There are disadvantages to living on several acres out in the country.
It's a long walk to the shops. Fast Internet can be a problem. If you're having a heart attack, the ambulance may come too late.
But on the other hand, there's this.
(I'm sure I've linked to videos of anvil shooting on previous occasions; hell, the pastime's even had its own TV special now. But if anything deserves a repost...)
Some might suggest that standard anvil patterns have a hollow in the bottom because it saves a little weight and a little money, and has no effect on the all-important hammer-bounciness of the top surface.
Others know the real reason.
