40 some years ago the wife and I were doing our hippie back to the land thing living on a farmstead, and raising our food through gardening and small livestock. Goats were part of the program and I found it very enjoyable to have them. Each had their own personality, timid, aggressive etc. My dogs learned to give them a wide berth after being head butted a few times. I wouldn't mind having a few on my property where I live now to keep the weeds and brush down as well as enjoying the milk but the mountain lions and coyotes would pick them off one by one so I leave the goats as a pleasant memory and enjoy the presence of the wildlife I see daily.

I see, hording sheep is probably more efficient. Although, supposedly they can get very nasty if they don't get what they want.

When I was in AF basic training during the mid-1960's, there were a couple of good old (actually about 18 years old) boys in the barracks who used to live on (apparently lonely) Kansas farms. They would tell us about how they would have fun with the rear end of female sheep and the front ends of young calves and how to select good ones for your sexual activities. Definitely creepy!  :o Frankly, after hearing those stories I was happy that I wasn't raised on a farm in Kansas. Hopefully there are now more young girls in and around Kansas farms and that is no longer an activity that is worth bragging about.

That old homily springs to mind: " (place your favorite state to denigrate here), where men are men & sheep are a'skeered..."

For those with a serious interest in goats, Goat Simulator 3 was announced just a few weeks back:

I must have missed something, there is a trucking & farmin simulator as well. I bet the electric trucks powered with solar panels on top therein do a 100mph with unlimited range. Finally I understand how the future is made.  :D

"Finally I understand how the future is made." Apparently with a lot of B.S... 
53 sq. ft. is about 5 square meters. Hot solar panels mounted on a curved surface, without moving the car, you'd likely recover maybe 4 KWH per day max, in Dallas or Phoenix in the summer. Tesla uses maybe 0.25 KWH/mile, so 4/.25 is maybe 16 miles flat ground, no AC of course. So you climb into a 170F car, roll down the windows, tootle off down the road sweating as the 115F-125F dries the sweat pouring into your eyes (Phoenix, not Dallas...). Sounds like a good argument for an air conditioned city bus.

The $254,000 luxury sedan was designed to be incredibly energy efficient — Lightyear didn’t even give it drag-producing side mirrors, opting instead for cameras — and as a result, it has a solid battery range of 388 miles.
The vehicle’s main selling point, though, is the 53 square feet of solar cells covering its exterior, which Lightyear says can provide up to 44 miles of range per day — in optimal weather conditions.
Lightyear plans to have a $30,000 solar electric car ready in 2024 or 2025.
According to the company’s testing, a person with a commute of 22 miles or fewer can go two months without charging the solar electric car if they live in a cloudy climate like the Netherlands. If they live somewhere sunnier, such as Spain, they could go seven months.

Nothing new under the sun, BS always wins out. You want to charge your mobilephoono in a reasonable amount of time, get at least 2 square meter of solar panels.

I wonder which poor soul has the job of checking all those "raisins" for diamonds...??

Someone must have forgotten to inform them that you can't eat diamonds.

I don't think that would bother goats too much.  ;)

It sure doesn't bother me very much, it's Bierfest time, time to eat the Schweinehaxen.

No chicken legs for you this time, sorry.  ;D
