"QUANTUM SHOT" #51
Link - by A. Abrams



Sometimes machines may need a little extra... exercise.

(... and saying "Oops!" just doesn't cut it any more)

A very special kind of billboard - "Oklahoma Truck Supply":

Some tractors are simply amazing! -






Trains can also play these games:

...while smaller machinery can explore lofty heights:





or enjoy the company of each other :)




In many cases humans are to blame, with their excessive inventiveness...
when they're trying to fit things inside -






Load things -





or fix things:



or when they do not know when to stop:






Sometimes the machines fight back. Especially the bigger ones:
crushing...





and intimidating:



Humans are no match against them:



- but in the end justice prevails:






...begging for mercy



Some "battle droids" find peaceful retirement:



and some remain a mystery to the very end, like today's "Mystery Photo":

The Picture that has a bus in a hole in the ground with a stone bridge behind ( Aqueduto ), is very real, is in Campolide , Lisbon, Portugal, my hometwon.
Great collection of pictures, very nice.

hopefully noone was hurt in any of these accidents, but you have to wonder "what were they thinking?" Like the truck with it's bucket up hitting the freeway overpass..You didn't notice it was up? You would have heard the wind traveling through and the resistance. Newer bucket trucks are now equipped with safety features that TELL you when your truck is not properly lowered to prevent accidents like this. but I would think it would be common sense.

The red tractor/backhoe "transformer" is actually computer generated. It's from a video.
