Our CFO, Paul, was on vacation on a cattle ranch, during a time of fundraising. Normally vacation is vacation of course, but in this case it was necessary to have some calls now and again which required strong internet.

Over the course of many trips he learned that cattle are docile, mostly... but don't turn your back on them because they can't be outrun!
