Here's the story of how one electrician used some McGuyver-like work to undo a rule breaking tool. It gets pretty technical. For more intriguing technical stories of destruction, here's how this guy let a farm owner destroy his own car.
We've seen stories of big company owners tripping over their own hubris, like this incompetent owner who mistakenly fired a special contractor, and this time there's more math. This guy gives an extremely detailed account of exactly how a whole bunch of water, a valve, and an overly zealous farm owner gave himself the business.
It's time for the revenge story of the week, and man, is this one a treat. This entitled sound engineer got what was coming his way. It sounds like he was just the kind of presumptuous brat that needed a wakeup call. Fortunately, the crew he worked with and generally drove insane was more than ready to give it to him. And boy oh boy, did that wakeup call come in a brutal fashion. We're talking the guy getting ditched hundreds of miles from home, and eventually having to get picked up by his dad!
As funny as it is to see a guy be this excited about a train, it's also really nice to see someone who's genuinely brimming with childlike glee over something that they're genuinely interested in. When was the last time you freaked out on video over anything? Go forth and be free, like Excited Train Guy.
Sometimes it's funny to laugh at other people's misery. I don't know where that comes from, but it's a part of human nature that I accept. That's why this thread on Twitter is absolutely hilarious. This guy really suffers when he learns about the imperial system. Take a deep breath, bro. It is all going to work out. This is a good and enlightening development for you.
To get a running jump, the robot plans out its path, much like a human runner: As it detects an approaching obstacle, it estimates that object’s height and distance. The robot gauges the best position from which to jump, and adjusts its stride to land just short of the obstacle, before exerting enough force to push up and over. Based on the obstacle’s height, the robot then applies a certain amount of force to land safely, before resuming its initial pace.
It was able to successfully conquer hurdles up to 18-inches tall while going about 5mph.
Here’s a less threatening video of the cheetah running across some grass, but don’t be deceived by the innocent-looking prance.
