Best science headline all week


Are you ready? Here it is:











Cow farts collected in plastic tank for global warming study
I did not make that up, go ahead and click on the link.

In other related science news, a study in Japan tells us that eating beef is "less green than driving". According to the study, "producing 2.2 pounds of beef generates as much greenhouse gas as driving a car non-stop for three hours".

What I want to know is, when will they have the numbers on bacon production?

It so rarely happens but I am actually speechless...

Methane is actually much, much more able than carbon dioxide in keeping heat in, so the test is probably important. But that doesn't mean that contraption doesn't look friggin' ridiculous.

I think Nostradamus predicted that the Earth would be destroyed by a giant cow fart.

Watch out for flaming arrows.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

To get away from the cow farts.

Just when I thought a cow could not look any more stupid...

Ewww...

How'd you like to be the guy who has the job to empty the tank. Ewww...

Anything to use those farts for good instead of evil!

Good God . . . What about the cow's art?

And truly, how about a bacon double cheesburger at ninety miles an hour?

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Bacon is fart-free.

They want to take my cigarettes, my car AND my meat away.

Fuck those hippies.

I just hope the cows don't start floating.

The day they start looking into bacon will be the day pigs fly. (sic-sorry)

Now if they can use that tank on Bossy's back to make her fly and then making pigs fly would be easy.
