    When I see stuff like this I automatically think Asia. I know that might not be politically correct but it usually is.

    When I first saw the video I was thinking they were trying to steal the excavator was why they were trying to load from the bank instead of a loading dock.

    It's great that there are people like this around to entertain us.
    I have a 1972 Land Rover Series III Truck Cab/Pick-Up and a 1962 Land Rover Series 2a Carawagon Camper.

    And I thought "We're gonna need a bigger boat!" only happened in 'Jaws"


    Steven Spielberg’s 1975 thriller Jaws is widely credited as the first modern blockbuster, and it also made an entire generation pause and think, "You know what, on second thought maybe I don’t want to go swimming right now." As beloved and influential as the movie is, it’s seeped its way into a permanent position in popular culture, and one of the biggest instances of this is the phrase, "You’re gonna need a bigger boat." The line is funny enough on its own, but the way it came to be may be even more hilarious.

    One of the most quotable lines in movie history, it happened by accident. Writer Carl Gottlieb recently talked with The Hollywood Reporter, and revealed how the line came to be. Filmed largely on the water, the equipment for Jaws was all housed on a barge (nicknamed the USS Garage Sale), which, thanks to stingy producers, only had a single support boat to help keep it steady, a task the small craft was not up to. The fact that they needed a bigger boat became an in-joke on the set.

    "At what point sis they figure out their boat was too small "

    Just about when it was settling on the bottom! and the excavator is a new type of concrete boots.

    The operator (loose term) did try to claw his way out & there was no snorkel for him or the esky. Hope rescuer learns from first stupidity.
