Close Calls: Construction Crane Collapses, Sends Workers Running For Their Lives

April 6, 2018

This is a video from St. Petersburg, Florida of a construction crane working on the new St. Petersburg Police Department headquarters deciding it's constructing days are over and throwing itself to the ground, sending workers running for their lives. Thankfully, nobody was injured, although if I were there I would have faked my own death and moved to the tropics. "Why?" For a new start with Elvis and 2Pac.

Keep going for the whole video.

Thanks to YouCanCallMeJustin, who I will call Dave.

    Your penis must be so big! I love a man who is first to comment first on every single internet article, it really shows he has a meaningful life. - said no woman ever

    What if he humps watermelons?

  • Fartbutt

    That, is a very puzzling question. But I came to the conclusion that if he humps watermelons, he therefore does lead a meaningful life as watermelons cannot speak or an opinion which then cancels out the need for love and existence. He is superior.

  • Doog

    Watermelons also cannot consent, enthusiastically or otherwise.
