70% of all red meat consumed worldwide is goat meat!

70% of all red meat consumed worldwide is goat meat!


In the United States alone, the number of goats slaughtered has doubled every 10 years, for the past 3 decades. The reason for this trend is perhaps because of the popularity of goat meat on a global scale. Goat meat is considered kosher, as well as halal, meaning it can be eaten by members of two internationally recognized religions.

The nutritional value of goat meat is substantial, with a similar sized serving of goat meat having one third the calories of beef, and much less fat. First goat cheese, and now goat meat is proving to be a healthy alternative for the flavors of food that we just can't seem to ignore.

Will you be trying goat meat any time soon?

The British Parliament once considered stuffing bankers into sacks and throwing them into a river!

The British Parliament once considered stuffing bankers into sacks and throwing them into a river!


The South Sea Company was estimated to be an extremely profitable trade organization, and potentials flocked in the early 18th Century in order to buy shares in the company. Bankers had stated that the Company can't fail, as it was granted exclusive rights to trading with Spanish Colonies in South America and the West Indies. In exchange for this arrangement, the South Sea Company just had to take on all of England's war debts and pay them off. Simple enough.

As investors poured in, the future of the South Sea Company looked promising despite the fact that the amount of money the company was going to bring in wasn't very high. The shares continued to rise, until one day, they plummeted. All the investors seeking fortune began to sell their shares for much less than what they bought them for, only making the drop in shares even greater.

The British Parliament was frustrated that a company with such potential was able to crash and burn so quickly. In fact, Parliament was so frustrated that they suggested tying all bankers in sacks and throwing them into the River Thames!

Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia. So let's say you do have this phobia. You'd be terrify to name your ailment. Kind of a conundrum.
