Recently, I had the chance to tour the rural outlands of Northern Illinois. Jackie decided to spend the 4th of July with college chums up in Wisconsin. I drove her as far as Harvard, Illinois (up near the border). And by the way? That is way out in the middle of absolutely Nowhere!
Since I didn't have anyone to 'play' with, I brought Plankton along! We found some fences, saw epic trees, vast fields of rolled up hay bales ... and at one point, as we were driving along, we were both like: WTF!! We saw the most bizarre farming implement I've ever seen! I have no idea what this sinister contraption is used for. If anyone out there is well versed in farmland machinery, by all means chime in and enlighten us!!!
The "machine" I speak of is viewable in the comments. In the second image, you can see the barn where Plankton took cover, shaking his fists!
