I kept waiting for him to swing out enough to hit the buildings as he passed them . . .
The idle musings of a former military man, former computer geek, medically retired pastor and now full-time writer. Contents guaranteed to offend the politically correct and anal-retentive from time to time. My approach to life is that it should be taken with a large helping of laughter, and sufficient firepower to keep it tamed!
The last words of a redneck "Hold my beer and watch this."
Alright, a living wrecking ball.
It looked like fun to me, but I would hate to see what would happen if he were a bit closer to that building on the right.
With the right heavy equipment operator, and the correct harness/rigging, I would totally do that. The operator seemed to know exactly where that house to the right was, you can see him slow the swing radius right on time.
The ironic thing is that they are using safety gear to accomplish this stunt.
Compared to some of the things we did back in my younger days, that's rather tame. Some of the things we did when I worked the Texas oil fields would cause a person to have a heart attack today.
