Tacoma Narrows Bridge Collapse Gallopin' Gertie
Watch the amazing Gallopin' Gertie November 7, 1940 film clip.
1940 Tacoma Narrows Bridge
Slender, elegant and graceful, the Tacoma Narrows Bridge stretched like a steel ribbon across Puget Sound in 1940. The third longest suspension span in the world opened on July 1st. Only four months later, the great span's short life ended in disaster. Galloping Gertie, collapsed in a windstorm on November 7,1940.
The bridge became famous as the most dramatic failure in bridge engineering history. Now, it's also one of the world's largest man-made reefs. The sunken remains of Galloping Gertie were placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992 to protect her from salvagers.
A dramatic tale of failure and success
The story of the failure of the 1940 Narrows Bridge and the success of the Current Narrows Bridge is a great American saga. When Galloping Gertie splashed into Puget Sound, it created ripple effects across the nation and around the world. The event changed forever how engineers design suspension bridges. Gertie's failure led to the safer suspension spans we use today.

Exploring summer night streets - Hookers
Imagine a supermarket. There are a departements for vegetables, meats, fishes, and snack. There is a departement for potato chips* and there are different kind and form of chips: classic, spicy, sour, long, thiny, sea salt, corn, cheese. You can't taste, you must choose looking the package, there is a colored, transparent, big, little, tube, bag.
Every time you can try a different potatoes chips kind. Only thing is you can't know if are good until you eat it.
In the street is same.
*potatoes or potatoes chips (patata o patatina) in italian slang means female reproductive organ.
I love go on supermarket and observe the goods, choose quietly and buy.
