Why Do My Farts
    #4229705 - 05/28/05 01:02 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

smell so much better than other people's farts?  I mean, occasionally mine smell bad, but not too often. 

Other people, however, do not agree.  My farts have been generally regarded with much disdain. 

I logically conclude that these other people have an inferior sense of smell to mine.  This could be genetic or environmental, or just not being able to appreciate the finer things in life...

That is really funny.

I am a veg- erson and my farts do not smell.

Most people think that my farts would be worse...but they are not.

Lots of people just like the smell of their own farts...good or bad.

On a spiritual or philosophical level, this topic stinks. :mushroom2:

And what makes my farts any less spiritual or philosophical to me than someone elses sneezes and yawns?

Who are you to judge the quality of bodily functions?

"Lots of people just like the smell of their own"

Or learn to tolerate those of loved ones...  :wink:

I wasn't judging anything. :grin:  I just can smell those farts right through my computer. :thumbdown: I suggest digestive enzymes.

I'm not much into sneezes and yawns either as a topic. But they don't smell quite as much. :ass:

Ok I was just joking! :grin: Often wrong food combinations can cause odiferous farts. If food ferments in the gut, this can be a cause.

If you like your farts, Well, enjoy them. :grin: :thumbup:

It is difficult enough to sustain the integrity of a philosophy and spirituality forum anywhere in the modern world without the additional difficulty of pure idiocy being added to it.

Isn't flatulence caused by methanogens in your large intenstine?

In that case, thank symbiosis for your unique smell, despite the fact that "you" are not really the one creating it if you consider yourself a separate organism.

Flatulence is also aerosolized particles of feces, if I remember correctly.

I do not know why humans don't mind the smell of their own as much as other people, seeing as it's the same chemicals excreted from them or you that makes their characteristic smell. Perhaps it's an evolutionary advantage so you don't get disturbed by your natural processes while still being able to sense when these gases are flooding your nasal cavities.

More research is needed.

"Evolutionary advantage"

You might have something there.

Certainly at some point if we smell bad from body odor etc. our noses get used to it. If it were pain, for instance our body will keep reminding us something is wrong and we should try to fix it.

"pure idiocy"

Thank You.

If there's anything I hate, it's tainted idiocy.  :smirk:

Are you saying simple methane gas and gastrointestinal bacteria are not just illusions created by the Demiurge by that must be overcome by realizing our pneuma and attaining gnosis?

Post about flatulence if you will, just not on the S&P. Is nothing sacred? Scratch that...is anything relevant? :smirk:
Hells Bells, fart in a test tube and ignite it, but post it elsewhere for crying out loud.

Sense of smell is the most flexible sense of all senses in human body, it adops almost compleatly, you can be a rotting corpse and get used to your own smell.

Well I've smeled worse smells than corpses, it's not as nearly as bad as people make it be, a fart is much worse than a corpse

"Sense of smell is the most flexible sense"

That makes sense! New smells are more important to your survival than old smells. To be able to quickly identify food and tell whether it is fresh or spoiled is still important but prior to food preservation was even more important for keeping healthy.

One does not own farts, all farts smell the same, they smell shit..

judging however, is applied individually, as personal possessiveness, hence your shit, which you then own, smell better than the shit smell you can not be the owner of.. :P

It's nice how we show us, simple truths through "normal behaviors"...

:wink:

"One does not own farts"

But they are often passed along to one's heirs. Explain.

well, there may be a little merit in discussing body odors and their attractive and unattractive qualities, especially concerning mates (sweat, after all, is one of the smells of sex), but reading "why do my farts" as a spirituality topic is crude and lame... *sighs*


~

i have had 2 lsd trips in the last couple weeks, and my stomach became minorly upset (gasy) for a time during each of them.... being on acid, of course, this became confusing and then ultimately very informing.

but then, perhaps this thread isn't worth redemption... oi!


be well y'all

and behave (some of ya)

Everything is better than it was the last time.  I'm good.

If we could look into each others hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.

It takes a lot of courage to go out there and radiate your essence.

I know you scared, you should ask us if we scared too.  If you was there, and we just knew you cared too.
