Car with Wood-Burning Stove

Getting into a freezing cold car in the dead of winter is never a fun thing, especially if you live somewhere with lots of snow and ice. Swiss “innovator” Pascal Prokop decided his old Volvo 240’s heater wasn’t quite doing the job, so he installed a real wood-burning stove in place of the passenger’s seat.

Not only does it keep him warm, he can also make s’mores while he drives!


Man Dies In Spitting Contest Plunge

I couldn’t believe it either.

A SWISS man died when he fell from a hotel balcony during a spitting match with a friend.

I can’t even estimate the odds of something like this happening.

The 29-year-old man took a run-up from inside the room so he could spit further, but lost his balance and plummeted 6.4m to the street below.

The thing that really sucks is that it’s hard to feel bad for him. What is someone supposed to say when they’re told a guy died in a spitting contest?
