This weekend I watched a short segment on the National Geographic channel about Myotonic Goats, more commonly known as the "fainting goat."
Suddenly I realized what my life had been missing up to this point.
Sometimes God made animals to put man in his place, examples of these are crickets, spiders, bigger spiders, and giant coconut crabs.
What's that? You said that giant crab on the trash can was real? Oh, good. I've been meaning to soil myself.
Seeing something reminiscent of the head exploding insect monsters from Cloverfield is always entertaining, but finding out that a slightly similar version of them exists in real life somehow turns this world into a much, much, more terrible place.
On the other hand, sometimes God made animals with no other purpose but to be laughed at. In this case, we're talking about goats that not only faint abruptly when startled, but have a tendency to faint face forward into the dirt.
This next video is rather beautiful, as a woman attempts to provide the goats with an ounce of respect while footage is played depicting her relatives chasing down those very same goats with an an over-sized umbrella.
It's a beautiful thing.
