    Default Watch that next turn, it's a doozy!

    From the wide world of You Tube comes this example of how not to arrive on the scene of a working fire. Seems to be from Queensland, AU.

    Enjoy!

    I'm pretty sure that if I was driving the first thing I would have done was spit all the seat cushion out of my mouth that I sucked up my *****..!

    Ahh, thanks for pointing that out. So, how do they put water on it? Do they spray the water on the ground, and the water runs up the walls?

    OMG, apparently not to be outdone by the "Dukes of Hazard" Aussie move, some of our brothers on this side of the pond decided that they'd do this with thier engine:

    I like when the guy filming says "there putting on a show for us"
    You need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the duct tape.

    Holy crap! I puckered up when I saw that!! Imagine what the officer on the rig was thinkin!!

    Oh, and by the way: while we might find this video a bit funny to watch, lets keep in mind that that rig was literally millimeters away from going over, and it would have wiped out about 15 people on the sidewalk!
