This Bridge Made Exclusively Out of Paper Can Apparently Support Human Weight

New, 1 comment

English environmental artist Steve Messam has created a bridge made out of 22,000 pieces of paper and nothing else, and apparently the bridge is structurally strong enough that you can walk on it. And when we say you we do mean you, because we're not walking on some bridge made out of paper. We don't care how well designed, or pretty, or strikingly contrasted with the countryside it is, nor do we care that even if we did fall off we'd only fall a couple feet into a shallow creek. Call us bridge purists. Very nice bridge, Steve Messam, but you're going to have to get up pretty early in the morning to get us to stand on a paper bridge.
