Did you know…..
- Fart gas is a natural by-product of digestion.
- On average, a person will fart 14 times a day, unless he/she has been eating beans. Certain polysaccharides in beans are undigestible by humans and so are consumed by gut flora instead. It’s them that produces the extra gas… not you. Doesn’t that make you feel better?
- On average, a persons’ fourteen daily farts will fill a pint sized jar.
- Farts are flammable.
- Farts can exit the body at a speed of up to 7 mph.
- If you are confined in a box, you cannot suffocate yourself with your farts. Now I’m sure you feel better!
- Certain foods do make you fart more: beans, corn, bell peppers, cauliflower, cabbage, milk, bread, eggs, beer, raisins, brussel sprouts, onions, lentils, leeks, oats, yeast, radishes, sweet potatoes, cashews, rutabagas and turnips are prime offenders.
- Farts are made up of 59% nitrogen, 21% hydrogen, 9% carbon dioxide, 7% methane, 3% oxygen and 1% other crap. If the hydrogen has excess sulfides with which to combine, the farts will stink.
- Nerve endings inside your anus allow you to distinguish between a fart and a poop.
- Generally speaking, the larger the fart, the less smelly.
- Bodies can still fart after death.
