Man Gives Up Living As A Human To Be A Goat

You know how sometimes you hear a really strange story and don’t quite know what to make of it? Well brace yourselves for this cracker.


One man decided to stop living as a human for a few days, and become a goat.

Thomas Thwaites, a conceptual designer, decided to spend three days in the Alps, to see how goats live, and study their behaviour – think method acting, but method research instead.




He claimed:

My goal was to take a holiday from the pain and worry of being a self-conscious being, able to regret the past and worry about the future.

I was able to keep up for maybe a kilometre or so on this migration down the side of this kind of rocky mountain, and then they just left me in the dust.

So I spent the rest of the day trying to catch up to them and eventually I found them again, and it was quite nice, in the actual soft grassy pasture bit.

But actually heading down the mountain was petrifying. Because if I fell I didn’t have any hands to stop me from hitting a rock.


Now while it’s probably a good job that he’s not decided to live as a goat full time, it’s still a pretty interesting if wacky idea.
