Two boys walked up on a sink hole on a neighbors farm. After investigating the hole and recalling there physics class, the boys determined if they threw something heavy into the hole, counted how long before it hit bottom, they could estimate the depth of the pit. They looked around and found a big heavy piece of wood, together they tossed it into the abyss and started counting. Before the timber hit bottom, a goat came charging at them and jumped straight into the hole. The boys were shocked to see a goat commit suicide right in front of them, and stood in silent amazement. Still in shock, the boys started into town. A few minutes later they met a farmer heading in the opposite direction, the farmer said, hey boys, y'all seen my goat? The boys said, you won't believe it, but that goat committed suicide and jumped to its death. The farmer looked puzzled, then said, well that can't be my goat, I had her chained to a railroad cross tie.
