Gassy German cows cause barn explosion

A build up of methane gas from a herd of flatulent cows has caused an explosion on a farm. The blast, caused by a concentration of gas emitted by a group of 90 cows, damaged the roof of their cow shed — leaving one of the animals injured.

You gotta watch out for those damned exploding cows.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. “Methane emitted by cows worldwide is believed to contribute to global warming.”

    Well, it would “contribute”, if those farmers would get off their lazy heinies*, and start collecting and vending the stuff! Burning naturally-produced methane in place of propane or LPG just makes good economic sense!
