Right behind the row of trees at the back of the corn field is where my apartment building is. The corn plants grew really fast. During the winter that area is just barren land. I saw seedlings during spring time and now the plants are fully grown. I think they’ve been spraying the plants with something because the trunk of the plant near the ground is turning yellow. I was always wondering when people will come by to pick the corn like in the Disney animation movie, Pocahontas, but that has yet to happen. And the corn are getting over-riped by now. My current hypothesis is that they might use some machinery to mow over all the corn plants, and the corn crop is probably headed to a corn oil factory. (Correction: just found out that the corn will most probably be made into animal feed)
It’s funny, when I first got my MacBook and I would be using it at night and occasionally I would smell some strange chemical smell. At first I thought it was some plastic components in the MacBook that’s burning up (since I’ve read so many MacBook overheating forum posts) but now I figured it is probably someone/some machine spraying the cornfield .
