(Des Moines Register)   Most farmers who fall into a grain bin of corn never come out alive. This guy is an exception. "Doctors told me if I were 10 years older, my heart would have exploded from how fast it was beating"   (desmoinesregister.com) divider line 22

This creeping malaise.

How can I find my way out of this maize?

Lady Indica: WTFDYW: That is one lucky son of a gun. Glad he made it out alive.

Hope he buys a safety harness instead of using a rope. Hope he also knows not to enter a grain bin without having a look out watching over FROM OUTSIDE the opening.

Is it like a climbing harness, where if the corn drops out from under him, he won't fall into the pocket? If so...I don't understand how that's not mandatory (along with a spotter) for anyone dicking around in a silo. Or is it mandatory but not enforced?

This is why we need to kill all the corn while they're still babies.

Astorix: Farm accidents are in the top ten ways guys get killed. My cousin was trying to step over an auger in a silo to turn it off and he fell in. the ager caught his overalls and pulled him in until his uncle ran over to turn it off.
He would have been toast if not for my uncle.

Also this same cousin ran into the transformer shack to escape a thunderstorm. Got struck by lightning. Didn't get killed but his shirt got burnt off.

/not the brightest crayon in the box.


Your cousin is obviously a super hero with an extra chromosome. He's not too bright, but he can't be killed by anything on this earth.

We need giants to shake the bin and then the farmer would float to the top. Like a toy in a cereal box.
