Alec Keon asked the Naked Scientists: Chris,I am a new listener and serious fan of the podcast! I was wondering if the team could enlighten me as to why farting while bathing/in the shower smells distinctly different and considerably worse than regular atmospheric gas-passing.Thanks!AlecWhat do you think?
Perhaps at other times your clothes do a little filtering. Do you have trousers (US = pants) impregnated with charcoal?
Based on a control experiment conducted in a confined space but wearing clothes (caving), I can assure you it is 99% confined space effect, and the absorption must play a minor role.
