    I saw the same video but longer, a few years ago. In the description it was said it happened somewhere in Russia and the truck burned/blew up for something like 45 minutes or so. I believe it was titled "Highway To Hell", but that only shows up now as an AC/DC song.

    Hitting a stopped tractor trailer on a highway, while speeding your welding supplies truck is a minor aacachievement. His sister lit a candle which turned out to be a stick of dynamite from a road runner cartoon

    15 + years working for myself, and by golly, I still don't know what I want to do when I grow up.

    It was posted here on Welding web with a ton of comments a few years ago Bist. Probably where you saw it last time.

    I watched a firefighter walk into an active propane tank fire and turn off the valve before the pumper crew got any water on it to keep it cool.

    I watched 35 UNION Firepersons stand around the lawn of my buddy's house and watch it burn while the $750,000 truck sprayed water supplied by a 5" hose on the roof with a remote controlled Monitor while the Firepersons assembled their lunch order.
    They didn't try saving the house or shop because Don is a Blacksmith/Weldor and had welding tanks that their laptop said might explode. Besides, the Company initially dispatched arrived late due to staffing, and the second company dispatched 3 minutes later was already arriving. AND, my favorite "That's why people buy Fire Insurance."
    Minimally 10 Million bucks of firetrucks were parked on the driveway and road when I got there, and 20 Vol Firemen were standing by at the road.

    First year UNION Fireperson around here makes $65,000 a year for riding the big truck and visiting the grocery store with the BIG TRUCK to pick up grocerys for their next meal.

    I own extinguishers for a reason. I also have Fire Insurance cause I don't depend on UNION Firepersons arriving promptly to camp on my lawn. I also remember when Vol Firemen knew how to knock a fire down with the water on the pumper, and got to the fire fast enough to do it.

    I believe you are probably right.

    VIRGIL, you sound like you have about as much use for unions as I do. There was a time when they were necessary but not so much any more.
