How Not to Use Heavy Equipment

Achimedes once said "Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world." This video verifies that fact...

These guys didn't do their statics calculations given the weight of the swimming pool they were trying to lift over the house, the length of the crane, and the angle from the base. You can lean only "so far" and you will topple. Yep... this video confirms that fact. I don't know why these workers act so surprised.
