      My guess? He just swung it up there, it's exceptionally lightweight for its size and the dude is stronger than bear's breath after the salmon have gone upriver.

      If the driver projected a crosswalk then hit him, it would be on the driver, as he communicated that it was safe to walk. Now, if a different car coming the other way hit him all bets are off.

      He is holding it against his right hip. Note his elbo is at a right angle when is comes into view. Wide angle lens trickery.

      Also, that dude seems like a big mofo when compared to the other crew member.

      No doubt. And that may have been the most calculating they did on that stunt. Pretty sure the meeting consisted of the following:



      Driver: Lets put some small winglets on my racecar just so it looks like we thought about this for more than 5 seconds.
      Crew: That sounds awesome. How big of a ramp do you want?
      Driver: Big
      Crew: Alright, lets do this.
      Sciencey guy: Um, you realize that is high up. We should stick a parachute on it. Or maybe 2. How much does it weigh? Ehh, no matter, 2 should work well enough. And lets not worry about them tangling up at all. Just stick 2 parachutes on the roof.
      Driver: If you think that's necessary I guess we can.


      Yeah, that landing did not look soft. I mean everything I learned about dropping a bowling ball and a golf ball from same height says they will fall at same speed without anything to add drag. A parachute should add more drag that a piece of sheet metal falling by itself. And I think the car fell faster than that sheetmetal. That is not a good thing.

      This should result in an immediate pistol whipping.

      edit: and the truck should be impounded and crushed.

      How do you not see the patrol car on the other side of the intersection?

      Also, I really wish he would have flipped the bird since he already had his arm hanging out the window. I mean if you are already going down, go down with style.
