For many years, couples unable to think of a remotely unique way to express their love during European vacations have been leaving locks on the Pont des Arts bridge in Paris. As the number of locks approached one million, the bridge was in danger of collapsing. So in came the workers with their bolt cutters. And now tourists are attaching padlocks to another nearby bridge. (Maybe I’m too nostalgic for old Paris, but whatever happened to drinking a few bottles of wine and having hotel sex in front of webcam?)
