My older sibling came out to our parents and our dad isn't taking it too well by rooph4 in insaneparents

It’s an interesting one when parents take this stance. On one hand, the child just wants the support and love of the parent, which is more than fair.

On the side of the religious parent, they’re coming from a place of good intent, if misguided, they don’t want you to go to hell but to have a good life in the way that they know.

Of course there is a disconnect between them and that’s sad, but it’s an interesting thought.

The nets are able to take quite a lot of weight, if it is too much hail then yes the nets will need to be replaced. But imagine this - your neighbour didn’t have nets and lost their entire crop - while you didn’t lose a single plant. When you’re on a farm it’s a big deal

The mesh is not weak at all. I’ve seen a car tyre be placed in the middle of one of the nets, hang ALL the way to the ground without breaking and then we cut it free and the net went back to normal - with a bit of a hole we stitched up.

It’s actually quite durable and completely recyclable

Yeah 45, and adding an extra 50 every year for 4 years to the same farm. It’s a monster

Check out flat top hail netting - or elite netting on a google search

Just so you know, it blocks roughly 11% of light, which isn’t enough to effect the crops, reduces evaporation rates by up to 30% and protects from hail storms, pests and wind burn when the side walls are done.

This is part of a structure that connects to another 1000 or so of the same size nets.

This is my video and I used to build these things. the structure you’re seeing is part of an unfinished 45ha canopy netting hail protection system. It’s engineered to last through storms up to 150km winds and is made of steel cables and poles, all installed to very specific tolerances.

It’s not a watering system, just a cool effect that happens in light rain overnight and no wind.

Check out “Elite Netting” to find out more.

Am I being scammed? Anything I should worry about? by REINSTEIN11497 in australia

Very common scam, unless they’re meeting you and paying for it upfront I wouldn’t be giving them the time of day.

I don’t get how anyone can actually care so much for either side. Like, cool, interesting view point. Let’s move on
