Here comes that battered old Tin Cup, looking for President Trump to fill it up full of US Dollars again.

A similar one collapsed in Australia a couple of years back stranding a couple on another end.

Great Ocean Road it was called:

As you can see, you would truly be stranded on the other end. Luckily, they didn't get hurt.

In the 90's another one called "London Bridge" also collapsed - also in Australia.

I might have confused it with ‘London Bridge’...

or was it “The Arch”...

The arch is a significant tourist attraction along the Great Ocean Road near Port Campbell in Victoria. ... The span closer to the shoreline collapsed unexpectedly on 15 January 1990, leaving two tourists (Kelli Harrison and David Darrington) stranded on the outer span before being rescued by police helicopter.

It would appear to me that, standing on top of the whole unbroken rock formation, one would STILL be stranded.

whoops.

i think it’s another simple example for those scientists stuck thinking everything takes millions of years to erode, etc.

God is in control, always. some things happen quick, some slower, but always when He says it’s ok.
