This is one of those plans that looks like it should have been doomed from the start. Even watching it a second time it looks like those planks are gonna snap and send that truck into the drink, but hey, sometimes it's good to be proven wrong. Whoever trusted their truck on those planks has earned themselves the insight to probably not do it again.

Weird, Stupid and Absurd Car Modifications

From the idiotically expensive to the low budget car mods and fixes, there's a lot of room on the road for absurdity. That's not to say it takes technical expertise to make your car look like a bigass shark, it's just that it says more about you as a person than the car itself. Either way, as long as it's not going on our cars, may the dubious car mods flow freely.

Just in case you were unaware, the 11foot8+8 bridge has developed quite the notorious reputation online for its track record of claiming the roofs of trucks that fail to properly map out the height of the bridge vs. the height of the truck. Fortunately, it doesn't appear as if anyone is getting injured in the process. Just some blows to the egos.

In a sterling example of crap spatial awareness, these guys paid no attention to height specs and tried to park a U-Haul in a low-ceilinged parking garage. What started off as a "whoopsie" quickly turned into a "nononononononono" as they tried to turn around and burst a sprinkler pipe overhead. The moment of panic as that suspect brown water gets let loose is a thing of beauty.

Of all the horrible things to be surprised by, "slowly tipping concrete mixing truck coming right at you" is probably way up on the list. After that thing tipped for what seemed like ages, everyone got out unscathed. It's just probably a better idea in general to not try to pull of any slick moves in a concrete truck.

This truck driver had clearly patiently waited and trained his whole life for this glorious moment. Sit back and watch the spectacle that is a trucker driver and cop successfully using transmissions to end a car chase. Pretty impressive stuff right here.

These Naga villagers pulled off a mad coordinated group effort to get a truck out of a massive ditch. You don't really see this many people working together on one thing, and it's pretty crazy to see what people can do when they're all focused on the same goal.

Boss Forbids Use of Work Truck, Surprised When No Work Is Done

We've all had penny pinching bosses who ask too much, but sometimes they set themselves up for failure. It's not a lot of fun to have a boss who tries to enforce contradicting rules. He didn't really give these guys a choice, and to top it all of, went totally incommunicado. Here's one where management illegally banned overtime pay but IT got it all back.

She makes it look way too easy. It's no small feat at all being able to quick shift a Detroit semi truck like she's doing. A true master of the craft right here.

Concrete Worker Battles Corrupt Manager Following His Own Instructions

Rumor has it that there's a truck rental place near this bridge. So, you can imagine an ongoing series of scenarios where truck drivers are lectured on not underestimating this bridge, and then each driver proceeds to do just that. Even after they raised the bridge the extra eight inches, people still manage to crash into it with a reckless abandon. I mean, come on!

World of Engineering tweeted this video with the comment "trust me I'm engineer," which should say a lot of implicit things about how risky this solution could actually be were you to try it at home.

Guy Keeps Parking on Property, So Owner Starts Charging Him

This dude wouldn't stop parking on their property and making things a problem, so they turned it into an expensive place to park. This sounds like the kind of thing you can only do if you have a lot of patience and an extremely bored sheriff. When neighbors get into disputes, things can get ugly, like this neighbor who hammered nails into a fence and got their yard redecorated, or this guy who towed in pro revenge on his petty neighbor.

Times Large Trucks Were Absolute Failures

Seriously, just how? Hopefully everyone in these various positions of fail ended up being alright. Imagine explaining some of these to the boss:
"Yeah, it was just like that when I returned from lunch."

Guy Tries To Sell Ford, Choosing Beggar Crashes The Scene

Amazingly, no one was injured in this Jay, Maine paper mill explosion. And as an interesting bonus we have the commentary of all the guys in their trucks watching the whole thing go down. Around a minute in, the pulp starts to land.
