    i think i found everything that was gong wrong in the video:

    cables too short
    palms too big
    truck aint built to stand a crash (like those huge fords disel with all that horse pwr)
    if the palm did happen to not fall on the truck (unlikely) it would fall on the house or over the fence and on their neighbors house
    truck could easly snap pn the cable and crash into tree (tree would still stand)
    there is a friggin fence in front of the god dam truck
    only one man did all the work (i bet he didnt get paid)

There are times when I`ve done something so dumb I feel like I`m a complete idiot...THEN I see a video with a bunch of beetle-browed indo-european morons doing something that ranks a 11/10 on the moron index. It`s hilarious!The schadenfreude kicks in and I start to feel really good about myself. I almost believe could be a genius compared to those half-portions. Keep it up knuckleheads!
