    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.)

I think I get where Destin is coming from. He's a smart guy who views the world with a curious and analytical eye. He looks at tools we use on a regular basis and is amazed by the marvel of engineering, where many of us discount them as things that get the job done without thinking twice about how they work. Destin can't help but see that there's a lot of complex systems working together that make it all work. That's just how his mind works. He sees these complex systems and thinks, "these people must be geniuses," but a lot of these folks view it with a much narrower scope. They don't see the same complexity and nuance that Destin sees. I'm not saying that there aren't very smart people among farmers, because I'm sure there are. All I'm saying is I get why Destin thinks these folks are geniuses, when really many of them aren't. It helps him feel empathetic towards them if he imagines that they see the world the way he does, which is a noble effort, but I think that on some level it's still a lie that he tells himself. And that's okay.

In iron working we have those “punches” they’re called bull pins. They look a lot bigger than those lol. Basically the same use, used to align the steel for bolting up.

The video is good, and I'll rant about other thing; the Finnish translation of Video title and description feels awkward, although technically correct. Google's automatic translation maybe, but I hate these automatic translations, I want see in original language, but you can't change the setting without changing whole language system of Android phone :/

Wow! Flashback to my teens in the later '70's on a farm in south-central Minnesota. I finally found a subject that I knew better than Destin! :) We had a similar bin setup but the blower on one of the bins had a propane heater incorporated so we could use it for drying corn. It also had an auger that optionally went up the center of the pivot to cycle grain from the bottom to the top of the bin. I also worked for a company in the summer of '79 that sold not just bins but whole grain systems that weren't covered in this video. These grain 'legs' are the big Christmas tree shaped structures that hover above a set of bins. I helped with everything from the concrete work for the swimming pool type of dump pits at the base of the leg and bin slabs, to the steel work and leg down chute branches... Very interesting and dangerous job but my monkey climbing years are behind me now. However, I did not jack bins or operate the cranes and we did not have the handy electric tools back then.

I saw a guy below mention computer soil analysis. If I remember right, some of the oldest operational computers in the country are still doing that kind of work, I remember reading somewhere in VA or WV (TN?) there was an oooooold IBM from the 60s that was still chugging away doing just that. Kind of makes sense, considering the farmer's motto "if it ain't broke don't fix it". We personally still run equipment made 60 years ago.

Honestly most farmers are some of the nicest people. When i was a kid my friends and I would run through fields, play hide and seek, and stuff and one time they were cutting down everything and this one guy stopped his tractor and came out to talk to us. He explained that they were cutting everything down and we would need us to leave so we don't get hurt. He then let us sit in the cab as he cut down the crops and told us how everything works. Then gave us a ride out of the field. This other time i was walking past a farm and they had a bunch of horses and I was looking at what was going on as I went by and one of the people noticed me looking and invited me over to feed a few of the horses and they named every horse to me as we walked by.

There is a LOT of technology involved in modern farming. My very first interaction with a computer was the guy at the local Department of Agriculture branch doing soil analysis for us and we would go in and get a printout from him that told us the health of our soil and what we might do to improve it. This analysis included nutrients, pH, and other factors. This was 1972. I know it has come a LONG way since that time. Every type of farm has their own thing.
