MINI BELIEVE IT OR NOT –
A methane buildup resulting from the farts and burps of 90 different cows led to a gas explosion inside a barn in Rasdorf, Germany back in January 2014.
- The methane gas levels grew dangerously high before reacting to static energy from a dairy pump
- The blaze quickly spread to the roof
- Only one cow was injured, no workers were hurt
- Firefighters arrived within minutes and put out the fire
- In 2015, a plane had to make an emergency landing when 2,000 farting sheep in the cockpit caused the fire alarm to go off.
“BIONs” – short for Believe It or Not – is the word we use at Ripley’s to refer to anything that is unbelievable and worthy to become part of Ripley’s lore and collection.
