All fun and games until you hit a pothole or even a tiny pebble, and you go from having a fun time to having no time left
Right? If the truck brakes just a little bit too suddenly while they’re anchored on behind the wheels, what do they think is going to happen?
I am a UPS driver, and one time leaving a stop outside this guys house, I glanced in my rear view monitor and saw some kids on their scooters and bikes about 10 feet behind my truck, totally reasonable distance so I put my truck In drive to move forward and they all lunged to hold on to the side handles and steps around my rear bumper, and when I let off the throttle and gently braked they all ran into my bumper with their scooters and bikes, I was only going maybe 3mph, any faster and they definitely would have hit so hard they would have been injured. I was livid. I got out and started telling their dad that was standing outside watching, and he was like “oh they were doing that? Haha, yeahh”
I proceeded to tell him this truck weighs 20,000lbs and I would squish them all like bugs and never even feel the bump. Went right over the dads head but some of the kids were looking green at the gills of my description of what would happen to their bones and gray matter as I rolled over them with all that weight. The next time I saw them they all waited at the curb patiently for me to leave.
I got a similar rundown from an old farmer I worked for I wasn’t paying attention around a seeder while he was lowering the side wings of it almost got crushed.
I grew up on a farm, never had that "nearly crushed" moment because my dad always took the time to explain *why* damn near every tool or machine in that barn was nickednamed "the Widowmaker". I was taught to just look at any moving part, and imagine what would happen if my sleeve got caught in it or something.
Shit like this is fucking terrifying, stomache fell out my ass when that dude jumped in front of the tires. More kids need to spend time on farms to learn the kind of crazy shapes that machines will twist you into.
A guy in my town was working at a mushroom farm, he was working on a grinding machine when one of his arms got caught in the machine, he stuck his second arm in the machine to try and pull his other arm out but got the second one stuck too. Lucky someone was working on a tractor outside when they heard screaming and rushed inside to see what was going on, he managed to pull the guy out of the machine, but the grinder tore off both his arms and the guy was sent immediately to the hospital.
hold on I think I've heard this one before, was his mom able to visit him at the hospital?
Not sure but I read in the papers he finally got work compensation around the beginning of the year. Btw is the guy your thinking of from Australia QLD?
what the fuck ??
But it is legend. I knew where you were going,.....
The owner of the farm I worked on as a kid would throw a piece of wood or something into one of the machines and just say "that's your arm" and walk away. Never stuck my hands anywhere near any moving parts.
Thatd be all the explanation I’d need. 😅
Haha, I might just steal this one 🤣
My brother was calving on the farm across from our house, i think it was maybe 3 week placement as part of his vetmed uni course. In that time he managed to get hit across the face by the tines on the tellehandler and backed into by a trailer. He was fine after both but visibly shook after both.
Maybe dad wanted to be child free? 🤷♂️
His plan lwas foiled
The kids in my neighborhood do this. Asshats.
The worst bit is they will stop the friction between the road and the tyre.
This world stop the type tyre spinning as they got ran over.....
Kinda like slamming the breaks on, when driving on ice.
I'm just suprised that the wheels on the rollerblades haven't fragmented everywhere at this speed
Right?! Modern roller blade are lit!
Thank god it wasn't in Montreal
I fully expected somebody to be run over
agreed. thought i was on something akin to r/meatcrayon for a second
If something happened it wouldn't be posted there though.
Meat highliter lmao
If you wanna have a laugh, just put ‘meat’ before any art supply
Friend of mine (deceased) called it a human eraser.
Friction...an unknown concept to these kids :) Friction and ball bearings, what's the worse that could happen
Seems like they're pretty experienced. Stupid, but experienced.
They appear to be wearing helmets, there has been at least one "incident" before.
I don’t see helmets, just stupid hair on stupid heads that will probably be stupid stains on the highway someday if they don’t wise up.
Ah wait you’re right
safety comes first
Oh I was waiting to see brake lights come on
Forget it, the potholes will take them out sooner.
Inwas waiting for that but that has to be the smoothest toad ive ever seen and wanna know where that road is at. Im impressed and want to visit that countries roads. And those rollerblades have some really good bearings to be hanging that speed
Based on the tuktuk passing the truck, and the nastaliq script, I'd say Pakistan.
When they went in front of the tire..
I cringed as they passed the wheels...
I audibly cringed. Holy shit thats stupid.
I’m lying in bed going “hnnngggg” to myself watching this. Such fools!
Who wouldn't want to be a human toothpaste tube?
One fucking pebble...
Do you want your internal organs wrapped around the wheel of a semi? Because this is how you get your internal organs wrapped around the wheel of a semi.
You keep saying internal organs but after getting wrecked these guys are going to have external organs.
Hahaha - so true!
From rolling roadkill to greasy spot in the road.
It's all fun and games until someone gets their internal organs wrapped around the wheel of a semi.
it will also crush their massive balls
Good thing they don't have brains to lose.
I was rollerblading one time, was skating along and hit a tiny pebble, my front wheel broke and I fell down. Cut up and bleeding, I was happy I wasn’t going any faster… putting way too much faith in those 25 cent wheels
Bro I did something similar on my long board, I was trying to carve like the pros. It was so dumb looking back. I some how didn’t hit my head but fucked up my knee and palms
Know a kid who's a vegetable from taking a header off a longboard. Shits no joke.
Yeah ok, so there's a very real risk of an immediate and brutal death from so much as a matchstick on the road, but the payoff is ~~being called fuckwits by strangers on the internet~~ fame.
This is the single handed most dangerous thing I’ve ever seen.
Truck brakes. Under they go
How do people, kids or otherwise, think this is a good idea?
The red shirt guy looks about 10 years old. What a bunch of dumbasses. Wonder how many of them are still alive.
Truck go vroom. Skate go fast? How bad?
If one of the bearings in their wheels fail it’s game over. Those bearings are likely not designed for that high of sustained speeds
Tried something like this in undergrad, and my wheels melted and expanded then fused to the chassis when I stopped. Was very surprising.
This is crazy. But it does look fun. It’s easy to forget about the stupid shit you do when you’re a kid, out of foolishness and enjoyment. When you’ve done something so many times you get complacent about the dangers. I bet these kids didn’t even contemplate the notion that they might get hurt doing this.
One pebble away from meeting the maker.
At that speed those wheels are gonna give out soon enough. And then he’ll be a stain
“Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.” ― George Carlin. Here's some of them right now!
Do people just never stop honking in india, they must go through alot of horn replacements.
In a lot of places, honking isn’t used the same as it is in UK or America. It’s more of an “I’m here, I’m here” than antagonistic
[That time](https://twitter.com/MumbaiPolice/status/1223090017397960705?s=20&t=l8b9Y00UJNhlyhFp5XYkjQ) the Mumbai Police connected decibel metres to their stop lights to make the signal stay red if the honking hit 85 dB
I wonder if that was effective enough to be installed in other places in the area.
I fucking love India's sense of humour sometimes. Honk more, wait more. Priceless.
HOW CAN SHE HONK!?
Yeah, I'm not sure what I'd do if I was the driver. Basically, any turning or breaking would probably kill them. I probably would very slowly veer into the shoulder and get my foot off the gas to slow down without breaking.
Then I'd come out of the truck with a bludgeon and beat some sense into them with it. LoL
That's not India.
I don’t think so, either.
yeah the truck has arabic on it. Not India. Indian muslims dont use arabic script. Its used but rare. This is probably pakistan, they like to think thay are arabs.
That's not arabic, that's urdu. The official language in Pakistan. Also, how do they like to think they're arabs? arabs are arabs, Pakistanis are Pakistanis. Simple.
That truck is too shiny and too long for it to be in India…
So that’s how all those people ended up there…
That was hard to watch
Physics. Sketchy, but simple physics. I used to do dumb shit like that on a skateboard.
That looks dangerous.
No kidding! :-)
One pothole and ur done
anxiety lvl 100
This not behind, that's under a semi!
They're still on Sega Genesis out there.
Holy fucking shit.
Those are some impressive bearings.
How are the wheels not on fire or just completely gone are they really made to go that fast?
Don’t get in front of the wheels! Holy shit.
Gotta be pretty confident that there’s not gonna be any debris theyll trip over.
I seen a dude get his head popped by a bus wheel on here and now I see this
Don't supposed they considered the driver potentially having to spend the rest of his life knowing he'd liquidised these kids.
That’s a great idea because the roads in India are the best in the world, right
Idiots are gonna traumatized a poor truck driver when he gets to a weigh station and his tires are covered in blood. Bad enough when people try to use semis to unalive themselves.
And let me guess, if one of them fall and get squished between the tires the truck driver will be the one to blame right ?
Woah. This totally puts skyscraper-parkour to rest. Even if this is dumb and dangerous, come on, semi-truck roller blade skitch with no helmet is straight up fearless.
At least falling off a tower gives you a couple seconds before you are absolutely fucking mangled to hell.
That’s dudes conscious did not have his back.
I was hoping it wouldn’t end with one or more of them getting flattened. Ugh.
Is a cool presentation of inertia tbf
I am an ex-muslim and studied Sharia laws, yet I don't understand what you want to say
....and people wonder whatever happened with the sudden disappearance of rollerblading at the height of it's popularity years ago ...🙄......
omg I was incredibly tense watching this
Family rides together
I don’t forgive you
Can anyone explain to me what the average bearing rating for inline scooters would be and also, at what rpm and speed would they fail/explode?
That’s gotta be one of the stupidest things I’ve ever seen someone do
They better hope those little bearings don’t decide to lock up suddenly.
Charles Darwin approves
It’s very obvious their lives are worth a lot less than mine…
Just 1 pothole...
Is fuel that expensive?
Uff I hate that place
one wrong move and it'll be half days out with the undertaker
This is like watching those fish that clean whales flock around the whales, but those fish at least have a purpose
Why do I only find these kind of videos of people in Middle East and Asia?
I didn't realise that I had anxiety until I watched these rollerdorks.
One pebble to the wheels in front of that tire and it’s all over before you know what even happened.
Those fucks trust their wheel bearings more than I trust my significant other
This reminds me of ghiaccio from jojo
Free organ upgrade!! Internal to wireless in just a few seconds!!
they should try this on Indian roads
It's all fun untill its time for that Truck to hit some break
There like extra brake pads waiting for their time to shine
Sorry but that looks like fun.
You can tell it's India/around India by the constant honking
Might as well get some gas while you're there
Who needs a car in L.A.? We have the best public transportation system in the world.
Some solid bearings
These people are entirely to calm doing this!
How is he not getting the death wobble from the shear amount of speed.
Great way to make your innards become outards.
Looks fun though
I clinched my butthole so hard
So much anxiety watching this... Why do I do this to myself?…
What country is this? How are the roads so smooth?
Huh, always wondered how road pizza was made. Guy in front of the tires is going to be a fresh stain on a roafway one day...
Am I wrong for hopping they would end up getting hurt because the truck would brake or some shit?
I've seen alot of these lately... no fail videos yet?
