Stupid is as stupid does never fails, and ya just can't fix stupid. Best news is that they didn't land on a boat.

Oh yeah you can fix stupid, they proved it.

Wonder what kind of drugs they were on.

Just googled it. About 165 feet to clear it. Probably missed the landing by 160 feet.

Cerveza? hmmm I'm thinkn they were on something a little more "altering" than that. "Columbian BamBam" perhaps?

relative short bridge over bayous and canals down here that aren't built on typical pilings. It's a floating bridge. They work well and a lot of people probably never realize they're driving across a floating bridge.
