German heavy equipment builder Liebherr (literally translated, in case you were wondering, as “love man”) recently filmed a stunt for the German TV game show “Wetten Dass?” (Wanna Bet?). Did you know that an excavator, controlled by an operator with no sense of self-preservation, could climb a sixty-five foot tall vertical tower? Did you know it could then do a headstand atop the tower? Yeah, neither did I.
Enjoy the Vivaldi (a little culture for your Monday afternoon) and don’t sweat the fact that you probably don’t speak German. Insanity is a universal language.
