Chemical Equation of flatulation
« on: August 29, 2005, 01:44:58 PM »
Ok, so I have an on-going joke with my co-workers as to the chemical equation of a "fart".   I personally have been making up something that isn't even remotely close to the chemical equation.

I'm sure it has a lot to deal with what you ate.   However, your gastrointestinal tract has to have some sort of chemical breakdown.

In your closest guestimation:   What is the chemical equation of a "fart"?  :)

Thanks!

if you eat many sulfur containing products, your 'fart' will stink worse due to H2S.
