Machine holds an egg - level 3
A crane operator in China amazed his colleagues as he used the machinery to pick up an egg.
Yes, you heard right. Fang Chunlin operated the machinery normally used for moving long steels pipes to balance the 50-gram egg on the giant pipe grabber weighing about three tons.
The concentration on his face shows the dedication Fang has for the job. He said he practices grabbing pipes day and night.
Fang works at an oil field company in China, his day-to-day job being to transport pipes using the 24-ton crane. He said he believes the pipe cracking sounds like "a kind of music" which always makes him "full of happiness" and feel a "sense of accomplishment".
Difficult words: crane (big machine for moving heavy things), grabber (part which holds the pipes), dedication (he works really hard), accomplishment (when you achieve something hard successfully).
