At $4.00 -$5.00 per gallon for gas and (I presume) they are running without a load? That is one expensive Don Quixote exercise.

My brother in law posted something about it last week, a convoy leaving from Barstow. I'll admit, the junk little graphic he shared had a little joke that I thought was hilarious. I couldn't draw it well so I hired a guy online and he's taking for ev er.  I had hoped to sell a ton to these guys but it's funny just on its own, I think. 

Anyway I'm gonna try to cash in. /ethics

Well the bridge doesn't carry any traffic anymore, it's a sentimental thing because it was bombed in WWII and they rebuilt it.

All better! And as long as I'm mayor, it will never be taken apart again!" Then Bezos belched, put down his beer and said "I need a boat." So Mr. Mayor is ah er, em, say now what?
 
lol

ask him to move it to a park, make it landmark and put bar/gift shop in the top

It was decided that the economic benefits of building a $500M sailboat were worth the trouble. 

The builder is paying for the temporary work, and the bridge will be operational the same or next day. 

It's just another chance for everyone to complain about a guy with that much money.

FWIW - To pay for this, your Amazon Prime membership is going up $20 per year.  Mr. Bezos and the Dutch thank you.
