The only dubmass is whoever set up those lockers.

Hey, those look just like the lockers in which I keep my Faberge-eggs-filled-with-genetically-enhanced-super-viruses collection!

what the fark is the point of a locker if you can pick them up 6 at a time and walk away with them?

Well, it's easy to nick someone's wallet and put it your pocket on the way out. Try doing that with a locker though....

/Actually, I had a pair of jeans with pockets that held 3 liter bottles with no problem, I might have been able to fit a locker in those....

That's my favorite. I like the wild flinging jump for freedom.

I don't think it's faked.

It's just a cheap-ass workplace.

Good for suing the company though, if any of the employees were smart enough to take advantage.

Happened to my sister in High School. She got tossed right into her full size locker to avoid being crushed. Cool story?

This. Something about seeing someone scramble about in mortal terror is just frickin hilarious to me. For instance, right around 1:21 in this (new window) video, the chick in black, beating feet when Pac Man flies into the aisle wrecking shiat. What must be going through her mind? It's like (Ok, I'm laughing again), look how scared they are. They think they're gonna die. LOL.

I'm like crying, I'm laughing so hard.

/I must just be a bastard
//still laughing
///gotta watch this again

aspAddict: Woulda been funnier if it had been server racks.

Seen it - sort of.

Back in 1998 my company moved the data center from A to B and our heavy duty prod servers were about 3 feet high and stacked (and glued) together in stacks of three. And on wheels.

When I interviewed with them I saw someone brush against a stack and it swayed a bit and I asked if they ever had any topple over. The manager said "bite your tongue." heh.

So one day a dipstick was tasked with getting serial numbers off the motherboards and he couldn't see one so well so he pushes the stack with his foot to rotate it. Oh, I didn't mention the 6"x6" holes cut in the raised floor for cabling. A wheel drops in the hole in the floor and a 9 foot high stack of three servers (remember, this *was* 1998) topples into the next stack. And the next. And the next. 9 stacks in all (27 servers) and the final stack hit a rack with a UPS, monitor and keyboard in it....being just moved it wasn't bolted down...and flung it across the room.

Since we were just moving in, the security cams weren't active yet...GODAMMIT.

Out of the 27 servers that fell and got twisted and smashed, only three didn't come back up.

/for the record, the guy wasn't canned, mainly because it was a disaster waiting to happen
//After that we secured the stacks together with what we named "Hayden Bars," named after him (named hanged to protect the stupid)
///It wasn't long until we got real servers in real racks/cabs, but hey, the company made a metric shiat-ton of money with what we had

Came here to say that. It wuz always gonna happen. Still impressive and funny.

Also came here to say: why aren't toppling dominos a real world example of the domino effect?
