Wave Bye-Bye!

Russian engineers and architects who designed this bridge...

...had apparently never heard of this bridge:

First clip via Swans On Tea. I love the pedestrian near the beginning of the first clip; my guess is he's full of vodka, and figures it's just him. Incidentally, the Russian bridge opened in October, roughly seven months ago. I imagine there's a pool gambling on its failure date. It's possible to retrofit and dampen the resonance, I suppose.
