You are not in the heat cutting it like I was today. I was drinking water like a camel after doing it.

One hopes that he took into account the fact that internal combustion engines emit carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide as a consequence of running. It is rather cool though.

Sometimes the fish learns how to drive. It's all smooth sailing from then on.

Neat project and nicely done but I don't think that mower was designed to carry al that extra weight.
Would have been better to use aluminum rather than wood.
And it looks more like a M113 APC than an actual tank.

Hehe I like it.  A great way to get the kids to mow the lawn or invade the neigbours.

Everything is more satisfying when done in a tank...

"Satisfying"", not "Effective".

Not my cup of tea, either way.

Batwing mower laughs at your shenanigans.

Yeah, that's where I want to be on a hot summer day, sealed inside a box with an engine blowing fumes and making heat under my butt.  Sign me up.

When I'm in a tank, to cut the grass I use a daisy cutter.

...says the person who does not know why grass needs to be cut.

My great uncle Guss Thingbee attached a manure spreader to his knucklehead Harley. Wasn't pretty but covered a lot of ground at 60mph.

Because then the city fines you $500 a day that it's not cut once it gets too long.

Ask me about the note from the city  taped to my door when I got back from 3 month film shoot.  The company I contracted with to mow my grass never bothered to show up and actually do it.

there is no such thing as a grass cutter or a lawn cutter. there is a lawn mower. it is called 'mowing the lawn'. midwesterners are grammatically infuriating. 'derp, I am going to gas up the lawn mower and cut the grass, derp'.

also using 'by' rather than 'with' ('I am going to stay by my parents' meaning stay with them is confusing).

I do like Euchre though so I can forgive the fact your command of the English language is minimal.

if you are being serious, some plants are very smart and their leaves don't shade each other  (it is a Fibonacci series thing and pretty interesting actually) others will definitely shade themselves and hurt themselves. grasses probably evolved thinking cows would eat them so they just grow as fast as they can. now that my lawn has no cows I need to mow it to save it from itself. it won't quite kill itself but definitely is not optimal if I want it green.

grass is a really dumb ground cover in some areas.

Did Bob Semple design it?
