China’s Latest Glass-Bottomed Bridge isn’t for the Faint of Heart

by Danny Clemens, Discovery.com

Another glass suspension bridge just opened in China and, well, this one's a doozy. The aptly-named Brave Man's Bridge (or Haohan Bridge) spans almost 1,000 feet over a gaping chasm in central China's Shiniuzhai National Geopark:

According to the South China Morning Post, the original bridge was constructed completely of wood. Park officials installed a single glass pane in the bridge last year to compete with other adrenaline-pumping attractions before eventually deciding to resurface the entire structure with 9-inch-thick panes of glass.

Obviously, nothing would ruin the thrill of staring into 590 feet of emptiness between the bridge and the ground like scuffs, so the brave souls that traverse the bridge are required to don booties to protect the glass.

Possibly the only thing more nerve-wracking than crossing the bridge would be constructing it:

A worker who helped construct the bridge reaffirmed the structure's safety in an interview with the state-owned China News Service:

"The steel frame used to support and encase the glass bridge is also very strong and densely built, so even if a glass is broken, travelers won't fall through."

The Brave Man's Bridge pales in comparison to a similar structure that is currently under construction in Zhangjiajie. According to CNN, that 1,400-foot bridge will stand 1,000 feet off of the ground, earning the designation of being the world's longest and tallest glass bridge.

Paul Lynde Halloween Show


These are whacky Saskatchewan jokes fer ya !

The owner of a golf course in Saskatchewan was confused about paying an invoice, so he decided to ask his secretary for some mathematical help. He called her into his office and said, "You graduated from The University of Saskatchewan and I need some help. If I were to give you $20,000, minus 14%, how much would you take off?"

The secretary thought a moment, then replied, "Everything but my earrings."

{You gotta love those Saskatchewan women.}

A group of Saskatchewan friends went deer hunting and paired off in twos for the day. That night, one of the hunters returned alone, staggering under the weight of an eight-point buck.

"Where's Henry?" the others asked. "Henry had a stroke of some kind. He's a couple of miles back up the trail," the successful hunter replied.

"You left Henry laying out there and carried the deer back?" they inquired.
"A tough call," nodded the hunter. "But I figured no one is going to steal Henry!"

A senior in Saskatchewan was overheard saying .. "when the end of the world comes, I hope to be in Saskatchewan." When asked why, he replied he'd rather be in Saskatchewan because everything happens in Saskatchewan 20 years later than in the rest of the civilized world.

The young man from Saskatchewan came running into the store and said to his buddy, "Bubba, somebody just stole your pickup truck from the parking lot!" Bubba replied, "Did you see who it was?

"The young man answered, "I couldn't tell, but I got the license number."

NEWS FLASH! - Saskatchewan's worst air disaster occurred when a small two-seater Cessna 150 plane, piloted by two University of Saskatchewan students, crashed into a cemetery earlier today. Search and Rescue workers have recovered 300 bodies so far and expect the number to climb as digging continues into the evening.

The pilot and copilot survived and are helping in the recovery efforts.

The Saskatchewan RCMP pulled over a pickup on Highway 16. The RCMP officer asked, "Got any ID?" The driver replied, "Bout whut?

A man in Saskatchewan had a flat tire, pulled off on the side of the road, and proceeded to put a bouquet of flowers in front of the car and one behind it. Then he got back in the car to wait.

A passerby studied the scene as he drove by and was so curious he turned around and went back. He asked the fellow what the problem was.

The man replied, "I have a flat tire." The passerby asked, "But what's with the flowers?"

The man responded, "When you break down they tell you to put flares in the front and flares in the back! I never did understand it either."

Mouse vs Mouse Trap...

All About Farts

Farts for Dummies

A fart can be quiet,
A fart can be loud,
Some leave a powerful,
Poisonous cloud

A fart can be short,
Or a fart can be long,
Some farts have been known
To sound like a song......

A fart can create
A most curious medley,
A fart can be harmless,
Or silent , but deadly.

A fart might not smell,
While others are vile,
A fart may pass quickly,
Or linger a while......

A fart can occur
In a number of places,
And leave everyone there,
With strange looks on their faces.

From wide-open prairie,
To small elevators,
A fart will find all of
Us sooner or later.

But not all farts are bad,
This is simply not true-
We must not forget.......
some old farts like you!

Well he died abruptly under strange circumstances and the funeral had a closed casket.

After the burial, the wife went straight to the local bar and began to party as if there was no tomorrow.

The cheerfulness of her actions was becoming extreme while her neighbors approached in a group to ask these questions:

are you not afraid? Worried? Concerned? That this man who practiced black magic and stated when he died he would dig his way up and out of the grave to come back and haunt you for the rest of your life? The wife put down her drink and said, “Let the jerk dig. I had him buried upside down.”

Father and son left the school, and on their way home, Smith turned to the boy and asked, "Tell me son, did you do it?"
Relationship Dynamics
The "car way" of telling how far the relationship is:

-- Trying to impress the woman: unlocks and opens the door, waits for her to get inside, closes her door behind her

-- Dating: the guy unlocks her door and then goes around to his side to get in.

-- Engaged: The man opens his door leans over and unlocks her door and opens it.

-- Married: The man gets in to the driver's seat unlocks the doors and says "Aren't you getting in?"

Three college professors were driving down the highway at a very slow speed.

A policeman pulled them over and explained that driving so slowly on the highway could be hazardous.

The driver pointed out the sign that read "20." He explained that he was going 20 mph because of the sign.

The policeman pointed out that the sign indicated they were driving on Highway 20.

Somewhat embarrassed the professor apologized and promised to be more observant.

As the policeman turn to walk back to his car, he noticed the other two professors on the floor ...looking scared to death!

He asked the driver, "What's wrong with them?"

The driver replied, "We just turned off Highway 105."

A Downed Hare
I was driving down the road when I saw a lady standing by her car.

When I pulled over to see if I could help she turned around holding a rabbit.

She explained that she had run over the rabbit and she thought it was going to die.

I so wanted to help her I went back to my car and came back with a can of spray.

I sprayed some in the rabbits' mouth and it twitched its' head a little.

I waited a little while and sprayed some more in it's mouth and it twitched its head a couple of times.

Not much later I sprayed more in it's mouth and the rabbit sprang from her arms and ran to the fence by the field, stopped, turned around and waved its' paw at us. We watched it run 50 ft, stop, turn and wave it's paw at us.

The lady looked at me in amazement and said, "WHAT WAS THAT YOU GAVE THAT RABBIT?"

I replied, "Oh just a little hair rejuvenator with permanent wave."
