I wanted to TD, but could not think of a sports related one. So I decided to make this non-sport related one. Since the mods appear to be inactive, it should not be a problem.
Topic: Five coolest bridges in the world
Rules: Must be a bridge that carries motor vehicle traffic, no pedestrian bridges.
#1 - Oresund Bridge
This bridge is freaking awesome. It starts of as a long 8 km bridge, but then for the last 4 km is a tunnel! From the sky it appears to be a bridge that just was never complete, but it is. Sooooo cool.
#2 - Golden Gate
It is iconic, and beautiful. We all know it.
#3 - Millau Viaduct
It is the world's tallest, and goes across beautiful scenery.
#4 - Erasmusbrug
Looks like a swan, a very cool looking bridge.
#5 - Tower Bridge
Another classic icon.
Cake & Boobies FTW!

A TD about bridges, Argos ?? Really.
You should change your name to Buzz Killington.
The Toronto Maple Laffs suck.

Since when were bridges a buzz kill?
They are a great display of artictecturhe and engineering, and should be admired. They can be beautiful structures, even more so beautiful than buildings because of the landscape in which they often appear.
They are structures that over come obstacles to provide passage.
For as long as there has been human, there has been bridges. Bridges started off simply as logs across obstacles, and have been developed and mastered by ancient civilizations and to the point we have them today.
They can be seen as a great metaphor to life and the spirit of man kind to constantly over come obstacles thrown at them.
I leave you with a display of bridges that just narrowly missed my list, along with some pedestrian bridges.
If you are gonna ruin a TD, try at least making it entertaining and funny.
