    What the heck was it made of?

    Corgi's run about 26 pounds, baby elephants are ~200.

    So that Corgi-sized meteor (they're 10-12 " at the shoulder, 22-26" long) weighed 800 pounds. Looking at the breed's stated measurements (10-12" at withers, 22-26" long, and guessing at the width being roughly the height I'll estimate they occupy a rough volume of about 11"x23"x6" ~1518 ci.

    This gives out meteor a density of about .53 pounds/ci, 239g/16.387 CC, or 14.6g/cc, significantly higher than iron (7.2g/cc) or lead (11.34), or mercury (13.6) and approaching gold (17.2).

    That meteor might be valuable to find!

    Oh, there's nothing to see here, no suspicious circumstances. Just another isolated mass destruction of food incident.
    Anyone care for a plateful of crickets?

    Didn't someone make a condiment out of powdered crickets a few years back? I seem to remember Tucker Carlson doing a commentary on a burger made with them.

    There are 86400 seconds in 24 hours (one day). Divide that by 18000 cows and you get 4.8 sec per cow. Let's say it really takes 5 minutes (300 sec) to milk a cow. Then you need 300/4.8 = 63 milking "lines" working 24/7 to handle the flow.

    I'm sure my figures are wildly optimistic but, regardless, that's an incredible operation.

    BTW, I know nothing about dairy farming. Are dairy cows milked more than once a day?

    It's gone way past mere condiments; now progressed into the main course.
    Not the same as lobster becoming a favorite fare of the wealthy, not the same as butts (flatfish) becoming halibut, not the same as gluten free orange juice, . . .
    However, not much different from artificial cheeses, vegan hamburgers, grain and fruit additives, or flavorless paste awaiting 'season to taste' bs.

    Humans have a specific dental arrangement; not all pointed like carnivores, not all flat like herbivores, identical hardware to that of omnivores.
    Mother Nature knew what she was doing. Even the oldest skeletons found prove it.

    Among other tidbits "Most dairy cows are milked two to three times per day. On average, a cow will produce six to seven gallons of milk each day."

    There are certain things milked non-stop;

    Nice find on twitter: https://twitter.com/WMCActionNews5/s...35043643707392 . A hog is measured in the everyday unit of a Mini Cooper.
