    I don't know what's more impressive, that none of them lost their hats or that 300 people showed up to move it. I usually can't even get a couple of people to help me move a gun safe. Sometimes the old ways are best. I probably would have hooked onto it with a backhoe and tore it all to hell trying to drag it.

    You'd be hard pressed to find that many people willing to work in our entire town.

    Some of the best people I know. Had one build a pole barn for me, had to wait 6 months he was so backed up. Couldn't ask for a better job.

    Egyptian teamwork -- that's how the pyramids were built. Ten thousand guys pulling on the rope and one guy with a whip. :)

    Anyone else wouldn't be able to gather up that many bodies much less pay them....maybe the military, but thats about it!

    You notice the frames they used -- a horizontal beam for the men to carry, and vertical beams going up (presumably to the roof) to support the weight of the structure. I kept waiting to see one of those vertical beams come through the roof.

    Or for one guy to stumble and fall. :)

    I thought the Amish folks didn’t like being on video?

    They don't like having personal photos taken of them, especially their faces. They think it's vain. But they don't object to being recorded at a distance like that. And they know how to do that stuff. If they did that 1,000 times, there'd never be one scratch on that barn.
