  • OT Pictures of stupid things people do, lets see them!

    I always liked to see pics of random acts of stupidity or temporary brain lapse. Lets see what funny pics you have saved on your computer!


    I'll start

        And if his mileage is anything like my Prius, he may have been dragging that behind him for 4 or 5 weeks!

          Well, that gives a new slant to "Doesn't stop for gas."

              I'm pretty sure that hammers are better for breaking. An anchor might help with braking, but except for a very specific circumstance, it's not really needed.

              I always wonder about anti-lock and traction control designs. In both cases the designer has to figure out when it's better to over-ride the explicit commands of the driver. That's not easy to do.

              But they are fixing the problem, so it's no worse than the recall on my taurus where the gas line tended to leak on the exhaust manifold. But what's a little fire between friends?

The fork lift fell off forward when it hit the ground it broke the front axle on both wheels. One wheel went to the right the other wheel went to the left they flew over 300 feet through the air before. If the wheels had hit someone it would have killed them dead. Lucky they were outside on the back side of the building if those wheels had bounced all over the inside of the building no telling how many people would have been hurt.

                    Guys on 3 shift use to drag race the fork lifts one night one of the fork lifts went off the loading dock at the Railroad tracks. There was no railroad car parked there at the time. The front forks stuck in the dirt leaving the fork lift stuck in the ground at about 40 degree angle.

                      Google OOPS for ton of similar pix, that pop up here, like the forklift pix,
                      from time to time. Then there is is scatological pix of the guy demolished
                      in the lathe from a few years back and the electrocution pix, particularly
                      gruesome out of Russia from the '90s when the economy there went
                      underwater. There is a website of 3d world pix of really gruesome auto
                      accidents, executions and some of the more horrendous things people do
                      to each other either malignantly or in the spirit of fun and games.
                      The gas hose pix looks staged.

                        Can we not post graphic images, without a warning first. Just had to explain that pic to my 5 year old. This is a machinist site not rotten.com.

                          Started a thread about coax indicators on HSM. Things go to hell in a hurry when you think outside the box here. http://metalworkingathome.com/?p=68

                              -Agreed. While I've seen that photo before, it's still distasteful, and not at all what I come to this site to see.

                              In any case, what does this have to do with machining, again?

                              Besides being off topic, there's already dozens of sites out there showing the various "stupid human tricks"- from humorous (IE, non-fatal) airplane accidents, to home-improvement gone wrong. There's even a site that takes photos from online real-estate listings and makes fun of the colors or the decorations or the ugly wallpaper.

                              We don't need to keep reposting the same crap here.
