How much do you know about farts besides the fact that they sound and smell funny, and come out from the bum?

12 Facts About Farting You Probably Didn’t Know

People usually laugh about burping, hiccups and farting. Sometimes, even they are embarrassed and annoyed about these body functions.

Yes they sound interesting and smell weird, come out from the bum but how much do you actually know about these farts? Here are 12 facts about farting that you probably never heard about.

1. THE AVERAGE HUMAN BEING FARTS 14 TIMES A DAY.

How many times they do it in front of others will determine exactly how “human”—actually, “inhumane”—they are.

2. YOU FART ENOUGH EVERY DAY TO FILL A BALLOON.

The average human toots about 700ml of flatus daily—enough to blow up a birthday balloon!

3. THE SPEED OF FARTS.

Farts exit the anus and enter the world at a speed of 10 feet per second, or slightly less than seven miles per hour.

4. WHAT THE HELL IS THAT SMELL?

Truth be told, only 1% or less of the gas in your average, everyday, run-of-the-mill fart has any odor whatsoever. The main culprit is hydrogen sulfide, which generates those rancid “rotten egg” notes that make farts the bane of the world’s nostrils.

5. WOMEN’S FARTS SMELL WORSE THAN MEN’S.

Sure, there’s a certain breed of male idiot who thinks it’s funny to fart in front of others, and to be fair, women don’t tend to be afflicted with that special strain of sadism. But before they start getting all high and mighty, they should realize that female farts have a higher hydrogen sulfide concentration than male ones and thus, fart-for-fart, they’re smellier than dude farts.

6. A FART BY ANY OTHER NAME WOULD SMELL AS STINKY.

The word “fart” is considered a “vulgarism” and—just like farting itself—is not recommended for use in polite company. The polite noun is “flatus,” even though almost no one uses it. The word “fart” is said to have been coined in 1632 and defined as “to send forth wind from the anus.” “Fart” is derived from the Old English word “feortan,” which means “to break wind.”

7. FARTING AMONG THE ANCIENTS.

Roman Emperor Claudius declared that “all Roman citizens should be allowed to pass gas whenever necessary,” which is an ancient variant of the modern maxim, “Wherever you be, let the wind blow free.” The ancient Japanese were said to have held “farting contests” to see who could break wind the loudest and longest. The Greek physician Hippocrates decreed that “Passing gas is necessary to well-being.”

8. THE OLDEST ONE-LINER IN RECORDED HISTORY IS A FART JOKE.

Professor Paul McDonald of the University of Wolverhampton tags a Sumerian joke from 1900 BC as the world’s oldest recorded one-liner. The joke:

Something which has never occurred since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her husband’s lap.

9. FARTS ARE SPRINKLED THROUGHOUT LITERARY HISTORY.

Despite our modern revulsion for human flatulence—it is a topic so unspeakable, it may qualify as a form of pornography—literary masters of antiquity suffered no such hangups. Literary luminaries who mentioned farting include William Shakespeare (flatulence is mentioned five times in his plays), Jonathan Swift (who penned a 1722 essay titled “The Benefit of Farting Explain’d”), Geoffrey Chaucer (whose Canterbury Tales include a line about a man who “let fly a fart as loud as it had been a thunder-clap”), Dante Alighieri (whose Inferno mentions a demon who used “his ass as a trumpet”), and Founding Father Ben Franklin, who wrote a whole essay titled “Fart Proudly.”

10. HITLER HAD TERRIBLE GAS.

Not only was the infamous Nazi dictator a speed freak, he also suffered from hepatitis and gastrointestinal cramps, which led to a condition of chronic flatulence for which he took 28 different medications. It is almost certain that no one complained to Hitler about the smell.

11. WHAT EXACTLY IS A FART?

Flatulence—which occurs in nearly all living organisms—is a mixture of hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and in some cases, methane. These gases are produced as the byproduct of the trillions of bacteria that break down food during the digestive process.

12. CAN FARTS BE MEASURED?

Yes, indeed, they can—using a “rectal catheter,” researchers are able to shove a tube up a patient’s poop chute to determine the volume of gas that is produced during the sacred act of farting.

50 Facts About Men
1. Men like to barbecue. Men will cook if danger is involved.

2. Men who have pierced ears are better prepared for marriage. They’ve
experienced pain and bought jewelry.

3. If you buy your husband or boyfriend a video camera, for the first few
weeks he has it, lock the door when you go to the bathroom. Most of my
husband’s early films end with a scream and a flush.

4. Be careful of men who are bald and rich; the arrogance of “rich” usually
cancels out the nice of “bald.”

5. Marrying a divorced man is ecologically responsible. In a world where
there are more women than men, it pays to recycle.

6. Men are very confident people. My husband is so confident that when he
watches sports on television, he thinks that if he concentrates he can help
his team. If the team is in trouble, he coaches the players from our living
room, and if they’re really in trouble, I have to get off the phone in case
they call him.

7. If it’s attention you want, don’t get involved with a man during play-off
season.

8. Men like phones with lots of buttons. It makes them feel important.

9. Men love to be the first to read the newspaper in the morning. Not being
the first is upsetting to their psyches.

10. All men look nerdy in black socks and sandals.

11. The way a man looks at himself in a mirror will tell you if he can ever
care about anyone else.

12. Don’t try to teach men how to do anything in public. They can learn in
private; in public they have to know.

13. Men who are going bald often wear baseball caps.

14. All men are afraid of eyelash curlers. I sleep with one under my pillow,
instead of a gun.

15. A good place to meet a man is at the dry cleaner. These men usually have
jobs and bathe.

16. Men love watches with multiple functions. My husband has one that is a
combination address book, telescope and piano.

17. All men hate to hear “We need to talk about our relationship.” These
seven words strike fear in the heart of even General Schwarzkopf.

18. Men are sensitive in strange ways. If a man has built a fire and the last
log does not burn, he will take it personally.

19. Men are brave enough to go to war, but they are not brave enough to get a
bikini wax.

20. All men think that they’re nice guys. Some of them are not. Contact me
for a list of names.

21. Men don’t get cellulite. God might just be a man.

22. Men have an easier time buying bathing suits. Women have two types:
depressing and more depressing. Men have two types: nerdy and not nerdy.

23. Men have higher body temperatures than women. If your heating goes out in
winter, I recommend sleeping next to a man. Men are like portable heaters
that snore.

24. Women take clothing much more seriously than men. I’ve never seen a man
walk into a party and say “Oh, my God, I’m so embarrassed; get me out of
here. There’s another man wearing a black tuxedo.”

25. Most men hate to shop. That’s why the men’s department is usually on the
first floor of a department store, two inches from the door.

26. If a man prepares dinner for you and the salad contains three or more
types of lettuce, he is serious.

27. If you’re dating a man who you think might be “Mr. Right,” if he a) got
older, b) got a new job, or c) visited a psychiatrist, you are in for a nasty
surprise. The cocoon-to-butterfly theory only works on cocoons and
butterflies.

28. Men own basketball teams. Every year cheerleaders’ outfits get tighter
and briefer, and players’ shorts get baggier and longer.

29. No man is charming all of the time. Even Cary Grant is on record saying
he wished he could be Cary Grant.

30. When four or more men get together, they talk about sports.

31. When four or more women get together, they talk about men.

32. Not one man in a beer commercial has a beer belly.

33. Men are less sentimental than women. No man has ever seen the movie THE
WAY WE WERE twice, voluntarily.

34. Most women are introspective: “Am I in love? Am I emotionally and
creatively fulfilled?” Most men are outrospective: “Did my team win? How’s
my car?”

35. If a man says, “I’ll call you,” and he doesn’t, he didn’t forget…he
didn’t lose your number…he didn’t die. He just didn’t want to call you.

36. Men hate to lose. I once beat my husband at tennis. I asked him, “Are we
going to have sex again?” He said, “Yes, but not with each other.”

37. Men who can eat anything they want and not gain weight should do it out
of sight of women.

38. Getting rid of a man without hurting his masculinity is a problem. “Get
out” and “I never want to see you again” might sound like a challenge. If you
want to get rid of a man, I suggest saying, “I love you…I want to marry
you…I want to have your children.” Sometimes they leave skid marks.

39. Men accept compliments much better than women do. Example: “Mitch, you
look great.” Mitch: “Thanks.” On the other side: Ruth, you look great.” Ruth:
“I do? Must be the lighting.”

40. Impulse buying is not macho. Men rarely call the Home Shopping Network.

41. Men who listen to classical music tend not to spit.

42. Only men who have worn a ski suit understand how complicated it is for a
woman to go to the bathroom when she’s wearing a jumpsuit.

43. Men don’t feel the urge to get married as quickly as women do because
their clothes all button and zip in the front. Women’s dresses usually button
and zip in the back. We need men emotionally and sexually, but we also need
men to help us get dressed.

44. Men are self-confident because they grow up identifying with superheros.
Women have bad self-images because they grow up identifying with Barbie.

45. When a woman tries on clothing from her closet that feels tight, she will
assume she has gained weight. When a man tries on clothing from his closet
that feels tight, he will assume the clothing has shrunk.

46. Male menopause is a lot more fun than female menopause. With female
menopause you gain weight and get hot flashes. Male menopause – you get to
date young girls and drive motorcycles.

47. Men forget everything; women remember everything.

48. That’s why men need instant replays in sports. They’ve already forgotten
what happened.

49. Men would like monogamy better if it sounded less like monotony.

50. All men would still really like to own a train set.

Amazing Wartime Facts From WWII

  1. The first German serviceman killed in the war was killed by the Japanese (China, 1937)
  2. The first American serviceman killed was killed by the Russians (Finland 1940).
  3. The highest ranking American killed was Lt. Gen. Lesley McNair, killed by the US Army Air Corps.
  4. The youngest US serviceman was 12 year old Calvin Graham, USN. He was wounded in combat and given a Dishonorable Discharge for lying about his age. (His benefits were later restored by act of Congress).
  5. At the time of Pearl Harbor, the top US Navy command was called CINCUS (pronounced “sink us”), the shoulder patch of the US Army’s 45th Infantry division was the Swastika, and Hitler’s private train was named “Amerika”. All three were soon changed for PR purposes.
  6. More US servicemen died in the Air Corps that the Marine Corps. While completing the required 30 missions, your chance of being killed was 71%. Not that bombers were helpless. A B-17 carried 4 tons of bombs and 1.5 tons of machine gun ammo. The US 8th Air Force shot down 6,098 fighter planes, 1 for every 12,700 shots fired.
  7. Germany’s power grid was much more vulnerable than realized. One estimate is that if just 1% of the bombs dropped on German industry had instead been dropped on power plants, German industry would have collapsed.
  8. Generally speaking, there was no such thing as an average fighter pilot. You were either an ace or a target. For instance, Japanese ace Hiroyoshi Nishizawa shot down over 80 planes. He died while a passenger on a cargo plane.
  9. It was a common practice on fighter planes to load every 5th found with a tracer round to aid in aiming. That was a mistake. The tracers had different ballistics so (at long range) if your tracers were hitting the target, 80% of your rounds were missing. Worse yet, the tracers instantly told your enemy he was under fire and from which direction. Worst of all was the practice of loading a string of tracers at the end of the belt to tell you that you were out of ammo. That was definitely not something you wanted to tell the enemy. Units that stopped using tracers saw their success rate nearly double and their loss rate go down.
  10. When allied armies reached the Rhine, the first thing men did was pee in it. This was pretty universal from the lowest private to Winston Churchill (who made a big show of it) and Gen. Patton (who had himself photographed in the act).
     
    Don’t believe me? Take a look at this:

    Amazing Wartime Facts From WWII

    Gen. Patton peeing in the Rhine.

  11. German Me-264 bombers were capable of bombing New York City but it wasn’t worth the effort.
  12. A number of air crewmen died of farts. (ascending to 20,000 ft. in an un-pressurized aircraft causes intestinal gas to expand 300%!)
  13. The Russians destroyed over 500 German aircraft by ramming them in midair (they also sometimes cleared minefields by marching over them). “It takes a brave man not to be a hero in the Red Army”. Joseph Stalin
  14. The US Army had more ships that the US Navy.
  15. The German Air Force had 22 infantry divisions, 2 armor divisions, and 11 paratroop divisions. None of them were capable of airborne operations. The German Army had paratroops who WERE capable of airborne operations.
  16. When the US Army landed in North Africa, among the equipment brought ashore were 3 complete Coca Cola bottling plants.
  17. Among the first “Germans” captured at Normandy were several Koreans. They had been forced to fight for the Japanese Army until they were captured by the Russians and forced to fight for the Russian Army until they were captured by the Germans and forced to fight for the German Army until they were capture by the US Army.
  18. The Graf Spee never sank, The scuttling attempt failed and the ship was bought by the British. On board was Germany’s newest radar system.
  19. One of Japan’s methods of destroying tanks was to bury a very large artillery shell with on ly the nose exposed. When a tank came near the enough a soldier would whack the shell with a hammer. “Lack of weapons is no excuse for defeat.” – Lt. Gen. Mataguchi
  20. Following a massive naval bombardment, 35,000 US and Canadian troops stormed ashore at Kiska. 21 troops were killed in the fire-fight. It would have been worse if there had been Japanese on the island.
  21. The MISS ME was an unarmed Piper Cub. While spotting for US artillery her pilot saw a similar German plane doing the same thing. He dove on the German plane and he and his co-pilot fired their pistols damaging the German plane enough that it had to make a forced landing. Whereupon they landed and took the Germans prisoner. It is unknown where they put them since the MISS ME only had two seats.
  22. Most members of the Waffen SS were not German.
  23. The only nation that Germany declared was on was the USA.
  24. During the Japanese attack on Hong Kong, British officers objected to Canadian infantrymen taking up positions in the officer’s mess. No enlisted men allowed!
  25. Nuclear physicist Niels Bohr was rescued in the nick of time from German occupied Denmark. While Danish resistance fighters provided covering fire he ran out the back door of his home stopping momentarily to grab a beer bottle full of precious “heavy water”. He finally reached England still clutching the bottle, which contained beer. Perhaps some German drank the heavy water…
