The first thing I do after logging on to TBHP site is to rush to this site and burst out laughing aloud. My staff for the last two days are thinking that their Boss has gone looney and needs help. Because what they see from the glass window is the sight of a middle-aged man, happily married, who was talking sense a few days ago is, uncontrollably laughing and crying (tears flowing) at the same time.

In the midst of a serious discussion he gazes at his terminal and bursts out laughing...

Now, Ramky I mentioned this methane thing in my post #:8... This 'sticking of the probe' was the killer...Oh God...

MODS: Please close this thread. I can't take it any more, lest my staff bundle me to an asylum.

  • CO2 has grown by 31% while Metehane has grown by 150%, metehane lasts longer and creates more damage to atmosphere!!!! (Portsmouth University research data)
Wonder if a catylic converter would work on a cow / bull?
  • Cows in the country side on natural food produce far less methane than ones on city, country cows also produce more dung!!!!!!!!
Food for lots of thought...... what say you ppl?

I was about to say the same. My staff also thinks the same and now I am wondering what all they must be thinking . This thread is Certainly Insane.

Talking Bird Droppings or Cow Dung?

Not sure of Cowdung, but Bird Droppings on car paint are known to be bad. This is because they can be mildly acidic and damage the paint/surface.

Lightbulb Back to the "Technical Stuff" section ?

There is so much technical info provided by ramkya1 in this thread, that I think it warrants moving back to the "Technical Stuff" section . This is getting to be more than just a street experience !!! In fact, it is taking us all on the road to enlightenment (ok, ok, i know ...watch out for the dung on that road too !).

You can use " Surf " to clean the dung off. After you are done cleaning, dung "dungthe reh jaaoge".

@ Condor: "A herd of 200 cows can produce roughly the same amount of methane as a car that's traveled 100,000 miles."

Source:
Belching Cows Global Warming - Mahalo

"Dr Andy Thorpe, an economist at the University of Portsmouth, explained that 200 cows burp the annual equivalent amount of methane to the energy produced by a family car being driven 111,850 miles.. "

Source:
Emissions from burping cows 'higher than family car' - Climate Change, Environment - The Independent

Though these report major emissions through the mouth, the reverse is also true for bovines as shared by my Vet colleaague; that's one act we need to watch out for when treversing the hind-side with a spotlessless dress


@Glifford: Bird droppings release amonia which is very corrosive.

Would like to see some proof for the above two points!
Instead of burning the dung, why not we create a "crying club" similar to "laughter club" and increase our visions!

Do I need to water clean the underbody? Is dung harmful? I had had a cleaning job done last weekend and dont want to go through the experience again if avoidable. [/quote]

Congrats bro! U saved a fortune on teflon coating which is nothing in comparison to cow dung coating

"What an Idea". You just can't get away from the Dung this thread has discovered.........

You would need stimulation to cry, for tears to come out? What better material than to just scrap the bottom, take it out and burn it.........

That's one thing I have not found the need to be careful about .. the bovines have always been very well behaved, AFAI-Have-Seen.

I'd be very wary of their hind-legs, though.

I guess theory and practice does differ and geography does play an important part in modulating behavior. Or is it grooming from the childhood....... calfhood?????

So right and MAN the hind-legs........ can they kick!! Remember the time I was down for 3 days when I got a kick from a calf on my thigh, fortunate it was 6" off target ....... shudder... shudder !!!!!!

Theory & practice may differ. In this case, what you had mentioned is the theory part. What I said was based on my (practical) experience.

I have found these animals to be inherently well behaved, and sensible. Never found the need to crack a whip at them.

@d_himan: You can get shampoo made out of car dung from Kanpur. You can use that dung shampoo to wash your car. It should help.

@MODS: I think I have given you enough ammunition to close this thread now. Please listen for sanity sake. It's literally a 'dung-al' out here.
