"they also have to repaint it regularly, or it doesn`t stay golden"

It isn`t golden, it`s orange. It`s called the Golden Gate Bridge because it spans the Golden Gate. But you`re right, they are pretty much constantly painting part of it.

Hey, I`m going to California for Spring Break, but I don`t think I`ll be too close to San Fran to see this.

Still, California for Spring Break...pray for me.

"And people still jump?"

Not from up there, jumping from the side is more than enough to hit the speed for the water to turn you into mush.

Of all the places I have been to in the states, San Francisco was by far my favorite. The Oriental Pearl, best Chinese food I have ever had. And places that like to sell little miniature bottles of alcohol. We drove over the bridge, and took a boat underneath....But even the Bay Bridge is a that goes over to the Oakland Area is a larger suspension bridge.



Then again, I came there from three months living in Casper, Wyoming, so I think it was just nice to see more people than cows, and towns with populations above 10-2000.

People don`t jump from up there. They jump from the sides of the bridge. It still does the job though...

I-A-B Trivia: The official name for the distinctive colour of the Golden Gate Bridge is "International Orange". Don`t ask me how I know that, but it`s probably down to playing too much Trivial Pursuit and pub quizzes. And google tells me that the actual colour mix for the bridge in CMYK colours is: C= Cyan: 0%, M =Magenta: 69%, Y =Yellow: 100%, K = Black: 6%.

Some people will find that interesting, the rest will (with some justification) think I should be shot.

I was curious, partly because the UK also has a famously large suspension bridge (Humber bridge), so I looked some things up.

The distance from top to road is even larger on a few other suspension bridges than it is on the Golden Gate bridge, i.e. a few are even worse than this photo. None as old as the Golden Gate bridge though, so it`s more impressive in a way.

Humans build awesome stuff and it gets more awesome as time goes on.
