who else is in the “didn’t realize sheep have long tails until i was like 20″ club
The reason most farmers dock (cut off) the tails is to prevent fly strike, an often lethal infection of fly larvae in the rear of the sheep. Without a (VERY FLUFFY) tail for fecal matter to accumulate on, fly strike is almost completely eliminated!
there is a wide variety of similar treatments for farm animals that are entirely for the animals well being
pigs get their tail curled and tusks removed as babies so they dont accidentally nip each other while playing or stab each other just walking around- even a small tail nip might be fatal once the other pigs react to the scent of blood
goats/cows often have their horns removed as babies as well both for obvious reasons to prevent stabbings but also to prevent them from growing in weird that can cause pain and infection for the animal
chickens and other poultry, especially pet ones or hobby farms, might have their flight feathers clipped to prevent them from flying over fences, where their life expectancy is nill outside the farm/owners enclosure
Very good and valid points but please tell me what you mean by “might be fatal once the other pigs react to the scent of blood” before I lose my marbles
Pigs are omnivores and cannibals. Fun fact if you ever have need to dispose of a body, tossing it in a pigpen will get rid of it real fast.
There’s a reason why everyone went into a full blown panic when Dorothy fell into the pigpen in the Wizard of Oz. Pigs are vicious.
It’s a beautiful day and you’re a horrible goose charm.
I made this little guy with a magnet in the beak so he can steal mini charms of items from the game! These will be available in my shop later this week! I want to add a little bow tie ribbon to hold all the charms first.
I think its very cool and Sexy of me to have completely avoided interacting with or having any knowledge of game of thrones. that cultural zeitgeist went on for years, cost millions of dollars and wasted hours of people’s lives. but me? I don’t know her

Finally listened to all music! My favorite song was an untitled file called “ssssddsdrt66677888.ogg” that I found on a flash drive that I found in a landfill in Tunisia
In case anyone is actually into this there are 3 volumes of these:
Ok so at first I was like “oh haha funny meme” then I was actually impressed by this cellphone music thing??
I looked it up and just listening to the first volume I am blown away like transcended a new level of music creators/Saharan culture blown away guys pLEASe listen to this itissogood
Bought vol 1. It’s extremely good.

“Friend? Friend push ball? I push ball. I do good.”
Bees. Smart enough to push a ball, not smart enough to not be fooled by a stick masquerading as a bee.
maybe they know and they’re just being polite
Other dimensional beings are undoubtedly amazed at what human beings will accept as human beings too. “But it’s just a stick with a person on it.”
doggo is not confused or scared btw, this is how dogs prompt each other to play
“Come on let’s go play ”
the kitten is not scared either, and if it’s confused, moreso by the edge of the sidewalk than by the behavior of the dog
that’s a confident kitten slowly following a trusted friend around.

I never heard of an electric kettle until this moment
When we need hot water we microwave a glass and hope we can hit the right temperature
like idiotsjust as the founding fathers intended
One of the weirdest cultural differences I discovered when doll customising is that Americans dont use electric kettles?
Is this a joke or do Americans seriously microwave water?
This American does, indeed, use an electric kettle like a responsible adult!
We use a stovetop kettle. I was wondering about this the other day and it has to do with household current in the UK making electric kettles boil faster than they would on a stove.
London has an annual conference for things that are really boring. The Boring Conference celebrates subjects that are considered mundane, ordinary, trivial, or pointless, but when examined more closely can be deeply fascinating. In the past, speakers have discussed sneezing, toast, vending machine sounds, the features of the Yamaha PSR-175 Portatune keyboard, and the Comic Sans font.
