Farting cows and sheep are bad for the environment, as I’m sure we all already know. They produce methane gas which is more damaging to the environment than carbon dioxide. An Australian scientist has a solution, however.
Switching from beef to kangaroo burgers could significantly help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, says an Australian scientist.
“Tut-tut, tut-tut,” says Skippy.
“What’s that, Skip?” I reply. “The mad* Australian scientist wants to eat you?”
Is there much money to be made from kangaroo farming in the north-east of England, do you think? Could be a win-win situation, methinks… unless you’re a kangaroo…
*Not that the scientist in question is really mad. If you’re his lawyer, that was just a joke. Honest.
It’s been an interesting week in the blogosphere for me. My stats are steadily climbing and this week has seen me reach (with one day left) another weekly high. The comments I’m receiving are, as always, extremely helpful and encouraging (not to mention entertaining!)
This aside, as I mentioned in a previous post, I was interviewed this week by The Pakistani Spectator — a large, multi-author Pakistani blog that aims to “foster peace, progress and harmony with passion.” The interview was a fascinating and enjoyable experience. Nowhere near as daunting as I had expected (it was my first interview of this kind.) I replied to their questions and thought that would be that.
How wrong can you be?
I heard back from them fairly quickly asking me if I would be interested in writing for them. I considered this a huge compliment but I wasn’t quite sure how my work would fit in on a site where the articles were rather Pakistan-centric. I therefore asked a few questions before committing and got the answers I would have hoped for. I was assured I could write “with liberty” and so gladly accepted the kind invitation.
I’m now, officially, a writer for The Pakistani Spectator. In order to ease myself into it and test the water, my first piece was a repost of my Where the Buck Stops post from earlier in the week. So far, on The Pakistani Spectator, it’s had 3,838 views and is receiving very encouraging comments.
Time will of course tell, but I think it’s going to be an extremely interesting and educational experience.
