    What happened to the dog?
    Apart from the musick, the “expert”, lack of any chronological order of shots, other irrelevant shots, the lack of technical detail or science it passed a few minutes.
    At least I learned that the bridge was like the wing of an aircraft.
    Maybe aircraft were different in those days.
    No, I lie. I learned nothing.

    The music was certainly “off”. There was a contradictory vagueness of how long it took to build, and a vagueness about the start of WWII for the USA.

    The dog eventually left the car: we saw it. That its owner had abandoned the creature was shameful. It was courageous of the other chap to try to rescue it; probably unwise though.

    I’m a bit surprised he didn’t just lift it out – it was only a cocker spaniel. Maybe it was baring its teeth too much for that.

      The music and the dog were the two which got me.

    If that man commenting happened to have been my professor I do believe I would have had to run back onto the bridge as it did the ‘unthinkable’ and ‘undulated one time too many’, gotten in the car with that poor pooch and said a prayer of thanks for a way out and well….Geronimoooooo!

    Except….the bridge undulated itself down down down years before his telling of it. Nice man I am sure, but oh my…I must needs skip his class and take a nice nap or go flirt with someone for that hour, had he been my professor!
