Passing gas: Everybody does it and no one wants to admit it.
This embarrassing habit may seem foul, but breaking wind is simply an unavoidable byproduct of our daily digestion. In fact, the average individual can pass gas anywhere from 13 to 21 times a day.
But your gaseous patterns can actually speak volumes about your health, especially in regards to your eating habits, and they may even serve as an indication of larger digestive health issues.
People who produce excessive amounts of gas and particularly foul smelling gas if youre eating a super high fiber diet, that could be part of it, Dr. Anish Sheth, a gastroenterologist in Princeton, N.J., told FoxNews.com. But if its something thats persistent, and your significant other is noticing it, it could be a problem.

Vegetarians stink and are related to cows!
Yes they do have a LOT of gassy emissions....
Funny how vegans are now railing against methane....
Maybe they should all go jump off a cliff...
flatus...a genus closely related to FLOTUS?
They just need to install an ignition system on their ass!
I have a buddy of mine - retired Marine - who can LAY WASTE to the entire cubicle population at work. The man is a Methane Production Machine, and causes eye-watering, nostril-burning emissions that can be seen GLOWING from space with the miasmatic FUNK of it all....
His bowels should be classified by the EPA as an Environmental Disaster Area...
And he just smiles, grins, and laughs about it.
When he’s in the toilet stalls, if you are unlucky enough to be in there at the same time, you’ll find yourself hammering on the wall, begging for a Courtesy Flush...
Yeah... it’s that bad. Funnier than hell, but man... what a stench.
Ozone depleting air biscuits...
What’s it mean when it persistently smells like roses?
“More Beans Mr. Tagart?”
A number of years ago I ran out of propane on a forklift in the middle of the dock. As I was rolling the empty to the end of the dock for a fresh tank one of our guys asked; “Did you run out of gas way down there?” I told him, “No, I might run out of fuel once in a while but I never run out of gas.”
You should be more careful where you sit...
Well, that certainly clears the air.
Got this recently in an email:
This is a story about a couple who had been happily married for years, the only friction in their marriage was the husbands habit of farting loudly every morning when he awoke
The noise would wake his wife and the smell would make her eyes water and make her gasp for air. Every morning ...she would plead with him to stop ripping them off because it was making her sick.
He told her he couldn’t stop it and that it was perfectly natural.
She told him to see a doctor, she was concerned that one day he would blow his guts out.
The years went by and he continued to rip them out. Then one Christmas day morning, as she was preparing the turkey for dinner and he was upstairs sound asleep, she looked at the innards, neck, gizzard, liver and all the spare parts, and a malicious thought came to her. She took the bowl and went upstairs where her husband was sound asleep and, gently pulling the bed covers back, she pulled back the elastic waistband of his underpants and emptied the bowl of turkey guts into his shorts. Sometime later she heard her husband waken with his usual trumpeting which was followed by a blood curdling scream and the sound of frantic footsteps as he ran into the bath room. The wife could hardly control herself as she rolled on the floor laughing, tears in her eyes! After years of torture she reckoned she had got him back pretty good.
About twenty minutes later, her husband came downstairs in his blood stained underpants with a look of horror on his face. She bit her lip as she asked him what was the matter.
He said, “Honey you were right. All these years you have warned me and I didn’t listen to you.”
” What do you mean?” asked his wife.
“Well, you always told me that one day I would end up farting my guts out, and today it finally happened, but by the grace of god, some Vaseline and two fingers. I think I got most of them back in.”
“Whats it mean when it persistently smells like roses?”
If people are telling you that, it means you out rank them or can affect their pay check. It does not, however, mean that your gas really does smell like roses.

Hell, I’m at 21 before I even get out of bed...
Alright, who put ‘music’ in the ‘keywords’? Fessup.
Take it in and revel in it, it means you’re alive! I know a guy, while driving with passengers will roll up the windows (and electrically lock them out), then cut a big one and laugh his head off.
LOL! However, I've been on the "Eat to Live" regimen espoused by Dr. Joel Fuhrman for 18 months (more like 80%). Simply put, it's a diet based on "beans and greens".
Without getting too graphic, the regimen promotes regularity, so much so that gas isn't a problem. I'll just leave it at that.
