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.

  • Imagine if the Nasa co worker didnt mention that punishment

    Daniel ReardonDaniel Reardon27 dögum síðan
  • Sounds like the punishment was a trick to get him to decide to dig the holes. The pecan trees were already planned and always going to happen, and he was likely already scheduled to do the labor but didn't know it. It's the right temporal and parietal junction that interprets these scenarios. The NASA coworker reframed the travel and pick up road trip he was always going to go on, because in that mindset, he was aware and interested, whereas if it were self framed, he'd have a teenage whatever attitude like it was work and a burden. This way, the meaningfulness of the generations was embedded and passed on. A person who feels like they're paying off a debt will do more than a person who feels like they're being made to do something against their will. Right TPJ social engineering at it's finest imo...

  • I would guess, that it does not make a huge difference in which direction the tree is shaken, because the thin twigs act like a rope. Take a rope, 2 or 3 meters long, and make kind of a two dimensional sine wave at one end, while the rope is hanging straight down. Watch the rope while doing that. Do it left and right, and then shift your movement 90 degrees, compare both cases. It will also work while the rope is laying on the floor, it is just more difficult to shift the movement by 90 degrees while having gravity. I guess it is the same for the tree, just upside-down compared to the hanging rope.

  • I grew up with a massive Pecan tree in my backyard as a kid. One of our chores/punishment was keeping all the sticks and pecans picked up. It was a never ending task! How I miss those Pecans! My grandfather has a couple trees, and I covet the 5 lbs I get for Christmas every year! Best gift ever!

  • This was very interesting to watch as I live in and amongst 4600 acres of pecan trees her in Green Valley Arizona. Most people don't realize how much work goes into growing pecans. It's a year around continuous process. If I could just see what's happening in the orchards I could tell you what time of year it is. Right now they are still harvesting some but mostly doing pruning. Thanks for the video! I subscribed.

  • regarding the shaking from two sides my first thought was not the direction but the frequency. There must certainly be a frequency at which each tree starts to resonate to a certain degree, if one was to find out which frequency that is or even had a tool that would automatically ramp through different frequencies to test each tree you could probably get more nuts off the tree in a shorter time frame.
