    I've decided to not try to "win the algorithm", and only make videos about what I'm genuinely interested in. Thank you very much for watching this video about Pecans. If you'd like to support a guy in Alabama making videos about (among other things) Pecans, please consider supporting here: I send literally every Patreon supporter a really cool baseball with a Smarter Every Day logo on it.

    I wonder if the pecans are starting to develop some natural defense mechanism against being shaken out and that's why the husks aren't functioning as expected anymore...

    Destin... in California a'monds are harvested the same way. Notice I said a'monds not almonds. Before harvest almonds grow the same as pecans with husks, shells, and 'meat'. They become a'monds after harvest because the machine shakes 'L out of them...

    I bought a house 1 month before my wife gave birth to my first child. It wasn't a fixer upper but just had some minor cosmetic issues but I had no idea how much time and energy this little bandit was about to steal from me. 10 years later, I have 3 boys and I'm pretty that I'm a net loss for fixing things vs how much damage they're doing. But now they're at an age where the punishments are doing my chores. Oh they don't even know the fun they're gonna have in their teen years. I have a gravel (unpaved) driveway that is two car widths wide, and about 3 cars long. :)

    First of all, awesome video! Second of all, PHENOMENAL cinematography!! I haven't been very involved in it since high school, and I'm absolutely BLOWN AWAY by what you're able to create Destin! Slow motion, timelapses, reversals, quadcopter videos, kinetic typography, all while syncing it with your choice of music. I'm blown away. Keep it up!
