Well considering the guys probably English the crane operator may have been trying to keep him from catching on fire.

The only people here had their senses of humour repossessed along with all their stuff when they lost their jobs to the virus. However, I thought it was funny. Want to see the end where the sunbather gives the crane operator the finger.

Truly this is every bit as heartbreaking as that Ray Bradbury story that takes place of Venus where it rains all the time except for once a year, and the little girl from Earth is looking forward to it, but her Venusian classmates all hate her since she actually experienced real summers, so they lock her in a closet and then go outside to frolic in the sun and forget about her, and then when they come back in they remember her and let her out and she is very sad.

the crane operator will enjoy a jolly jape in return when someone pulls out a few bolts from the crane!

boy will his face be red!

well, what's left will be red, you may not be able to identify what was his face

Cute, harmless prank. Dumping the 100 gallon bucket of water on him would have likely been too much.

There is a fine line being having some fun at someone else's expense and being a prick. Based on this video it definitely appears to me that the crane operator did not cross that line.

Flowers *for* Algernon, not 'from'.

And you're absolutely right.  It most definitely goes on this list.  As does 'Harrison Bergeron', and 'Time Enough At Last', thank you to those Farkers.

If we're opening nominations to visual entertainment instead of only a 'reading list', then may I just say that 'Grave of the Fireflies' would retire the trophy.

I feel for the guy.  we had our first real warm day with the sun out in full force, and getting to take it in today was about the most joyous feeling ive had in months; sitting out in it reading a book kind of decimated all the negative thoughts I've had the last 6 weeks.

that vitamin D activation is no joke.

A tree grows in Brooklyn.

Just the one tree and everyone is very poor and the main girls dad is an alcoholic and she is like 12 and someone tries to rape her. But she gets to hold a warm cup of coffee every morning that she never drinks, so at least she has that.
