I am staring at them… really hard.
these poor goats don’t look happy to me – they look like they have fleas. or epilepsy.
That’s baby goats. I know it’s weird but they just cant stand still. Must… climb… and jump…!
Is it similar to human babies crawling, pulling themselves up, etc.? In other words, they’re figuring out how to use their limbs?
I concur, they look uncomfortable.
Maybe fainting goats that don’t quite go all the way? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fainting_goat
It wasn’t showing up for me, either. Link here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=6fF0pIGqors
Are you getting a white space where there should be a video?
Yeah, I don’t think it’s you guys, though. The iframe itself is empty but for #document, the HTML tag, and an empty head and body. If you follow the src directly for the iframe, you get the player, but it won’t load the video.
I am. Same for the Cronkite video.
Firefox v18.0.2, upgraded via Ubuntu Upgrade Manager a few hours ago.
Must have been a YouTube glitch. Embeds weren’t working on another site, but they’re back now.
7 minutes later and they’re working for me, too.
I get a &start=113 at the end of the URL, which makes the video start about half a second from the end. Line 368 of the source.
I’m not sure they’re particularly happy, but baby goats are among the cutest creatures on the planet.
At Maker Faire a few years ago there was a pen with a bunch of baby goats playing King of the Hill on a pile of haybales. I’m still not sure what that had to do with Makering but I may have spent more time there than any other single exhibit.
Back in the good old days when dancing meant exploding…

The awful truth is that these goats’ behavior is really due to their diet of Frijoles saltarines.
Well, if the Buddhists and Hindus have it right they could be little reincarnated individuals expressing their discontent at the shape of their new bodies. I can just picture their thought balloons:
“What the fuck, am I hungover? Gah!”
“What the fuck is this place! Agh!”
Hop hop hop kick
“Where is my lawyer!?
headbutt kick kick
It sucks to have an itch that you just can’t scratch.
This seems really similar to the behavior of happy rabbits, which we annoying bunny owners often call “binkys”.
Granted, the kid-version of it shown here is a little less energetic than grown rabbits, but I do wonder if there’s a biological connection.
Yeah, that was one of my first thoughts as well – “so goats binky too, eh?”. Our rabbits have done some crazy ones, binkies from the floor to the couch or floor to the table, etc. It’s always funny when they end up somewhere on a different level than where they started, there seems to be an element of “well how the hell did I get up here?”.
