Fart Facts - Did You Know?

OK...we've all done it before and have even been innocent victims of farts. But did you know?

* Farts are created mostly by E. coli.

* On the average a fart is composed of about 59% nitrogen, 21% hydrogen, 9% carbon dioxide, 7% methane, and 4% oxygen. Less than 1% is what makes them stink.

* The temperature of a fart at time of creation is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

* Farts have been clocked at a speed of 10 feet per second.

* A person produces about half a liter of farts a day.

* Although they won't admit it, women fart as much as men.

* Termites are the largest producers of farts.

* Farts are flammable.

* The word "fart" comes from the Old English "feortan" (meaning "to break wind").

* Excess gas in the intestinal is medically termed "flatulence."
Chuck ain't got nothing on one of my farts after eating Taco Bell. I've let one out while riding my bike at 70mph that managed to linger with me for almost a mile.
I think this thread stinks.:biggrin:
I ripped one in the warehouse the other day that lingered for like 20 minutes. Maybe I need to go see a Doc....
