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.

MINI BION

“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.
