When Being Human Got His Goat, This Designer Became One



"On eating like a goat

Obviously, goats eat grass. And any human can eat grass, but the trouble is we can't digest it. So I decided I would have to make myself like an artificial rumen. And the rumen is the kind of ... bit of a grazing animal that contains all this weird bacteria which actually lets these animals break down the tough fibers in grass and digest them. ... And I kind of thought maybe I could infect my own gut with the bacteria from a goat's rumen — that turned out to be a bit of a non-starter."
