Cows are the most genetically engineered species on earth. They’ve been put through a two thousand-year breeding process until we can get more use from the species than from any other animal (even more than pigs… ever drink a pig-milkshake?). Darwin could never have used cows as examples of natural selection because there is nothing natural about a cow. Eventually this unnatural state of evolution will have to stop… sure the heightened senses, the laser vision and adamantium hoofs will be awesome, but I think it’ll get pretty obvious we can’t have animals running around with the ability to teleport long distances.
Technical Stuff: I walked past a gas station and there was a pickup truck hauling about a dozen cows. Using my trusty Kodak C533 set on landscape, and multiple exposures, I took the shot without really looking… I think my back was actually to the trailer. So, in order to get a shot like this I think you’d have to start by developing fossil fuels, then create a distribution network to get the fuel to farmers carrying their livestock in short trailers. After that it gets pretty easy.
I don’t know who sings the song, or what the title is… which is unfortunate because it’s one of my favourite songs. I think the band is “Snuff” and the song might be called “Take Me Home”, it’s from a mixed CD a friend put together nine years ago, but I lost the liner notes. There’s a little volume control on the MP3 Player Thing, but I’d suggest turning your computer up to eleven and letting something hang out. But not that… that’s not a good choice at all. That’s cool though. Yeah, that’s just right.
