(Des Moines Register)   If you're a farmer and a hunter, snowmobiler, or sports enthusiast hurts themselves on your property, you're legally in the clear. But if one teacher in your barn on field trip falls through a hay hole, you better lawyer up   (desmoinesregister.com) divider line 7

noitsnot: The snowmobiler booby trapping that people used to do was pretty creepy.  You'd see the chains strung between trees, so it wasn't just stories.

I have to admit, I've considered it.  I only have 7 acres and I don't depend on it to make money, like the farmers to, but it pisses me off when my land is destroyed by clowns on 4 wheelers or snowmobiles.

/I've opted to pile my brush at seemingly random but very strategic points on the edge of my property
//all you can get rose bushes fairly cheap at Home Depot if you don't mind semi scrawny ones, not much for flowering but they grow well and have thorns


CSB: When I was in about grade 2 (I went to a K-12 school) someone kept knocking down our snow forts at night. One day, the junior and senior high schools were all away on a field trip and we had a free day. We spent from about 9 - 3 building the thickest snowfort we could and pouring water on it, making sure we had finished and hid all the evidence before the high schoolers got back. The next day our snowfort was still there and there was a snowmobile track leading to the wall he hit and what appeared to be truck treads from whoever it was having to load their snowmobile back onto the truck. We found bits and pieces of the front of that snowmobile for months lol. Something to keep in mind. 0:)

With my property, the line on the west side is a stream/bog that runs down to the lake.  It works out so that the best route for both my neighbor and myself involves crossing both pieces of land based on a bend in the property line and a desire to avoid the bog.  So back in the 1990s we jointly built a trail, complete with a bridge over the stream that ran down to the lake where we each had a small boat dock, gazebo, and that type of stuff.

When quads as a sport became popular (and some of the cheaper models came out) people started tearing up part of that path as they dicked around.  The bridge itself was strong enough to support a Gator or similar utility tractor but one fall it was damaged by the wind.  So we slapped up some warning signs and caution tape just to cover our asses and waited for spring.  First week of Nov, the bridge collapsed as a pair of quads were going over it.  It was all of a 3 foot fall into knee deep water, but it was still a pleasure to watch a pair of bikers pushing their quads off our property and the sheriff intercepting them to hand out the trespassing citation.

/they even got in trouble with the DNR the pollution their quads did to the fresh water
//we've gone back and added gates and a split rail fence along the trail, but people pull it down to get onto the trail still

People who haven't seen their own genitalia in years should be instantly at fault for all injuries caused by them overpowering whatever they were standing on that normal humans wouldn't have a chance of breaking.  Enough's enough, stop being fat and more importantly stop using it as an excuse to break people's stuff and get away with it.

Good thing he wasn't a corn farmer.

This is stupid. It is the own farmers' fault for not having the administrators sign a legal document protecting them from lawsuits occurring from accidents on the property.

Or at least posting "No Fatties" signs around the areas of the property that could result in accidents involving obese people.

Seriously, it was her fault for being so fat that she broke the hay loft.
