We’ve all done things in our lifetime which upon reflection seem very, very stupid. Some are dumber than others.
Certainly there’s no lack of idiots among us and like many of the things we do, some folks do much dumber things than others.
There’s a railway bridge in Durham, North Carolina dubbed unofficially as the toughest bridge in the world. Standing 11 feet 8 inches high, at Peabody and Gregson Streets, the bridge is a target of sorts. Judging by the video below, it seems like the dim bulbs there actually AIM for it, which is quite funny.
But what you will see is actually pathetic.
Drivers of large trucks and other over-sized vehicles head straight for the bridge despite plenty of warning. Some don’t even slow down despite the yellow warning lights which start flashing on the bridge when the electronic height sensor detects that an approaching vehicle is too tall to safely pass.
And still they come, full speed ahead!
Yes, some of us are certainly dumber than most.
And the Bridge Wins EVERY TIME!
