Fart Knowledge

Farts are fun, so naturally I looked up this chart that taught me all kinds of fun facts about them. Like who knew the average person farts 14 times a day at up to 7 mph, farts are 59% nitrogen, and the nerve endings in your rectal area differentiate between farts and poop. So if you ever have a splatter fart you know it's those pesky nerve endings to blame. Also, it's good to know you can't suffocate from your own farts. That would be rather unpleasant. In case the writing is too small, here is a list of the top ten gassiest animals.

1. Termites
2. Camels
3. Zebras
4. Sheep
5. Cows
6. Elephants
7. Labradors/Retrievers
8. Humans (Vegetarians) - ME!!!!
9. Humans (Non vegetarians)
10. Gerbils

I must say I'm not surprised camels are near the top. Something about them just seems extra gassy.
