we have a bridge at my university that is painted with slogans, club advertisements, SJW **** like 4 or 5 times a week and the paint is so thick that the bridge is in danger of collapsing in the next few years

I don't see how layers of paint would make a bridge collapse. sciencexplain ?
User avatar #28 to #26 - sciencexplain (04/25/2014) [-]
Most likely that as the bridge has worn away and corroded over time, the paint was so thick that the main structure became the paint. When they remove it, there will be not enough bridge left to create a good structural support and it could collapse from the damage it has received from weathering and corrosion.

The resins and solvents might have also corroded the bridge.
User avatar #71 to #36 - sciencexplain (04/26/2014) [-]
That as well.

everything has a weight. paint has weight. with enough paint, the weight grows. too much weight can make stuff collapse. the paint weighs a lot because the bridge was painted a lot. the bridge might collapse from weight
the weight of the paint puts strain on the bridge supports, bending and breaking them.

We have the same thing at my school, but on a giant rock. We call it "The Rock" because we are creative college students or something.
User avatar #19 to #1 - drunkasaurus (04/25/2014) [-]
Are you at UVA? I saw a bridge like that when I visited
#22 to #19 - anon (04/25/2014) [-]
This is coloredfolks....yes, I'm graduating next month
User avatar #23 to #22 - drunkasaurus (04/25/2014) [-]
Ah. It's a very nice school. I'm finishing my sophmore year at Tech. UVA just seemed snooty when I visited, I ain't got time for that type of pretentious preppy **** . Congrats on graduating though!
#61 to #23 - anon (04/26/2014) [-]
I always tell people I would like to have gone to tech instead. Want to study agriculture....no program at this very preppy school, you are right.

I got recruited to play football so didnt really have a choice. Think we can beat y'all this year lol

We have a rock that they do that too at my Uni. Ppl say it was the size of a fist at the start (its easily car sized now) while tahts obviously bs, it never gets washed just repainted and its been here for years so I can assume its grown considerably.

I'm sorry apparently it's 5 mils thick, not 5 mm thick. I had never heard of a mil. A mil is 1/1000 of an inch, so it only gained an inch. my bad
#11 to #2 - allinallout **User deleted account** (04/25/2014) [-]
the average coat of paint is something like 5 mm thick, so everytime you paint you add 10 mm of diameter. So, after 100 years of college, you'd have a rock that gained one meter in diameter. Damn that's a ******* lot
User avatar #12 to #11 - gelind (04/25/2014) [-]
thats assuming its painted once a year, its painted like once a week sometimes every other day.
#14 to #12 - allinallout **User deleted account** (04/25/2014) [-]
holy **** are you serious? that's ******* crazy! I figured they painted it like once a year during rush or something? **** . if it's painted like 100~ times a year, it grows an inch a year. That's wild dude
User avatar #16 to #14 - gelind (04/25/2014) [-]
There are 20 some frat/sor on campus, and you have rush week, pledge week, all of their parties 1st 2nd and 3rd degree etc. Frat stuff happens all year round

It was here on this spot, the Quips promoted their gig at the local pub. Attendance was said to have reached over six that night.

Here is the poster looking for Mittens the cat, who turned out was just sleeping under the bed.
User avatar #15 to #3 - mrsecret (04/25/2014) [-]
Well if you look carefully at the picture, you can see they are using two very large pry bars to remove it.

In The Hague there is a electric transfer house for every street and they always put those posters on it so the city government decided to hire a bunch of paint artist and design a lot of beautiful paintings they could paint on it and since then (about 7 years ago) we haven't seen a single poster on it since.

That's pretty smart since they often look pretty ugly.

We will never know considering the ad hoc way they are ripping them off.

the ink and paper fibers would have been ruined from that many years of poster-adhesive, rain, and microbial growth

Reminds me of having a cast removed... not a pleasant thought
User avatar #64 to #48 - angrypapagenu (04/26/2014) [-]
I remember when I was getting my cast removed. Doc had that little electric saw thing and he's like "I'm pretty good at this so I wont cut you." Mother ****** cut me about 5 times. Asshole didn't even give a **** ......
