View Full Version : Now that's what I call a barrier!
A new DoD Vehicle barrier. They drive a full speed 32 ton truck into it, and it stops it cold, the wall doesn't even crack.
Need Help coming up with arguments against mine?

My question is: Who'd they get to drive the truck?

The cab of the truck flew over the short wall. Mmm shrapnel.

Probably remote controlled with one of those illegally resold UCLA cadavers.
Personally, I would've driven around the big white Jersey barrier, but that's just me.

To gain that which is worth having, it may be necessary to lose everything else.

I'm not talking so much about the height of the wall, Its just that it looks insanely strong. Double/triple the height, and you have some good barrier shields to prevent truck bombs, etc. etc.

Raising the height would probably lower the strength, that's why its so strong, cause its short. What looks like 2 foot diameter pipe, no telling how deep in the ground, filled with concrete, plus the wall. Which I'm sure it has a buried section too, probably at least 5 feet, its probably about 8-10 feet tall total even though the above group portion is only about 4 feet.
That would be my guest as to how they build a wall that strong though. Hara

This thread shoulda been about a really really really big condom.

The more I watch this video, the more it looks like they just rolled the damned thing out in the middle of a street and then hid behind a bush with a camera, a bag of cheetos, and a handle of rum.

its probally designed about the same way as those highway dividers that are replacing the grass medians, i mean remember when that guy stole a tank it was stopped by a highway divider.

That happened because he was a stupid ass and didn't know how to drive.
You can't drive a track vehicle over a high object at an angle, if he had stopped, and tried to drive straight over it, he would have been fine. Hara
