I wonder sometimes how they get loaded let alone how they traverse roads.

Didn't Albert Einstein have a formula that explained how those results are achieved?

My take on this is that 99% of those pictures were of none U.S. citizens who were probably very hard working people

just trying to do a job.

They mostly do appear to be Southeast Asian. The big question is: From where comes the tenacity to keep adding material after they've already achieved herculean results at the outset?

I've seen the motorcycle the the front wheel in the trunk here in the US.

I've had 2 instances of overloaded.
The first was a junker Chevy LUV truck that we loaded too many logs into. They weren't stacked so high but the weight broke the springs. That was early high school.
The second was later high school where we put 10 people in a Chevette. It broke the rear shock mount.

No more overloading. Get the right tool for the job.
