    I'm guessing cause we had 1200 acres for those cattle and the stockyards they were all in such a small area, but I was ready to throw up. :emoji_disappointed_relieved:

    I secretly think one of my dogs is acting dumb on purpose because I'll let them get away with more. I have Titan trained a bit like a watch dog because he's so big and it makes him easier to control. He's still so goofy though. I don't know how that gigantic head has such a tiny brain in it.

    The tiny dog has figured out how to climb him and get to places she usually can't reach, like the kitchen counters where I kept the treat jar. She knocked it over and got all the treats out, then threw up all the treats she ate. Too smart for her own good.

    Probably too many animals in too little space? If cows have enough room to roam it shouldn't smell that horrible. My old middle school was surrounded by cow pastures on 3 sides and it didn't smell awful. My older middle school that was two miles down the road from the chicken processing plan on the other hand, you basically had to pray the wind would blow the other way.

    I actually have two instances of Tampermonkey(regular + beta) for this very reason. When one Panda crashes, i launch the other one and just keep going back and forth since some days it works, other days it doesnt. You could sign on tomorrow having not done anything and it would have likely worked. I have no idea why its so sporadic. If anybody has insight as to how to fix it, let me know.

    Yeah. I think this is the case. Those cows are packed and can barely move. Ours were roaming the farms and had lots of space to stretch out.

    Dairy cows create these pockets of methane from being packed in the same space. They float around like clouds. It's so sick.

    Probably dairy vs beef cattle. You don't let the dairy cows roam much. Keep them hooked up to the milking machines.

    Found it: I had let her out to go to the bathroom and apparently a stray cat restrained her. Sorry for it being blurry I took out from a window on an old phone heh.
