Flatulence

Martin Luther sprinkled his rhetoric against the Catholic Church with ample references to anal emissions, even turn his mockery back on himself: "I resist the Devil, and often it is with a fart that I chase him away."

Benjamin Franklin wrote an essay about flatulence.

Cows break wind on average about 300 times a day. Humans do so on average, only eight times per day.

Research in New Zealand has shown that the methane from the flatulence of a single sheep could power a small lorry for 25 miles a day.

If you break wind consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.

Silent flatulence have the most concentrated doses of sulfur, the compound that makes breaking wind smell.

The gut bacteria that cause bad-smelling flatulence enjoy munching on sugary foods the most.
