  • How the F*** are we supposed to know?

    Flatulence contains nitrogen, carbon dioxide, oxygen, methane, and hydrogen sulfide. These are created by the fermentation of undigested foods such as bean skins and veegtable fiber. The hydrogen sulfide and other compounds (mercaptan, butyric acid and carbonyl sulfide) make the released gases smell bad. Humans actually expel little methane compared to ruminants such as cows and sheep. Take that lol

      A fart may be a social nuisance and it can create humiliating and embarrassing situations for the person, but it is still an essential bodily process. If we gulp down a lot of air during eating or if our stomach is unable to digest a meal entirely and properly, a combination of excess gas starts to fill up your stomach. The gas needs to be taken out of the digestive system in form of farts as it would otherwise cause serious gastric pains and other accompanying discomforts. :)?
