3,800-Ft-High Glass Walkway in China ‘Cracks’ When Tourists Walk On It

Who thought of this?!

A A A

You may have heard of China’s hanging glass skywalk in the East Taihang Mountains, Handan City, in north China’s Hebei Province. The glass bridge is suspended 1,180 meters above sea level, and it stretches 266 meters in length. Walking on the famous attraction and structure is already scary in itself, so the thought of it cracking beneath your feet is surely beyond terrifying.

In perhaps the cruelest of marketing ideas, the management of the glass skywalk thought it would be fun to add a shattering glass special effect, complete with cracking sounds, to the already horrifying experience.

A video of a tour guide freaking out after seeing the special effects recently went viral.

The man was walking along the bridge when suddenly, the glass beneath him started ‘cracking.’ The man got on his knees and started screaming, looking terrified for his life.

After the video went viral, the East Taihang district administration sent out an official apology on its WeChat channel.

They clarified that the shattering glass was only an “effect” that was added to a portion of the bridge in order to be “provocative.” They explained that the walkway designers placed shattered fragments of glass in one of the layers of the bridge, stretching across several panels. When visitors walk over those panels, the glass then appears to break under their feet and the cracking sound is activated.

The management said they were very sorry that people got frightened, but they have no intention of removing the special effect. According to them, their workers check the bridge daily to ensure the safety of all visitors. They also claimed that the tour guide in the video knew the whole thing wasn’t real. Some Weibo users speculate that what happened could be a big publicity stunt.

23 Images That Show The Harrowing Effects of Nuclear Weapons

Forget about those apocalyptic mutant shenanigans you often see in movies and videogames.

As we all know by now, one of the worst inventions created by the mankind is the nuclear weapon. Remember the atomic bomb?It is so devastating that even its creator, J. Robert Oppenheimer, was devastated after witnessing its full capacity for destruction when dropped in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. After that monumental event, Oppenheimer made a statement in 1965 in the television broadcast:

We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.' I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.

But despite that general knowledge, people nowadays still don’t appreciate the full extent of a nuclear weapon’s capacity for destruction. No, we’re not talking about the base explosion here. In order to convey the full extent of the damage it could make, below are a few images showcasing the long term effects of the nuclear testing in a remote area somewhere in Kazakhstan.
