Congo, that’s quite a collection of “poor life choices.” Along with “when raccoons attack”. I don’t feel at all bad for laughing at all of it.

Is that a magic lantern at the center of the magic roundabout?

Best guess is moisture on the ground caused a steam explosion.

Similarly, best guess is they’re wearing enough gear there weren’t any major injuries.

I didn't know cotton candy dissolves on contact with water. Nice.

This belongs on those “roundabout/to be continued“ reels.

From Bogota.

Not many details yet. Looks like that’s the parking garage next to the escalator.

The thing is, that engine was clearly due for a rebuild anyway, so this just saved them a few steps.

The truck driver saw oncoming traffic, so he/she moved over. So the car passing on left would be able to merge ahead of the oncoming traffic.

Two possibilities:
1) Trucker was watching to the left, and didn't see the fool passing on the right.
2) Trucker saw the fool on right, but had to decide between a head-on collision (if left passer blocked), or a roll (if right passer blocked).

I suspect it was #2, the truck only moved partway to the right. Both passers were fools.

The guy in the red car is (hopefully) a LOT better off than the guy on the left would have been.

I admit I wasn’t able to get a confirmation on the injury situation with this one, but it looks pretty survivable, so I went with it because it was just too stupid not to.

Yeah... there is an important distinction between “woops” and “watch people die”.

You know, my previous commentary wasn’t constructive.

I didn’t see the videos, but excessively disturbing things can most certainly be woops.

The distinction I was trying to draw was between what requires a warning and what doesn’t, which in my head I’ve been drawing at (more or less) death or visible injury.
