The Mighty Mac. When it was completed, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. It took 42,000 miles of cable, more than 460,000 cubic yards of concrete, and weighs in at just over one million tons.

Snakes On Your Phone! "This is Samuel L. Jackson...and I know everything about you." Yes, it's viral marketing, but this time it's brilliant: enter a friend's name, some details about them, and have Mr. Jackson place a phone call encouraging them to go see Snakes on a Plane. Best if the intended victim has no idea they're about to get a call. shamelessly stolen from MeFi
