Warning: This video is harrowing.
OK, that was a pretty bad joke. I apologize. But hey, the video’s cool. Guys growing stuff. Farming is still a grown up little boy activity. You get to bomb around in big machines. Unlike the highway, you make more money if you go faster, instead of getting a speeding ticket. There’s nothing to crash into.
People respect farmers. Many paper pushers long for the kind of job, like farming, where you can see the results of your efforts at the end of the day. For instance, early in the morning, the field is tan. End of the day, it’s slightly darker tan. That’s visible progress. Middle of the season, it’s greenish. End of the season, your bank account’s greenish, and the field’s tan again. Like a good video game, you get to press the reset button and start all over again. If the good lord’s willing and the creek don’t rise.
