    Of course if you are on a hike, there is no car to stay in. I'm talking about the idiots that get out of their cars and chase a bear for a better picture, thinking that a can of bear spray makes them invincible...

      That 'bear spray' roadside tourist incident really made me shake my head, and one of the few times i said something. To be fair though, most people are just @$#@ing clueless. Before, being allowed in the park, you should be forced to watch videos of bears ripping apart garbage dumpsters and car trunks looking for food, as easy as we could crush pop bottles, and then of them being destroyed by the park because they're too desensitized to humans to be released.

        Here's a scary article on something that happened on Monday.

        After glass shatters, petrified tourists rush off transparent bridge over Chinese mountain valley.

        The glass-bottom bridge soaring above a mountain gorge in China was meant to thrill, but on Monday, tourists experienced true terror after cracks appeared underfoot as they crossed the transparent walkway

          Gem, your link goes to the building and opening of the skywalk from a couple years ago... I'm assuming you meant to post a link to the cracks appearing in the glass?

              A similar thing happened at the "Ledge" in Sears Tower, FYI the glass can support about 5 tons so about 3-4 rhinoceros, so one top layer cracking will still support a human quite nicely.

              PS: Yes Willis I know whatcha talkin' 'bout, I know Sears Tower has a different name, I'm being obstinate.

                Went on it again last summer, they had ironed out most of the opening kinks, better signage, although they still could use more graphical signs to help people who aren't English speaking.

                You can jump on it, and it will not break, (BTW jumping does freak out other people) even a sledgehammer will not break the bottom layers after a dozen blows.
