This Week In Kids These Days: In preparation for playing host to the 24th Summit of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, Vladivostok has been investing heavily in city infrastructure, an investment that includes the construction of two enormous cable-stayed bridges — the Zolotoy Rog Bridge, which spans Golden Horn Bay, and the Russky Island bridge that will connect the island where the summit will take place to the mainland. When completed, the Russky Island bridge will be the world’s largest cable-stayed span at 1,104 metres, supported with pylons that soar as high as 321 metres.
All this is a long way of saying that of course some crazy Russian kids are going to combine their safest sweatshirts with their sturdiest slip-on shoes and start climbing these things, spreading sweaty palms and rubber legs all across YouTube in the process.
If you’re wondering what the pleasant tune is, the track is called So Long by the very cool Russian post-rock band Verticals. If you’re wondering what the angry tune is, it’s Roots Bloody Roots by Sepultura.
