SCARY PICTURE OF THE THE DAY.
Yes, that really is an excavator on the roof of a 12-storey building in Shanxi (山西) province of northern China.
Shanxi province is the Illinois of China, just as Guangzhou (formerly Canton) is the Texas of China.
Of course, the bulldozer thing you see here is no insinuation on Illinois or any other American state.
People were just saying:—
“We hope he doesn’t reverse…”
“Going to lunch must suck.”
“How did it get up there?”
“Seriously, how and why?”
“The residents living nearby are all perplexed (and concerned).
Looks like someone is going to be the first recipient
of The Darwin Awards 2012.”
“A creative experiment on which way is more efficient to break down
a building, from the root or from the roof.”
“Simple. An alien spacecraft crashed there. They need to
lift it out with something. It’s the only possible explanation.”
“Chinese people always doing things that you can’t figure out.”
“How did they even get that stupid digger up there in the first place? I am confused!”
“This is what they need for the building next to you instead of
the jackhammers … would get the job done quicker!”
“How could it get up there? Next question what’s not possible in China?”
“Reminiscent of the Bishi Bashi Special game!”
“Illogical Premise Chinese-Style: Demolishing the very foundation you are standing on.”
