DENVER It may take explosives to dislodge a group of cows that wandered into an old ranger cabin high in the Rocky Mountains, then died and froze solid when they couldnt get out.
The carcasses were discovered by two Air Force Academy cadets when they snow-shoed up to the cabin in late March. Rangers believe the animals sought shelter during a snowstorm and got stuck and werent smart enough to find their way out.

Seriously though - are they trying to get “internet famous” surely they HAVE to know of the exploding whale that others have posted about, and what about risk of falling embers sparking another fire?
These folks are brilliant - I tell you what... ;)

Wandered in? How about a freezer for alien abducted pre-mutilated cattle?

Yak yak yak...
Using a pencil you see results in a lot of dust from the graphite crumbling.
Free floating particles in space around lots of delicate equipment is a very bad thing.
Which is the why of the space pen.
Zen and the art of high explosives.
