One of this weeks Weird News stories caught my fancy:
An Icelandic public TV network aired 24 hours of live sheep birthing to give the country's residents "insight into the traditional farming life." RUV, the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service, ran a live feed from a farm in Skagafjordur from noon Thursday until noon Friday to bring the lambing season to living rooms across the country.

"The sheep birthing season is an unforgettable time for those able to see the little lambs being born into this world," RUV said on its website.
Here's a question for my readers to ponder: would you rather live in a place where so little happens that lambing dominates the news, or would you go crazy with boredom?

Look at all those pregnant sheep! I started to wonder what it would be like if twenty human mothers tried to give birth at the same time in the same room, but then I shut that thought down.
