Snow & Ice Church

The snow church was constructed in commemoration of a similar church built in 1911, exactly 100 years ago. The older one was actually a sign of protest. In those days, the nearest church was in Mauth, a 90-minute hike away, which wasn’t always easy to complete. The residents of the secluded Mitterfirmiansreut village then came up with the idea to build the snow church, in the hope that it would draw attention to their plight. The winter of 1910/1911 was rich in snow, and the construction of the church began in Feb, 1911. Both men and women worked hard to place blocks of solid snow bricks, building a strong and sturdy church. The final structure was 46-ft long, 22-ft wide and 13-ft high. The first worship was held on the 28th of March, 1911.” w/ photos

Top 11 Fart Scenes

“Ah, fart scenes. There’s an art to them that many filmmakers overlook, and it’s such a shame. There’s nothing on this planet quite as naturally funny as flatuence, so it’s certainly not something we’d ever want to lose in our comedies. The trick, you see, is in the details. Who’s farting? What does it sound like? How do other characters react? Why is there farting in the first place? These things are important. Despite what we hear from the three-year old camp, just putting a fart into a movie for no reason won’t do the trick. We sniffed-out every fart in film and TV history and came up with this list of bombastic fart scenes that do it right.” w/ videos
