    Err, the professor of a linguistics class I took, who's speciality was people learning second languages.

    Google, however, says this:

    Source

    So ultimately it's context dependent like most things are. Read the source for a more comprehensive overview of why English is considered extremely difficult.

    EDIT: In hindsight, the original post wasn't very funny. Try this.
    EDIT2: What was I thinking? Take three.

    Um, just 11 cows? That seems a bit on the low side.

    If they are measuring by the weight of meat consumed rather than the number of animals slaughtered to provide that weight of meat, I could see it being possible.

    Take a bull cow (2400lbs) and your average serving of beef being 8 oz (steaks larger, burgers smaller) and we are talking 4800 servings of beef per cow.

    If you had servings of beef 3x a week, you could conceivably meet that meat quota in 30 years.

    Considering I think that 3x a week may be a little low for some, depending on their location (Texas is all about the beef y'all), 2400lbs per cow is probably way larger than your average cow, and 30 years isn't a lifetime for most, yea that seems off.

    I guess when you take into account developing countries or even non-American countries, the average would skew that way more. I think it says more about the varied diets of different areas than anything to me.

    But y'all...meat is delicious.

    You have convinced me. I shouldn't eat animals.

    I should eat vegans instead.

    7000 of them.

    Is Vegan outreach a provider of Vegans?

    The average meat eating person... (I originally typed eat meating person, jeez) Yeah, definitely much lower. Annually, China (in 2010) consumed only 9 pounds of beef per capita, compared to the US' 85 pounds (industry statistics). Indians on average consume about 1.5 pounds a year per capita.

    If you average China and India, you get 2.6 billion people, that on average consume less than 5 pounds of beef a year, aka less than 400 pounds of beef per lifetime... that's a figure that heavily skews down the US average of around 6500 pounds a lifetime, especially given that the US only has a population of 320 million or so.

    "Probably way larger than the average cow"

    Bruh. The average meat yielding cow will barely be pushing 1,200 pounds lol. And from that the usable carcass is like 700. And the meat is another fraction of that. I mean. Twice the average steer is "way larger" so you're technically correct, but.

    Sir.
