdingnagian miles.
 
2012-12-07 08:34:18 AM
And this is why we can't have nice things like the metric system. People like subby would cause mass confusion.

Lawsuits.

100x times so for that Parisian trampoline bridge. Talk about a death trap. It'd be awesome, unless you really just wanted to get to work, but it'd also likely injure and kill people. The legal system in the US would prevent either of these as massive liabilities.

Lilliputian. The Brobdingnagians were giants -- their miles would be much longer than ours.

Agreed. That bridge looks awesome, but so many people would get so very, very hurt.

themindiswatching: 52 meters, subby.


And they say we don't need to learn the metric system in the US.

I hate to be "that guy", but this is only a great idea until the lawsuit happy mother of some snowflake comes along to sue it out of existence.

Subby's 'Murican, by Gawd! He don't need no Frenchie metric mumbo jumbo!

WRONG Country. You don't sue in Russia, cause they will take you outside & literally beat some since in to you. At least in the old Russia.

The bridge is a toy, not a serious bridge.

Are the girls in that pic wearing only a shirt and underwear? I wish they showed a picture of the thing.
 
2012-12-07 09:45:45 AM
Aw, man! The mods fixed the headline. Now we can't pick on subby any more for a lack of metric understanding.

It's a light-hearted romp of a bridge, really. Tongue-in-cheek travel, that's what I like - none of this grave locomotion for me. Now, the Golden Gate Bridge, well, that's a serious bridge. Can't joke with it, won't lighten up - it just sits there, stolid, swaying gently, as solid as a chartered accountant with a wife and one kid.

Nah, give me a bridge with a bit of whimsy any day.

Don't let my kids get on this. They would never ever get off, they'd stay on until their hearts give out from exertion... happy as clams.

You, sir, are a git. 

An absolutely correct git, but a git nonetheless.

Yep. My first thought after RTFA was "Holy shiat that looks awesome!" followed immediately by "but it would never even get built in this country because of overly litigious assholes".

/ haven't been on a trampoline in nearly 20 years, but I know without a doubt I would still thoroughly enjoy it

In some previous version of Russia, trampoline bounces on you?

This looks both incredibly dangerous and totally farking awesome.

A certain part of Russia where they do it.

I did see it, but the care factor wasn't that high. Thanks for doing that though.
