London Bridge Was Falling Down, Then Shipped to the U.S.

The fine folks at MinutePhysics are taking a break from physics this week, presumably because physics is very hard. Instead, they’re exploring an odd tidbit from intercontinental history in which the city of London really did have a bridge it wanted to sell — the then decrepit London Bridge. As is so often the case, an eccentric gazillionaire with more money than sense got involved, and history was made. Which is why the London Bridge is in Arizona now. That is great, because it reaffirms the fact that we live in a world that is very strange sometimes.
