Ah man, I was working in underground utilities in my early 20’s and dropped a manhole cover on my hand trying to put it back one day. Somehow, in my ridiculous, perplexingly-masochistic, split second decision making, my body reflexed to catch it to make it didn’t “fall in” the hole (it didn’t even dawn on me that the manhole cover is the same size as the hole so it will never “FALL IN”). Long story short, I broke just about every one of my fingers on my right hand (or at least I can assume b/c 2 were visibly broke and the other ones I could feel a ridge or fracture on when the swelling went down a few days later). Do not try to “catch” manhole covers or get your fingers around them at all lol - they WILL NEVER fall in a hole, and it’s just better to never put your fingers around them anyways!

it's one of these things,an extra light weight cover or a super jacked guy, becuz those lids are normally extremely hefty. They gotta be so trucks don't pop em off the hole, which, likely what happened here. A lightweight lid got popped off with the right truck and the right speed.

Does it need to be a specific speed? I thought if the truck goes fast enough it will pop off.

3

u/kic7766 Jan 22 '22

Just the proper speed, at fast enough speeds, the tires kind of pop over the rim of the lid, strike the lid, even though it only drops small fractions of an inch, add speed to the truck weight, it can once in a while be just perfect enough when the tire comes off the lid on the other end it bounces up with the energy put into it from truck weight and speed, thats why they got to be so fuckign heavy. Kind of like if you have hard ground say a concrete floor - put a washer on the floor and hit it with a hammer if you are quick enough t pull the hammer back out of the way the washer will bounce.

Looks like a ME country, so they rarely get any rain and the extra pressure from drainage caused the cover to get blown off. When I lived in Riyadh, storms were very infrequent (maybe 2-4 days a year) but heavy and could flood roads and (especially) underpasses in less than an hour.

I used to have to work in manholes like this... you block traffic, put a cage around it, and most importantly, you ventilate the hole. There's a fan with a big yellow tube that goes into the manhole so air can be circulated through it. If you just climbed down into it, there's a decent chance that there isn't enough oxygen to breathe, and you'll die so quickly that you can't save yourself.

One time I was in a traffic jam for 20 minutes on my way to work. Eventually I got to the front of the queue and found a big tree branch had fallen on the road and was blocking our lane (road with a single lane in both directions), so the queue was caused by our lane waiting for a gap in traffic coming the other way so we had a chance to drive past the branch.

I got out and dragged it off the road, which at least 100 drivers ahead of me hadn’t bothered doing (and that’s assuming it fell down immediately before I joined the back of the line) and for my trouble got beeped by the driver immediately behind saying “Just fucking drive round it! You’re making me even later!”.

u/Satesh400 Jan 22 '22

I've seen this as well, it's infuriating.

The worse example I've seen in person is a half coiled extension cable in the road, cars mostly avoiding it, but some lucky to not get it wrapped around their axle as it bounced up from their tyres. We pulled over, threw it in the boot of the car and got on with our lives, took 20 seconds.

3

u/Deyaa1989 Jan 22 '22

If people worked collaboratively smart enough, each person could have flashed the hazard button and slowed down the vehicle a tiny bit more than the person in the front, few cars and the place would be much safer for that guy and everyone else, rather than suddenly stopping the car in the middle of the highway. I could be wrong, though.

Nonetheless this man is very brave and I can see some people tried slowing down,,,

What is that hand gesture he is doing? Looks like this 🤌 Does that have some connotation from wherever this guy is from? I have only seen Italians use it when speaking with their hands lol. Not trying to be disrespectful. Genuinely curious.

🤌 is used to signify "wait" or "be patient" in Arabic.

I remember subconsciously doing that gesture to a waitress in Italy because I had not yet decided what to order and wanted her to wait a bit

u/pileofcrustycumsocs Jan 22 '22

It’s ok in Italy, if your a local 🤌 is your hands default resting position

The Arabs use it a lot. It means wait, hang on, have patience, hold your horses, don't get your knickers in a twist, calm the fuck down.

It signifies "just a little" / "just a pinch".
So when applied to this scenario it means "hold on a bit"..... But can be similarly used for measuring items.

The world needs more people like this. See a problem that's not theirs and fix it anyway.

I think the societal proportion of attitudes like this make a bigger difference to good/bad nations than we give credit for.

I'm upset about all of the drivers driving around in the rain with their headlights off. People, please turn on your F'ing lights when driving in the rain, when it's snowing, when it's heavily overcast or foggy, at dusk/dawn, etc.

What a bunch of assholes driving by while dude was in the street

While I agree, it is almost safer to keep moving at a slower pace with hazards on.

I say that because a dead stop on a freeway will potentially cause a really bad crash.

Whereas slowly moving and indicating a hazard will prevent the former.

Same concept as slowly moving past a wreck with Police,Fire, and EMS on scene.
