Real men of genius stuff right there. I’m not sure which aspect of it I like best. Of course the power plant that’s normally used to cut plants is sublime.

Working below your feet is awful. Bending over all day to work on stuff at ground level is bad enough, but if it’s in a trench, and you’re not, it’s ten times worse. This guy’s got it all figured out. You stand in the trench, and you glue up all the bell and spigot joints at around waist level because the pipe is lying on the ground.

Ahem. You see that apparatus at the end of the run? That’s a walking irrigator. The pipe carries water to spray on a crop, not crude oil or natural gas or something. So what if it leaks a bit? It just gets to the roots that much faster.

See, this guy gets it. You buy radio-controlled toys for your kids at Christmastime, and let them play with them for several minutes. Then they get bored and go back to playing Clash of Clans on their smartphones. Bwahahaha. Now it’s your turn. …
