And Then There Was One
After a little investigative digging into how workers are going to get the three cranes off the top of Tokyo's new Sky Tree tower, we unearthed this video. Since the video doesn't reveal the whole picture, We'll break it down for you. The plan is to use crane number two to dismantle and lower crane number three. Then they will employ crane number one to do the same to crane number two. Then they will....still have crane number one still sitting up there like a cat stuck in a tree (the biggest tree in the world - the Sky Tree). What are they going to do now? Call the fire department?
We can't fathom how this could have happened. There is a web site today that claims job applicants in Japan are asked to solve the classic river crossing puzzle as part of the employment screening process, so we're confident they are going to figure out this puzzler too.
