Love it. It's amazing how much the sound adds to the videos.

I found the cows to be anatomically...uncomfortable, but other than that, those were all pretty neat.

Wow, that really summed up the frustration

As an engineer that was very frustrating. You can't push a rope backwards, people! It's fundamental. Plus that pulley was in completely the wrong position for that job.

Man, what an inefficient system. Why can't they just put a winch on the front of that tractor, have the guy attach his cable, and then reel in the progress bar remotely? It would solve so many problems!

This is the first time I've watched 5 things on Vimeo in a row, usually they just buffer forever, and I curse the source for not using YouTube.
