How many times have you left or seen something left where it should fall off and it rides the whole jump there????

I wondered where I left my Coke....

I've had coffee stay on a bumper for a short jump (like 30 miles) but it always amazes me when a drink stays on my counter for a long one (like 200 or better).

When I was young and dumb and full of cum I left a bank deposit bag on the roof of my car and went all the way from the restaurant I was managing to the bank with it there (20 miles).

I left 2 very heavy 12,000 volt neon transformers sitting on the back end of the bed on the boom truck after servicing a hi-rise sign last summer, drove about 60 miles back to the shop & they were still there but had slid back over the edge about a third of their length. Puckered my sphincter when I saw it, that could have been a real bad deal.

I made a trip of about 15 miles or so with my playland, and left some paperwork on the spare tire which was mounted on the hitch, .... no clip board, or nothing, just laid the paper (2-3 sheets) and got to the spot, went to unhook and there it set.

I think about that all the time and it still amazes me.

I left a bottle of water on the slide part of the Raiders. Needless to say it made it frm Gaithersburg MD to Rutland VT.

Anyone ever try putting a cup of water in the dead center of a pirate ship ride (Pharaohs Fury, Sea Dragon, Etc) and run the ride? It always amazes me at how it doesnt move... lol

Soda cans behind pickup cabs and in areas where no air travels always remain in the same spot when I try. The old bottle of water trick on our Wisdom Tornado is a fun test for our NYC inspectors who want to see if the ride is leveled correctly. The bottle of water on the Fury would be interesting.

Put a full water bottle on the base of the car spinner and if it falls the ride is not leveled. Most of the time the bottle never falls even if the ride is off. The inspectors just like to bust balls.

I guess our roads aren't as bad as many want us to think.

Let me get this straight. The inspector uses a bottle of water to check for level?
