Farting Facts

21 March 2017 - 09:05 PM

Burping, hiccups, and farting are bodily functions which make people laugh, get embarrassed, and even annoyed. The crown jewel on these is farting.


How much do you know about farts besides the fact that they sound and smell funny, and come out from the bum. These are some things you should know about them:

  • Men fart more than women.
  • The original meaning of fart is forth as wind from the anus. This word was coined in 1962.
  • An average person farts around 14 times a day.
  • Those 14 farts a day are enough to fill up a balloon.
  • This is not something to be embarrassed about as it means that you are healthy. A healthy digestive tract produces farts. If you are not farting at all go to the doctor.
  • Farts are made up of hydrogen sulfide that reduces mitochondrial damage. Smelling farts can be healthy, thus next time you fart take a nice deep breath and thank the person.
  • Female farts tend to be stinkier as females have higher concentration of hydrogen sulfide. Female farts are healthier to smell.
  • Farts go as fast as 10 ft/sec.
  • If you have very tight sphincter you will produce louder farts as they have smaller tighter area to squeeze out from.
  • Gum and soda make you fart more, thus if you know somebody who farts a lot and they drink a lot of soda and chewing gum, hide it from them.
  • Most of the farting happens at night when we sleep.
  • Termites are animals which produce the most fart. Camels, zebras, sheep, cows, elephants, and dogs (especially labs and retrievers) follow next.

Would football benefit from something like 7s Rugby?

I don't know about the rest of you but I really enjoy 7s rugby and prefer it to the 15 man game.


Could 5s football have a similar impact?

The House of Lords must go!

13 March 2017 - 04:45 AM

Apparently 95% of Daily Express readers think that the House of Lords has long outlived its usefulness:-


“It’s full of incompetent, ex-ministers, chums of the prime minister, people who have given money to political parties, all that sort of guff. That’s not the best way to run a country.

“There are far too many of them. Far too many put in by Tony Blair, far too many.”

The term “Tony’s Cronies” became synonymous with a line of attack used on the former Prime Minister, who dished out 374 peerages during his time in Number 10.
