Is it wrong that the goat map made me hungry for curried goat?
People eat that? :o

Anyway, it's ok but only if it's Atku (that's the evil goat of the forums) ;D
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!

I'm "She Who Reigns Over Us All In Crimson Cheer", according to Peat!

People will eat *anything*. I got a box of jerky for my birthday yesterday that proved that amply - Alligator, Kangaroo... everything.

But yes, it's not unusual to see goat on the menu of Indian or Caribbean restaurants. Somewhere between beef and lamb, but with a gamier flavour than either.

Was stumbling around youtube and found this song which I find hilarious, in a bawdy way (it has a mild reference to men's parts)  :P
@ultamentkiller that's one thing you can easily enjoy as it's a song only :

I wonder about that one with a sword made of blood. It's neat.

This movie will be proof that a wise casting goes a long way to get non-regular fans involved. I've never cared for Dr. Strange, but I WILL go and watch this movie.

0.8mg Fe per Litre (Best Case) x5 litres per adult male(Best Case) x400 =1600 mg =1.6g less than the weight of a darning needle.

So yes you could make a sword out of the blood of 400 enemies but it would be very very small. 40,000 would be closer the mark.

Oh Gods how bored am I

This is amazing. Classic YA paperback covers redone with rather disturbing titles.
