Local source.


Someone thinks they spotted a UFO, government calls it swamp gas.

Some people think someone passed gas on an airplane, airline declares mechanical problem.

wut?  I think I'd prefer the gas over plane could break down during flight.

On a serious note, do airplanes have air exchange system, to refreshen the air in the pressurized cab?  It would seem to me that it would be very possible to do such a thing.  I get the airlines don't care about most of their passengers, but to improve first class, it may be worth it.

Lighting farts was pretty much a standard evening activity at the Teen Club on base when I was growing up. The Teen Club was just a hang-out on base. Pool tables, dance floor, games, etc. It was a way to keep all of us destructive little base-brat shiats all in one place at night instead of destroying the base... It was just easier for the MPs.

We had one interior doorway that was unofficially dubbed "The Flame Frame".  Whenever anyone felt a winner coming on they would lay on the floor on their back, legs in the air on either side of the door frame. Whoever volunteered as the "firemaster" would position him/herself and await the signal from the flatulator, whereupon they would light the bic and, with a crowd gathered, would make some awesome little rectal flamethrowers.

It was all fun and games until the night Barney Allen lit one that arched upwards and caught BOTH of his frayed jeans pant-cuffs on fire. We put him out with multiple bottles of Pop-Shoppe pop (Creme Soda I think). He ended up with 2nd degree burns around his ankles. Best. Night. Evar! (That would have been in 1973 or so. I'll bet they're still talking about it in Summerside...)

garandman1a: Mztlplx: Now, I once cleared out the back of a 24' box truck after a week-long whiskey and grilled meat bender...

An entire airplane?  I'm impressed

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.


Caused a company meeting to be relocated outside..  10 seconds to clear the room...  running was involved.

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?


good point

They do. The engines suck air into the cabin. I don't know much more detail than that though. There's probably someone who can explain it better. Or google.

Pressurization systems constantly pump fresh, outside air into the fuselage. To control the interior pressure, and allow old, stinky air to exit, there is a motorized door called an outflow valvelocated near the tail of the aircraft. It's about the size of a briefcase and located on the side or bottom of the fuselage. Larger aircraft often have two outflow valves. The valves are automatically controlled by the aircraft's pressurization system. If higher pressure is needed inside the cabin, the door closes. To reduce cabin pressure, the door slowly opens, allowing more air to escape. It's one of the simplest systems on an aircraft.

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."


The only gas is in the company board meetings.

He must have been the farter, seeing his quick denial.


He did it only because there was more room outside than inside.

Swiss Colony: 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.

I had a cat that loved my farts. She'd sit on my lap while I would watch TV. If I guffed she'd drink it in.


I guess dogs win the which one is smarter thing.

burncheese: So why is it still an evacuation? They just pulled up to the gate and were all going to exit the plane anyway.


I'm not sure about you, but usually farts precede an evacuation in my bathroom.  In more ways than one.  First my own evacuation of my bowels, second, my rabbit learned quickly that a fart was the warning siren and would quickly leave the bathroom upon hearing one.

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.


Ok numbnuts... if you read the URL, you will notice this: "http://fox5sandiego.com/2017/07/16/person-passes-gas-on-american-air​li​nes-plane-forces-all-passengers-off-at-nc-airport/ "
The original headline was "Person Passes Gas on American Airlines Plane, Forces all Passengers Off at NC Airport".  The news agency that this was linked from updated their headline after the airline denied it.

On an unrelated side note... can we stop using the term "Fake News" unless we are making fun of Trump and his followers... maybe Fark can change "Fake News" like they do when you type fark...

Airlines need to invent a fart detector so they can begin issuing fines to people who fart. I imagine something like $500 per fart ought to do the trick. Then distribute to the affected passengers in the area.

/ FFS people - hold it in and use the bathroom like every other decent person

Can't do that with "sneak" farts...  if you hold them in, you get sharts.

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

Bermuda59: Taco Bell will now be banned from all airports


The BA lounge in Heathrow was serving up a chicken curry. Tasty, but seemed pretty dangerous for a bunch of people about to get into a metal tube for 14 hours.
 
2017-07-18 08:55:00 AM  

thesharkman: I was on a bus once and I couldn't hold it in any longer and let it go, it was silent. It smelled and in front of me was a man and his toddler daughter. About a minute later he took her to the bathroom I assume the change her diaper.


One of the hazards of my job. If I don't cop to it when I fart, the nurses will start looking for the patient that crapped, often dragging me along with them.
 
2017-07-18 08:56:57 AM  

Old_Chief_Scott: 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.


Epic!
