Using an Excavator to Stack LEGO Blocks

Finland-based excavator operator Juha-Pekka Perämäki uses a Hitachi medium excavator to stack and play with LEGO blocks in a remarkable feat of precision captured in this video. Perhaps not surprisingly, when Perämäki is not working as a machine operator, he’s using his reflexes to race rally cars. For more feats of precision excavator operation, see his colleague Petri Perämäki build a tower of nuts (the fastener, not the food) with the same machine.

Man in a Wheelchair Races a London Tube Train to the Next Stop

A man named Anthony recently recreated athlete Noel Carroll’s impressive feat by racing the London Underground from one stop to the next in a wheelchair — exiting the train at the Mansion House stop and trying to meet it at the next station on the Circle Line, Cannon Street. Anthony is unfortunately stopped short thanks to a distinct lack of wheelchair access in the station. The attempt was put together and filmed by The Free Help Guy in an attempt to call attention to the fact that only 25% of London Underground stations are accessible by wheelchair.

The original race by Noel Caroll for the sake of comparison:
