1/2 mile long suspension footbridge 312 feet up

All the news from the peanut gallery and where all the nasty trash talk fails miserably.
It can get NSFW-ish here: you have been warned!

A new world record. Its in the Czech Republic. They said this thing only cost $8 million to build, which seems pretty damn cheap to me. I wonder how much it sways in the middle?

Fuck that noise. If I had had enough to drink to attempt walking out there I wouldn’t be able to walk.

Hmm. You could have bars at both ends where people drink until they get the courage up. You'd make way more on the alcohol than whatever they charge for admission.

you wouldn't trust your life out 1/2 a mile in the air, 300 feet above ground to be suspended by something built by the lowest bidder in the Czech Republic?

Did they even calculate how many people could be out walking on it at one time?

Wouldn't it have been cheaper to just build more bathrooms.

I would cross that in a heart beat.

And I would be the prick in the middle trying to rock it. 8-)

A small east Iowa town has a 50 yard wooden suspension bridge I refused to walk over. Hell, I white-knuckled driving on the Golden Gate bridge.

This..., no.
If you can't be a good example, you can still serve as a horrible warning.
