Senses working overtime #112

1 Bridges in China
I love these images showing some tremendous feats of engineering in China even if they are in debt (China now boasts the world’s highest bridge, the longest bridge, the highest rail trestle and a host of other superlatives).

The Jiaozhou Bay Bridge in Qingdao, in Shandong Province

The Beipan River Shanghai-Kunming high speed rail bridge
 in Guanling Buyi and Miao Autonomous Prefecture in Anshun

The Duge Beipanjiang Bridge, in Guizhou Province

4 Computer screens within movies
Fascinating look from the Vox people about how graphics get onto computer screens in the movies

Dylan's lecture on getting the Nobel Prize for literature is 27 ish minutes so grab a cuppa and let your boot heals wander.
