    Could not do that in the States OSHA would be all over that and shut the operation down... till they brought in some ergonomic motion expert and told them rules say no more then three bricks can be carried at waist level... four with a back brace. And the plank most be four feet wide and have rails 42" in height. Then we need some flotation device working around the water ya know... and a safety rescue crew of at least three.

    That is if they could survive after paying the fines.
    Wow... where did the time go. I could of swore I was only out there for an hour.

      You know, I was so impressed by the feat that I never gave your comments a thought at the time, however, they are absolutely 100% on the money, every one of them, to a fault now.

        I'd seen this before and was wondering how a slacker like that could get by. Only 20 bricks?
        He should be able to carry at least 6 or 8 more in his hands.
        Guaranteed not to rust, bust, collect dust, bend, chip, crack or peel

          I wondering now if those are normal (weight) bricks or not. Id think that many would sink such a small boat.

            They clanked like real bricks.

            You'd think with dust from the bricks he'd have to sneeze now and then. And if so, he'd need to get both feet out of the way when they all fell at once.

              Quick, Someone find the weight of a brick, apply voodoo math to calculate the number of bricks in that pile and the displacement of the boat.. :P

                  Y'all remember those stories of the early high steel workers catching red hot rivets thrown up from the forge on the ground? Caught 'em with tongs, they did.

                      Umm they tossed 'em with tongs but caught them in a catch pan. Look at about 33 sec. in you'll see a photo of the catcher of the rivet gang with it.

                        Makes you wonder how only 5 lost their lives building the Empire State Building, and only one of them fell off a scaffold.

                            No doubt!
