    @Siyanor
    she could move, she got out because she heard the cans (how did you think beer cans were gonna stop the car?)

    but what doesn`t make sense is her brake lights come on before the cans move, she was going to stop for no reason and then just happened to hear the cans? no, staged.

    @Siyanor: She could move the car, it`s just that she thought something was wrong with it, since the cans make noise.

    @Siyanor, she could move it. She started driving off and stopped to check out the sound coming from the back (caused by the beer cans).

    But I call BS. How convenient was it that there just happened to be a camera in that exact spot in the parking lot? It was a setup.

    @I-IS-BORED

    Don`t drive, do you? You put the brakes on when you put it in drive, so your car doesn`t, you know, shoot forward uncontrollably and also drat up your gears.

    Stop assuming everything on the internet is fake so you can show how smart you are when you try to prove it.

    Also, I`d completely ignore the sound unless I kept hearing it for a long time. She heard a sound ONCE and got out of her car? Who would ever do that?

    i) It wasn`t tied to the axle.
    ii) Why on earth would a piece of string stop something as powerful as a large herd of horses?


    Also, I`d completely ignore the sound unless I kept hearing it for a long time. She heard a sound ONCE and got out of her car? Who would ever do that?

    Me. Would you really rather drive around for a long time with something either stuck to or falling off your car because you couldn`t be bothered to see what it was *in a car park when you had just started moving*? Seriously? Do bits fall off your car and drag on the ground so often that you don`t notice any more?

    "Don`t drive, do you? You put the brakes on when you put it in drive, so your car doesn`t, you know, shoot forward uncontrollably and also drat up your gears."
    she started her car, we get brake lights, she shifts gears, lights go off, then before the car manages to roll forward enough to pull the cans her lights come back on again. please read ALL of what i say, i said her lights came back on before the cans even moved, while the car was rolling just a tiny bit

    it`s either staged or she has reflexes that penetrate time and the person who bought this surveillance camera REALLY cares about that one parking spot

    I do agree with I-Is-Bored. But it can be explained by saying that she stopped to look to see if a car was coming the way she couldn`t see (in this case probably the right). However I find it convenient that he tied the cans on, and only had to wait 12 minutes before she came for her car. Either he`s really lucky, was stalking her, knowing her schedule, or this is a hoax. I`m going to say the latter.

    You guys are joking right? You cant actually thing this is real. How could you hear the sound of cans dragging on the ground behind your car. Not only did she hear it but she stopped before the cans moved a few feet.
    Also aren`t you wondering how the cans are zoomed in on and look crystal clear? I guarantee you David Caruso was not sitting behind the computer saying "enhance... enhance... There! Thats a finger print on the coke can", "Looks like someone is about to get canned"

    "ii) Why on earth would a piece of string stop something as powerful as a large herd of horses?"

    According to what I know about physics, which isn`t much, either 1) the axle will stop moving or 2) the string will break. If neither is true, please explain why.

    Also, I did type "unless I kept hearing it for a long time." Did you miss that? She was driving for half a second. Half a second is not a long time. My immediate reaction would not be "OH NO PARTS ARE FALLING OFF MY CAR!!" It would be "someone threw a can on the ground."

    "i) It wasn`t tied to the axle."

    Then what the hell was it tied to?

    The rear bumper is the most likely things. Possibly some other part of the bodywork.

    Why the hell would he tie it to the axle when there are far easier things to tie it to.

    "ii) Why on earth would a piece of string stop something as powerful as a large herd of horses?"

    According to what I know about physics, which isn`t much, either 1) the axle will stop moving or 2) the string will break. If neither is true, please explain why.

    Quite apart from the extreme unlikelihood of it being on the axle in the first place, give a little thought to the forces and materials involved.

    The friction between a few cans and the road wouldn`t be enough to stop a small rat, let alone a car.

    A mass of ~1500Kg and a 0-60 time of ~9s are reasonable figures for an average car. That requires ~4600N of force. That will b

    Cut off before 1000 as usual...

    ...break a high quality steel cable 1cm thick.

    It`s much harder to break a high quality steel cable 1cm thick than it is to break a piece of string.

    Look at it another way...even an economy-orientated car is 100 times as powerful as a strong working horse. If you got 100 strong workhorses, put some sort of harnesses on them and attached all the harnesses to a single piece of string, do you think the string could hold back those 100 workhorses if they wanted to be off?

    I don`t see how it`s easier to tie a string to the rear bumper than it is to tie it to an axle. Because of the shape of the bumper, it would take a much longer length of string, and it could easily slip off.

    A small rat doesn`t need to rotate inside a small space... I`m pretty sure an axle does. If that space is blocked, it can`t rotate very far. It doesn`t have anything to do with force, it has to do with volume.

    Actually, Siyanor, I have to thank you. I`ve been wanting to use that one for quite a while.

    You know absolutely f*ck all about vehicles don`t you? I know more and I`ve never actually gone under one myself.

    For one thing, you`d actually have to get more-or-less UNDERNEATH the car to get to the axle. For another, there are pieces that hold the bumper in place, among others parts, that you could tie it too. And before you cay ANYTHING, YES, those pieces include the ones attached to the bumper itself, and as such can be referred to as part of the bumper itself. I know how you love your semantic arguments.

    It doesn`t have anything to do with force, it has to do with volume.


    I`d also like to know just what the hell kind of science class you`re taking where the concept of cans or a string stopping a spinning axle has to do with VOLUME, as opposed to FRICTION, which is a FORCE.

    Even if the cans WERE to end up jammed in the axle, it wouldn`t provide enough friction to stop the axle. The spinning piece of heavy metal would just warp the thin aluminum to fit, then grind it down to a hot, very smooth piece of aluminum.

    And, just building on the point that it wasn`t tied to the axle, you also have very poor depth perception. The guy didn`t even reach under to his ELBOWS, let alone up the where the wheels are (which, by the way, would be where the axle would be).

    Seriously, dude, just quit while you`re behind. You`re already running in the Special Olympics, don`t come

    You just won the stupidity award. Congratulations.

    I may not know anything about cars, but at least I can read English.

    BTW, you`d have to have 20/20 vision to be able to see EXACTLY where that guy`s hands were in the video.

    You quite clearly don`t, since you mentioned cans being jammed in the axle, which quite clearly never happened.

    Okay, Mr. English Major, please explain to me how ELSE you can explain a can in such a tight space that it could stop the axle?

    This is your typical argument, Siyanor, and not only does it NEVER WORK, but it just makes you look THAT MUCH MORE RETARDED. "Oh, he actually refuted my point! Well, that`s alright, because it means something totally different from what I actually said..."

    No, you just have to do a little estimation on how long his arms are, how far he reached his arms under (you can still see him resting on his left elbow, so he couldn`t have reached in more than one arm`s length), and see where the tire bulges out a little as compared to how far out the rear bumper protrudes.

    I got cut off when I tried to say this last time, but... Quit while your behind, dude. Seriously, you`re already running in the Special Olympics, at the very least cross the starting line.



    Game over, man, game over. You lost. Just STFU and accept it.

    Unless you`re trolling, in which case, please continue. Troll bait`s actually pretty tasty when I`m bored...
