Authorities say the worker did not die right away. They say his name will not be released until Friday morning.

What a horrible way to die.

"If a safe starts going, we tell everyone, 'You never try to stop it. You just get out of the way. You don't try to catch it,'" Guida said.

I'm so glad I read tfa. I would have never known not to catch a falling safe.

Poor guy.

I have a safe here at home, not as big as the one in tfa, but big enough that belonged to my Grandfather. When I finally get the fark out of this place, I'm going to abandon the g.d. thing. Getting it in and up one flight of stairs nearly gave three men hernias. They told me if I needed it moved again, don't call them.

At least it wasn't a grand piano.

Sounds like they were working in a small area. He probably couldn't get out of the way quick enough.

Poor guy.

Guida says they often have three to four people moving one safe.

"If a safe starts going, we tell everyone, 'You never try to stop it. You just get out of the way. You don't try to catch it,'" Guida said.


This guy is a bit of an idiot. He's just told the media that his company has a completely reckless attitude to pretty dangerous situations. There are known safe ways to move heavy things around that don't involve risk of death to all involved.

If this guy's company ever has a serious accident like the one in the article then they'll be seriously screwed in any kind of negligence proceedings by what this guy has said.

But witnesses were unharmed. They're safe.

Down safe

Have they opened the safe yet? Because the guy's probably okay. What happens when a safe falls on you is you break through the bottom of the safe, and when the safe opens, you're standing there kind of glassy-eyed with little chirping birds flying around you and a big lump growing out of your head.

Sometimes there's a little white flag in there that you can wave.


/I must have seen that happen a hundred times.

Let me tell you something, all my life I have pitied Wile E. Coyote.
He's farking starving, and all he wants is something to eat. Big crime, right?!?
The this farking bird, sent straight from hell, comes by to tease and mock him several times a day, torturing him and his hunger ravished body with visions of one small meal.
Then, despite his uncannily high IQ and creativity, nothing he does ever works, no matter how well planned. At times even physics and the laws of gravity will suspend themselves or twist just to fark him over! What, does God just hate coyotes, or what?

Oh, and the roadrunner's supposed to be all cute because he makes
that goddamn annoying beeping sound? Really??
It's bullshiat.
The Roadrunner is evil. Wile E. is the good guy.

If I had a million dollars, i would pay the animators at MGM to make me a perfect replica Roadrunner cartoon where the Coyote catches, kills, cooks, and eats the farking roadrunner.
Preferably turning him slowly on a spit over an open fire while he is still alive, slowly basting him as he shrieks in pain.
This would heal a wound deep inside me since childhood...

I bet gravity played a role.

Once the safe is lifted off, just blow some air into one of the victim's thumbs, they pop back out & then give a withering stare.

Police are looking for a young woman who witnessed the scene but left before questioning...

You and millions of others. The coyote did catch the road-runner once, with a large metal robot! Coyote in one hand holding the remote...road-runner captured and held tight in the other hand. I stared at the screen. It couldn't be true. He'd caught him! The game was over! The coyote pressed a button his remote (set to EAT)...I'm thinking the giant metal coyote robot is going to eat the road-runner...YES!!! This is awesome!!!

...no...wait...

OH COME ON!!!...the robot ate the coyote instead.


First time I lost it as a kid. Snapped completely. Nearly knocked that old tv off it's stupid little wheeled stand.

I knew then and there that the world is not fair, and it never will be.

That road-runner was a bully.

Someone needs to look into proxies. Even if they block popular web proxy sites, you can set one up on your home computer to bounce your youtube videos off.
