    Brit gets, rejects amazing license plate:
    Somehow though, one dodgy licence plate slipped through the net. A customer was unhappy to order a new van only to find its registration started with the letters and numbers BJ69. He had been due to pick up the vehicle from van leasing firm Vanarama, but deemed it ‘too rude’.

    I'm just really loving that there's a van leasing firm called Vanarama.
    I mean, the rest of the story is nice and all.
    But, "Vanarama"? Knowing that's a thing is making my Monday morning slightly more tolerable.

    Umbrellas aren't tough, easiest route would probably be just to pry the door open until breaks the umbrella, or pop the door out of the frame if it's doable from that side. Could also loop some wire in there to move the end of the umbrella. Peel the caulk off the window and take out the window, then re-caulk it. Break the window. Go in from an outside window.

    Loads of options here for anybody that actually wants to get in there.

    If you read the comments, there's apparently nothing of importance or value inside and everybody just works from a laptop anyways. That's why nobody has even bothered to break the glass, there's just no reason to.

    So really, it's less "Look at how stupid these people are" and more "We have all the time in the world and can afford to play this ridiculous puzzle game without having to take the easy (and messy) way out".

    I suspect there's a small gap between the door and the fixed glass panel, just because I can't imagine any office investing in an actual tight fitting sliding door for an internal cube separation.
    If that's the case, a wire coat hanger, bent straight with a hook on the end would be about the easiest way I could think of.

    I'm not a truck guy, but it looks like he only has one rear axle engaged so all of the power is being pushed through just two tires, with the extra added weight from the truck pushing back from being on an incline. He probably doesn't realize you have to actually turn on all-wheel or 6-wheel drive for the vehicle (some vehicles have an automatic setting, some it's manual, and some it can be both), so he doesn't realize he's slipping on two tires instead of moving on six.

    That truck is a custom 6 wheeler. It wasn’t properly set up to use all wheels from what I understand.

    And 6 wheels looks dumb.

    I really doubt the guy that bought that truck even remotely understands (or cares) that there is a specific point to having six wheels (pulling a heavy payload without blowing out your tires), not that more tires=more better moving.

    I'd be willing to bet that's someone's work truck, and it's someone other than the usual driver behind the wheel who has no idea what they're doing.

    Wait, how would you get around it?

    Sliding entrance/exit doors are generally required to come off their track if pushed inward or outward. In some places they're even required to convert to a swinging door in this case rather than just coming off the track. Generally a fire code thing to prevent them from becoming a wall if the power's out or everyone's pushing to get out, but it's also a good safety feature for an automatic door, because temporarily disabling the door is better than every out of control shopping cart or Amigo just going through the glass.

    Only supplying power to the rear axle is the main fail. Poor engineering is the other. The truck is too small to need a 3rd axle, so when the truck crests that small rise, there's not enough weight over the back end to keep the 4 rear tires on the ground. It is basically high-centering itself on it's un-powered front and middle axles, which reduces the weight on the powered rear axle causing the tires to spin.

    Just remember that half the people you meet are below average intelligence.

    He is driving in 2 wheel drive mode (the front back tires are not engaged to drive). He has nothing in the bed and when he attempts to go over the hump in the incline (its slight) the front rear tires lift the rear rear tires slightly off the ground, causing them to lose traction and spin. He is effectively high centering his truck on his own wheels

    Gone right: We finally have a news story worthy of this thread out of Australia that doesn't involve deadly flora or fauna.

    Bad news: That's because it involves the headline "massive semen explosion":
    A huge fire at a cattle breeding facility in Australia has caused thousands of dollars in damage after at least 100 cylinders containing bull semen were destroyed.

    Emergency services were called to the blaze in the early hours at Yarram Herd Services in Gippsland, Victoria.
    A spokesman from the Country Fire Authority told Daily Mail Australia that the fire had "completely shredded the building."

    Country Fire Authority Gippsland commander Chris Loeschenkohl said the crew had to be wary of "projectiles" coming at them while they tackled the blaze.

    "The liquid inside the cylinders was rapidly expanding and essentially the lids of the cryogenic cylinders were just popping off the top and projectiles were being thrown from the building," he told ABC.
