Zimbabwean Farmer Shocked As Cow Gives Birth To A Pig

Cow_gives_birth_to_pig

Could it be…. Satan?

A Zimbabwean farmer was left stunned when his cow gave birth to a piglet. The farmer, Mr Tinos Mberi of Chatsworth in Masvingo eastern highlands of the country said he could not believe his eyes when he saw the strange animal. He said it was impossible for a pig to mate with a cow.

“The whole body and size was that of a piglet. The nose and mouth was like that of a pig, except that it did not have a hairy body,” said Mr Mberi. He said it was difficult to attribute the strange occurrence to anything other than witchcraft…

Bullshit Made Into Paper By New Zealand Man

Bullshit_paper_man 4321

Paper From Poo is a great deal.
While Jesus may have turned water into wine, Andrew Reilly from Rangitikei has gone for a more practical transformation – he’s figured out a way to turn bull dung into paper. During studies towards his Bachelor of Fine Arts at Whanganui UCOL, Mr Reilly discovered an affinity for paper-making. In his research, he found different cultures were making paper from many fibrous materials – including kangaroo poo, wombat faeces and elephant manure. Back in his hometown of Bulls, there was one logical step.

A couple of bull farmers were more than happy for Mr Reilly to clear their paddocks, and he went to work with the pooper scooper. Figuring out how to turn raw poo into paper took a bit longer – 15 months in fact, for the smooth transformation to be honed. First Mr Reilly has to rehydrate the bull patties, covering them with litres of water in plastic buckets and leaving them to soak…

How Americans’ Diets Have Changed Over the Past Century

food chart 1432

A recent issue of a US Department of Agriculture publication includes an examination of how America’s food choices have changed over the past one hundred years. As you can see from one of the charts provided in the article, we’re eating a lot more chicken. The authors explain why:

Chicken availability over the past 100 years illustrates the effects of new technologies and product development. Increased chicken availability from 10.4 pounds per person in 1909 to 58.8 pounds in 2008 reflects the industry’s development of lower cost, meaty broilers in the 1940s and later, ready-to cook products, such as boneless breasts and chicken nuggets, as well as ready-to-eat products, such as pre-cooked chicken strips to toss in salads or pasta dishes.

Yay! Now the world has beefy abominations.

Chinese scientists have created the world’s first genetically modified cow that can give milk rich in Omega-3 fatty acid, Xinhua reported.

“Two embryo-cloned and genetically-modified dairy cows were born June 23 last year. One of the cows has been found to have Omega-3 fatty acid level 10 times higher than a normal cow,” said Li Guangpeng, head of the Biological Technology Laboratory at Inner Mongolia University.

“We did not announce the birth of the cows until now because it has taken time to check the cows’ effective genetic traces,” Li said…

Cow Belches

Oh That Smell Can You Smell That Smell

The Process for the Utilization of Ruminant Animal Methane Emissions sometimes referred to as Patent# US 6982161, involves a device patented in 2006 that traps the belches of cows. Why, you may ask, would anyone in their right mind (or even in their wrong one) want to do that? The answer sort of relates to global warming. Will using this process save the planet? Probably not, but here’s how it works anyway.

Set your compasses to “Bovine North”

Have you ever noticed that herds of grazing animals all face the same way? Images from Google Earth have confirmed that cattle tend to align their bodies in a north-south direction. Wild deer also display this behavior – a phenomenon that has apparently gone unnoticed by herdsmen and hunters for thousands of years.
