(Twee weken later op 28 mei 1937 wordt de Golden Gate Bridge geopend. Het is een hangbrug die het schiereiland San Fransisco met het noorden verbindt. De brug is hoog genoeg om de grote zeeschepen de Baai en de haven van San Francisco zonder problemen te laten bereiken. De brug is 2737 m lang, en overspant 1280 m water. De brug is ontworpen door Joseph B. Strauss. Er wordt alleen tol geheven in zuidelijke richting, naar San Francisco toe. De brug is direct vanaf het begin een succes. In 1971 zijn de kosten van 75 miljoen dollar terugverdiend. Afgelopen zeven decennia heeft de brug talloze aardbevingen doorstaan, waaronder een aardbeving met een kracht van 7,1 op de schaal van Richter in 1989. In zijn hele bestaan is de brug nog maar drie keer afgesloten geweest vanwege zware windstoten.)

(In Tonga overlijdt op 19 mei 1965 Tui Malila. Tui is een schildpad en deze bereikt de gezegende leeftijd van 192 jaar of was het 188? Onze bronnen spreken elkaar tegen. Hoe dan ook, het is wél de oudste ons bekende schildpad. Het beest was een geschenk van kapitein James Cook aan de Koninklijke Familie van Tonga. Het betrof een exemplaar van de stralenschildpad (Geochelone radiata). Deze schenking vond plaats in 1773, ofwel 1777. Vandaar dat we een slag om de arm houden qua leeftijd. Een nog ouder exemplaar is Adwaitya, een Aldabra-reuzenschilpad van 255 jaar, volgens onbevestigde bronnen zelfs 300 jaar, die sterft in 2006.)
