Okay maybe not live forever, but when the microbes take over the world, they'll remember that it was us fartbagsvegans who gave them the good stuff when they were hungry.

In related news, i feel so bad for this person. I mean, I'm glad her dietary choices make her feel better, but I want to hug her and say "farts are not the enemy" (while feeding her a bean and seitan snausage)

Ha! I just sent that NPR story to my partner who is convinced that the amount of farts I produce "can't possibly be healthy".

I read this part to my boyfriend: "A healthy individual can have up to 18 flatulences per day and be perfectly normal" and he looked at me and disbelief and said, "Vegans can knock 18 out in an hour!"

Mr Moon: "I can say I generally hit that quota daily. Especially today".

Dude ain't vegan, either.

That is the mildest, gentlest, vaguest euphemism I've ever heard. Air comes?

"In many cases, people who complain about too much gas actually don't generate more than others, he says. Instead, they perceive the passing more intensely."


This is one ultra-tactful article. Well done, NPR.

I've been ultra gassy lately and it's kind of a terrible time for it. I'm spending literally 24 hours a day with my friend and I have no fart time! My tummy is starting to hurt because of all the holding. How do I introduce farting into a friendship?

This was the Mr & me for the first couple of months of the relationship, he accidentally let rip while standing up around the 3 months mark, I cried laughing at his mortification. I managed to hold on until 5 months... simply because he wanted me to let go... then let rip like a hungover builder, it's pretty much been the tone (heh) of our relationship ever since.

Woo! That article made almost no fart jokes; I am quite impressed.

I'm surprised we don't need gas masks over here, and we are a 1 vegan/1 omni house. Healthy microbiomes in these parts.
