I had a serious conversation with MDN the other day on the way to work......
"If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it...... does it make a sound?"
Well along those lines but nothing like it, over an hours travel we had composed a hypothesis and scientific experiment......
Do farts taste like they smell?
To answer this we are to conduct the following experiment ..
Under controlled conditions (in the Naafi) after several pints and bags of pork scratchings I am to release a substantial guff into his mouth, like fine wine tasting he must sample it the give his verdict, obviously he would have to wear a swimmers nose clip so as not to confuse his senses.
The result is fairly insignificant really, MDN chewing on my air biscuit however is very satisfying.
Ahhhh yes but Cait, be present at your own risk. Look here
(25 March 1993)
A terrible diet and room with no ventilation are being blamed for the death of a man killed by his own gas. There were no marks found on his body, but an autopsy revealed the presence of large amounts of methane dissolved in his blood.
His diet had consisted primarily of beans and cabbage, just the right combination of foods to produce a severe gas attack. It appears that the man died in his sleep from breathing the poisonous cloud that was hanging over his bed.
Had his windows been open, the flatulence wouldn't have been fatal, but the man was shut up in a nearly airtight bedroom. He was an obese man with an unlimited capacity for creating the deadly gas. Three rescuers became sick and one was hospitalized.
Ha! -not a chance that the Fart filter would survive my noxious Bowel emissions. Should it not be Chemically disentigrated by the Fumes of Hell it would amass inside the Airtight seals until I ended up looking like a Raghead with a suicide belt. The Danger of Death by Fartification to those in my immediate vicinity would, on a scale of 1-10 - be about 9,5 and when it finally blows the geologists would assume that the San Francisco earthquake has started. The resultant highly toxic "no go " area would cover a square mile in which I alone would sit and savour the green gases.
