Alright, so this thread is not about weight lifting or actual sporting events, but rather random acts or events that you've witnessed, which displayed impressive strength by an individual. I witnessed such an event this morning and wanted to see what other interesting or amusing stories are out there: So I'm in the process of upgrading my home's heating system, which currently uses oil, and radiators heated by hot water. The entire system is being ripped out and replaced. Yesterday this included removing the radiators, pipes, boiler, etc. So going into this we knew that this ancient boiler in my basement was going to be the biggest pain to deal with. It ends up taking 4 grown men (all of which should be considered strong/athletic individuals) just to move the boiler from where it sits and onto a dolly (that supposedly has a 1,000lb capacity). Needless to say the dolly collapses as soon as the boiler is on it. So we move to plan B which is deconstructing this thing as much as possible to reduce the weight. We get it to a point where the 4 of us are able to muscle this thing to the steps of my exterior entrance, up the steps, and out to the edge of my driveway. Saying that this was a difficult task would be a huge understatement. This old boiler is a frickin monster (very awkward, and we're thinking in the neighborhood of 500lbs in the state that it was in). So at this point the truck we're using is completely full of scrap, so my plan is to deal with the boiler next weekend, unless someone stops and takes it before then (my neighborhood is full of scavengers that take almost anything). So this morning at about 730am my doorbell rings, and a dude I've never met is on my porch asking me what I'm doing with the boiler. I say, if you can move it you can have it. He says he'll be back. But before leaving, he makes a little sign and puts it on the boiler. It reads: scrappers- do not touch this boiler. It's already spoken for. LOL. Clearly this is an experienced scavenger I'm dealing with here. I laughed at the choice of words - already spoken for - as if he were procuring a mate, and not some old piece of metal, haha. So about 2 hours later this dude rolls up in a pickup truck, by himself. I'm of course watching from the comfort of my home (there's no way I'm touching this boiler again). And it's apparent that this guy intends on somehow getting it onto this pickup truck on his own. He gave a valiant effort, and was able to move it 4 or 5 feet, from my driveway to the back of his truck. Dude tries lifting it, I'm like no way, and he can't quite get it on the truck. Pretty nuts that he was even close. He calls for backup, and scavenger #2 arrives and they heave this beast onto the truck. I thought it was going to break the door of the truck's bed when it was lifted onto it. It was quite the scene. Must be "scrapper strength", LOL. It was as though just the sight of a free boiler produced such an adrenaline rush that near super human strength was achieved for a brief period, haha. Dude wanted that boiler. So, that's my amusing story for the day. What do you got??
