Just minutes after the grand opening ceremony, the new Mistagi Bridge in central Doesburg collapsed killing at least fifteen people and injuring dozens.

There was panic as the central stick tower began to groan and crack under the added weight of the celebrations but the collapse happened before there could be any evacuation.

The disaster is thought to have been caused by heavy rain loosening the cellotape and lollypop stick structure from its newspaper foundations. One distraught onlooker was found to be crying into a hot dog and mumbling "doooo di dooooo"...

You've got to think of every contingency when building a bridge.

Maybe it's for a DVD player not a video, they are much less high than a video recorder typically.

Of course.

Being too narrow... now that is pretty dumb. :cute:

mr.G
25-05-2005, 09:25:08
no man, I hate big vcr-players.
Made that thing for a friend of mine who also hated big vcr-players, but hey it would be a bit schjmarter (commercially speaking) when it could suit all vcr-players.

NEWSFLAH- designers are a bit hardheaded.
