For a four and half year old, he sure knows a lot about science.
We breathe in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide.
What about when we fart?
What kinda gas compositions do we emit?
Okayyy.... Now my brain starts clicking, the wheels are turning...
If there is an answer to that, how do we know if the answer is true? Did the scientist capture the gas in plastic bags or canisters? Did they run tests on litmus paper? If so, how did participants of the research knew when they will fart? Did they feed them with lots of bean to ensure lots of gas?
I admit. I was a bit stumped when Gooly asked that question. Based on past experiences, I know not to rely on you guys for answers. Instead, I went tap -tap-tapping the keyboards straight to my trusted G.O.O.G.L.E sites.
All about farts - I typed.
Ho ho ho..... I found a GEM. Not so for the knowledge contained in there but.... I realized that there are many people who wonder about kentut and are not shy to ask anything and everything about it, like moi and moi son. (Simply. I don't speak or read French.)
Among the many questions that made me laugh my infamous snort- like-pig laughter were:
a. Is it possible for a talented person to earn a living through flatulence? (Sinkar, this could be your chance to be famous!)
b. Is it normal for dogs to like the smell of human farts? (Liucas, I know your answer already! Don't say out, she will not feed you for 100 days!)
c. What is the best position for farting? (imho, while doing a hand stand in the swimming pool.)
d. Do fish fart? (Tuti and Tutu, RIP.. But I suppose out of boredom, you did dare each other to do the stunts of pushing air through the rear end.)
e. Is it possible to leave a brown spot on your pants because of a fart? (GG, that day you said you sat on Milo...hmmmm?)
f. If you fart in the bathtub, is the water polluted and should you refill the tub? (I don't care. I don't have a tub. I want to know about swimming pool.)
g. Is it weird to enjoy farting? (Sinkar, back to you.)
h. Is it common for people to enjoy smelling their own fart? (GG, I know you like other people's. That is uncommon!)
i. Can farting be considered sexy? (IF done by me.. 99.99% yes)
I love laughing at one in the morning.
(Is there a way to control this snorting? It's embarassing!)
