    Happy Sheep Year

    Wish you all another new, progressive and health Sheep Year.

    More good work, and therefore more earnings from good work to buy and play good games, great gamers.

    This is 8:45 here, we don't stay at bed too late in New Year so that we won't be lazy all year round.

    Actually it should be Year of Goat, i.e. the one with horn. But I know goat is not a kind of animal popular in Christian world, so I said Year of Sheep.

    But it indeed is Year of Goat, and ever we Chineses who generally aren't Christian don't like goat neither, to be honest. Year of Goat generally is associated with bad luck. People avoid to give birth in Year of Goat since people being born in the years are generally underdogs, and bad things generally happen in the years. The Invasion by Eight Nations in 1900 happened to be a Year of Goat, for instance.

    Goats are cooler than sheep.

    Unless you mean goats in the "satanic horns" kind of way.

    I guess Year of the Ram would be the coolest sounding. Rams aren't as cool as tigers and dragons, but at least they sound a bit tougher than sheep.

    Actually I want to ask this for long long time: why Christians dont like goats while they mostly like sheeps?

    I heard that goats represent bad guys, while sheeps represent good guys.

    Pffffffft, goats look at you and are like... What are you doing, I will wreck you, can I eat that, haha that was a joke, I am eating that, the asking part was the joke you see? You have been looking at me too long I'm going to headbutt you, you know, with my horns.

    And sheep are all glassy eyed and stupid looking.

    TLDR: Glassy eyed obedient people prefer glassy eyed obedient animals.

    I wasn't aware that they don't like goats. I mean satan was drawn as goat like but we've always kept goats around for food and wool...

    Maybe it's just because sheep taste better.

    I was going to search for that but apparently there's too much to care about.

    Goats will eat your jacket or jeans. And have horns.
    Sheep don't do anything and look like fluffy clouds.

    I think it's more how goats and sheep are displayed in christian terminology - Indeed, the devils often have goat's hooves, whilst "The lord is my shepherd" and a lot of tales in the new testament involve shepherd and their sheep. Goats are traditionally harder to shepherd and go against the shepherd's will more easily.

    That being said, Squirrel, it's not a 'dislike' at all. It's simply iconography, and I very much doubt that even the most pious christian will be offended by goats.

    Wait so sheep and goats is all there it is? Everyone else is meant to knock door to door to "spread the word"?
