    Exclamation Goat-savers

    We need these, just in case.

    You're using big words right now that you don't know the meaning of and you're capitalizing them. You shouldn't do that. ~Osito

    Have I mentioned recently how much I love goats? I think my next dog will be a goat.
    For some, "how", not "why", is the fundamental unit of measure for curiosity. This divergence is neither parallel, nor straight. Where one might have a "why?-5" problem, it might only be a "how?-2" question. But then, there are also many things where the "why?" is immediately obvious but the "how?" is best measured in centuries of perpetual wonder. Both approaches have their drawbacks.

    If one is superior, the other is unaware of it.

    The "goats in equilibrium" title made me expect the goats to be a lot more peaceful and considerate than they actually are. They don't even know how to share or be happy with what they have.

    True, it's not the very Acme of Self-Actualization Acumen. It's kinda like the best that most of us can hope for...

    The two small goats hit on a good solution when they climbed up the steel sheet from opposite ends. Would they be smart enough keep doing it, though?

    For goats, that is equilibrium: any of them can be on top next.

    Furthermore, it looks to me like they are sharing and are incredibly happy with what they have. You sound like you've never figured out how to enjoy playing "King of the Mountain". You have my pity. It was an awesomely fun way to wait for the school bus in the second and third grade.

    Just a reminder that this is a thing now. It is happening. You can give them your money.



    And in the interest of keeping things cute:
