    I would simply place the cart first then build the corridor around it

    Now you're almost thinking like a Hollywood producer.

    Your final step is to use the wheel dolly and then put in the books that you built an entire corridor around the cart.

    Bought the entire building, built the cart inside the corridor, wrote the building off as a loss to the budget of this and 16 other movies that used it, then let Michael Bay blow it up with the cart still inside.

    Unfortunately we had a camera malfunction so we need to recover and rebuild the cart from the rubble, build another building around it, and get Michael Bay to blow it up again.

    I'm sure they had a smarter way to stage that scene but I think about how I'd do it and the idea of an Austin Powers crew member having to move that cart sideways down 200'+ of hallway using something like a pallet jack that only nominally moves in a straight line, just constantly hitting a wall in either side, occasionally knocking the cart sideways so it gets wedged on the walls and they have to call someone over to help them reset it on the jack, a producer getting upset because they only blocked out an hour for the shot and they've already burned 45 getting the cart in place

    I always assumed the entrance was where the camera is, so they'd only have to move the cart a couple of meters.

    Yeah, you can see a little concrete/steel pole in the foreground, which would normally be there to block carts so only pedestrians can go that way. A cart that size, they could've got like 8 people to just lift it straight up and over.

    I figure it was actually something like that, the posts might even be fake too. But I really enjoy the giggle I get out of thinking about a younger Carpy getting asked to move a cart sideways down a hallway and all the ways I would have mucked that up

    please don’t propose to people at the Menlo Park Mall food court

    There is.



    A Ben 10 fan who calls himself Matt10 or something like that tried to propose to someone in the Menlo Park Mall food court dressed in Ben 10 gear. The girl just walked away. It is peak cringe.

    CW: Most of the articles out there link to a Tweet (with the video) that drops the N-bomb on it, so be careful when searching for it.

    CRIME PROTIP: When giving the police a false alias, make sure the alias doesn't have active warrants:
    A Michigan man who was caught with methamphetamine gave police a fake name, but the person whose name he used had active felony warrants, so he was arrested anyway, according to officials.

    I made that mistake when I was a teen, too. Had to talk fast to get out of that one.

    Today in NOPE: Man returns to car after shopping, finds occupants - 15,000 bees:
    He had just finished grocery shopping, but a New Mexico man got much more than he bargained for when he returned to his car in the store’s parking lot: A swarm of 15,000 honey bees had taken over the back seat.

    The man, whose name was not released, had left a window down in a Buick while he made a 10-minute stop at an Albertsons supermarket on Sunday afternoon in Las Cruces, N.M., the authorities said.

    It wasn’t until he had started to drive away that he noticed that something was amiss, according to the Las Cruces Fire Department.

    “Then he turned back and looked and like was, ‘Holy Cow,’ ” Jesse Johnson, an off-duty firefighter and paramedic whose hobby is beekeeping, said of the man’s reaction in an interview on Wednesday. “He called 911 because he didn’t know what to do.”

    The bees were removed thanks to a firefighter/beekeeper, with only two stings.

    Much like free enemas, the line between "not enough" and "too many" lies between 1 and 15,000.

    And also like free enemas, hopefully you never have to investigate that line.
