Looks Like Another Boring Day

“The farmer is the only man in our economy who buys everything at retail, sells everything at wholesale, and pays the freight both ways.” — John F. Kennedy

This just under 4 minute video, cheekily titled  “How to Fold a Fitted Sheet,”  shows you in real time how long it takes to destroy a grain storage bin.

Given the current politico-cultural milieu a good sub-titled might be “Biden’s America: the devolution of a perfectly good structure.” It is oddly compelling though, like watching a train wreck.

If you’re inclined, here is a 16+ minute video that shows the flip side: something of the science, engineering and economics involved in the building of such a structure, from the top down strangely enough. It also shows the use and value of having such a grain bin. It’s not quite as sexy as the demolition video which perhaps explains everything you need to know about the current popularity of watching train wrecks as a spectator sport.

Remember: To a Prog a day without destruction is like, you know, just another day.
