I keep trying to think of a plausible scenario in which the container rises up in wrath and wreaks terrible vengeance on its tormentors, and keep failing. Most distressing. I hope at least that the teams of engineers that come inspect it pet and praise it too.

So like 80% of this was banging on the sides like it was a drum where all the kinetic energy can be dispersed as sound, heat and a fairly elastic collision that difuses the energy slowly to the frame of the skip, which because it's empty, can just bounce away. Dropping a wrecked car with no motor in it is almost pointless as it is almost entirely deformable on impact, absorbing most of the energy.

Rolling it off a hill? Really?

You wanna wreck a skip, fill it half full of scrap and then accidentally back a truck into one of its corners. You'll have kind of a hard time loading it up after that.

Historians generally agree that Hardox was one of the most ineffective Roman emperors.

I was really bothered when this didn't turn into gay porn. YMMV.

On some level, it very definitely was. Dudes lined up with their jackhammers all going at once... but Hardox can take it! Unf!

He certainly didn't stand up next to his brother Biggus.

Sure it's hard, but it doesn't really function as an ox.
