Do we really want to know why 奥さん ワイフ was searching for goat videos?





Not . . . that there is . . . anything wrong with it.

Is it true that rare Italian goats were airlifted to Afghanistan?

Did Defense Department employees go to carpet tradeshows in Europe? How about on jewelry-related trips to India?

These might seem like unusual questions for the Pentagon, but lawmakers at a hearing Wednesday were trying to figure out how, exactly, a task force spent about $638 million on economic development in Afghanistan.

China Blames Goats For 2015 Drop In Birth Rate

Actually an interesting article once you get past the bit about the "year of the goat" superstition.

Remember that this is still a country with what is now a 2-child policy but was still a 1-child policy until last year. It is still against the rules to have a third child, fwiw.

So if anything the headline should be "China Thanks Goats For 2015 Drop In Birth Rate".

As the article states, the bureaucrats there seem to have some faulty assumptions, like that they can control the birth rate in China to whatever they want it to be that year, by central planning.
This week, China's National Health and Family Planning Commission cited these folk beliefs as part of an explanation for a decline in births in 2015. According to the latest statistics, 16.5 million babies were born in China last year, some 320,000 fewer than in 2014. The commission's reasoning: People decided not to have babies because "Year of the Goat" babies are linked to bad luck.
They predicted that there would be more births last year, because in 2013, family planning policies were amended to allow couples to have a second child if either parent was a second child. But these estimates, it turned out, were off the mark.

The commission predicts that the number of newborns will climb to between 17.5 and 21 million annually for the next five years.
I think they may find that, like in Japan and other developed countries, once the culture shifts to small-family culture, people won't just go back to shitting out a litter of brats just because you tell them they are allowed to now.

Oregon will not be renewing a scheme which uses goats to eat invasive species due to rising costs and complaints over the animals' odour.

Salem, the state capital, hired a herd of 75 goats to munch their way through plants like Armenian blackberry in the city's largest park.

But costs came to more than five times the city would have spent on human landscapers, a report found.

The goats also ate native plants among the invasive species, the report added.

The six-week pilot programme ended last November and there are no plans to renew it, city officials said.

Aside from their cost, the goats left behind a "heavily fertilized area", the city's public works operations manager Mark Becktel told the Statesman Journal.

The park was also said to have a "barnyard aroma" due to the goats' presence.
http://www.statesmanjournal.com/story/n ... /80860622/#
According to the report presented Monday, the total cost to the city for using the nannies and billies, which were "universally welcomed by park users as a pleasant pastoral addition to the scenery," was $20,719. Ruminate on that, if you will.

...

The city also had to deal with what the goats left behind, which was a "heavily fertilized area," said Mark Becktel, public works operations manager for the city of Salem. "If you know what I mean."

Had the city alternatively used a city parks maintenance operator for 32 hours, it could have achieved nearly the same results for $3,370. Since the park area is relatively flat, it can be mowed using a Bobcat unit with a mowing attachment. The site would still require a small inmate crew to clear vegetation from around trees and from tight corners.

I remember reading Eliphas Levi when I was a foolish young man looking for answers. The only answer I found was that he was full of shit!
