  • Why would I care, if I never know it? I personally wouldn't care if I did know it either I'm just askin.
  • I feel pretty good about that...I feel strong..I think we can take the championship!
  • I really wouldn't mind and your bit of trivia (or is it medical fact) makes me more comfortable about passing gas. :) thanks!
  • I don't generally care even if I do know it. It's natural, and a requirement of living. As long as I don't smell it, then whatever happens happens. I usually prefer they keep it as quiet as possible, but things happen.
  • You're farting while you're reading this aren't you??
  • I would think everyone holds it in until they are done talking with a person. It's called sphincter control. Most people have it. Except for maybe old people (but they don't really seem to care if they do it in front of anyone nor how loud it might be).
  • Can someone hookup some anal microphones to do a case study on this? This would be a great science project for school......I'm on it.
  • I never really think about it; but I do wonder about the poor person that had the job of following people around counting. ;)
  • I believe I exceed that average. I fart all the time when talking to people. I'm even farting as I type this! It's only fair that they fart when they talk to me.
  • If it could be harvested then it could be a comodity. I generally try not to pass gas in the company of others. If it happens then the reason is there is more room on the outside than the inside. I say try to be kind but dont kill yourself trying to hold it in. Nature does call.
  • I'm not sure if I believe your claim of twenty-five farts per day, but I'm not average. I NEVER fart. I've never farted in my life, actually. (I'm a compulsive liar that farts mid-conversation.)
  • i feel like i am missing out on some gas! are there farts we cant feel? ghost farts! i wonder if ghosts fart? this will not make the usual AB dinner conversation we have LOL
  • This is the funniest situation question I've ever read! I'm still sitting here giggling and I will forever think of this as I'm talking to people in the hallway now! HAHA!
  • "An average person farts about 25 times a day..." What is your source for this fascinating bit of Fartological data? An E-mail? NAFTA ? ( National Association of Fart Technician Assistants? I am defenitly above or below average, depending on your view point on farts. Or depending on if your upwind or alee.And what do you mean by "...that's a lot." No it's not, it's average. "Without you knowing it" I dunno bout you but generally I can tell when sumwon farts. Acourse, sometimes I fart and blame it on them, that would tend to skew the statistics, but then I am not a crepitologist, so what do I care. I figure that if I don't talk to the average person I am safe, or if I must converse with that person I should only have 24 conversations in any one day. And how many times does the average person fart in an average night? And just exactly who is there to count them? Goll durn govt. intruding into our private flatulant lives again! But then mebbe they is just tryin to solve the gas crisis. Oh HO! Perhaps some sort of nozzle just behind the seat belt? I mean ya gotta be way precise when ya sit down, but it mite add a mile per or so. .
  • I don't fart that many times a day! LOL
  • I don't even fart that many times a day? Did that number come out of your a** too? Haha j/k:P
  • Man, all these members have great answers! This is a good question. I wouldn't have a problem with it so long as I didn't smell it, I pass gas in front of certain people all the time...lol well, not ALL the time but you catch my drift... ;) LMAO
  • 25 times a day? your definition of an average person must be 600lbs eating alot of beans and burrito lol
  • So thats what those smells are?! Ha Ha
  • LMFAO silent but deadly! actually that's pretty darn funny.
  • Im not sure. For me my wife can always tell because I make a face or lift my leg or go silent in the middle of conversation. Since shes around me more maybe she can tell what others can't. I feel I would show some signs that I did.
  • I feel like I need a flatulence mask.
  • Where did you find this information about how many times a person farts? That sounds rather far(t) fetched to me!
  • I want to know how many times a day a cow farts since they are apparently contributing more to global warming haha. I don't really care about people's flatulence as long as I can't smell it. Honestly, I don't believe those statics though. Anyway, we all know 47% of all statistics are nonsense... :-P Seriously, I'd say when I was in shape, I'd fart an average of 0-3 times per day and now I fart more like 5-20 times per days depending on what I've eaten and how I feel. And yes, I'm taking into account farts while I sleep, silent and deadlies, etc...
  • LOL the old 'don't admit it unless your caught' trick. If someone is farting while standing in front of me and I didn't know, they must be a pretty talented farter. I've always wondered how to master the silent ones.
  • I refuse to believe the statistic. Can't picture myself or most...okay some people I know farting that much. Seems excessive! Hhhmmm..
  • In my case, most of them happen in my sleep. I've been told I fart a lot in my sleep. Some good rippers too
  • LoL...I don't care, as long as I'm not downwind of a quiet storm ^_^ or any storm for that matter.
