    So, the floor of the grain bin has many tiny holes in it and the mother of all fans is blowing air up through those holes.
    Am I the only one thinking . . . .ULTIMATE AIR HOCKEY TABLE!!!

    "Farmers are the backbone of America."
    Living in California, I've noticed that nobody here seems to realize how important the middle of the country and the people that live there are to the sustainability of our country. I'm really thankful that you took the time to not just make this video, but bring attention to the fact that farmers are still just as important as they've always been.

    Destin: "Man, punches are the best"
    Breaking News: Destin found unconscious in dark alley, muttering something to himself about how farmers are geniuses. After recuperating after a day of rest, he claims whoever hit him must have done it in the name of science.

    It's pretty funny to hear you pick up a southern accent (7:33 and 8:37). I do that when I go back to where I grew up. My wife finds it hilarious.

    My favorite part is how you can hear his accent come out the more he talks to some of these guys. It's like he hits a button and activates 'Southern Mode'.

    Spent two summers putting up bins. 65 to 100 foot in diameter 100 foot to the eves.
    Nothing like going around 100 foot circle tightening a bolt every inch and a half, repeat 30 times.

    There was no discussion about grain silo explosions. Grain dust is highly combustible. Follow-up video, recreate a grain dust explosion, unconfined and confined.

    I used to work for a company when i was in my early 20s. I would do the interview process with new potential hires. Had a guy who used ot work on a farm...as he told me what he did on it, I just went "I dont really care about his education anymore". Farmers can work really hard, they know how to structure things, routines are a given with them. The guy ended up being one of the best workers for that company.

    The amount of your work to create this video and helping those people building grain bins are massive and amazing. Thank you for this great video man!

    Great video. Farming is really poorly understood by so many people who grew up in towns and cities.
    I was a town kid too but I'm lucky enough to have gone to school with farm kids and spent plenty of time seeing how their farms operated (dairy farms not grain, but there's plenty of mechanical effort in milking machines and refrigerated raw milk storage too).
    Any farmer who can last more than a season has to be able to handle any one of a hundred different problems, mostly without outside help. And they're so modest about it. If civilisation crashed and burned, these guys would be some of the few people who would carry on just fine.
    Also I'm a chemical engineer and that bit where you were showing the grain being dried is an example of an desorption process. That moving wave of a drying zone with dry behind it and wet ahead of it is a classic feature of adsorption/desorption processes. So there's a bit of chemical engineering going on at that farm too.

    Great video. I could see a series: technology we simply drive by and never notice. Grain bins, stop lights, power sub stations, etc.

    For all the non farmers out there, this is a really nice grain bin setup... lots of bins are a wood floor and walls and nothing more.
