I think this is only a means to end tumblr stories that end with "... and everyone started clapping".

This is a Zebu.

They are a sub-species of domesticated cattle that live primarily in South Asia.

I wonder what it tastes like? Whenever I had beef in the Asiatic regions it definately had a slightly different taste than what I was used to from US beef.

I wonder what it tastes like? Whenever I had beef in the Asiatic regions it definately had a slightly different taste than what I was used to from US beef.

 

 

has been explained to us asian beef tastes different not so much 'cause o' fundamental differences 'tween cows, but 'cause o' way in which cows is fed.  few folks here in the us has ever actual eaten beef which is fed on nothing save local roughages whereas most asian cows (with the exception o' japan) is more likely to be fed local roughages.  us cows destined for plate as steak typically have a high percentage o' grain in their diet--corn, milo, oats and barley. such diet has a dramatic impact on the taste o' the beef, and such grains is not gonna be common fodder for asian cows.

 

in our experience, eat steak from a hokkaido cow fed most on grains and is gonna taste near same as typical american beef cow.  eat beef in se asia and you is gonna notice an oddness to beef which is gonna be complete foreign... 'less you has had beef raised on small ranches in the american se which were fed mostly local verdant grasses as 'posed to grains. asian beef, particularly from asian street vendors, tastes familiar... grassy.  sharp?  fishy grassy? 

 

we tend to talk with cooks and chefs wherever we go.  is amazing how much folks will tell you if you simply ask e'm, particular if what you is asking is something 'bout which they know or like.  admitted, most o' our time in asia has been korea, japan, taiwan, and singapore, so is less zebu and the like, but we also spent a fair amount o' time in the philippines and east timor and a bit o' time in china, cambodia, thailand and laos.  have spent only a small 'mount o' time in indonesia and malaysia as there tends to be far fewer opportunities for a free speech/religion religion guy to be getting an invite from local universities and lawyer associations in those nations.  no good excuse for having only passed through vietnam a couple times. regardless, explanation from local food experts matches our own experience from eating beef not raised for supermarket consumption.  taste o' beef is not so much a result o' fundamental differences in cows but rather in differences in bovine diet.  

 

HA! Good Fun!

Towson University police warn of a woman on the loose, looking for a date for her son

 

Towson University police have asked students and staff to be on the lookout for a woman in her 50s wearing a multicolored scarf. She’s looking for a date for her son.

 
Students complained to officers that she approached them last week in two campus buildings, the Cook Library and Center for the Arts, showing them a picture on her cell phone and asking if they were interested in dating her son.
 
It caused enough of a disturbance that police alerted students via an “incident advisory” that included a link to surveillance footage of the woman. They asked anyone with information about the woman or the incidents to contact university police.
 
University officials said the woman isn’t being sought for any criminal investigation, but simply to put the behavior to a stop.

(dog image)

 

is a nice image, but our dogs, three of four, would go absolute bat-crap crazy if they were approached by a strange dog, while in a vulnerable condition, in a vet office.  am not sure how they know, but we put dogs in the 97 chrysler minivan (our dog-specific motor transport... best purchase of last 10 years) with intent o' taking 'em to vet, and they know. apprehension becomes palpable on the trip to vet. one dog reacts to fear by becoming almost narcoleptic, which is nice.  two dogs become agitated and lose bladder control and look for a corner in which to hide... then they try to dig further into the corner. crating them doesn't help much. the final dog, our oldest border collie, has anger issues.  the old girl is a rescue (all save one o' our dogs is rescue) and has never become true socialized.  the oldest border collie doesn't like anybody not family and at unspecific rare moments, am not certain she likes Gromnir much either. she loves to cuddle, right up until she doesn't. mercurial.

 

none o' our dogs is dog people.  two 'o our dogs like humans. one pooch is afraid o' everything.  one pooch is always a hair's-breadth away from channeling her inner critical bill.

 

 

got no idea how many near misses we have had with strangers who reach out to pet critical bill without permission.

 

"it's ok. dogs like me."

 

*sigh*

 

HA! Good Fun!
