Default Wanna see how fast I am?

Here's a video I just found of the project I've been on for the last couple years. The new subway tunnels and stations in downtown Pittsburgh.
Some of you may enjoy...
This is from last summer when the Tunnel Boring Machine broke through and completed the first of two tunnels. The Port Authority must have put this together. Its a bit slow at first, but at the 4:00 mark you can see a demonstration of my ninja speed....okay it is time lapse.
Im the guy in the manlift, cutting and removing steel.-----Gate

Most excellent Gate!

What the hell do you shoot for. By the look of your torch wielding I think you could cut up and cook a deer in just a few minutes with out even shooting it.

That thing would be dinner before it knew it was dead.

Very cool video. And dayummm, ur fast

Of course with true Ninja skills, you would not have needed the man-lift nor the torch. Just a few well placed Chuck Norris spinning back kicks would have sufficed

Seriously, cool video. And good job.

Glad you enjoyed it. I was a little hasty about posting
Here's a tv segment covering the tunnel boring if anyone is interested.
Laborers and Operating engineers worked round the clock in 12hr shifts, 7 days a week with the TBM to bore the tunnels.
My trade (Piledrivers) installed the soldier beams for the walls, ground anchors, whaler beams and pipe-strut bracing to support the 60ft deep excavations on either side of the tunnels. We then remove bracing as the new floor, walls and ceiling is built. Thats what I was removing pieces of in the first vid.
You can see some of the bracing in this clip and a small section of the excavated area (launch pit) in the aerial views.---Gate
