Nolan Patrick cracks Flyers' opening night roster

  Nolan Patrick cracks Flyers' opening night roster This year's second overall selection, Nolan Patrick, has cracked the Philadelphia Flyers opening night roster, according to general manager Ron Hextall. The news doesn't come as too much of a surprise given Patrick entered this year's draft as the No. 1 rated prospect by NHL Central Scouting. Nevertheless, the 19-year-old had a fairly underwhelming preseason offensively, wherein he tallied just three assists in six games with his biggest highlight coming when he dropped the gloves with Boston Bruins forward David Krejci this past Thursday.

This glass walkway that stands over 3 , 800 feet in the air seemed to “ crack ” as a tour guide walked on it . The transparent path overlooks East Taihang Mountains outside of Handan city in China’s Hebei Province — a beautiful sight, but not one where you ’d want to fall off a bridge.

A popular glass walkway cracked after a tourist dropped a steel mug on it in China. Suspended off the side of Yuntai Mountain, the walkway is paved by three individual, one-inch-thick glass panes, capable of supporting as much as 800 kilograms of weight.

This glass walkway that stands over 3,800 feet in the air seemed to “crack” as a tour guide walked on it. The transparent path overlooks East Taihang Mountains outside of Handan city in China’s Hebei Province — a beautiful sight, but not one where you’d want to fall off a bridge.

How was it done?

The trick was accomplished by putting a layer of broken glass beneath the walkway. Whenever someone walks on it, they’ll hear the crunch of it breaking and see cracks appear. One tour guide who fell for the trap screamed for his life.

Broken skyscraper window sends glass flying onto downtown Calgary street

  Broken skyscraper window sends glass flying onto downtown Calgary street Glass fell from the 51st storey of a downtown Calgary highrise Sunday morning after a window-washing crew accidentally smashed a panel while working at Brookfield Place. Fire crews responded to 225 6 Ave. S.W. about 11:30 a.m. where they found the fallen glass. The streets and sidewalks around the building were shut down so crews could assess safety and allow for cleanup.Sixth Avenue between Centre and Second Streets S.W. was closed for several hours along with First Street between Fifth and Seventh Avenues S.W. "A wind gust carried the swing stage out and it smashed into the building and broke some glass," said Batt.

China's passion for glass -bottomed walkways has reached a new level as one scenic spot is deliberately making the see-through panels crack at over 3 , 800 feet high. With the help of sensors and special effects

Mashable spotted some posts on Chinese social media website Weibo this week that claimed a glass walkway at Yuntai Mountain started to crack while they were walking across it . “I was almost at the end and suddenly I heard a sound,” wrote one Weibo user. “My foot shook a little.

According to Mashable, the East Taihang district administration stated, “The splintering glass was merely an ‘effect’ it worked into a portion of its bridge, in order to be ‘provocative.'”

Either way, I’m not sure how many people would actually get a laugh out of a prank like this.

Not afraid of heights? Why not try it out next time you’re around?
