Not to mention the bridge being covered with loonies with swords, trying to play Don Quixote to the Gubbermint dragon.

Chariset: It was designed by an American firm.  Get your American city with a river to buy one and you can have one too.


It was designed by Americans to commemorate the liberation of the city of Da Nang from the... Americans.  I guess they're officially "over it."

This is a late parrot: The fire was cool and all but, I would have liked to seen the whole bridge either in daylight or lit up at night.

 Wouldn't work in America. People would just shoot the dragon.

FTFA: The bridge was designed by American firm Louis Berger Group, costing more than 1.7 trillion Vietnamese dong

Godscrack: That's really cool. No, they would never allow that here in the states.

The evangelicals and other religious crackpots would protest it as some satanic symbol.

Or find some other stupid legal reason.


I'd be looking for ways to sue someone over it. It's the American way.

elchupacabra: Don't they have those at Monster Truck Rallies?


I suddenly find myself designing a bridge in my head.  One that links, EZ Pass, a fire breathing dragon and Truck-a-saurus car crushing functionality together to create automated toll enforcement.  It could also be fun to link it to a radar gun and pick off late night street racers assuming truck-a-saurus has enough functionality.
