Would you walk on this???

Alright....enough template tinkering for one evening....that stuff can get quite addicting I must say!!

So without further ado.....here is another amazing sight (although very different from the glasswing butterflies) I received in an email the other day............


The Glass Bridge Construction of the Skywalk began March of 2004 and is estimated to be completed by 4th quarter of 2006. Glass Bridge will be suspended 4,000 feet above the Colorado River on the very edge of the Grand Canyon.


On May 2005, the final test was conducted and the structure passed engineering requirements by 400 percent, enabling it to withstand the weight of 71 fully loaded Boeing 747 airplanes (more that 71 million pounds). The bridge will be able to sustain winds in excess of 100 miles per hour from 8 different directions, as well as an 8.0 magnitude earthquake within 50 miles. More than one million pounds of steel will go into theconstruction of the Grand Canyon Skywalk.


What do you think? Would you walk on this??

12 peeps just sayin':

Yes I would, but only before dinner.

Trish said...

That worst case scenario? Sounds like a pretty bad day...

I might walk on it after a couple of those tropical drinks you got pictured here.

New theme looks great by the way :-)

Love the new look. :)

I would not walk on that thing for any amount of money. I think it's safe, but heights terrify me.

BTW - Why am I not linked on your "Daily Reads" sidebar? Do you not want people to know that I am your friend? :(
