The Hongyagu glass bridge

 

This shiny, see-through attraction in China is famed for bringing out the fear in its visitors. If a drop of several hundred metres with nothing but glass between your feet and a nasty ending isn’t bad enough, the glass allegedly does an illusion of suddenly cracking when you step on it. Do I smell shepherd’s pie, or should I say, runny digested noodles? Yikes!!

On a collision course

 

The moment a ball collides with a pane of glass. You can see the trajectory of the cracks as they ripple out from the site of impact. An epic noir slow-motion GIF from gifak-net.
