This will make you feel good about the safety laws we have in place in Australia.

Operating a crane should require some level of common sense, correct? Apparently these guys didn't get that memo, because there's not much common sense being displayed here.

Cranes rely pretty heavily on a good centre of balance and the right angle for lifting, but that all goes out the window when you try and lift a truck of about the same weight as the crane you're in.

Lastly, it should be noted that the last clip in this compilation is pretty unnerving if you've ever worried about your car being crushed by a falling object-or-surfacing-roller.
