The rebuilt Seongsu Bridge
|Date||October 21, 1994|
|Location||Han River, Seoul, South Korea|
|Revised Romanization||Seongsu Daegyo|
The Seongsu Bridge is a bridge over the Han River in Seoul, South Korea. The bridge links the Seongdong and Gangnam districts. The cantilever bridge was completed in 1979 and its total length is 1160 m. It became infamous when it collapsed on October 21, 1994.
The bridge collapsed early in the morning when one of its concrete slabs fell due to a failure of the suspension structure. This structural failure was caused by improper welding of the steel trusses of the suspension structure beneath the concrete slab roadway.
In the accident 32 people died and 17 were injured. Afterwards, the bridge was supposed to be repaired, but because of a weakness in the structure, it had to be completely redesigned and rebuilt. The new design was finished on 15 August 1997, and is similar to the original design.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
