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.

(snip)

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."

8. It works better if you warm it up first.

11. No, no!
You've got to HEAT the beer first, thus necessitating the drinking and the urinating. :)

12. how much snow could he really melt with piss?
he couldn't just dig his way out?

i'd be surprised if his pissing would melt more than a shovelful or two of snow.

stupid story.

13. Here in Iowa
The Highway Patrol would then proceed to arrest him for either operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated or public intoxication...probably indecent exposure as well :crazy:
