In case you needed any more evidence that we, as a nation, have no attention span whatsoever, a band of thieves in Pennsylvania have successfully made off with an entire goddamn bridge. Over the course of one week, they dismantled an entire metal bridge using only a blowtorch. All without being seen by anybody. This was in Pittsburgh, by the way, so they can’t even make the excuse of being distracted by the Phillies playoff run. They have the Pirates, who haven’t done anything in decades and are one or two more losing seasons away from being demoted to Little League status.
Meh, another hundred losses. Might as well go bridge-watchingWHATTHEFUCKITSNOTTHERE??!!
The bridge had most recently been used by local businesses as alternate transportation for heavy cargo. There is another bridge nearby, presumably not stolen or taken apart in any way, that was being used as well. So it’s completely understandable that this theft went undetected; after all, gigantic metal bridges are a dime a dozen these days.
