“The greatest pleasure I know is to do a good action by stealth and have it found out by accident.” ― Charles Lamb
The German word is Furz. (old spelling Pfurz). I always thought that was onomatopoeic: pffffurz!
A few weeks ago, a group of us were standing in a newly remodeled kitchen discussing the partially tiled floor. Someone farted (it wasn't me I swear) and it was so gross. Smelled like rotten eggs. I had to act like nothing happened while subtly grappling with the fact that the fart-blame thoughts were circling and wafting (just like the fart itself.) Who-done-it in our assembly of people? It was someone. I know it was one of the men. But - I have no idea what the other non-farters were thinking. a few years ago, I had two lovely clients - a couple. It was one of the best projects ever. Everyone was so nice and normal. But the wife would let her farts rip. I mean RIP. I was warned by my friend that she lets em' rip. Wow, it was true. I found it refreshingly honest.

Cocktails and a party atmosphere lower inhibitions...This was a professional setting. If I need to fart, I hold it until... well, forever if I can. No way I'm letting it out.
The thing is, she would fart and we would all stand there in stunned silence. Pretend like nothing happened. (while I secretly admired her courage)*
What is that second bullet point struggling to say? It's pretty much gibberish. And what word was coined in 1962? Certainly not "fart."
Did you know that if you fart (or go poop), and then light a match, the smell will disappear?An old fart will know these things.
Did you know that if you fart (or go poop), and then light a match, the smell will disappear?What's the scientific basis for this?
In a match, these roles are played by red phosphorus, sulfur and potassium chlorate, respectively. But before we explain the purpose of each of these, we should mention a few other supporting elements. Ammonium phosphate, for instance, is impregnated into the matchstick wood to stifle afterglow when the flame dies.The chemicals involved like to eat shit smells.AllenS, PHD, BS
Probably TMI.....but here goes :-DI love love love California style dried apricots but they really really don't love me back. Those are made by smoking the apricots in a tent full of sulphur smoke before putting them out to dry in the sun. Keeps the bright orange color and the insects won't land on the drying fruit. Even THEY know better than that. (I spent quite a bit of my time in the summer working in the apricot orchards as pre teen and teen.)The sulphur does a number on my "gaseous" emissions, if you get my drift. So... if I plan to eat California dried apricots I should also plan on being a hermit for a couple of day. I mean...lethal!!
Termites produce more emissions than almost any living creature on earth. I think someone once estimated that termites produce more emissions than livestock and humanity combined. That's nuts.
