>Is this for real?


I received a “Forward” at work today.  It was in that typical “Forward” font that makes me want to discredit it before I’ve even finished reading it.  I know, I’m jaded. 

But, I had to keep reading once I saw the photo which I was sure was Photo-shopped.  Doesn’t this look fake?


Someone please tell me if this is real or not.  Apparently, according to the forward-fairies, it’s a:

Water Bridge in Germany . What a feat!
Six years, 500 million Euros, 918 meters long…….now this is engineering!
This is a channel-bridge over the River Elbe and joins the former East and West Germany , as part of the unification project. It is located in the city of Magdeburg , near Berlin ..
The photo was taken on the day of inauguration.

I’ve tried researching this online but all I’ve found are this same text and more photos with no real context.  Snopes and Urban Legends were of no help, either.  Does anyone know?
