Did you know that if you eat a healthy diet you will pass gas 13 times a day? Now I don't know if they had grant money to study this enthralling piece of science......but MY question is......who counted?

Oooooooooh.......I guess my sons would rate WAY ABOVE AVERAGE. In fact, we call the youngest "Sir Gaseous", because he can actually fart on cue. We'll all be sitting in front of the TV, watching a movie on the DVD player, and if there's a sudden silence between two characters.......Ben supplies the dialogue!!
So, a healthy person breaks wind an "average" 13X/day.....I guess I save it all up for nighttime, cuz I sure as hell don't let it happen during the day. The last time I did, I embarrassed the hell out of myself.......I was in college, and I had this awful gas attack that lasted all through my last two classes AND a chemistry lab, during which I held it all in, even when I had to bend over to get a flask out of the bottom drawer.
So I was in some pretty serious pain by the time the lab got over around 4:30 PM, and once I was outside I decided to let out what my family and I call a "test fart", meaning just enough to relieve the pressure until we can get rid of the rest of it in the proper venue. Well, at first glance it looked like I was alone in the college courtyard, so I let go a little........only it echoed like a rifle shot!! Mortified, I looked up, and there were two people who had just come out of an upstairs classroom, and they had heard the whole thing!! They were grinning at me, and I just bolted for the car, "putting" every step of the way.:imbar
Thank God that doesn't happen very often!!!
