    I’ve had bad days, but not like this poor guy.

    WOW, did they find him?

    I really want to say fake but I'm not sure.

    Cheese factory in England. He was fine, took eight hours to dig him out according to story.

    Older story I guess, but I just ran across it. Can you imagine if stern stacked machines like that, and that happened? People would lose their minds!

    Thus starting the great debated cheeze price fix of 2015.

    I remember this. It sent me down a fork truck accident videos worm hole.

    That would take around 4 days to cleanup. Separating damaged boxes from good ones. Re stacking and re-wrapping the pallets. Then possibly weeks to get a better designed rack system, delivered and installed.

    Thanks for clearing that up because I felt sick when I saw the video, thought there was no way that dude lived.

    Wow, total domino effect. Did he get fired? I'd definitely be hunting for a new job after that. I took out a overhead door with a forklift at a pipeyard i ran once and felt like a total moron. Couldn't find a new job fast enough.

    At our flooring store, we have a 10' steel pole attachment to pick up rolls of carpet or vinyl. About 12 years ago, I put it thru an installers back window while getting him loaded. It was February in Colorado, and his heater was broken. It wasn't a good day. Haven't had an issue since!

    At 4:29 of ChubToad13's link -- that's exactly how we lost two brand new Data General MV/10K mainframe computers... a kajillion years ago.

    I wonder what OSHA (or the British equivalent) would say...

    This might actually have been a lesser disaster at Stern. Cheese is fairly dense and boxed pinballs contain a lot of empty space, so I’d bet a pinball box-sized volume of cheese (yummy) is significantly heavier than a pinball machine. If those shelves had been stacked with pins, they might have been more stable and more resistant to being obliterated by a fairly innocent looking forklift blunder.

    Happy the guy is OK, but the poor bastard is never going to live this one down!

    Every time I see a forklift vid, I think of Klaus.

    Probably NSFW. Watch till the end.

    And the moral of that video is....don’t let women on the factory floor.......
