didn't see that, was so busy watching the power lines.

Don't chainsaws have a failsafe? If you aren't gripping it's supposed to stop?

AFAIK, they do.

I’m sure it wasn’t running, but it still has to leave a mark.

Yes, gas chain saws have a clutch. If you let go of the throttle, the engine falls to idle. Clutch disengages, and the chain stops. This usually happens in seconds.

In addition to that feature, there is a chain break - effectively a handbrake for the chain. If you set that, the chain will not move no matter what else you do.

But I don’t get the situation here. He is likely a professional given the gear, but he hasn’t strapped the helmet on, and he is standing on a simple ladder and not in a lift. He is at the top of his ladder, but there is a taller ladder by his side that is falling when hit by the branch. The chainsaw appears to be resting in a cut on a branch. I suppose it caught there? But why is the woman handing him something? I’d love to know what is going on here.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

It’s a little hard to tell in the GIF, but they’re grinding their rims on the curb.

My guess is he dropped something important.

The ladder isn’t really keeping him up there, it’s the rope attached to his safety harness. Coming back down to get it would be a pain, so she brought it up to him.

Judging by how she gets off the ladder, they’re not super-high off the ground. Interestingly, the bottom of the ladder is swinging, but the top stays still. Maybe it’s hanging off the tree?

I guess this is what happens if you don’t properly vent gasoline vapors out of the hull.

Guy on the red cart appears to have saved the plane. Looks like that was his intent too. Hope he got a fat bonus.

No picture/GIF, but yesterday I see a school bus surrounded by cop cars. No ambulance, so that’s a good sign.

As I get closer, it sure looks like the driver has her head in her hands.

As I pass... ooooooh... totaled three parked cars. Time for a new career, I guess.

I'm guessing it wasn't this version then:

That looks like the act of "the CDL student who graduated at the bottom of his class."

I dunno. Out here in Hoosierland, when the weather gets icy, there are a couple of Interstates (65 north of Indy, and 70 east of Indy) that become pinball tables for semis. It's a given that either (or both) of them will be closed for awhile on any given winter day because some 18-wheeler got sideways and/or upside down. 65 is especially prone to trouble because it runs through flatland and gets a lot of heavy cross-winds. It's the corridor where most of Indiana's windfarms are located.

This is why they thought playing fast and loose with truck licenses was enough to throw the governor of Illinois in the slam.

Not Blago. Before him. About half our governors end up in prison.

Nowadays I see dump truck drivers here in San Antonio - not just the traditional trucks, but extra long semi trailer dump trucks, bottom dump trailers, etc. - careening along the road/highway/freeway/sidestreet as if they were driving their super-riced Eclipse... Terrifying to say the least. It's almost all dumpers, too. Somebody is clearly not being too careful with issuing those CDLs.

Thread says it’s “intentional” in that the pilot was trying to avoid severing the hose from the tanker plane.
