Original medieval bridge

Krämerbrücke is in Erfurt, Germany, spans 86 yards, and has been around for about 1000 years. The walkway is an ordinary village street surrounded on both sides by houses that people live in, and every year they have a festival that celebrates the Middle Ages. It's a cool architectural idea that didn't catch on in a big way, but makes one think about what could have been if bridges hadn't evolved in a more minimalistic, function-oriented direction.

Goodness

As Gandhi stepped aboard a train one day, one of his shoes slipped off and landed on the track. He was unable to retrieve it as the train was moving. To the amazement of his companions, Gandhi calmly took off his other shoe and threw it back along the track to land close to the first. Asked by a fellow passenger why he did so. Gandhi smiled, "The poor man who finds the shoes lying on the track," he replied, "will now have a pair he can use."
