You might be able to work it out from the frequency of the sound it makes!!!

As a firm believer in empirical study (and as a methane producer) I have been walking around with one of these attached to my arse.










To help the experiment I have been drinking lots of fizzy pop, eating curried beans, eggs, cauliflower,cabbage and pickled onions.

To help me achieve the best data I snuck into my neihgbours house and positioned my derriere atop his face (whilst having already restrained him to his bed) and asked him to read the meter back to me. He clearly failed to understand my meaning because all I could hear from him was gobbledeegook !...so, I felt he needed more time. Four hours passed and his final whimpering failed to make any sense. It's my fault for not explaining it to him properly of course and thus I will make amends. I don't know why he turned green !

It was only upon returning home that I realisd I had not switched it on !!!.... and then I discovered it has a memory function anyway.

So, speeds recorded....



Before consumption of goods: 2 mph
After consumption of goods: 200 mph.


Glad I could help.

Do the blades chop up the solid bits on the way through?
