    got in touch with a coworker's husband this weekend, who works at a brewery, and he talked with his boss this week, and they're going to use some of the corn we're growing now to make a cream ale...once it's harvested, and milled at the local historic mill. i don't drink, but i think we'll be able to lure a whole different type of visitors than usual with our own beer!That may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    some communities allow a surprising amount of tech, but only if it's for work, so their employers buy the ebike, and take it out of their check over the months, and i guesssssss that's what makes it ok??That may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    partner spent a few years in PA and always talks about this rad mennonite he knew there who would sell produce from his pickup (okay because it's used for work) and would just give away loads of food because he couldn't make more than 10k/year to avoid paying taxes, because the government will use it for war. There's obviously lots of variation between groups but always admired that firm commitment"life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    Oh for sure. I mean there are Mennonites on the West coast that are waaaay more liberal than PA/etc. One of my college girlfriends mentioned that she's Mennonite and I was like.........what?! The Mennonites around where my dad is from drove cars but they were all like black/gray in color, very basic, etc. There were Amish horse and buggies as well.

    I once heard an interview with an Amish guy, over the phone. The phone was in a separate little building (essentially a phone booth) that was off the main building (furniture shop) - so it was for work, but it was also separate because as he said, it's not the technology itself that's bad but the distraction from what really matters (family/work/religion/etc.). So they could have a phone because they needed it for work, but it was outside so as not to be a distraction. I have to say I like that.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    the main guy/company that makes horse treadmills with a PTO so you can use it to power an ice cream churn (or other things, but my main focus is my farmer's market startup, HORSE FRAPPE, where both the churn and blender are horse powered and we charge crazy money) is i think mennonite, and doesn't have a website, which i have been annoyed by several times in the last 2 yearsThat may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    The horse gets exercise while everyone else bombs themselves with calories... sounds good to me.

    Counter plan: The business is called "Spin Frappe." You ride a stationary bike which drives, first, an ice cream maker, then powers the freezer for the several hours it takes until the ice cream is ready, and, finally, it powers the frappe machine. At the end, you've burned roughly the same amount of calories that you'll ingest from the frappe. TAKE THAT, SHARK TANK.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    actually kind of janky because i have very little experience with stained glass, but i did this with my dad in the last few days. thinkin' about asking a blacksmith lady i know to help me make it a table, with a flat piece of glass suspended above the wheel, maybe? cuz i have nowhere to hang this in the sun...

    hypothetically yes, but it's mega heavy and you're bringing your own glass shards to ruin your own day...That may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo

    mega heavy just equals more momentum once you get going!

    and you could always make it with a rear wheel, so any glass would only get people behind you...DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D
