You Can See It Coming From A Mile Away: Russian Icicle Removal Goes As Expected

January 16, 2019


This is a video from Saratov, Russia of a work crew removing some very large icicles from the front of a building. Now I'm not sure what they expected to happen, but exactly what I expected to happen happened, and that building is going to need a couple new awnings now. No word if these guys will be the same group responsible for installing those awnings, but I can't wait to watch that video either.

Keep going for the video, but skip to around 0:40 for the action while I speculate whey they didn't try solving this problem with some good old fashioned fire.

Thanks to Jeremy K, who agrees they should have hired Cyclops to melt those icicles with his laser-vision.

    Ya'd think they'd knock down the lowest ones first...

    I'm pretty sure those guys aren't paid by the hour, they got that job done WAAAAY too quickly. ;)

    "Fuck if I know how to get it down, just give me the stick already!"

    Significant number of people die in Russia every year due to icicle structures like this one falling on them. If some property damage results from them being removed clumsily, that's still a far better outcome.

    Huh... I thought Russians considered human life expendable. Shows how much I know.
