An entire plane? Even if I ate 6 pickled eggs, a double helping of broccoli, 8 ounces of cheddar, a six pack of Genessee, and a nice big bowl of chili, could I accomplish such a feat.

I once ate at one of those garlic themed restaurants. I could have easily forced a plane to land the next morning.

"Reports that an American Airlines plane at Raleigh-Durham International Airport was evacuated on Sunday after a passenger "passed gas" are untrue, the airline said in a statement."

Whoever denied it, supplied it

An airport spokesperson originally told WNCN the odor was caused by a passenger who "passed gas." An updated statement from the airport referred to the incident a "medical call" after the planed deplaned "normally."
"The medical call came in for someone affected by an odor after the plane deplaned normally," the airport official said in the statement.


Someone was paid to write that. Someone was interviewed, hired as a professional writer, and one day at work, they typed that up and hit "submit".

happydude45: Walker: Fakes news. They said that wasn't the cause.

Ross Feinstein, a spokesman for the airline, released a statement that said in part:

"We did have an aircraft from Charlotte to RDU this afternoon, that landed at 2:19 p.m. ET, and arrived the gate at 2:21 p.m. ET, that is currently out of service for an actual mechanical issue - and odor in the cabin. But It is not due to "passed gas" as mentioned."

This. The farking headline was an abject untruth according to the linked story and this was greened? Farking fark wants to be Opposing Views or Buzzfeed now. Going to shiat in a hurry.


Um.  It's not news...it's fark. Pro-tip, don't come here for hard facts based on headlines.

Airlines routinely fark people over and get away with it, but they won't own up to somebody squeezing cheese on the tarmac.

Sad!

I remember a certain TFer who, having farted, didn't fess up to the fact even after building maintenance came in and started tearing up drywall to look for the source of the odor.

I always wondered why he choose "The Spleen" as his superhero name. I don't think the spleen has anything to do with rectal gassification, does it?
 
2017-07-17 10:17:04 AM  
So why is it still an evacuation? They just pulled up to the gate and were all going to exit the plane anyway.

Jake Havechek: Technoir: CSB:  i dunno what my wife ate this weekend, but about 2 minutes before my alarm went off this morning, she dropped a gas bomb. I only noticed because our 3 cats BOLTED from the bed and out the bedroom door. Then, the stench penetrated my CPAP mask and shocked me fully awake. It was vile and horrendous.

Did it feel like a blowtorch against your leg?


I probably shouldn't be surprised that Wikipedia has a very in-depth article on "Fart Lighting".

FTFW:  "Such experiments typically occur on camping trips and in single-sex group residences, such as tree-houses, dormitories, or fraternity houses"

Fark isn't about truth and the actual news, quite the opposite.  Check out the politics tab to see how far most people are from actual reality.   Almost everybody loves a freak show and this is a good one to have fun at, not take seriously.

I'd rather smell my farts than anybody's.

Wouldn't it be awesome if we could see farts? (I am proud to admit that I've managed to manufacture one or two in my lifetime that you could probably see...)

I'm not exactly convinced. Had a coworker that was taking so protein powder crap.  His farts were frequent and could give people in the next room a headache.  In an enclosed plane I can totally believe this.  I suspect the story was changed to save a customer embarrassment as I'm sure the press started asking who farted.

Apparently that's a hoax. And the last thread I was in where somebody pointed out that it was a hoax, another guy chimed in that he was in the Air Force and worked with ultra-top-shelf IR cameras of the sort that are meant to be able to see individual nose hairs from beyond the moon. He said he and his buddies had conducted weeks and weeks of research, trying to get their farts to show up in a meaningful way, and they couldn't.

I'm not sure I'd necessarily believe it was a hoax from some random YouTube video, but I absolutely trust that this was the first and possibly the only thing a bunch of 20-something enlisted guys spent their time on when given an IR camera.

You laugh, but I used to work with a guy who would leave the office bathroom smelling like something had literally crawled up his ass and died from eating beans mixed with formaldehyde.

I honestly considered talking to him about seeing a doctor.

A fart so stupendous, that it actually broke the plane!

2017-07-17 11:16:24 AM  
My college roommate would weaponize his farts with Doritos. When we moved out, we had to throw away his lazyboy because the cushion was so infused with death. I blame him for the lack of girls coming into our room. Yep all his fault.

Best I've ever done was a NYC Subway car, not at rush hour. Not as impressive an area but considering the normal smells down there still one I'm quite proud of.

This is the word locally.  A crew member was the source of the miasma.  I think it was a flight attendant named Betty.
