Pocket Farming

Sometimes bigger isn't better. Concerned about the quality of the milk in supermarkets? Just raise your own cattle herd.

Cuban Rancher Raul Hernandez has bred a herd of miniature cows that are a little over 3 feet tall. Despite their small size, they are able to provide about a gallon of milk per day if fed a diet of grass and weeds.

This is taking the Stonyfield farms "have a cow" concept to new extremes!

The Springfield Project

No, not the long irrelevant BigStep (though give yourself some points if you actually remember what the original "stealth" company actually does).

Instead, it is a detailed map of the fictional burg of Springfield, home of the Simpsons. Everyone who's ever wanted to know that Herman's Military Antiques is next to Snippy Longstocking's Newsstand, eat your heart out!
