Fluctuating of the Flatulence


Flatulence is the expulsion through the rectum of a mixture of gases that are byproducts of the digestion process of mammals and other animals. The medical term for the mixture of gases is flatus, informally known as a fart, or simply (in American English) gas. The gases are expelled from the rectum in a process colloquially referred to as "passing gas", "breaking wind" or "farting". Flatus is brought to the rectum by the same peristaltic process which causes feces to descend from the large intestine. The noises commonly associated with flatulence are caused by the vibration of the anal sphincter, and occasionally by the closed buttocks.

Not to be confused with vaginal flatulence.

Well, since he copied and pasted it(as usual), I'm sure you could do it just as well.

Not to be confused with the "brain fart" either, but we've become painfully aware of that phenomenon thanks to Slayer's many noxious emissions.

Well, I never heard of the word "flatus" so it wasn't a completely useless thread!! :D

It still think there needs to be another verb for the action...like "who just flatted" or "Excuse me, I just flatumed" or something....you don't say "Suzie quietly flatulenced." Do we have to say "fart?"

I love how Amazon has taken enough interest to delete a post out of this thread, but not enough to delete this thread out of the GBF

flautas are good now and then, but I prefer tacos and quesadillas most of the time.

Anybody ever notice that there seems to be a four year cycle when it seems to be worse - just saying...

Wait, I may have confused that with brain farts - sorry.

Why is "flatted" ok, but "farted" is not? They're just words, and they don't bite. Maybe just stink a little bit.

I wish I could fart right in the no voters mouths.

... if it is an "epidemic", prove it. Or are you just, you know, passing gas?
