Have a Cow, Man Owning a cow may be more involved than a backyard chicken, but when’s the last time you got farm-fresh milk from a hen? Maybe it’s time to buy the cow and get the milk for free. First off, decide if you want a dairy or beef cow. (Or neither; it’s perfectly valid to keep cows purely for ornamental reasons.) A dairy cow will require regular visits from an artificial inseminator or a local bull in order to keep her producing, as well as figuring out what to do with her calves.

Field of the Invention 29 Satirical Illustrations That Will Make You Question The World Around You Polish artist Pawel Kuczynski has worked in satirical illustration since 2004, specializing in thought-provoking images that make his audience question their everyday lives. His subjects deal with everything from social media to politics to poverty, and while most of them can be interpreted in more than one way, it's clear that they all have at least one very distinct message behind them.
