Buzkashi?

The crowd was watching a game of buzkashi, a traditional Afghan sport akin to polo, where players on horseback use a headless goat carcass instead of a ball.

I cannot believe the lunacy of some cultures.  If you need something big and bulky, why can't you simply fassion something?  It makes no sense at all to slaughter a goat.

Their 3D printer was in the shop that day. Look, the normal state of human affairs for the vast majority of history didn't include a massive, world-wide oil-powered manufacturing capacity. All you had was what Nature saw fit to surround you with, that you could get at with hand tools.

So, what would they "fassion" something out of? Rocks? Dirt? A tree? A prisoner/slave?

I dunno...  Maybe a burlap sack full of sand?
If they go through all the trouble to prepare the goat, including beheading, dissembowling, cutting off it's legs up to the knee, then filling it with sand, it stands to reason they could put some effort into making the ball out of something that's not alive.

Where would the burlap come from? A goat reproduces and finds its own food. Plus you can eat the insides. You think people like these are squeamish about organ meats?

How long do you think the bag would last? Those games last for days sometimes... The goat is basically leather, you know.

Oh, and burlap comes from plants, which are alive... So you need to grow the plant, harvest it, and have enough of it, and the skills and tools to make twine out of it. You need people to check on the plants to make sure no animals eat it, etc.. You need to weave and sew the material.

Even your burlap bag presupposes a decent set of tools and knowledge and resources.

I feel like using the goat to make actual leather and a durable 'ball' would be more economical than an untreated goat carcass. I mean, I'm sure the goat is eaten and whatever, it just seems like a waste of goat torsos.

Is there a shortage of goat torsos? Are we about to hit Peak Goat Torso?

It's a bomb blowing up and creating a buzkhasi buzzkill.  The headless goat is even more headless.

look every culture is equally important, if you refuse to respect their culture, how can you possibly expect anyone to respect yours?
