Anthropologist Kirsten Bell should learn what penultimate means before misusing it in her academic papers.

/Not usually so pedantic, but it's one of the best words in the language and its being destroyed by idiots.

scottydoesntknow: mcmnky: scottydoesntknow: I have a confession. I don't know what happened, but about 5 years ago I lost the ability to produce smelly farts. It just went away. Whether they're wall-shaking or completely silent, there is no odor. As a guy, it's kind of emasculating.

Um...you just lost your sense of smell.

My fiance can't smell it. Neither can any of my friends.



Vegetarian farts don't smell as bad because there is no meat in the gut to putrify.  i noticed the more meat i eat, the more stink i get.

and beans only make me fart bad initially.  after awhile,if i eat beans on a regular bases i guess the fiber cleans the meat out of me and the bad smelling farts stop.  kewl.

ok, no gay jokes now.  thank you.

I wonder what kind of crop-dusting the mail-room staff must endure in those old office buildings with pneumatic tubes.
Imagine having your fart sucked down twenty floors with mechanical assistance? Heaven, man!

So does smoking.

Yet one is considered socially acceptable in public spaces, and the other is not.

Yeah, that's what my grandfather and father thought, too. You're just losing your sense of smell after years of your own B.O. and living like a bachelor.
