This makes me want to cry.

Same here, buddy. Same here.

Ohhhhhhh

The notes make me angry, no way all 120,000+ people don’t eat chickens. Kiss my ass.

Goats can Solve Complex Mechanical Puzzles, Remember The Solution Nearly a Year Later

New research found that most goats tested could quickly figure out how to solve a “mechanical puzzle” that yielded a delicious piece of fruit. In this case they had to pull on and then lift up a lever, a “highly novel cognitive task.” Completing this two-step process caused a box to open, within which was a piece of fruit. Of the 12 goats tested, nine of them got it within fewer than a dozen trials on average. Two of them were disqualified for trying to pry open the fruit-box with their horns, which actually might have been a smart idea (and it’s not like the goats knew they’d be DQ’ed), and one was dismissed as hopeless upon not showing signs of learning the task after 22 trials.  
The scientists re-tested the goats 10 months later, and this time they solved the puzzle much more quickly, within two minutes. "The speed at which the goats completed the task at 10 months compared to how long it took them to learn indicates excellent long-term memory," co-author Dr Elodie Briefer, at ETH Zurich, said in a statement. 
The study, published this week in Frontiers in Zoology, shows that goats can learn rather quickly, and can also store these lessons in long-term memory.

We had an easter egg hunt at work today, and one of my salaried coworkers found this coupon in their egg and gave it to me!! How sweet ^-^ 

(The coupon was useless to them because they’re salaried vs my getting an hourly rate) (so thoughtful!!)

The first and the last ones are the only ones with curtains on the sides. That makes it seem like it’s a play, opening its curtains at the beginning and closing them at the end.

You ask me why I refuse to eat flesh. I, for my part, am
astonished that you can put in your mouth the corpse of a
dead animal, astonished that you do not find it nasty to chew
hacked flesh and swallow the juices of death-wounds.
