Shoot that dirty mountain right in the face

Remember how when you were six years old, building a snowman was one of the most rewarding activities you could think off during the cold winter months? Of course, by the time you reach puberty, you find out how much more fun it is to destroy rather than to create said snowmen. Seeing it’s creators cry is just a small bonus.

While beating up snowmen in your neighborhood might make you look cool when you’re fourteen years old, there comes a time in a young man’s life when he has to move on to bigger and better things to make the same manly impact to his peers. That said, we can now move on to the good stuff: Imagine waking up in the morning, taking a shower, driving to work and setting up your Russian Artillery weaponry before you pull the trigger to shoot at mountains with only one specific goal: forced avalanches.

In North Ossetia, Russia, this is exactly what they’re doing in Spring to counter the problem of sudden avalanches caused by thawing snow. Instead of waiting for the avalanches, these Igors, Ivans and Sergeis decided to get the biggest weapon around to simply shoot the problem where it hurts. Wanting to share their happiest moments with the world, they made a video for all to see:

Sure, I know you’re probably thinking there’s no way this is more fun than being a pro athlete, an entrepeneur, an astronaut or any other supposedly cool way to make a living, but you’re wrong, and you know it. Those career paths take time, dedication and practice. Time you could have been spending shooting at mountains and being happy.

Do you think I’m wrong? I double-dare you to come up with a more perfect job in the comments below!
