When was the last time you farted in public?

In high school, kids do it because they think it's funny. The louder the better. The stinkier the better. Adults are taught not to do it in public.

I swore I caught a woman at Target who was pushing her cart, let one out, and kept walking down the aisle. I confess I've done this in the grocery aisle a few times.

I don't do it for attention, but if I'm in a store and the aisle is empty, you better believe I let it go. Of course that's usually right around the time someone walks into the aisle and I walk away - leaving a nice little gift for them.

I have been belching alot lately for some reason but the other to. Which is worse? I look at it as a normal bodily function, very natural.

I hold it in if possible. I learned the hard way not to let it rip; ie I sharted in a grocery store. That was embarrassing.

Everyday at work - I work retail.

The real question should be... when was the last time you made a noisey and stinky fart in public.

Earlier today in Best Buy, in the DVD section. I fear there's going to be a slump in Drama sales today.

Today, on the T, on my way home. I don't have a problem letting it go, I can be sneaky about it. Plus, farts are still funny.

I find farting in public to be a real problem when I'm listening to music on my ipod.

when i've gotta let one rip, I usually let out a small "test fart" to make sure it's not going to be a reverberating howler. But if I'm listening to my ipod, sometimes I can't be sure if it's silent or if it's a noisy one.

Several times today.

But it was in an empty hallway.

Today at work. Luckily no one heard it and it wasn't a "deadly" one either.

Stay by her fart so she could be held accountable.

The last time I was in public. And mine are silent, but deadly. Mine can rarely be heard but people around me know something bad is in the air soon after. Soymilk really makes them bad.

This is known as "crop dusting"

You have to make sure you don't do what this guy did.

Actually, it would be either a "reverse crop dust" or a "mine laying". Crop dusting is where you fart as you're walking by someone. It's a good one, because they'll usually move further into the path.

Anyway, I fart in public a lot. I try not to make it obvious, but if I have to go, I try to make it seem like someone else did it. It's always funny to watch people think it's someone that didn't do it.

Mine are usually loud and non-smelly. The best kind. But I avoid doing it in public because most adults find farting childish and offensive.

A few months ago I was leaving work late, around 7:30 and was on the elevator down. I couldn't hold it, and it was so late, I knew the elevator wouldn't stop. I let a nice loud stinky one go and instantly the elevator stopped and 3 people got on. Was very smooth on my part
