fascinating funny facts about farts


  1. What Is A Fart, Exactly?
    Farts are caused by trapped air, which can
    come from many sources. Some of it is the air
    that we have swallowed while chewing or
    drinking. Some air is caused by gas seeping
    into our intestines from our blood, and some
    gas is produced by chemical reactions in our
    intestines or bacteria living in our guts.
    A typical fart is composed of about 59 percent
    nitrogen, 21 percent hydrogen, 9 percent
    carbon dioxide, 7 percent methane and 4
    percent oxygen. Only about one percent of a
    fart contains hydrogen sulfide gas and
    mercaptans, which contain sulfur, and the
    sulfur is what makes farts stink.
    Farts make a sound when they escape due to
    the vibrations of the rectum. The loudness
    may vary depending on how much pressure is
    behind the gas, as well as the tightness of the
    sphincter muscles.
  2. Why Do Farts Smell Bad?
    The more sulfur-rich your diet is, the more
    terrible your farts will smell. Some foods
    contain more sulfur than others, which is why
    eating things like beans, cabbage, cheese,
    soda, and eggs can cause gas that will peel
    the paint off the walls!
  3. People Pass Gas About 14 Times Per Day
    The average person produces about half a liter
    of farts every single day, and even though
    many women won’t admit it, women do fart
    just as often as men. In fact, a study has
    proven that when men and women eat the
    exact same food, woman tend to have even
    more concentrated gas than men.
    If a person were to fart continuously for 6
    years and 9 months, they would produce gas
    with the equivalent energy of an atomic bomb.
  4. Farts Have Been Clocked At A Speed Of 10
    Feet Per Second.
    Though farts come out with varying velocities,
    we don’t typically smell them for about 10-15
    seconds after letting them rip. This is because
    it takes that long for the odor to reach your
  5. Holding Farts In Could Be Bad For Your
    Doctors disagree on whether or not holding in
    a fart is bad for your health. Some experts
    think that farts are a natural part of your
    digestive system, so holding them in won’t
    harm you. Others think that at best, holding
    them in can cause gas bloating, and other
    uncomfortable symptoms, and at worst,
    repressing gas can cause hemorrhoids or a
    distended bowel.
  6. For Some Cultures, Farting Is No Big Deal
    While most cultures feel that farts should be
    suppressed in polite company, there are some
    cultures that not only don’t mind letting them
    fly in public, but they actually enjoy it. An
    Indian tribe in South America called the
    Yanomami fart as a greeting, and in China you
    can actually get a job as a professional fart-
    In ancient Rome, Emperor Claudius, fearing
    that holding farts in was bad for the health,
    passed a law stating that it was acceptable to
    break wind at banquets.
  7. Farts Are Flammable
    As stated above, the methane and hydrogen in
    bacteria-produced farts make your gas highly
    flammable. This is why some people think it’s
    a fun party trick to hold a lighter up to their
    bums and let a fart free; doing so produces a
    big burst of flame, but is obviously very
    In rare cases, a build-up of flammable gasses
    in the intestines have caused explosion during
    intestinal surgeries.
  8. Termites Produce The Most Farts Of Any
    Other Animal
    It’s hard to believe that the tiny termite is
    responsible for a great deal of our global
    warming problem on the planet.
    Termites fart more than any other animal,
    which produces methane gas.
    According to the Environmental research,
    “Global emissions of methane due to termites
    are estimated to be between 2 and 22 Tg per
    year, making them the second largest natural
    source of methane emissions. Methane is
    produced in termites as part of their normal
    digestive process, and the amount generated
    varies among different species.”
  9. If You Hold Them In, They’ll Just Come Out
    When You Sleep
    Even if you clenched your butt and held them
    in all day, this which is very popular among
    the pretty females, the gas will escape once
    you relax. For what’s more relaxing than
  10. People Even Fart After Death
    Here’s proof that you can’t escape passing
    wind, even after you’re dead! Up to three hours
    after the body dies, gasses continue to escape
    from both ends of the digestive tract, resulting
    in burping or farting noises. This phenomenon
    is due to muscles contracting and expanding
    before rigor mortis sets in..
