I mean, I don't even think I could name 17 different types of beef and yet one delicious, blood thickening burger will have all that in between its buns. Totaling in at over 2,500 calories and costing more than 40 bucks, the Holy Cow burger is basically like sandwiching an entire cow. With that much beef, you can't…
If it's not birds, it's cows. Over the weekend, 390 cows were being transported by Boeing 747. As the plane was somewhere over the Irish Sea, a fire alarm went off, and the pilot was forced to give a mayday call and make an unscheduled landing.
Watching this video is a little like peeling off a blackhead-laden nose strip, picking away at sloughs of sunburnt skin, or popping a particularly tumid zit. It's unequivocally disgusting, but also gratifying in the sort of way that makes you wonder if there might be something wrong with you. (I spent this entire…
Everyone, this is Lilli. Lilli has six — count them — six legs. You can actually see her two little extra limbs dangling just so from her left side. She wears them well, don't you think?
This is Lilli. She's a seven-week-old calf and she has six legs. She also beat her veterinary's prediction that she wouldn't last after birth and she's now happily living in Switzerland. Happily pasturing in the peaceful fields of Weissenburg, waiting for the world to end!
Cows are quite possibly the most important domesticated animal in human history, providing vast quantities of meat, dairy products, leather, and let's not forget manure for fertilizer. And yet DNA analysis reveals ancient humans almost didn't succeed in domesticating cows at all.
The next time you're in Florida for a sporting event, your LTE connection could be provided by a COW, Verizon's portable cell phone tower on wheels.
There's no such thing anymore as just eating a steak. Was it grass fed? Did it have a hobby? Now, thanks to a group of Irish chemists, you'll never have to worry again about your Porterhouse's diet. Just your own.
Organic! Local! Grass-fed! Fanned with palm fronds! All those terms used to describe food usually mean diddly squat to me because I'm a simpleton eater. If it tastes good, it is good. But athletes—people who need to care about their body—are starting to get into eating grass-fed beef craze because of the health…
There is such thing as human cheese. How is it human? Well, er, it's made from the breast milk of women. Human women. That's not gross, right? It's breast milk, it's natural. Uh no, still gross. Would you eat it, though?
This is a message to all vegetarians and vegans out there. From rubber to adhesives to anti-aging creams to medicines to shampoo to instrument strings to plastic to charcoal to wallpaper to air filters: You can't run from beef! [Streakr]
The livestock power mill makes cows even more productive turning farms into virtual power plants.
I've heard the one about vegetables growing bigger if you play classical music at them, but cows that watch TV (of the Swiss Alps, no less) makes them "more happy and productive"?
Nancy Dickenson and her stepdaughter Martha found a calf with severe frostbite on its hind legs. So of course, they spent thousands of dollars getting it outfitted with prosthetic legs.
Ah, the heady days of 1994. Back then, computers were beige and sold with surfing cow wallpaper, and we liked it that way, dammit.
