This is the kind of item that gets a professional surveyor excited.
The DNR's Matt Dontz found this original cedar survey post in a stream near Atlanta, in Montmorency County recently. The General Land Office of the U.S. government did the survey of Michigan's townships in 1850. The post was set to mark a section, or quarter corner and were driven into the ground each half-mile. It was preserved by the water, Forestry and Surveying experts agree the find is extremely rare, even with today's GPS technology.
Chinese farmer Huang Demin has found a controversial yet effective way to make his pigs healthier by teaching them how to dive. He says that it tenderizes the meat and makes it three times more valuable from normal pork, which has attracted many people. Huang encourages the pigs to dive off a high wooden platform with a broom, and once in to the water, they swim back to shore. Huang claims that they enjoy the diving, but judging by their squeals, the pigs may not agree.” Video courtesy of barcroftmedia
