Could cow farts, in the right quantity and environment, actually blow up a barn? We've all wondered this over the years, and the answer is ... apparently so!

Talk about blowing the roof off this place. A static charge triggered an explosion of methane gas inside of a barn in Rasdorf, Germany earlier this week.

Methane released by the cows caused the static electric charge that triggered an explosion and burst of flames that nearly took the structure's roof off.

The roof was damaged and one cow suffered light burns. No people were hurt.

Police say 90 cows are kept in the shed and it wasn't clear why quantities of methane had built up, though such a setting is prime for such an occurrence.

Bovine flatulence and belching releases large quantities of the gas.

Someone should really try to harness these emissions for some new green energy initiative. Cap-and-trade methane offsets? Think about it. It's all-natural!

Between these cows and this deer farting (below), we'd be set ...

You want fries and a vial of heroin with that? A Pittsburgh McDonald's employee was arrested for dealing the drug using Happy Meal boxes, according to reports.

People would roll up to the drive-thru window and use the code phrase, "I'd like to order a toy," at which point the accused employee would hook them up.

Customers more in the mood for hard drugs than Big Macs were allegedly instructed to order this way, then pick up their "order" at the next window.

Undercover officers from a local narcotics enforcement team made a buy from the accused employee after being tipped off by an informant, officials said.

DA spokesman Mike Manko told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that undercover officers bought 10 bags of heroin in stamp-sized packets from the location.

Another 50 bags were found on the employee's person after making the buy.

Pope Francis has achieved a new milestone, joining generations of influential figures in the worlds of politics, pop culture and life who have covered Rolling Stone.

The 266th and current of the Roman Catholic Church, who cracks a smile and waves to the camera in the cover photo, has become a rock star of sorts.

Perhaps it's not surprising that he's the first pontiff to be treated as such ...

The cover story? An appropriately titled homage to Bob Dylan's classic song, and Francis' new reign, "Pope Francis: The Times They Are A-Changin.'"

The article offers readers a peek "inside the Pope's gentle revolution."

"Since his election last March, Francis has consistently confounded expectations with the simplest of gestures," writer Mark Binelli explains of the 77-year-old.

Whether he's paying his own bills, kissing disfigured strangers, joking at his own expense or spreading a message of inclusion, Francis has won wide acclaim.

It's not just Rolling Stone. Pope Francis is Time's Person of the Year for 2013, and was also given such an honor by The Advocate for his views on gays.

Check out lots more head-turning Rolling Stone covers below ...

Look, drunk college kids. It's totally freezing out.

Some of us may be able to sit inside and upload Kim Kardashian pictures everyday or scour the Internet for the sexiest shots of Kate Upton nude.

But others, such as The Weather Channel's Jim Cantore, are forced to stand outside in the rain and wind and sub-zero temperatures in order to make a living.

So can you please give these hard-working weathermen a break.

For your own sake, even, considering you may end up with a knee to the crotch if you attempt a winter weather videobomb similar to the idiot below.

Watch Cantore quickly dispatch his unwanted guest as you'd expect Cantore to do, then toggle through other memorable moments in recent news history:

Brazilians are calling this graphic viral video of a five-year-old child getting run over by a car - only to emerge unharmed - nothing short of "a miracle."

Last week, 5-year-old Jao Pedro Nascimento was walking home from school with his grandmother Vilma, 56, in Brazil, when the unthinkable happened.

A passing Honda Fit hit another car before clipping a parked Volkswagen, which sent the VW careening onto the sidewalk and into the pair's path:

As shown by CCTV cameras, the whole scene happened too fast for the Nascimentos to avoid the car, which didn't just hit them, but ran over them both.

They survived, however, and didn't require major medical attention to do so. Amazingly, the boy and his grandmother suffered only minor injuries.

The "miracle" happened when Jao Pedro sprung up as if nothing even happened, looking around for help for Vilma as he realized what he experienced.

His grandmother was hospitalized but discharged the next day.

"I feel as if we've been born again," Vilma Nascimento said.

Based on the video above ... we can see her point.

Lego enthusiasts across the nation, unite! Porn star Christy Mack took to Twitter with an idea that will make sure you put your building skills to good use:

She's offering oral sex to the person who builds the best creation.

Seriously. Her exact words: "Whoever builds me the best Lego creation to put in my house gets a blow job." Sounds like an unbeatable offer, right?

Maybe, maybe not. Regardless of whether you've heard of Christy Mack, or find her attractive, the idea of a blow job from a porn star will appeal to some.

However, building a Lego creation worthy of winning the prize?

Unlike the winner of this contest ... the creation itself is not going to come easy. You're gonna have to invest serious time and possibly money here.

All for something that's going to last about as long as Sean Lowe when he finally got Catherine Giudici into bed Sunday night. Talk about ephemeral.

Federal agents have arrested Charlie Shrem, CEO of Bitcoin exchange BitInstant, for money laundering in connection with online drug exchange Silk Road.

The U.S. attorney's office said Shrem helped someone he hadn't met in person, Robert Faiella, sell more than $1 million worth of bitcoins to Silk Road customers.

Shrem was arrested at JFK Airport Sunday. Faiella, his 52-year-old partner, allegedly ran an underground Bitcoin exchange using the alias BTCKing.

He was arrested at his home in Cape Coral, Fla. Both are charged with conspiracy to launder money and operating an unlicensed money transmitting business.

Additionally, Shrem faces a charge for not tipping off the government.

Shrem, 24, is a major player in the Bitcoin world. The BitInstant exchange, based in New York City, lets people buy bitcoins locally at more than 700,000 locations.

Garth Callaghan, a father diagnosed with cancer three times, is planning for the future when it comes to offering advice he may not always be able to deliver in person.

Ever since his daughter Emma was a little girl, her father would leave notes for her in her lunchbox. What started as a sweet memento became their tradition.

Now, with a slim chance of surviving the next five years, Callaghan, 44, wants to make sure that if tragedy strikes, she has one for every day of high school.

On a mission to "Pack. Write. Connect," Garth is writing 826 notes on napkins, quoting the Bible, Eleanor Roosevelt, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and even Yoda.

They're great. See some of his best selections in the gallery below ...

The Miracle
This note Garth Callaghan left for his daughter as part of his Napkin Notes series is one of the most special.

Callaghan catalogs the notes on the blog Because I Said I Would, as well as on a Facebook page, Twitter handle and his website, NapkinNotesDad (dot) com.

Some of the most touching notes come from him personally.

"Dear Emma," he wrote on one of the most moving Napkin Notes, "Sometimes when I need a miracle I look into your eyes and realize I've already created one."

My goodness, did it just get dusty in here.

In response to Garage Magazine's infamous "black woman" chair photo, a gay artist from Russia has created a flipped the script in even more NSFW fashion.

Censored Chair Pic

The Russian editor-in-chief of Garage, Dasha Zhukova, came under fire for a wildly racist editorial photo showing herself sitting on a "black woman" chair.

At least that's what it looked like. The piece of furniture was made to look like a black woman with a belt around her waist and thighs and her legs up in the air.

Zhukova did apologize for the "regrettable" choice of art, but also defended designer Bjarne Melgaard's intent was a "commentary on gender and racial politics."

Some did not find the apology sufficient, however.

Alexander Kargaltsev, a gay NYC-based photographer and gay activist, decided to stage his own response to the "outrageous and tasteless" portrait.

The image of a naked black man seated on a naked white man, whose legs are folded up to create a "chair," is even crazier than the original, which was his point.

See the uncensored image after the jump ...

This video of a guy acting like a big shot in his Benz and honking at an old lady crossing the street is really upsetting ... until you see how she responds to it.

Slowly crossing the street as the elderly often do, the poor woman gets honked at by some inconsiderate douche who's apparently too important to wait 10 seconds.

Rather than merely ignore his rudeness, however, she does something rather unexpected and hilarious that leaves the driver embarrassed and regretful.

At least one would think he is. You gotta see this ...

Behold, the power of old people, using their super refined (albeit understated) powers for the greater good, putting wannabe big shots in their proper place.

Owned.
