Timber Bridge Inspection

Perhaps the single most boring video ever created. Utterly mesmerizing in its boredom. Boredom as art. Boring beyond belief.

What do you think? Any other contenders?

"If the bridge falls down the [day after your inspection], I hope your inspection report said it was bad." (~2:00)

That in itself makes it worth it, but from around 4:30 they start on equipment and it really starts to pick up:

"I carry two or three different types of tapes and lengths. It really helps to, ah, for...measuring your, deficiencies, in areas." (~5:40)

"...if you've got it drilled in 16 inches into a deep member..." (~8:00)

"...with a screw tip on it. You should have two different sizes, I'm speaking in length, one 18in. in length another 12in. in length. This'll enable you to get up into tight areas..." (~8:15)

"...but upon probing with the g-pick it comes apart quite easily. The wood is wet, which is a needed criteria..." (~14:45)

Plus a lot of fun terminology here and there, and that's only through the first bridge ^_^. Change the video and it'd be as if Ben Stein narrated a porn video.

And that's all without any alcohol (or maybe I shouldn't admit that...) I wish it were in HD, though :coolgrin:

JSWOLF19--you have earned a medal for viewing that whole video! Thanks for extracting the best parts!

Paul, I actually only watched half... Do I still get to keep the medal if I watch the other half? ^_^
