    The US tried attacking Japan with an Earthquake to remove Japan`s record-holding bridge from existence...

    The result? The bridge is longer.

    SuperJesus: The same way Merlin could disappear at will.

    Earthquakes are a state of mind.

    I sincerely doubt that 100 tiny asians can replicate an actual earthquake in any way.

    Now a hundred fat americans...

    Now you know: there`s no such thing as earthquakes, it`s just a load of workers who got bored and started dancing for no apparent reason.

    You`re totally right man. It`s those damn Asians at it again!

    Splurbyburbl, if you knew anything about bridges (great, now I feel like a nerd), you would know that suspension bridges are not even on the same playing field as other types of bridges. It`s like comparing the landspeed world record with the airspeed world record.

    Technically, it`s not the longest suspension bridge, but the longest suspended span (the part between the towers.)
