    Farmers are actual real life geniuses. They can feed themselves and fix anything. Serious respect.


    First of all, if you need to put together a grain bin, I recommend calling Danny. The man is a genius.
    His email is: dannylef2 at yah00 d0t c0m
    (I've typed his email address like that so webcrawlers won't detect it and spam him. If you're a farmer you're smart enough to figure that out.)

                                    Running crops isn't farming. That is called industrialized gardening. Farming is when you add animals.

                                      When I was a kid and we would go to Chuck E Cheese they would put your tickets on a scale to determine how many you had to turn in for prizes. We would splash water on the tickets to make them heavier.

                                          The change in accent while with the farmer is really interesting from a linguistic perspective. His accent is more southern, and Destin used a technique called convergence in order to make the situation easier socially. It’s something we all do all the time and may make an interesting video.

                                                    I never understood why urban people tend to make fun of farmers. Growing up in the countryside, I know that farmers tend to be freakin hardworking multitalent badasses
