Steamroller blues

One thing the Austin Powers steamroller sequence does not show you: Steamrollers make the ground vibrate.

A lot.

They’re repaving Chicago Avenue, the street directly outside my bedroom window, and they finally put the last bit of pavement down today, so they brought the steamroller out.

Except it vibrated my building so hard that it knocked shit over and woke me up from my doped-up bliss at 9am when I had been planning to sleep until, oh, 2pm.

So I got to get up and try and figure out what the fuck was going on for 20 minutes before I finally saw the steamroller. Yarrgh.
