An essay on the breed of goat, by Foggers. Prepare to be Chazzle Dazzled!
Yes, these animals do exist. This is not a joke. Fainting goats are serious business.
The fainting goat is a breed of domestic goat that has a special super-power. You are probably thinking "cool, it can turn invisible! Or it's really strong, or maybe it can fly!" but this power is more incredible than it. When startled, the goat will faint for roughly ten seconds. An interesting thing to note abou
Well I stopped writing in my blog which I was going to use to record my epic 4 month journey around the world. The reason I stopped is quite simple, India drove me nuts and... well as time has gone on (I've been home for a while now, thank God!) I appreciate it more. My wallet was stolen, which had my Greencard, bank cards and spare cash, as well as my camera (which had some amazing photos) and my ipod (which had some amazing music). I was very annoyed and bitter about the whole thing.
Left Goa as we heard a place called Gokarna was very nice, which it is. Goa got far too touristy and we went to a market and I nearly had a nervous breakdown. Sometimes I think "India is okay" but other times I want to leave. Don't have much option, must keep my mind open but it clashes with my personality.
Oh well, naught I can do with that.
Gokarna is off the beaten trail and full of people with dreads, braids and bongo drums. I feel out of place here with my messy hair and what not but $%&a
I finally left Mumbai and it was about time.
Tuesday was spent on Elephanta Island which was very nice. A guide met us as we got off the boat and started explaining about the island and it's history. Initially we thought "what scam is he going to try and pull on us?" but told us it would only be 300 rupees plus we would have to pay to get into the caves further up the island. Turned out to be a very nice man and a very good guide. Apparently the island's people have 90% in the tourist trade and
I'm travelling at the moment, arrived in Mumbai on Saturday morning. This is intended for me to use later on to shift onto my computer back home and since I don't want to sign up for another blog thing I'm just using this. If people read it then that's cool.
The heat hits you pretty hard as you step off the plane. Driving through Mumbai is a bizarre experience as your sense are hit with all these new sights, smells and sounds. You try to think about what you were expecting and I didn't even kno
The geo-political governing body that is supposed to be able to sanction people and put other international pressures on other countries that is known as the United Nations has done a terrific job again concerning the current flared Arab-Israeli crisis.
from BBC website. Oh great. That works all the time. Throw down your weapons, let the IDF and Hamas embrace eachother.Some more UN victories from recent years (taken from Wikipedia UN page)

After I Stumbleupon-ed a Youtube video of Ron Paul speaking about the auto bailout, I decided to check him out on Wikipedia because he made some interesting points.
Not to say all of his points were good but a few are worth highlighting.
You may agree in terms of the bailouts, but this is an essential part of a welfare state or system. Our taxes would go towards people who are un-employed, retired, disabled and generally very poor. In terms of the auto bailout it would be money going towards
I saw a good play last night called Black Watch which is about the regiments deployment in Iraq during 2004. There was some controversy when the US military command requested that the Black Watch move further north from Basrah out of the British Army's area of operations. At the time the Labour Government were accused of making this a political move to get more friendly with the administration of that time. One interesting thing said in the play is that before the Black Watch arrived just outsid
