I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

I had never seen that done. Interesting. Is that on your place, Mike?

When attempting to show that video to my spouse, it looked like a plug-up was imminent! The computer made it so jumpy the carrots appeared to be jumping up and down as well as moving forward.

I suspect that would be impossible in heavy SD gumbo soil. And unlikely the carrots would be uniform, too!

It is very interesting. Wonder what other 'miracle machines' are out there harvesting our food and other crops???
