    The no flection of the logs really made me question if this was real. Those logs should have bent at least some.

    I can't explain why, but I believe it.

    There are a million questions I would ask why would anyone want to do this, and why go backwards?

    One thing is clear. There is deflection. You can even see bark falling from the right log (easy to miss on a phone screen) and hear the wood creaking and cracking . As the van is coming off, there is upward deflection. The logs won't deflect the same, unless they were exactly the same and with similar growth habit. Also, this is a very light weight vehicle - definitely not what we expect in the US.
    The tire pressure is on the low side, and I wonder if that was on purpose.

    All those present good observations, the deflection is minimal, but certain the light weight and wheel base distribute the force, if real at all.
    Notwithstanding, notice reflections in the water below, if faked - well done.
    But none of those are what caught me. I saw "we can't construct a bridge where there is some kind of infrastructure, this isn't remote, but we have a monstrous army and navy!" "Not only that, 90,000 failing earthen even concrete dams, threatening entire nations nearby!"
    Every single imported item they generate that's sold, only furthers that agenda.

    I noticed that too. We used to put our cars on rail road tracks and lower the air pressure until they would track the rails. It worked surprisingly well.....until we got caught.

    with the log bridge guy......why didnt he just drive across the bridge the people are standing on taking the vid??? those are very light weight vans, we also dont know waht kind of tree it is. Ive seen this done a few timess in person with a old army jeep when I was a kid. but he used 3 logs. and why are there no ripples in the h2o from dropping debris? hmmm more things to ponder. I wonder if one of those ticktock girls is driving with flotation devices inflated with helium?
    as for this big yelleow machine making the bridge...****ing awesome!!!!! we just have $8. a hour crack heads, drunks and rednecks around hear building ours.
