Here's a new candidate for the world's most precarious school commute. Sorry, two-day Chinese mountaineering expedition.


In the Indonesian village of Sanghiang Tanjung, flooding has damaged a 162-meter suspension bridge such that students are forced to shimmy across it at the risk of their own lives. Apparently there is a 5-kilometer route that is less harrowing, but nobody wants to be tardy.


I've got to hand it to these kids — when I was their age, I'm not sure the multiplication tables would've been worth reenacting the climax of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom daily.
