A link on digg gets us to a page about Germany’s new Water Bridge, an impressive aquaduct.

So, today’s Thanksgiving dinner question: what happens to the load on the bridge’s supporting columns as traffic enters an empty bridge? Do they feel additional weight? Does the load on them stay the same? (Please don’t e-mail me: just a question to get the family thinking.)

Please keep it clean, respectful, and relevant. I reserve the right to remove comments I don't feel belong.
