Your Monday Morning Explosion Fix: Watch This Bridge Blow Up in Glorious Slow Motion

The US-281 Bridge in Marble Falls, Texas had to go. Fortunately for us, the best way to do that involved a whole bunch of explosives. The bridge was demolished yesterday morning with a series of explosions that made one specular last trip across the steel span. And while stuff blowing up is always awesome, stuff blowing up in slow motion is always better.

The bridge wasn't the only casualty however. The explosion also rocked a nearby telephone line, disrupting cell phone and landline service in three nearby counties all day. Worth the price of admission? Probably. [Laughing Squid, KVUE]

You really get how much faster light travels than sound in this video. It would be cool if movies did it the same way.
