How many Afghans was that? Of course some will say that, some have a lot to lose if their friends leave, tribal societies are like that. Are you saying you think this 'proves' all Afghans want the US and UK to stay? How convenient is that for the warmongers and their fellow-travelling apologists? I suppose that's why even police and soldiers can suddenly start shooting at the foreigners.Great stuff Hugh indeed.

Apparently ruminants don't naturally generate methane and garlic kills the bacteria that does.

After a short while, if you move the stack, you may have noticed a powerful odour, indubitably grassy yet powerfully sweet and composty. If you have, and you dislike that smell, then cows have bad breath.

I noted the plug the doctor got in for more funding - how much are they already being paid to do that ridiculous research? They haven't even tried it on cattle yet - for heaven's sake! It's not going to kill a cow to feed it a bit of tarragon, is it?

It's not something I have ever really considered before.

It's good to take a sideways look at the world sometimes, and I can manage pretty well without the usual run-of-the-mill politics, sport, finance...

Great stuff from Hugh as usual. Mon 19 Jul 2010 17:02:20 GMT+1
