Good-bye academia, I will now be devoting my life to raising these fine creatures for fun and profit...

For a moment I thought you were serious. Happy New Year!

Now, Marja-Leena, why do you assume I'm joking?! I'm going to breed them very tiny so that city dwellers, too, can enjoy the glory that is the fainting goat. I weep with joy.

There's farm in Tennessee that specializes in raising these goats. The farm and the goats were featured in an episode of Dirty Jobs. Truly hysterical watching Mike Rowe running around trying to scare the goats to make them faint. (It's a hereditary disorder that makes them faint but I can't remember what it is.)

So weird- I heard about these goats quite a few years ago, and now La Wombat, Mythbusters and apparently Dirty Jobs are featuring them.
I believe there's some sort of chemical physiological change that stiffens the muscle of their legs...it's pathetic, but freakin' funny.
