Colours of life


Odd day of the week. Only reason why you wake up is your stomach. The clock is near the right angle. I drag myself out of the bed. I grab a rubbery sort of thing and butter all my fingers. I crawl the long way back to my room and push myself under the bedsheet. There is a pillar in the middle. I stare into it. There is a breeze and the top pages of the pillar flutter. A finger comes brandishing with the wind. The binary numbers are dancing around it. The fingers, the numbers and the pillar are surrounded by a ring. The ring is made up of the letters ‘e’,’n’,’g’,’i’,’n’,’e’,’e’,’r’. There is a huge glass beaker filled with crabs. One is trying with all its might to climb out. Another is pulling it down. There is fox in the well. A goat jumps in. The fox climbs on it and gets out. A snake slithers from behind and strikes with a vicious hiss. There is pyramid. I’m standing somewhere midway. The people at the top look below and laugh their heads off. There is a great thunder in the background. I push myself out of the cosyness and pull the latch. There is a downpour on me. Someone’s thrusting coloured powder into my hand. I’m startled and I throw it around. Everyone scream with joy and cry ‘Happy holi’.

    The exploding cow is the alleged practice of fart lighting with cattle. As a cow produces about 280 liters of methane-rich flatulence each day some people believe that by using a tube inserted into a cow’s anus, one can ignite the gas and cause the cow to explode.

    Methane (CH4) and hydrogen (H2) are the main flammable ingredients of bovine intestinal gas. The oxidation of one part of methane requires two parts of oxygen. In contrast, burning hydrogen requires much less oxygen:

    * CH4 + 2O2 → CO2 + 2H2O
    * 2H2 + O2 → 2H2O

    Some people claim gas within a cow’s intestines, once ignited, could cause a huge explosion. This is mostly untrue. Methane in an animal’s intestines is less likely to burn due to oxygen only being available from the ingestion of air. However, when it is released to the air, it becomes flammable. There is an urban legend of a farmer who one day decided to ignite his cows’ gaseous anal expulsions. Unfortunately, one of his cows produced such a high quantity of methane that the flame shot back up into the cow and caused it to explode. The farmer, as a result of this, was killed when a flying femur bone hit his head at over 80mph.

    Stephen Pile’s Book of Heroic Failures presents a case study of a veterinary mishap of this fashion, where the results were incendiary but not explosive. The cow survived without injury.

    In the computer game Red Alert 2 the Crazy Ivan unit can attach timed explosive charges to various objects in the landscape, including hapless cows, which can then be commanded into suicide attacks.

    La vache éclatante est la pratique alléguée de l’éclairage de fart avec des bétail. Car une vache produit environ 280 litres de flatulence riche en méthane chaque jour certains croient qu’en utilisant un tube inséré dans l’anus d’une vache, on peut mettre à feu le gaz et faire éclater la vache. Le méthane (CH4) et l’hydrogène (H2) sont les ingrédients inflammables principaux du gaz intestinal de bovin. L’oxydation d’une part de méthane exige deux parts de l’oxygène. En revanche, l’hydrogène brûlant exige beaucoup moins d’oxygène:
    * CH4 + Ò2?
    CO2 + 2HÒ * 2H2 + O2? 2HÒ

    gaz de réclamation de certains dans les intestins d’une vache, une fois que mis à feu, a pu causer une explosion énorme. C’est la plupart du temps faux. Le méthane dans des intestins d’un animal est moins pour brûler en raison de l’oxygène étant seulement fourni par l’ingestion d’air. Cependant, quand il est libéré à l’air, il devient inflammable. Il y a un urban legend d’un fermier qu’un jour a décidé de mettre à feu les expulsions anales gazeuses de ses vaches. Malheureusement, un de ses vaches a produit une quantité si élevée de méthane que la flamme a tiré le support dans la vache et l’a fait éclater. Le fermier, en raison de ceci, a été tué quand un os de fémur de vol a frappé sa tête à 80mph fini. Le livre de la pile de Stephen des échecs héroïques présente une étude de cas d’un malheur vétérinaire de cette mode, où les résultats étaient incendiaires mais non explosifs. La vache a survécu sans dommages. Dans l’alerte rouge 2 de jeu d’ordinateur l’unité folle d’Ivan peut attacher les frais explosifs synchronisés à de divers objets dans le paysage, y compris les vaches malchanceuses, qui peuvent alors être commandées dans des attaques de suicide.
