    Laying miles of pipe in a ditch at once - GIF

    What do we have here? Butt fused HDPE pipe, that's much easier to fuse aboveground with a purpose-specific wheeled machine? Then once it's fused and pressure tested, this is how it's dropped into a ditch? Is this normal? Or drone-captured footage for internet drama?

    I hate these animated GIFs. Cannot speed them up have to watch the same scene over and over.

    What do you prefer? Short video? MP4 in an embedded video player?

    The greatest advantage of GIFs is that they can be displayed/downloaded/shared just like non-animated GIFs, PNGs, JPEGs, without any special plugins.

    Something that one can jump ahead or go back to a section to see again without having to go through the whole thing, a streaming video
    gives one those options.

    Thanks for the reply.

    That's a good point. I do like the YouTube feature of pausing a video, then advancing frame-by-frame with the period and comma keys. Ideally, though, I agree - GIFs are best for short animations.
