Our final conclusion? Don't fart naked near food.

That's how I got a lifetime ban from Golden Corral.

You know how doctors wear masks over their faces to prevent spreading germs? They have a thing like that for butts called PANTS.

You're obviously watching far different porn than I am.

You get ALL the pinkeyes.

All right, it's not rocket science.

Pinkeye from the Stink Eye?

I wonder how many surgeons wear diapers, so they can keep billing during hours-long operations.

An article from 2001? I know fark loves old news but come on...

That's funny... When I was working at the hospital, one of our guys had this story about someone who supposedly got an infection from exactly that, a person passing gas in the OR. I thought it was absolute bullshiat...

"...the splatter ring around that was caused by the sheer velocity of the fart, which blew skin bacteria from the cheeks and blasted it onto the dish"

Nice descriptions. Sounds like the subject was an exceptionally gifted farter. Superman? Superfartman?

People probably don't like to think about it, but if you smell a fart, or you walk into a bathroom and you smell a recent dump, you now have a molecule that was once in someone's ass inside your own body.

I was really rooting for it to be the other way, with a proposal that all medical workers wear butt plugs at work to prevent illness.

The only one naked (hopefully) is the patient. Self-inflicted?

"Dr. Smith, I needed those butt plugs on my expense report for SAFETY. OK? For patient safety......... The riding crop on there was just an accident. I'll pay for that one, my bad."

Patient farts are considered a fire risk in the OR and protocol dictates the anus should be covered with wet gauze if openly exposed.

Umm, pretty much every breath you take has a ton of molecules that have been through some form of digestive tract.  The water you drink is probably close to 100% recycled urine.  And living in a farming area, I can tell you from the smell that a lot of your food is grown in shiat.

That's ridiculous. Even if everyone in town peed in the reservoir that collects rain water.

I didn't say human urine- animals have been pissing in the pool for hundreds of millions of years.  Everything in the biosphere has been recycled, and atoms are completely fungible

I get that....I was meaning, like, just in the last 15 seconds was in somebody's ass.

Butt if it's covered, it is not openly exposed so the gauze should be removed.

If you can think of a more cost efficient way for me to get my patients to pass out so I can perform surgery on them than deeply inhaling my ass gas, I'd like to hear it.

All the guys in my fraternity believed if someone farted on your pillow you'd get pinkeye.

But we were always hellishly drunk so what did we know?

So you're sticking with "close to 100%"?

Okie dokie.

A bacterium is much bigger than a molecule.

It might have been Mick.
Look up Mick the Master Farter by Kevin Bloody Wilson. Most definitely not safe for work.

I'm not a surgical tech, but I think there has to be a flame source nearby too. Which can be commonplace. So necessary precautions are taken to minimize ignition.

Fake news. Women don't fart. Or poop.

If you think they stop billing just because they left the operating theatre for a bit you don't know much about medical billing.

I only wish I could do science which is so cool.

"Hey what do you research"

"Of this and that. We recently did a study where I farted into a petri dish and measured the bacterial growth. But it had to be a bare ass fart, or nothing happened. Even after I ate some beans."
