Farting can be bad for your health if you're a cow. A barn containing 90 dairy cows in Rasdorf, Germany, exploded yesterday due to the build up of methane gas, according to Reuters and local media, quoting police reports. / Flickr: wwarby

"A static electric charge caused the gas to explode with flashes of flames," police said. The roof was damaged and one cow was treated for burns, which seems like a lucky escape for the other 89.

It is thought that a static charge from a cow massage machine was to blame.
