The most satisfying video in the world

Just wait until OSHA sees this!

Next up: followup post with the X-ray image after he’s a little too slow unloading that can crusher.



What? The very first can in the preview falling off all wrong was deeply unsatisfying. Sorry.


I could watch @noahdjango’s tear gas hackey shot until somewhere near the point of heat-death of the universe.


There are two types of people in the world: those who are satisfied by a 5-minute mashup of machinery, and They Who Have Seen the 1-Hour Bob Ross Instructional Video.


I forgot to note that all of those .gifs were saved over the years from right here on BB. the one in question is only a couple days old.

That’s how a rat king is formed, right?


Just watching the video, and right at the end, BAM, Excitebike. Haven’t thought about that in years.
Also, it was missing rainbow bagels.


Needs more marbles! I could watch marbles all damn day.

There is a recurring taffy-pulling scene in Tati’s Mr. Hulot’s Holiday you might enjoy. (Likewise, there is a tubing-extrusion scene in Mon Oncle that could have fit in here. In fact, pretty much any Tati movie, up until the last manic 15 minutes, are relaxing in the sense of this video.)
