Kintaikyo, Iwakuni , Japan 

Bridge 1

The original Kintai Bridge was built in 1673 but collapsed due to flooding.  The rebuilt bridge survived for more than 200 years until a typhoon destroyed it in 1950.  The bridge that stands now over the Nishiki River has five wooden arches displaying an incredible amount of detail and craftmanship.  Interesting fact: no nails or bolts have been used to build the arches, only clamps and wires..

Juscelino Kubitschek Bridge , Brasilia , Brazil

Bridge 2

The JK Bridge in Brasilia is a lesson in elegant bridge design.  The three huge diagonal arches over the deck of the bridge give the structure an amazing visual fluidity.

Rolling Bridge, London , UK

Bridge 3

Thomas Heatherwick's award-winning rolling bridge is an ingenious addition to the grand union canal system in London and is unique.  Unlike regular movable canal bridges, the rolling bridge curls up to form an octagon by way of hydraulic jacks to let ships pass.

Beipanjiang River Railroad Bridge, Guizhou , China

Bridge 4

Beipanjiang River Railroad Bridge in Guizhou is an enormous railway bridge that was built as part of the 'Guizhou-Shuibai Railway Project'.  Connecting two mountains over a deep ravine, at its highest point the bridge's deck sits 918 ft above the ground.  Parenthetically the bridge connects two of the country's poorest areas.

Henderson Waves, Southern Ridges, Singapore

Bridge 5

'Henderson Waves' is Singapore 's highest pedestrian bridge and is at the 'Southern Ridges,' a beautiful 9 km (six miles) stretch of gardens and parks.  The deck of the bridge is made from thousands of Balau wood slats, perfectly cut and arranged, and along the length of the deck a snaking, undulating shell forms sheltered seating areas on every upward curve.

Pont Gustave Flaubert, Rouen , France

Bridge 6

This incredible vertical lift bridge is in Rouen , France , whose spans weigh 1,200 tons each but can be hoisted 180 ft vertically in an impressive 12 minutes.  The angular lift structures at the top of each tower weigh 450 tons each.  The huge vertical lift allows even the largest cruise liners to sail through.

Hegigio Gorge Pipeline Bridge , Southern Highlands Province , Papua New Guinea

Bridge 7

This bridge supports two pipelines; one gas, the other oil, across the extremely deep gap in Papua New Guinea .  If this were to be officially recognized as a vehicular or pedestrian bridge it would rocket to the top of the 'world's highest bridge-span' with the pipelines at an impressive height of 1,290 ft above the bottom of the gorge.  By comparison, the current highest bridge span belongs to the Royal Gorge Bridge in Colorado , hanging a mere 1,053 ft above ground level.


Political Correctness
Thanks to Mark E.

There is an annual contest at Melbourne University calling for the
most appropriate definition of a contemporary term.

This year's term was:

"Political Correctness"

The winner wrote:

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional,
illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream
media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible
to pick up a turd by the clean end."
