Might not be load bearing but also could be a mcmansion where no one gave a shit

u/[deleted] Aug 18 '22 edited Aug 18 '22

I forget what this is called but there’s a cool concept in design and architecture and engineering that if something looks like it can bear your load, it needs to be able to.

65

u/Ginjaninjanick7 Aug 18 '22

If something looks load bearing maybe it should be for stability but for sure many members are non-load bearing in designs and engineering, there are other uses for 0-force members

Edit: Oh man. I didn’t mean it like that. I meant: if it looks like it can bear a load (like you leaning on it) then it needs to be able to.

You okay?

You replied to yourself with a slight variation of what you already said, left an 'edit' that says exactly what your first comment says, but also that 'edit' is part of this original response comment.

u/seanjuan666 Aug 18 '22

My folks had a little awning over their back door. Little wrought iron posts held it up. Same thing though. My dad was leaning on one after a surgery and it spun around, not quite falling all the way out. Be careful what you put your weight on.

He legit may have saved her life. I have had more than one relative fall from a small distance like that, hit their head and die.

u/pegothejerk Aug 18 '22

That seems like more than average, sorry for your losses

270

u/Viperbunny Aug 18 '22

Thanks. They weren't anyone I was close to. Sadly, people who are older and have balance issues are at risk.

u/pegothejerk Aug 18 '22

Ah yeah, I remember a girlfriend’s dad going that way, really sucked. I really should get back to a routine with yoga.

u/TexanGoblin Aug 18 '22

Yeah, her head was going right for the cement if he didn't stop her. Could have been very bad.

She seems really unwell on the ground, almost like she fainted or hit her head on the concrete.

u/fisht33th Aug 18 '22

Looks like maybe she landed on the weed wacker

435

u/NotEven-Punk Aug 18 '22

The post fell on the back of her head

106

u/[deleted] Aug 18 '22

Ah geez. I’m just really concerned that she looks like she has a concussion

123

u/Schw33 Aug 18 '22

Plus she basically went crown of the head first into that guys shoulder with all of her momentum. That’s a really bad way to get hit and it’s how a lot of football players get Spinal injuries. Hopefully she’s alright. Head injuries are really scary

14

u/[deleted] Aug 18 '22

That does it. Yeah then she’s okay

100

u/TopNo5993 Aug 18 '22

The pole drilled her on the back of the head

44

u/[deleted] Aug 18 '22

Someone else said the same thing, and I’ll give a similar response—I’m concerned that being hit in the back of head can mess with your brain, and she looks like she has a concussion.

But I’m really hoping that it’s just a temporary stun sort of thing, and not a real one.

Updooted, because it’s a good catch

15

u/Lufo_The_Alien Aug 18 '22

Might be the embarrassment

72

u/[deleted] Aug 18 '22

I dunno. After so many years teaching equestrian, (before I was a physics professor) I’ve learned to trust your gut about if someone (or an animal) doesn’t… look right. It’s better to check and be sure they aren’t injured.

But I can’t discount the high probability that you’re right and it’s nothing. I’d really prefer that case

32

u/Hadespuppy Aug 18 '22

Looks to me like she got hit on the back of the head/neck, then went right into the gardener and the weedwacker. That's three potential head injuries. Hopefully it's nothing, but it's definitely worthy of a trip to urgent care to get checked out.

-39

u/Danimal_House Aug 18 '22

Lmao I love when people like you make up shit based on the smallest amount of evidence. So confidently too. You have no idea if any of that is what actually happened.

43

u/[deleted] Aug 18 '22

Actually we do know she hit her head on the pole and the guy, and after years of diagnosing ailments through the way people and animals move, I’m allowed to put forth a disprovable hypothesis that she doesn’t look okay.

Furthermore, I just met with my neurologist about having to do PT for a concussion, so I kinda recognize the initial stun.

127

u/scratison Aug 18 '22

All in all it was a blessing he was there. She was really relying on that to hold her. Maybe he got clobbered pretty hard in the face.

u/tinywinki Aug 18 '22

Catch is a strong word. More broke her fall. Still cool.

You know from the title, I was kinda expecting him to catch her..

276

u/AlecGlen Aug 18 '22 Silver

She got beamed in the back of the head by the pole, collapsed and was on a course to faceplant the concrete followed by the pole dropping near her head again. It wasn't a perfect save, but with a <1s reaction time he took a pole to the face to prevent what could have been a pretty serious head injury.

26

u/Math1988 Aug 18 '22

Yeah, she just fell on him.

Not sure he caught her or just provided a softer place to land.

I think I would've breathed easier if he'd dropped whatever implement that is along the way, but good on him regardless.

u/AlecGlen Aug 18 '22

Possibly, but on the other hand it looks like the weed whacker may have coincidentally stopped her head from hitting concrete.
