[linkie] got me thinking about resonance, especially the part about shaking the brooklyn bridge.
To gain money for the HB, I propose that we stick (hide) a self adjusting resonance creator (see link, like that idea), high-powered, on various bridges and buildings. We then warn people and demand 2
Money, and a shrubbery.
Money goes to the HB, shrubbery is shared, and the buildings stay up.
The obvious advantages:
We all get rich. And a shrubbery.

Description (displayed with the short name and URL.)
||Love the choice of category.
||What would happen if some aspiring evil genius comes across this page and decides it's a good idea though?
||Superglue a brick to the side of all four wheels for your car and drive over it... and get your friends to do the same.
||buggar, I thought it was romance.
||[Worldgineer] that link is pretty neat.
||Quickly misread title as "renaissance"... until the second paragraph I thought this was about rogue fair participants mobbing the bridge on behalf of HB. Either would work, I like shubbery as much as the next. +
||The most important thing about demanding money is that you specify how much money. Or they will give you huppence and be done with you. I would hold out for at least tuppence if I were you.
||Is Homeland Security still twitchy about taking photos of bridges? Perhaps they were worried that the synchronised clatter of shutters could start a resonance.
Can I have a rockery instead?
