Note to self: never attempt to climb the Golden Gate Bridge. Two fearless young men did just that a few months ago and are now paying the price: the Golden Gate Bridge Authority is suing them. The suit seeks to ban the two Wisconsin residents from the bridge for any purpose other than traveling between San Francisco and Marin County and is also asking for unspecified damages and legal costs. The climbers video of their death defying climb -- using no gear or safety harnesses -- went viral in May and has clocked more than 140,000 views.
