Can we all just agree that people get famous for doing stupid things these days? I think this might fit into that category. A Midwestern guy has gained fame for dropping random things down an old mineshaft.

According to the video description on YouTube, this guy is Austin Tebbs. Austin lives in Wisconsin. It says that he "has produced a collection of viral videos in which he experiments by dropping a variety of items down an old mineshaft". His followers apparently make requests of things they'd like to see him drop. I found his channel on TikTok.

Oh, but that's not all. Ever want to see a microwave oven dropped down a mineshaft? Austin can help with that.

One of the most popular seems to be Austin vs a bunch of soda cans.

Nothing against Austin. I mean good for him that he's found a way to connect with an audience. There's just an older version of myself that wishes the world would find new ways to entertain itself. (*sigh*) I was also wondering what mine this is and if there's someone who owns the mine that might have a problem with this.

If watching gravity at work entertains you, you can follow Austin on TikTok like a lot of people seem to be already doing.
