Your Farts: The Facts

Farts

Farting is the act of passing intestinal gases through the anus. These can sometimes be odorless and sometimes deathly. But do you know why you pass gas? Do you know why your farts are sometimes as loud as a blow horn or as quiet as a mouse? The facts below will tell you a things or two abour something everyone does multiple times a day.

Flatulence is the production of a mixture of air and gases in the digestive tract that are by-products of the digestive process.

Average flatulence composition: 59% nitrogen, 21% hydrogen, 9% carbon dioxide, 75 methane, 3% oxygen, 1% other crap.

The average person will fart 14 times a day and produce a half a liter of fart gas per day

Farts are indeed flammable

Top Ten Farters:

1. Termites

2. Camels

3. Zebras

4. Sheep

5. Cows

6. Elephants

7. Labradors/Retrievers

8. Humans/Vegetarians

9. Humans/Non-Vegetarians

10. Gerbils



Farts can come blazing out of your ass at 7 mph

98.6 F and are 98.6 F at the time of creation

You cannot suffocate in a chamber full of your own fart

CH4 Termites produce more methane than cows and even all man made polluting machinery (but don���t release any other harmful chemicals)

Stealthy Flatulence

Most farts come from swallowed air (largely nitrogen and C02) and are relatively odorless. The bubbles from these farts are large and can produce large sounds. = pop

Bacterial fermentation and digestion processes can produce various pungent gases in other farts. The bubbles from these farts tend to be small and smelly and do not produce much sound = silent but deadly

H2S

Hydrogen Sulfide is the compound in farts that makes them stink

A person can still fart after they are dead

The nerve endings in your rectal area help distinguish the difference between farts and poopハラ_but sometimes these nerves can get confused when your poop is more fluid than usual and results in things such as mud butt and sharting

Beans do in fact make you fart more. The human body cannot digest certain polysaccharides. As these carbohydrates structures reach the lower intestine, bacteria fee don them, producing a lot of fluid.
