I read that as rice being the only food that doesn't make you fat. I was about to boil a pound of it.

The average volume of farts daily is half a liter.

Mine have been measured up to 95dB.

1. The average person farts about 14 times a day

Ok, I'm above average.

4. About 1% of the volume of flatus is composed of odorant gases

I'm really above average.

5. Women fart as much as men

but honestly men enjoy it more

In ancient Japan, public contests were held to see who could fart the loudest and longest!

In a previous incarnation I won several of these contests.

Half a liter, or three TFers.

Farts tend to burn with a blue or yellow flame.

I light my farts... FOR SCIENCE!

Reading that article was a gas.
 
2013-06-02 03:57:45 AM  
I bet brown rice makes a little gas.

Also good for when you're in the mood for 2000 of something.

I had a friend in college who had a theory that rice caused slanted eyes.....

All right, I lol'd at that one.

5. Women fart as much as men:

I'm female, but I don't have many hang ups when it comes to bodily functions. Plus, my family has enough of a redneck streak that I can belch with the best and fart vociferously enough to hold my own in a Blazing Saddles re-enactment. That said, E(mbarrassing)SS:

My fiancé decided to share a story in front of some of our closest friends. Remember what the article said about your intestines being a freeway at 2am when it comes to gas? Yeah, well, apparently I was asleep one night (don't remember a thing), and he decided to be sweet and cover me with a blanket. I was facing away from him as he climbed up the ladder to what at the time was our bunk bed. When he leaned in to throw the blanket over me, well. . . my rear end had a present waiting. He didn't say it smelled, just shocking and loud. I must've turned about three shades of red by the time he was done with the story. I also had that scene from Good Will Hunting flash through my mind (a true story too, so at least if I got embarrassed about my nighttime flatulence by my husband-to-be, I'm in good company).

/seriously, guys, it's okay if we toot our own horns, but don't do it for us
//our friends rock. After all was said and done, one of the friends let a good one rip. Couldn't speak we were laughing so hard for a bit.
///Also, Mythbusters made farts cool

Apparently I did a similar thing to my girlfriends, only on a regular basis.  I'm also a sleep snuggler, to the point where I've been described as "deathgripping" people.  One morning she decided to wake me up sweetly, so she rolled over and hugged and nuzzled me from the side.  Apparently I grabbed her arm, deathrgripped it, then rolled over so that my ass was against her front, trapping her in that position.  What happened next she could only describe by saying "there was a warm blast of air on my vagina".

I have apologized to that woman profusely for said act in the years since our breakup.

Rice is the only food that does not make you fart
rice is the only starch that does not cause any gas.



Food is a lot bigger category than starch.  Somehow I still don't believe it.

/I haven't ever believed one of these lists entirely

I smell bullshiat.

The quote in the "article"

Yes, rice is the only starch that does not cause any gas.

is copypasted almost verbatim from wikipedia:

Most starches, including potatoes, corn, noodles, and wheat, produce gas as they are broken down in the large intestine. Rice is the only starch that does not cause gas.

The wikipedia references this as the source of the claim: http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddiseases/pubs/gas/index.aspx

Of course, this being Wikipedia, the source does not contain the claim.

I.e. this is pure methane.

Rice doesn't cause farts because the arsenic kills methanogenic bacteria.

Scientists in Switzerland announced today that they have been able to make mice fart by holding them upside down and tapping them on the stomach with a pencil.

No wonder I don't like rice

Shouldn't scientists be working on a cure for cancer or something?  How To Make Mice Fart is high-school science fair type work.

I don't like farting when other people are around.  Heck, I usually have to put some effort into it just to fart when nobody is around.  I do not know why I have a hangup about farts.  I also hate it immensely when people fart around me.  And I especially hate the urinal farters.  I mean, c'mon, if you're taking a shiat, totally understandable.  But if you're standing next to me & peeing, is it really that difficult to hold your poots?  Ugh.

is a wet fart classified as a fart or diarrhea?

If it doesn't make you fart you're not cooking it right.

Since farting is something that we are all familiar with, we might as well learn a few fascinating facts about it.

That's all?  I fart two or three times an hour.. sometimes more.
