Thinking about when the wall of the salt warehouse collapsed and it turned out to just be full of loose salt, like a child might imagine
@prehensile So in the great maple syrup heist, they just had to drill a hole in the building, causing the syrup inside to pour out.
@prehensile it's when you see them moving it around with common earth moving hardware you get freaked out.
@prehensile I am surprised there's even a building, usually salt is just stored in piles in the open with maybe some kind of floor that will prevent rain from washing it into the ground
@prehensile they seriously dumped bulk materials against an unreinforced masonry wall? And somehow expected that this wouldn't happen???
@matias93 the best part is that the exact same thing happened 20 years earlier and they just rebuilt the wall the same way
@prehensile imagining the phone call from the owners of those cars to their insurance
Yeah my car is full of salt. Won’t start now. Too much salt
@cinebox no no, more salt than that. a lot of salt. sorry, I can't check the VIN, it's under the salt
@prehensile god I must’ve passed by this building a million times. I had no idea the wall collapsed. this is incredible
