    I don`t know about anyone else but I feel a little more information about WTF just happened is in order.

    used to know a mechanic at UPS who`s face was normal looking on the left side but the right was offset to the side a few more inches than it should have been.
    seems he wasn`t paying attention whilst inflating a truck tire and it blew up. knocked him back about fifty feet and tore his face in half.

    I can see the white thing is his hat. What`s the black thing, his head?

    Fake. If there was enough pressure released to launch him that hard, that fast, there would`ve at least been enough equal/opposite to knock over the rig/tire.

    So... not one of you has noticed that his head came off and BOUNCED. Its a dummy, put there to show the damage the tire does, or rather doesn`t do in the cage.

    I`m guessing it`s an inflatable body with a mannequin head on it.

    Truck tires are terribly dangerous. I worked with a guy who was changing school bus tires and he had his hand in the cage when the tire unseated from the bead. Smashed the holy **** out of his arm. He just said "oh my God, oh my God" and then just blacked out and had some kind of seizure. My head was just like wet cotton. It was so loud. Doctors saved the arm, but I don`t know what ever happened to him. I`ll never forget the arm. His hand looked like alligator skin and it just kept rolling up and back like a party favor. I almost puked.

    I`ve been afraid of inflating tires ever since I had a mountain bike tire explode. What a bang. I try to keep as much distance and metal between me and any tire I inflate these days and I inflate car, truck and tractor tires.

    not real but this did happen to my friends dad. Smashed his entire left side of his face and broke almost every bone. He lived but never looked or spoke the same.

    People, it is a dummy, much like a crash test dummy used when they crash test cars.

    Like I said in the subtitle, they are testing the inflation cage to see if will protect a human when the over inflated tire explodes. The test involves the use of a dummy. A crash test dummy of sorts.

    Just a little while ago on LiveLeak someone called it "FAKE!" I said "Hmm...not sure if trolling or just stupid" He called me a hipster poobag and immediately blocked me! HAHAHA!
