Driving a Backhoe Down a Cliffside Doesn’t Strike Us As Particularly Intelligent

Don’t try this at home, kids. A construction worker uses the bucket on his excavator to stabilize his vehicle as he slides down a hill.

This was definitely not in the user’s manual on his first day on the job. Despite being a bit crazy, it’s amazing to watch this guy surf his excavator down a hill face-first.

But it’s very dangerous. As one Youtube commenter said: “Credit where credit’s due, but it still doesn’t strike me as a particularly intelligent action, all things considered.” Not smart, true, but very cool, I’ll give him that.
