    That’s impressive! (Rolling a combine). 😬

    I’m an engineer who designs roadways. We always have difficulty getting deer to cross in a safe way including trying to get deer to look both ways before crossing. We are in the process of studying adding deer crossing traffic signals but we are struggling to get deer to push the pedestrian button to get the walk time. :wink: :biggrin2:


    Wasn’t this phone call from several years ago. I remember hearing this a couple times in the past.

    I saw Rube’s post on the “The Music Never Stopped” thread about Kacey Musgrave performing nude on SNL. I’ve actually been able to supplement my income over the decades quite nicely by people paying decent sums of money to keep my clothes on. Of course, I don’t count my wife in that because it’s not money coming in from the outside. :lol:

    The Seinfeld episode about good naked vs bad naked was on last night. I love Elaine’s line about the female body being a work of art while the male body is utilitarian like a Jeep. It’s just for getting around.

    Our last night in Johannesburg, we head back home tomorrow. It has been a fabulous trip, I can’t believe the animals and interesting behavior we’ve seen.

    Great guides really made the trip. Sitting around “bush tv” aka a bonfire each night shooting the shit with guides, other travelers was so fun.

    Highlights: hyenas and vultures ripping apart a fresh kill-nasty business but we couldn’t stop watching. A new born baby giraffe still wobbly on his feet. Lions laying in the road so close we could hear them purr! Elephants walking by our vehicle, stopping to inspect us, giving us the eye.

    What I won’t miss? 5am wake ups so you’re out by dawn, animals most active in the cool morning. The :censored: paperwork involved each time we went to a new country. All of Africa LOVES paperwork, it employs more folks. Why have one sheet when 5 will do, each asking for the same info and when you hand it in they don’t even look at it. 7 Covid tests (the stick up the nose kind) in 25 days. Iffy internet usually when we needed it the most for downloading results and QR code’s made for too much stress.

    But I loved each and every day, it was always different. If you ever want to go to Africa PM me. We had a great travel agent who arranged exactly what we wanted.

    I remember the immigration process for both Ethiopia and Kenya being incredibly inefficient and somewhat expensive especially since you have to pay the immigration fee with their currencies. Safaris are so incredibly cool as is Africa in general. Lovely people everywhere you go and curious where you are from. Glad you enjoyed it. We witnessed a lion family politely eating a kill which involved them going one at a time to eat by themselves…very disciplined hierarchy of who eats first, second… etc. Sounds very different than the hyena family.

    I’m cutting back at work from a 1.0 to a .8 with the potential of 1.0 hrs, so I can be more hands on and help with the kids. It started this week and I was able to get our oldest off the bus all week. I’m off today and I was able to put her on the bus this morning. She may be non verbal but her smile and laugh will melt your heart getting her on and off the bus!!!

    Days like today when crypto is rocketing upwards. I don’t have a life changing amount of money invested in crypto, but a decent enough amount to get excited about. It’s a pretty fun rollercoaster to follow!

    I will be honest, I don’t get the whole craze at all. Not interested in learning either.

    I will be kicking folks off my lawn tomorrow as well….

    Crypto is basically a ponzi scheme. The people in early made lots of money. They had people talking it up. They made most of the money. Eventually, it will tank because there is nothing behind it other than hope. That is not an investment strategy.

    And it’s not insured, and very open to hacks.

    Calling it a ponzi scheme is ridiculous IMO. Are there ponzi schemes WITHIN crypto? Yes. There are pump and dump schemes that are designed to screw people over so a few people can laugh their way to the bank. But to say “crypto is basically a ponzi scheme” is kind of akin to saying “sales/marketing is basically a ponzi scheme” because pyramid schemes exist.

    I’d also dispute the “very open to hacks” claim.

    Is it a risky investment, and could it all go to zero? Yeah. That’s why I don’t have a life changing amount of money invested in it. But are there also some very legitimate crypto projects that have a real chance to break into the mainstream of daily life? Absolutely.

    So for now, I’m investing my rainy day fund money, and enjoying the ride :)

    It is very open to hacks, and the lack of insurance is troubling. If FDIC (or similar) gets behind it, that may change my view. It’s just too risky and volatile.

    Rube, one of the single biggest things that gives crypto a chance to succeed is because it fundamentally can’t really be hacked. It’s decentralized. There’s not one centralized “system” to hack into.

    Can people “hack” individual users’ accounts by cracking their passwords and stealing all their money? Yes. And if that happens, you’re right, it’s not FDIC insured, so you’re bleeped. That’s why you better be damn sure you have a secure password + 2 factor authentication.

    So instead of the concern that it can be “hacked”, the concern should be that if you don’t secure your account properly, and someone gets into it, you very likely will be out everything.

    https://www.technologyreview.com/2019/02/19/239592/once-hailed-as-unhackable-blockchains-are-now-getting-hacked/

    Just saying.

    The first couple look like exchanges being hacked, which happens. And that’s the situation I described, where if you don’t have your account secured properly, you could get screwed over.

    The last one is interesting, the 51% attack, but here’s an interesting passage from the article:

    “For popular blockchains, attempting this sort of heist is likely to be extremely expensive. According to the website Crypto51, renting enough mining power to attack Bitcoin would currently cost more than $260,000 per hour. But it gets much cheaper quickly as you move down the list of the more than 1,500 cryptocurrencies out there”

    So it costs more than a quarter million dollars an hour to successfully attack bitcoin. Say there’s a hacker group with millions of dollars lying around and they’re able to steal a bunch of bitcoin. What will happen once news of that gets out? Everyone will sell their BTC, and the price plummets. So all that BTC they just stole will rapidly become less and less valuable.

    So, they’d have to front potentially millions of dollars, knowing that as soon as they get their hands on these assets, they will almost certainly plummet in value. Doesn’t seem like a very smart business decision.

    Or have “alleged” front money. They get someone to front them (happens all the time in scams). Things of that nature. It’s rather common in pre-paid phone cards. This is just a different venue.

    A lot of people. Invest some money to make more? This is why scams work. Yes, you can make some money in digi-coin, I personally think it is too high-risk. Too many opportunities, too much volatility to even think about it.

    Playing golf with your significant other at Mississippi National. What a great day!! We did 36 both courses. Such a fun albeit quirky Highlands 18. That 17th hole featuring the 150 ft drop is just bizarre but gorgeous.

    The hotel my friends and I stayed at (the Moxy, by US Bank Stadium) had free table-shuffleboard, free bubble hockey, and free foosball. That’s a win.

    I like to get out on Sundays and ride my bike around the area, with the goal going down a new road, neighborhood, trail etc. Today’s weather was just perfect! Not too hot or cold, only a light breeze, just a beautiful sunny day! I stayed out almost two hours and saw lots of new scenery.

    I went during the Vikes game so it was probably extra quiet which is fine by me!

    I could use another month of weather like this, it was absolutely gorgeous here in MN.

    DEFINITELY great weather. Hot enough during the day, and nice and crisp at night.

    There is nothing better than dropping a big monthly payment (student loans, car loans, mortgage, and the biggest of all….daycare).

    My payments were not bad at all, to be honest. Loan scheduled to be paid off Feb 2023 officially, and I was on pace to pay it off by about Aug 2022. I had called today to check the balance left, and said screw it, I’ll just pay the rest off now. :D

    About 2 more years and we will be done with daycare…just in time to be only a few years from college.

    We still have out mortgage but we have about 9 years left. It’s nice to see that balance finally starting to go down by a meaningful amount every month

    Making memories with my 3 kids. Making up for lost time and not so fun memories in their past.

    I think we were celebrating your good fortune as a way to harass your old man. Have you told her you’re 673rd in line for the throne of Luxembourg? :D

    In all seriousness though congratulations

    Finished corn harvest for another year. Now the boring tillage process begins. Surprisingly only missed 1 Gopher home game during the October harvest.

    Soybeans ended a bit below average. Corn ended up my best crop ever with over 200 bu/acre on my home place. I was shocked by that. The other farm that is 10 miles north and is on sandy ground, ended up average. After a very questionable weather wise summer, I am grateful for what I got and know many further north were not as fortunate.

    I have friends in northeaster South Dakota (Webster area), and they had a pretty mediocre year for corn. Below average yields overall and in some areas little yield at all.

    I shared a similar pic on fb last week and tagged all my Montana farmer friends.

    Perfect weather in Duluth this past weekend.. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and made it a perfect weekend for my wife and I. We went up Friday and hung out in Superior Friday evening. Saturday we slept in, got up and went up along the North Shore to our favorite spots as well as Gooseberry Falls and Split Rock. Spent some time along Canal Park before the game. Even with everything being busy with it being MEA weekend, UMD parent’s weekend, one of the last busy weekends along the North Shore till spring and the Dogs hosting the Gophers. The weekend and weather was great!!!

    Being able to experience fall again for the first time since 2013 (leaves hadn’t yet changed when I moved in 2014). This is my parents’ driveway. Imagine this view 360 degrees and you get a small sense of their property (1.5 acres in the middle of a suburb, the closest house 75-200 yards away in any direction). It is immensely beautiful and serene and it’s no wonder they’ve chosen to only spend 3-4 months per year in FL, CA and AZ for this and other reasons.

    We were looking at a place like that last year but they accepted an offer the night before we had a scheduled viewing. Really stunk it was in our budget.

    Walked into a small town MN bar today (Willernie, visiting a friend), wearing my Bills Mafia hoodie. First thing bartender said to me, while chuckling, “Uh, we do like our tables as they are, okay?” :D Well played, Mr Barkeep, well played.

    Started at Roma, and then finished at Frigaard’s across the street. Roma is a good place, great food, very nice tap selection. Frigaard’s, you can still smell the stale smoke in the walls, but decent patio, and CHEAP prices. Total townie bar.
