To be fair to dodge this was clearly a case of user error.

Fields can be deceptive. If you look at the top soil around this mud it looks pretty dry. There was no way any pickup was going to make it through there though.

@Der Seeteufel - SD my cousins are farmers and they hired (white) south africans last year. they said they were good people and hard workers

2018-06-08 23:15:25 UTC  

at first glance I thought that was just pickup tug'o'war

2018-06-08 23:15:57 UTC  

@Deleted User so did I, I was going to ask who won? 😂

2018-06-08 23:16:43 UTC  

@Zyzz yeah no one ever complains about their work ethic. My boss said he'd hire them too, but they're too expensive.

2018-06-08 23:18:56 UTC  

I'm not sure what SAs ask for, but I get paid $13/hr + room and board.

2018-06-08 23:20:30 UTC  

Not sure what that's like state adjusted

2018-06-08 23:22:50 UTC  

Honestly it's pretty good for me. I don't pay for housing or food, and I'm a disabled vet so the military takes care of my medical. I could make a lot more money somewhere else but I can't emphasize enough how much I love my job.

2018-06-08 23:24:00 UTC  

Plus SD cost of living is pretty low so I'm actually doing ok financially.

2018-06-08 23:24:54 UTC  

huh, that sounds really good then

2018-06-08 23:25:20 UTC  

y'all best not be putting harmful chemicals in our food now 😤

2018-06-08 23:26:26 UTC  

one thing i really like about Europe is their food quality

2018-06-08 23:26:40 UTC  

no gmo, chemicals, pesticides, hormores, or any of that other nonsense

2018-06-08 23:27:11 UTC  

food is more expensive and portions of smaller but its better for you and i think that shows up in how much better looking the people are than your avg white american

2018-06-08 23:27:54 UTC  

would tend to agree, we're very unhealthy

2018-06-08 23:36:59 UTC  

Lol! I load the concentrated stuff into these sprayers without PPE so if I live you're probably safe. Honestly the harshest stuff we use is ammonia. Organic farmers need the same chemicals to produce their crops too. They just need to fertilize a lot more often because bird scat has less of what you need and a bunch of other stuff that you didn't want in the first place. I personally don't buy into a lot of the organic propaganda. I was a nuclear reactor operator in the navy and I like to think I have a pretty good understanding of chemistry. There might be some disadvantages to using modern herbicides but I am personally in the good outweighing the bad camp. Now if we could just stop using our scientific advances to feed worthless people everything would be perfect.

@Deleted User if I was going to boil down my opinion I would have to say that I basically bathe in synthetic crops and chemicals all day and if anything I've become infinitely more Chad since I started here. If you are concerned about your food don't be an urbanite and grow it yourself. There is no way in hell eating GMOs makes you more of a fag than someone who shops at Trader Joe's.

2018-06-08 23:55:10 UTC  

Lol, no yeah what goes into those crops is probably the least of our chemical worries anyways

2018-06-08 23:56:16 UTC  

Yeah. I don't even touch tap water. That s*** is making the frogs gay.

2018-06-08 23:56:58 UTC  

I've got well water and a decent purifying system in the basement

2018-06-08 23:57:31 UTC  

I drink bottled water more than I probably should though

2018-06-08 23:59:55 UTC  

if anything the rest comes from soap/shampoo additives and stuff

2018-06-09 00:01:49 UTC  

Everything is relative. If you are even sort of careful you'll probably live until your too old to care for yourself anyway. One of my biggest fears is becoming a burden on my family. But I guess that's just me being white.

2018-06-09 00:04:51 UTC  

tfw a burden on family still 😳

2018-06-09 00:05:21 UTC  

am a youngin though

2018-06-09 00:21:40 UTC  

@Deleted User how old are you?

2018-06-09 00:45:00 UTC  

Tide is 47

2018-06-09 00:50:55 UTC  

48 this August 😄

2018-06-09 00:55:57 UTC  

No but really, just turned 21 this may

2018-06-09 00:56:39 UTC  

Goyd damn son! Get out of thine father's house. To be fair though I wasn't independent until I was 19 which is a year later than I would have liked.

2018-06-09 00:57:50 UTC  

Yeahh I'll figure something out

2018-06-09 00:58:06 UTC  

are you in school?

2018-06-09 00:59:03 UTC  

I turned 21 this may, as well. About to move out.

2018-06-09 00:59:07 UTC  

with some ie guys

2018-06-09 00:59:33 UTC  

That's great @Rogue !

2018-06-09 01:00:28 UTC  

That's what IE should be all about. Helping each other however we can!

2018-06-09 01:01:22 UTC  

@Zyzz No I'm not, never was one for it.

2018-06-09 01:01:58 UTC  

trade or military then
