    Just think the poor bugger had to stack those tires in the exact position before unloading the next pipe.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    There is still a lot of air in those tires, after the pipe falls and closes off the hole in the top tire, all the remaining air has to escape from the the small spaces between the tires. You can see the dust cloud the escaping air makes as the pipe falls.

    I have actually seen this method used with concrete pipe. I always wondered how many times it took to learn where to stack the tires?

    Seen a lot of fails using this method. Most pipes like this are not strong to take the pressure sideways like that.
