Smelling farts could be the best thing you do today [bizarre "health discovery"]
CNET.com ^ | July 11, 2014 | Anthony Domanico

It's Friday, and what better way to spend the day that starts with F than talking about Flatulence?

Anyone who has accidentally let one rip in a social situation understands the immediate horror associated with getting caught passing gas. But instead of being ashamed when you fart in public, you should embrace your dirty deed with pride, as you may have just helped saved someone's life. Well, that's what a study currently getting some attention might suggest, but it's more complicated than that.

The study out of the University of Exeter in the UK found that the hydrogen sulfide gas found in rotten eggs and flatulence could reduce the risk of cancer, heart attack, strokes, arthritis, and dementia.

"...hydrogen sulfide gas found in rotten eggs and flatulence could reduce the risk of cancer, heart attack, strokes, arthritis, and dementia."

Please. I ate some bran cereal this morning with milk and farted by way through the day, so therefore, I will not get cancer, heart attack, stokes, arthritis, or dementia.

Plus, I also adjusted the idle on my carburetor and didn't fall over from a heart attack. Therefore, my carburetor is a life giving mechanism. Want to buy my old tri-power carbs? Think 3 times as good for your health.

But cow flatulence is destroying the planet?

Globally, there are too many academics doing worthless government studies instead of working for a living.

I just watched the movie, The Man, with Samuel L Jackson and Eugene Levy. Every time Levy ate beef, he had some "accidents" Seems most of those people he came in contact with, had severe amounts of problems with this idea.

To: who knows what evil?

When I was in high school in the late ‘60s, I got a one cylinder Honda motorcycle. I was suddenly everybody’s best friend (those who wanted a ride home from school to avoid riding the school bus).

One day I gave a ride to a friend who weighed about 185. I was barely 140. My friend thought it would be cute to lean the wrong way on turns. As an inexperienced driver, he made me turn wide and I barely missed the curb on the far side.

Thinking fast, I accelerated on the next straight section of road, stood up, then put my anal pore firmly in his face. I then made a glorious gaseous emission directly into his nostrils. He had nowhere to go, so he got a good dose. By this “study’ he should still be benefiting from the inoculation.
