Submitted by: buddy 11 years ago in Entertainment

Test to see if those poles they put in front of government buildings really work.

<i>wow but i havent seen poles like that at the courthouse or anything the ones they have are
like pvc pipe sticking out of the ground</i>

We actually have these infront of our school, they aren`t retractable or anything, just these big ol` concrete pillars sticking about 3 feet out of the ground. Never had any use for `em though, kids just try and jump from one to the other.

That`s ya taxes at work. When they could be ridding the education system of pedofiles, they`re developing a pole that can stop a truck full of sand.

that`s not to stop people from blowing up buildings.. at least all the ones that I have seen are to block areas from cars entering so people can walk around freely in an area without the fear of being hit or dealing with cars.

If terrorists actually drove their truck into one of those poles here in Ol` Blighty, then if they survived they would be able to sue the makers because driving into it and getting injured would be an infringement on their human rights.

And I`m not kidding.

thats a tremondous amount of force, and in a normal application, they would probabally share the impact with another "death pole" or other stationary barricade. much better than tire spikes.

"why do they say its a sucses, if there was someone in the truck they wouden`t think it was a sucses"

Because its supposed to stop terrorists and the like from bombim important buildings. The life of some terrorist who is going to blow himself up anyway doesnt mean much when it saves hundreds/thousands of innocent people.

That said if it was explosives in the back I think the force of them flying forward could have detonated them, depending on hwat was used of course.
