Whenever I am in need of a post topic, I visit my friend the Bible Belt Blogger and he fills me up, today with a BBC story about how an Indian airline was chopping off goat heads to appease the gods. The BBB says:

This may be the first time that goats have died to prevent Boeing 757s from experiencing mechanical difficulties. However, I’ve read that chickens are sometimes fired, at high speeds—into the sides of jumbo jets to be sure they’re structurally sound.
