Alcohol may have been involved

I wonder how old the picture is. It shows a suspension bridge under construction

Another Dam Fool!

Emmett - the bridge was built between 2005 and 2010, so that photo must be from about 2008-2009.

And I will definitely NOT have what he's having.

That was dam stupid.

I checked the link to the Welsh newspaper, which gave a few other wonderful quotes, including that he was "on a 37-hour bender" at the time.

I love Hoover Dam but there is not enough alcohol in the world for me to attempt this. Maybe if it was a triple dog dare... .

I think I read somewhere that to pass exams, Brits have to swim the English Channel.

He doesn't get his Darwin Award since 9 of 10 turbines were not operating. I've seen the "sturgeon burger" spit out by the turbines of the hydro dam at my WI hometown -- not pretty.

I'm pretty dam sure he didn't eat lentils before he swam that.

Hydro dams suck.

Coscolo - I saw Sturgeon Burger open for Hootie and the Blowfish. And you're right: it was NOT pretty.

Isn't swimming across a concrete dam hard on the arms and legs? Skinned knees seem like a terrible price to pay.
