Donald Trump Jr. compared refugees to poisoned skittles. Kevin O’Leary said poor people can’t be in love. Robots are climbing fences and opening doors. Rolling Stone named The Simpsons the sixth-best TV show of all time. Oculus Rift founder and “near-billionaire” Palmer Luckey has been secretly funding racist, white nationalist, pro-Trump “meme magic.” The Blue Jays are shitting the bed. We have, like, ten years left to solve climate change. And Kevin James is back on network television.
Holy hell. I just want to curl up in bed and watch The Office episode where Michael finally starts dating Holly over and over and over again.
It’s hard to make sense of epic shitstorm that was this last week. But here, I think, in this Russian video of a truck loading steel pipes onto an unmoored barge, I have found the perfect way to sum it all up.
So much of this video, like this week itself, begs the question “why?”
Why is this happening? Why is there no bridge here? Why didn’t the driver try to drive off the barge when things started going sideways? Did he make it out alive? I mean, the truck literally disappears into the river. Why was the barge unmoored in the first place? And who is this dude in front just chilling?
On the bright side, at least New Girl is back.
