Bricks have been such an important building material all over the world for thousands and thousands of years because it’s pretty easy to make from things like dirt, that most people have nearby. A new technique uses cow’s blood to make the bricks, because cow’s blood is also a common resource around the world, often in places where the dirt is unsuitable for brick-making.
When you’ve got a large herd of cows that died frozen into place, how do you get rid of them? Explosives usually do the trick. After trying other options, the US Forest Service is now planning on possibly using explosives to move a bunch of frozen cows that died after getting stuck inside a cabin at 3,350 metres in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains.
