    Using Both Your Man Tool And Your Brain. [Temp 2]

    This is too cool of a story to pass up sharing.

    http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_1261997.html?menu

    Man peed way out of avalanche

    A Slovak man trapped in his car under an avalanche freed himself by drinking 60 bottles of beer and urinating on the snow to melt it.

    Rescue teams found Richard Kral drunk and staggering along a mountain path four days after his Audi car was buried in the Slovak Tatra mountains.

    He told them that after the avalanche, he had opened his car window and tried to dig his way out.

    But as he dug with his hands, he realised the snow would fill his car before he managed to break through.

    He had 60 half-litre bottles of beer in his car as he was going on holiday, and after cracking one open to think about the problem he realised he could urinate on the snow to melt it, local media reported.

    He said: "I was scooping the snow from above me and packing it down below the window, and then I peed on it to melt it. It was hard and now my kidneys and liver hurt. But I'm glad the beer I took on holiday turned out to be useful and I managed to get out of there."

    Parts of Europe have this week been hit by the heaviest snowfalls since 1941, with some places registering more than ten feet of snow in 24 hours.
    This is the kind of story that makes me proud to be a man. :arr:

    Wait...did he put the snow in the car and then peed on it?!? If so, I'd hate to be the one cleaning that car. Better hope the avalanche totaled it.

    That is, indeed, a clever man. Of course, when he ran out of beer there could be :fap:

    And this is why I always travel with lots of beer in my vehicle because I never know when I might be buried by an avalanche here in Florida. At least that's what I told the officer.

    Talk about RUGGED!! Peeing your way out of an avalanche has to count! :rugged: :cheers: :drunk:

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Or he could and then have a popcicle treat to go with it

    That is so wrong... but yet it seems right. I just feel sorry for him after the hang over kicked in...
    The most foolish thing one can do this fall is to vote for Clinton or Trump. Wake up, get out of the matrix, and send a message to the political establishment that you won't play their game.

    Oh, that's how he used his man tool. I was going to say, no, you can't use your tool and your brain at the same time because there isn't enough blood to go around.

    Lucky guy... But I don't think he could have been burried too deep....
    And I'm guessing he already had some beers on him when he had the idea.... it's sounds like a dumb thing gone well.... otherwiser we'd have a darwin award.
    The darwin award would have probably been: Man freezes to death after trying to dig himself out of an avalanche by humping the snow. :P :fap:
