  2. hard to believe the "mystery pieces" were received with no skids under them. do you think the guys forks scratched any of that nice black paint?

  3. .. Where is the god damn truck.. I can't find it.. Well, i take another round… 😆😆

  4. Quiero compartir con todos ustedes aquí cómo recibí mi préstamo para financiar mi negocio de aserradero con la compañía de préstamos públicos Inc, fue muy rápido y seguro con la suma de $ 500000 a una tasa de 2% a cambio, si usted es interesados verifique mi descripción para más información..

  5. Make structures out of stainless steel, then you won't have to paint.😉😵‍💫

  6. 5:14 Those look like really heavy duty link sections of a chain. I have a lego set that has similar looking pieces and they connect together to make a belt like chain…

  7. The mystery objects are clearly links in a booster-size bicycle chain.

    Kidding aside, they do look like they link together as a chain somehow.

  8. The raptor forklift guy….been cloned! This video was well edited when he was shifting those raptors.

  9. Not sure what to say about the mystery stuff, certainly ground support, not flight hardware. Something goes through the smooth shiny parts and moves. Somewhere in the Star World.

  10. Just amazing that only just over 3 years ago Star Hopper was just doing static fire tests, now here we are only 3 years later watching the first orbital prototype being tested. Speed of progress on Starship has been just mind blowing.

  11. Mystery parts: my guess is they are for the big Liebherr crane, they look like they would connect to the tracks, perhaps to anchor it down to a heavier base for big lifts at a wider radius.

  12. Quite a bit of forking going on in this one. Might need to rate it R (for Rocket 😏).

  13. Mystery items look like butterfly hinges and given the color they may be for the chopsticks @5:03 (video time code)

  14. Might the new mystery parts be for the chopsticks. Specifically I mean the rails that raise/lowen when they catch the booster

  15. 1:11 that guy is a professional… stop for the camera, carry on look to camera "did you get your shot, Mary? Wait for the net drive by and spot the difference… hair down!" He did the pause for camera in a previous video too lol
