The 30 most dangerous bridges in the world

For thousands of years, bridges have been used as a way to safely cross dangerous waterways, mountainous gaps, and perilous valleys. In fact, one of the oldest bridges in the world–Arkadiko Bridge–was built more than 4,000 years ago. And since then, humanity has seen bridge disasters that have been the subjects of many news agencies. And despite how modern technology has made it much safer to use bridges, there are still some where the journey across can be treacherous if you aren’t careful. Intrigued? Click through this gallery to see where you can find these hazardous structures.


Stars who got arrested abroad

In our own countries, it seems celebrities are impervious to the law—or they have enough money to skirt past it. In foreign countries, however, things get a little tricky. Supermodel Gigi Hadid flew to the Cayman Islands in her private jet for a girls' trip on July 10, 2023. When they arrived, Customs & Border Control agents searched her bags and found marijuana and drug paraphernalia. They made a similar discovery in the bag of her friend, Leah Nicole McCarthy. The quantities found "were relatively small and were seemingly for personal consumption," reported a local news outlet. The women were both arrested and then released on bail. They had to appear before a judge two days later where they both pled guilty and were given US$1,000 fines. "Gigi was traveling with marijuana purchased legally in N.Y.C. with a Medical license. It has also been legal for medical use in Grand Cayman since 2017," a rep for Hadid said in a statement. "Her record remains clear and she enjoyed the rest of her time on the island." Hadid seemed to brush off the incident, posting bikini pics on Instagram and showing off a huge fake tattoo of a dragon on her leg. Being arrested abroad has many complications, and some treaties between countries can apparently be disregarded without penalty. Check out the gallery to learn more about Griner's case, as well as other stars that have been arrested while abroad.

13 Amusement Parks in the U.S. That Are Completely Free to Enter

A few even charge you nothing for parking and entertainment. Amusement parks are synonymous with so many wonderful things: fun in the sun, rollercoasters and carousels, games galore and delicious food. And all in a colorful, jubilant, family-friendly setting. The only issue? Joy like that does not typically come cheap. Or can it? Well, at these 13 amusement parks across the U.S., from the Golden to the Garden States, you can save on one very important front: entry. While the vast majority of amusement parks — including Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Busch Gardens — require tickets just to walk through the gates, these resorts and parks do not. Of course, if you want to ride the rides or snack on the snacks, you'll still have to open your wallet. (A good thing can only go so far!) But if you're someone who's more about the vibes than the rides, this is the list for you. Make sure you scroll to the bottom: There's one very famous park that's about to go "open gate" with its water parks for guests staying on property. (Hint: It's home to a special mouse!)

Surfing Amazon's endless wave

There are some truly amazing natural phenomena in this world. Nature can deliver the most spectacular things known to humankind, and some of us can, and do, make the most out of these events. Tidal bores are one of these magnificent phenomena. One in particular takes place in the Amazon rain forest, where every year, ocean water travels upstream.

Despite being extremely dangerous, every year surfers flock to this part of the world to ride one of the most unique waves in the world. Grab your surfboard and ride through the gallery to find out more.
