Am I dense? I don’t see what’s wrong with the first one other than that the driveway is super-steep. Would it be impossible to drive up?

Try to imagine a car going up. First the front wheels…then the car at a 45 degree angle with an ocean of space underneath, the car struggling just to get the back wheels to make contact with the incline…while the front bumper scrapes against the concrete…

These are just too funny.

I wonder how many of these happened because someone tried to tell their boss, owner or developer it won’t work and they wouldn’t listen. So they just said OK I’ll show him.

These are hilarious; I’d love to hear the backstory about how each of these situations occurred.

I don’t see too much of a problem with #6 because the absence of a porch could have really disrupted the symmetry of the building. Reply

They are so funny, what a waste of time and materials.

also have you ever tried getting in or out of a car on angle – try holding that door open and watch out for the digits when it slams!

I know, that’s some crazy, messed up stuff, Zach!
