Get set, go!

Eshima Ohashi Bridge in Japan reminds you of the kind of bridges you find only in whacky racing games like Grand Theft Auto. Imagine having to cross this bridge on your way to work in the morning! It’s sure to brighten up even the dullest of Mondays. Of course, perspective is everything, they say — look straight at the bridge and it looks so steep that you’d expect vehicles to tumble down with the slightest braking, but look at it sideways and it’s not so terrifying.
