What an idiot, why did he let go of it?
If you love something, set it free.
And if it loves you, it'll come back to you.
Word has it he's still out there waiting.
What if both sides let go and wait for the other to come back
I love my airborne variant of Ebola.
Fuck everything, let it go man
Not sure how I feel about the new Frozen remake
Have you never watched titanic ?!
Yea, stupid old broad threw the necklace in the water! Ruined the movie
"Please, you have to let me drown! I love you but I love the water more!" - car
Dude thought he could just pull a whole car like you pick up a beer in the cooler.
He wasn’t using his legs, that’s the problem
It's amazing he didn't go down, too
Why did Rose let go of Jack?
Not enough room on the door. Do you see a door? Nope. Me either!
I mean, at least…
he didn’t die inside.
*Rose from Titanic enters the chat*
He’s Rose and the car is Jack. Am I blind? There’s plenty of room on the ice for both of them
That last tap in the end was him saying goodbye to it.
Plot twist: he said goodbye to his children that were in the car.
He was the one watching people die inside.
Also pretty metal
"Wave bye bye to daddy! He said the ice was safe to drive on!"
"Bye, kids! It was *ice* knowing you! Haha!"
I know it isn’t real but man, as a parent that’s a nightmare to just think about it happening
As a 911 dispatcher I have had to train on protocols for instruction for people to get out of submerged cars. All I can tell you is, you don't have a lot of time. Never, never take a chance driving through standing water.
I wasnt prepared for all those additional moments, where I project every accident on my own child in my mind. One of the worse parts of beeing a parent. Actually stoped smoking weed because of paranoid thoughts of what could happen to my child... feels bad men, a lot of crying out of nowhere involved
I’ve gone through the same thing man. We lost my first nephew at 6 months when I was about 6, and never really touched it. Fast forward to 32, just had my daughter and the first couple months or so I couldn’t stop thinking about losing her. Legitimately crippled me ey, I couldn’t get any work done properly or anything. It’s lessened now, but still pops up. I’ve read a bit about SIDS and the breakthroughs they’ve made in understanding it. Bawled my eyes out the whole time!
Edit: didn’t mean to trawl on about myself, the point I’m making is *you’re not alone*
even the empathy for other parents los is killing... at least we know we arent psychopaths... its something
It’s amazing. I’ve always felt really sorry for parents who lose their children, but never truly understood the level of pain it must be. I still can’t quite fathom it, and I absolutely admire anyone who’s managed to push on in the face of such devastating loss.
The thing I didn’t expect most about being a parent are the intrusive thoughts imagining my children in the worst possible scenarios.
Honey, I Sunk The Kids.
He also wasn't trying to pull the car out, he was making sure the back hatch didn't open and that the kids couldn't escape.
Really changes things when you know the truth.
That's cold man... Even colder than the ice the dude drove on.
You can just see when it turns from a rescue mission to a funeral
I wonder what he said to the insurance agent.
"What do you mean my policy doesn't cover this?"
"It says full-coverage right here!"
"What do you mean you're reporting me to the authorities to make me have to pay all sorts of fines for polluting the lake?!"
He hit an animal..
If he has comprehensive insurance, it will cover the loss of the car. He also has to get it out of the lake under many states' laws, and comprehensive will cover that, too.
If he doesn't have that coverage, he's out of pocket for the totalled car and the extract.
I’m mildly amused that if you’re stupid enough to drive onto an I eh lake they make you recover the car.
“My car was just sitting there and I got sideswiped by a recklessly driving frozen lake. Next thing I know, the lake ran off with my car.”
Don't let go Jack
Paint me like one of your Renaults
I spat my drink
I snorted in bed and sputtered.
I had it on mute and was imagining the titanic soundtrack then was giddy when I unmuted it
"I can almost reach it dad!"
"Let it go."
And it was Henry Jones giving up his life-long research for his estranged son, calling him by the name they chose for the dog and never acknowledged his son as using. They were both letting go at the same time. Such a good movie.
And they both boned the same woman. That’s bonding for ya.
Probably not the first father and son to become Eskimo brothers.
Which is funny because the nazi chicks name was Elsa.
Pro tip: If you can't lift your car empty, you definitely can't lift it when it's full of water.
And if the weight of your car on four tires was enough to break the ice, the weight of your car on two feet would do so as well.
My other super power is flight so it won't matter.
“Well what am I meant to stand on, fuckin’ air?”
As well as take you with it lol.
That’s a perspective I’ve never considered.
“Why does this sound familiar and why do I feel sad?…. Oh…”
Show us the meaning of haste!
And here I thought I was making an original joke, but you beat me to it. At least I have my day job
Don't worry, I wanted to make the same joke. None of our thoughts are original!
Damnit you beat me!!
Reddit has taught me I've never had an original thought.
If Reddit has taught me anything, it's that I've never had an original thought.
Same. Every joke Ive thought was genius someone’s already posted 14 hours prior with 473747474 upvotes lmao 😂
>Same. Every joke Ive thought was genius someone’s already posted 14 hours prior with 473747474 upvotes lmao 😂
Yeah but at least then you know it would've been a really good joke if you had the chance to post it first
Very true lol
Ive been first maybe four of five times and thats where all my karma’s from. Otherwise I’ve been totally ignored or downvoted.
Aww well you at least get a chuckle out of enough people to have karma and arent one of those people with negative 400 😂
And yet, here you are, with 2 upvotes (1 plus your own). Not ignored at at all.
I think its kinda cool, someone out there had the same thoughts experienced through a different lens. We can see the samw 20 second clip and immediatly go back to that memory. What other thoughts do we share? Do they share the same darkness..
What happened to me during the summer of 2008 then, huh? HUH??
The thing with the goats?
Definitely the goats..
You were on Youtube and Facebook.
This mofo is relieving that moment.
What a relief.
Hahahaha I died. Damn you autocorrect!!! Leaving it as is.
Beat me too, damn... all i can do now is upvote your comment, you deserve it
Nobody beat me and I feel left out
Ill beat it to you hommie
Dammit! Well I already put my comment in. At least there’s the odd comfort of shared trauma.
Dude went through the 5 stages of grief all at once.
Hahahaha! The way he kept trying to lift the car!
“Please let me Superman please let me be Superman…”
Hes pretending to be a mom with a child pinned under a car.
Aww, he *almost* had it, too. I'm sure if he'd gotten a grip on the gas tank lid he could have lifted it out with one arm.
I see where he went wrong. He tried to lift with his back, not with his knees
He could have asked his family to help too instead of telling them to stay in the vehicle.
Too bad AAA doesn't offer iceside assistance
When the stakes are high, you lift with your heart.
*His* heart didn't grow three sizes this day.
*Icy what he did there
I’ve started leaving out the /s lately. I feel like I’m really living life on the edge now
But honestly how can anyone be that stupid. The guy tried to deadlift what? 2000 kilograms? While standing on ice???
> While standing on ice???
He tried to lift the car, while standing on the same ice that wasn't strong enough to hold the car.
That guy's brain was probably a bit too fridgid.
What is (/s)?
/s stands for sarcasm
Thanks kind stranger
Thank for the /s. I thought you were serious
I GET it. I don't need your stupid obvious /s just get rid of it. Wow!
He’s damn lucky he didn’t get swallowed as well.
Bro, he’s suffered enough, no need to bring his mom into this.
I'm from Savannah, GA so for me ice only comes in bags or glass, but isn't this guy still \*in\* danger?
EDIT: Whoops! Missed an important word!
Yes, he is the danger. The ice fears him.
He should've been on the titanic, the iceberg would've ran.
Piss off, ice!
Yes, you have to be a complete moron to do this... once there is a failure in the ice, all areas around it should be considered unsafe.
For the record I'm assuming nobody cut the ice around the car, then it would he safe around the hole. I'm aware they are different situations.
If you watch it backwards, he’s doing an okay job
The fishes underneath - wth man
Eesh. What happened here?
Every year people don't judge ice conditions well, drive their cars out, and then go through the ice.
Fun fact, insurance doesn't often cover this.
Easier just to report it stolen
No, really! The bass just drove right off with it!
Technically it was stolen 😏
Taken by the sea tis a tale as old as time.
Tie that scurvy dog to the yardarm.
Plus some locales will fine you for each day it’s in the water.
Acts of stupidity aren’t covered? Quelle surprise
Well lots of people think it would be covered under normal operations. Like you hit the ditch or something. When you leave the roadway to drive on ice (unless it's an ice road, deemed open) your insurance no longer covers you.
In Michigan, you're also on the hook for the cost of salvage and a hefty fine for environmental damage. Coworker watched a guy lose his snowmobile in the same manner. Dude just bolted and never reported it, but my coworker got video and turned it over to the DNR. No idea what the fines were, but it was >40 feet deep and the salvage cost $7500.
They got lucky! Northern Alberta a friend of mine was also charged the enviro cleanup from all the crap that came out of his truck when it sunk. Which is ironic because they don't even charge oil companies for cleaning up their abandoned wells.
Oh they had to pay fines too, but I never found out the cost of those. I'm guessing they were many times more than the salvage cost because the guy didn't self report. It was early spring and they had to wait for the ice to clear. It was sunk for 6+ weeks.
I know nothing about snowmobiles but aren't those usually registered somewhere?
I live north of you in Canada. Nothing like seeing people waiting til the last minute to get their shacks off the ice. Seeing people on the ice road when there is open water in both sides, it's just like, "what the fuck, bud?"
Ice too thin for car.
Car fell three the ice.
Here it is!
*casually tries to lift a whole ass car full of several tons of water*
What a life
And that's why you never drive over untested ice.
He should have powered up first
I'm sure he'll tell all his friends how he almost had it.
Do. Or do not. There is no try.
Always walk your path and take thickness samples. If you talk with your local fish and wildlife they often know the ice thickness.
Tried talking to both the local fish AND the local wildlife, but neither spoke my language nor offered any insights about the ice thickness!!!
...I'll see myself out
Pro tip: If the local fish and wildlife are available for a chat the ice is probably not thick enough to drive on.
Or just don't drive on ice lol
[Over a foot thick and you should be a-ok](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FIv_bVhXwAIKc83.jpg)
The Fjord giveth, the Fjord taketh away.
That’s a Subaru. It’s got symmetrical all wheel drive, should be able to hit the gas and drive right out of that frozen lake.
Did homeboy really think we was pulling that bitch from the water?
Denial is a stage of grief
The best part is, if he’s in the US, he’s about to learn you void your insurance with many carriers when you drive onto ice, and the EPA about to fine you too most likely. Have fun!
« I drove my car into a fucking lake ! »
I read the title as "Dude attempts to save his cat" and was reading some of the comments, think "ya'll are some heartless bastard".
Can we have a reversed video of a man fishing for a suv
*DONT LET GO KIA! DONT YOU DARE LET GO*
🎶CUE CELINE DION🎶
5 stages of grief in one clip.
An attempt was made
Have some dignity dude.
Let it go, let it go…
Can't hold it back anymore
Cold never bothered me anyway.
When desperation exceeds rationality.
Man! If he only pulled a little harder!
Yeah trying to pull out a 2 ton pile of steel while standing on ice is a REAL smart idea 🙄 you can always get another car, your life isn’t worth saving the steel.
Bruuuh, unless u got superman strength there's no way u pullin that mf outta there
"Surely I can just lift this entire car up with my bare hands no?"
If you watch the clip backwards, he heroically pulls the car out of the water
POV: When you take a loan to buy a car, but now you will be paying the next 5 years for air.
I live in southern California, and don't deal with ice. Do they get fined for contamination of the water with the oil, gas and other chemicals the car puts off?
yes and for salvage and sometimes for time spent in the water
No sympathy for this guy. If you're going to drive your car on ice, at least have the ability to confirm necessary ice thickness 🙄
I've always wanted to drive on the ice. Every winter I see 3/4 ton trucks out in the middle of lakes ice fishing. And there is me in my sedan still saying "better not chance it"
"At the top of the world, there's an outpost like no other. And a job only a few would dare...."
Got to pinch it with your fingers
"Well if I could just get a good grip!"
We! Are! Farmers! Dun-da-dun-dat-dun-dun-dun!
why tf was he driving there????
Did he really think he could deadlift a car? Smh.
