  • It's a trap! We're just slaves again!

    Saw this

    and realized we've been duped again. All this green propaganda was just a ploy to turn us from lazy desk slaves into fit field slaves again. We think we're starting a revival, but the government just wanted us to grow more food for them. :P

          Just make sure you eat all the food you grow so *they* don't get any.

            Hey, I posted up a thread about this kind of thing not too long ago! Were I to have a yard, I'd certainly try mowing it with a scythe - they're terribly nifty things.

            In the meantime, I have an old sickle.

              Very good. Really exercise the obliques. And he gets the barefoot benefit.

                Just to think about that blade near my bare feet makes me shiver ...
                Why not just get a few rabbits, put them in a cage on low wheels and let them mow your lawn while you sunbathe

                  eh, after a few nifty scars, you figure it out. . .

                  reminds me to get back on the community gardening bandwagon.

                    We have an old sickle, too! It's definitely not as expedient or ergonomical for mowing our 3 acres of grass as a scythe is. We're actually looking at buying a scythe now, especially since Knifegill tends to kill most gas-powered lawn equipment (lawnmowers, weedwackers, etc. We're afraid to give him a chainsaw...). I guess he's just too much of a caveman!

                    Although, for the $200+ we'd be spending on a scythe, maybe we should buy some sheep and a fence... except, our baby is due in September, and I'd rather focus on taking care of the baby rather than a sheep. One thing at a time, and all. I hear babies really eat up your sleep, mental-capacities, energy, time, and sanity like nothing else...

                      Scythe for the win.

                        Supposedly, you can't actually cut your own feet while wielding the thing. Now, someone else's feet/leg that just happens to be in the wrong place, that's a different story!

                          I'm actually more afraid of stepping on a bee while barefoot than cutting myself. The one time I got stung by a bee was when I stepped on one while running in a sprinkler. Not fun! Needless to say, I don't walk in the grass barefoot anymore!

                            I'm not doing that barefoot. We have big scary waspy things and spiders, too!

                              You're losing your caveman cred with your fear of little creepy crawlies...
