Is It Possible To Never Fart ?
« on: 02/08/2011 11:31:03 »
Dearest Scientists & Klevur Peeps Of Knowledge Base Grandiose !



I recently read about a person who adamantly stated that they do not fart (for social reasons) and thus they burp a lot more...is this really possible ?...to hold a fart such that it turns 180 and becomes a burp ?

I find it unlikely but  it was a credible source !

whajafink ?


Thanks

You could insist he or she tries to light a burp!

This person could possibly become a part time post-curry fire eater !

Your body relaxes when you sleep, so the person in question will fart in their sleep whether they want to or not. So no, I don't think you can turn a fart into a burp.

Sounds like they are talking sh#te. Presumably they have halitosis. Even Queenie has been known to let loose a major ripper and clear a room in ten seconds.

"More tea Archbishop?"

Mind you, I'm not sure that we relax enough to automatically outgas in our sleep. That could have some unforeseen and unfortunate consequences. I think we usually get a wake-up call if the need arises.

Turn a fart into a burp???? Hmmm, most unsavory.

The old windy-pops will have to get the bus from the Uranus to the north & south via the intestine, cemetary gates and tum-tum and it will be going against the traffic.

Nah, I don't believe it, I bet he lets rip when there's nobody about

Of course, they could simply be confused. Maybe they think it doesn't count if it's silent?

Glad I didn't say that

Orf with his head!

I wouldn't be so sure, I must admit to having farted so loud while asleep, I woke myself up and very near pee'd myself laughing.

Maybe they are wearing the Ig-nobel prize-winning odour-eating underpants ...
