MAN BECOMES GOAT
Thomas Thwaites gave up being human to be a goat for a few days. Thwaites had prthestics made to allow him to scamper around on all fours comfortable and is current contemplating a prosthetic stomach that would allow him to eat grass. According to Thomas (or should we called him Billy?) the reason he became a psuedo goat is:
“Posthumanism, transhumanism technology and stuff, is about allowing humans to achieve their desires in a way.‘And I guess [some people’s] desires aren’t necessarily to become super intelligent.”
Thomas even wrote book if you want to read it called “GoatMan How I Took a Holiday from Being Human”
MAN IN BEAR COSTUME HARRASSES MOM BEAR AND HER TWO CUBS
YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT. A man dressed in a realistic bear suit ran through a group of people standing at the side of a road watching bears by the Chilkoot River in Alaska. The Chilkoot Lake Weir, typically used to count the salmon, is a popluar place to watch this prticular mother bear with her cubs. Chilkoot Lake weir technician Lou Cenicola saw the man as he ran through the crowd. The man got within 10 feet of the cubs the started to jump up and down. When they tried to talk to the man he informed them that they had his license plate they could figure out who he was. Then he drove off till wearing the bear costume. No word on the Mother Bear’s reaction.
