The deadly cow 🐮


#1

Curious about deaths by cow in the suttas, I found out that it does indeed happen.
:open_mouth: :scream: :cow:


#2

I really feel you are talking a bit much about cows lately, Karl. Please be careful! :pray:

(If not a cow, it could also be a car… :oncoming_automobile:)

Cows are lovely, especially when you scratch their heads.:yum:

A bit funny/sad part of the article about cows ‘Every year, cows kill more people than sharks. And yet nobody ever makes a horror movie about them, and there’s no Cow Week.’

If you want to see a horror movie about cows, it’s playing from 9 to 5 at your local slaughterhouse :cut_of_meat: :plate_with_cutlery: :plate_with_cutlery:

There’s a horror film about killer sheep called “Black Sheep”, but I can’t think of one about cows. Haven’t cows been bred to be placid and docile? All the ones I’ve talked to seemed really laid back.


#6

There’s a difference between equanimity and not having metta towards yourself.


#7

You need to talk to them in the right way, of course. :laughing:

Martin, “The Cow Whisperer”.


#9

I hear cows with calves are quite dangerous…


#10

People who said that haven’t taken a selfie with them. “Say grass” :cow:


#11

I’ve had cows :cow2: chilling in my front garden, while I was generating metta towards them! They seemed soothed.


#12

I’ve tried it with cats, but they are more of a challenge. :grin:


#13

They need you to crouch down. Insecure, perhaps!


#14

Less so with the food bowl in your lap. :grin:


#15

‘cows with guns’ - it’s a youtube cartoon, and it’s funny!
