For me, it would be worth it.

(I think I've seen more baseball in gifs in this thread than I've watched in 5 years. OK not true I recently went to a game my brother and BIL played in a local adult league, that took like 4 eternities so probably was longer)

Amazing, but believable. A few fortuitous (but certainly painful) bumps to slow the way down, and then landing in the water. Hopefully not on the bike.

It would have been easier for the driver to get out and throw the trash into the truck instead of use the arm.

And since it was obviously caught on camera, the trash company owes them a new bin.
Must have been a new driver in training.
