No *FAAAAAAAARPPP-P-P-P-P!!!* kidding.

This is not news to me.

Yeah, that was me last week after three consecutive Mexican meals.

Sounds like pretty much every day for me.

You win again, Taco Bell.

They've reached Great War technologies in my gut. The gassings are quite lethal.

Oh, I'm afraid the large intestine will be quite operational by the time your foods arrive.

When it's unclear from the submitter's description what the article is about, I glance over the URL in my status bar to decide if it's worth clicking. Sometimes you can get the article's title from it, but in this case the only word in there is "releases". Heh.

No worries subby. I've got a plug of real poop in place that'll hold all of that in until lunchtime or so. The current p.s.i. is at a fairly manageable level.

/not a game for novices

I'm well aware. Damnit Chipotle!

For as long as anyone can remember, this war has been at the level of "all-out nuclear exchange between superpowers".

Weird. I used to get stabbing pain in my gut and then my abdomen would rapidly expand with gas until I was incapacitated for the rest of the day. I looked like I was pregnant and would be in excruciating pain. Happened once on a date and it rather ruined the mood.

Hasn't happened in awhile now. I keep anti-gas meds nearby at all time. I asked my doctor about it and he said I must be swallowing air (?). That's when I realized he's an idiot and I stopped seeing him.

I've always figured it must have something to do with my internal bacterial flora. I'm just glad they've declared a cease-fre.

Organism has a built in mechanism for releasing viruses to infect the competition?
