Apparently there just aren't enough
whip-cream canisters in New Zealand to satisfy the
N2O cravings of the countries bored teenagers and junkie dentists so
scientists there have been forced to seek out a new source
of laughing gas-- cow dung!
OK, so I'm making shit up about hordes of bored teens and strung-out dentists,
but they really are investigating how much laughing gas is given off by cow
dung. And they're using a big orange balloon to do it-- though I have no idea
what that is important enough to be part of the headline. But anyway, this
super-hightech orange balloon is all chock full of science that will one day
allow us to harness this untapped natural resource and use it for the forces of
good! Or something, they don't actually say why they're doing this. I
guess the words "laughing gas" "cow dung" and "big orange balloon" were enough
information for one article.
I just hope this information doesn't fall into the wrong hands-- I have this
horrible image of people walking around huffing plastic bags of dung trying to
get the giggles...
