Oh Hell No: Truck Carrying Mobile Home Crosses A Rinky-Dink Bridge

April 27, 2018

This is a video from Yusufeli, Turkey of a truck carrying a mobile home (although it looks like a construction trailer to me) across a river using a tiny hanging wooden bridge. Man, you could not have paid me enough to drive that truck. "I'll give you $100." You set the bridge on fire, I'll back up that hill so I can hit it at max speed.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Tom, who's surprised that truck driver didn't insist the view from the other side of the river is better anyways and they should just set up the house there.

    I wonder how many times they've had to do this? I feel confident that they aren't paid nearly enough considering the risk.

    I imagine that they didn't even do the math or check the bridge specs and just said "Fuck it, we'll test it live!"...

    I don't speak Turkish fluently, but I'm pretty sure the guy at the end there was saying "Oh crap, I've been filming this video vertically. I deserve to die a painful death."

    That's a very Turkish thing to say. Related: Puckle Gun, the only technology to ever be actively racist. Or... uh... religist? Anyway, a gun meant to fire round bullets at "civilized enemies" and square bullets to demonstrate "benefits of Christian civilization" to Muslim Turks.

    In case there was any doubts square bullets are fucking stupid. They don't fly right. You had to carry two barrels and know whether you were fighting "civilized enemies" or "Muslims" and swap out before you engage. Totally doable now but this was the early 1700s.

    Your Turkish is actually quite good. That's exactly what was said.

    Turkeys! Amirite?!?

  • GeneralDisorder

    Turkeys can fly but they mostly don't because they're fucking huge and have claws big enough to fight off smaller predators.
