Centre-pivot irrigator

In 1952, a U.S. patent for a "Self-Propelled Sprinkling Irrigating Apparatus" was issued to Frank L. Zybach of Strasburg, Colorado (No. 2,604,359). A centre-pivoted pipe supported on a series of water-piston-powered wheels rotates and sprinkles water on the crops.A control system ensures that each wheel advances at the correct rate. This is the now-familiar centre-pivot machine that waters large circles of crops in those areas of a country which have limited rainfall but have a supply of surface or well water. It provides irrigation for large areas of even closely-spaced crops for which irrigation ditches are not practical and wasteful of water, or that would be expensive to supply with full coverage with stationary sprinklers.«[Image: a modern example showing the sprinkler pipe carried above a series of large wheels.]

Todd Barry: Germaphobe

It's paralyzing being a germaphobe; lots of places are really paralyzing to me. Laundromats have these baskets on wheels -- some guy will come in with a big bag of disgusting laundry, put it in the basket, move it into the washer. And I'm supposed to take my clean laundry out of the dryer, put it in that exact same basket. I don't mind something having a dual purpose but can't it be like, 'What's that big green box over there?' 'Oh that's a dumpster and we also use that to store soup.'
