Living like a goat isn’t fun

<em>Coffee</em> Tins In case you wondered:

For his new book GoatMan: How I Took a Holiday from Being Human, Thwaites donned a four-legged exoskeleton, cultivated a funky-smelling beard, and grazed with a herd on a Swiss mountain. But, over the course of a three-day vacation from humanity, Thwaites stumbled headfirst into an inconvenient truth: Being a goat is harder than it looks. Thwaites’s experiment tested him in ways he hadn’t expected it to and forced him to confront both his own humanity and the elemental aspects of goat-ness. More.

Reality check: One consequence of automation is that many people who probably aren’t needed anywhere to put food on the table or mop up will discover these types of facts.

    Why not just go camping to get away from it all? Too traditional?

    I wonder how many government grants he got for this nonsense? I know he would have in Canada.

      He got at least one grant as there was an earlier post on BCF about this guy.

    Well, all I can say is that I’m glad I’m a “dog person”. I love dogs and at least you can talk to them and they understand what you are saying, unlike cats who just can’t be bothered. 🙂
