Nah. That's just Paul practicing so that he can use it to harvest his lemons when the trees mature.

the outfit my dad works for has a sort of heavy equipment olympics every few years. includes picking up and setting down a raw egg with a track hoe, backing a lowboy trailer around a corner between narrow barriers and bringing it to rest against a softball balanced on a traffic cone without knocking it off, and other such nonsense. pretty much everybody who entered completed their events successfully, so the winners were determined by time. personally, I consider it a success if I keep heavy equipment right-side-up.
