Re: Bridge nerds (was CE vs IT - IT HAPPENS)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] oh yes.... we are out there... some will not admit it, but we love bridges! I dont know how suitable the work nerd is but what the hey..... i work in bridge design... though nothing like akashi, but day in and day out, i am impressed by bridges, those i drive under, and those i drive over, and those you and i see on discovery channel, history channel and the learning channel... there should be a bridge channel, documenting little golf fairway bridges to those of golden gate, akashi and more..... well back to work for me..... those darn end bents....

current bridge show on Discovery Channel for the 3rd time in a week.  And I

There is no such thing as a "bridge nerd". My step son and
myself(Engineers) and my wife(math teacher) spend a lot of quality
time watching every program on bridges possible. While on
vacation, my wife and I make a point on stopping at, driving over
etc. and admiring bridges including Sydney Harbor, Goldern Gate,

Hang on....I think my family are bridge nerds!!!!
