Bridges

Discussion in 'Off Topic' started by Enfyrneaux, Mar 22, 2006.

Which bridge is the most popular in the upcoming bridge war?

  1. The first one, it has a GPU.

    23.1%
  2. The second one, but really the first one.

    15.4%
  3. The third one, it's the best.

    38.5%
  4. The one after third, but it's for the children's market.

    23.1%

    These are suspension bridges I have to sell you....

    1. Arch supported beam - thin arch and strong deck beam. Also equipped with a graphics co-processor capable of eating cheese.

    2. The arch and beam of almost equal depth and could be described as not very expressive. Same as above, but different. See bold cell function in Microsoft Excel.

    3. The arch and beam in the third bridge have become slender due to the use of inclined hangers, it's zig-zag cell unit is clearly superior to all others.

    4. Cantilevering side span arches. This model is clearly for the children's market and casual bridge crossers.

    No, we aren't discussing causeways here. Feel free to post exact specifications.

    If specifications are entered, I don't see why not. Be warned that the cantilever bridge doesn't support modding like the arch and beam, because it's obviously for the children's market.

    The first one is good, never know when you'll be flooded with cheese.

    You can buy a bridge at one of our specially qualified bridge dealers, I know them very well. We don't carry cantelevered bridges, they are for the children's market. Although it's not the main topic here, we do sell causeways - including the new Dual Lane model - but that is neither here nor there. Arch and Beam bridges (AAB) offer the best in performance (due to Cell loading), and they don't have the heat problems of the Arch Supported Beam (ASB).

    And randomness just got a whole new meaning.

    What the hell is going on in the original poster's head when he/she decides to post a thread about BRIDGES with GPU's?

    What drugs are you on and where can I get some?

    I've designed a set of bridges all based on the same design, all serving the ultimate purpose:
    The absolute bypassing of France

    Well, this is what we have so far:

    Freon: Amazing pre-emptive laser shark measure, definitely a win for the French nex-gen bridge devs.

    The_Head: This is obviously an implimentation of the Arch supported beam. It has lens flaer, which takes excellent advantage of the CE GPU. It really is hueg too.

    Beeb: If the cars have suicide doors, you are in a win-win propositional situation. Concrete galoshes never go wrong, either.

    Deepsy: Excellent plan, but Freon's sharks might foil it given their indisputable power in the causeway market.

    Arcturus: Looks pretty, but it's half finished - it smacks of vaporware. I'll await focus-group studies before making a verdict on this one.
