Woopsie: How Not To Load A Truckload Of Pipes Onto A Barge

September 26, 2016

This is a video from Ukraine of a truck hauling pipes trying to transfer those pipes to a barge. Things do not go as intended, and SPOILER: the entire truck ends up in the drink. At first I thought the driver never got out, but after watching again I noticed he actually bails out around 1:20 when things really start going south (he looks like The Penguin wearing a flannel shirt). I love it when stuff like this happens. Mostly because I like to remind myself that, no matter what, somebody out there is having a worse day than I am. There is comfort in that. Also: unfortunately for that guy in red, it appears the man standing behind him was able to upload his video to Youtube first.

Keep going for the video. Oh, I don't think this was actually the truck driver's fault -- there was nothing preventing the barge from moving when the truck drove onto it.

Thanks to Damien, who would have just reversed his truck at full speed then slammed on the brakes and let momentum move those pipes onto the truck. Phuck yeah, physics.
