Gettin' windy!

In honor of our incredible Draggontagger, here are a few fun facts about farts...

Farts have less atmospheric gas and more bacterial gas content than burps.
Farts don't disappear - they just migrate back up through the intestines till they can escape.
A normally healthy person produces about 1/2 liter of gas a day, and an average of 14 farts.
People who swallow a lot of air,  for example chewing gum, sucking on hard candy, smoking, eating with mouth open, tend to fart more often.
There have been cases in which intestinal gas with higher than normal oxygen content have EXPLODED during surgery when electric cautery was used by surgeons.

Every kid would love one of these in their stockings this Christmas!
(Yes - I bought one 2 years ago on OLA and it was FUN!)

That was the best post to see.
