    Considering how open minded this group has been, what do you think?

    I liked your article so much, Theme, that I voted for it in your poll. :-))

    Oops, I voted before you were finished writing the poll so I voted for a blank choice. Now I can't vote again.

    In high concentrations, H₂S is really, really bad for you (ie. comparable to hydrogen cyanide or carbon monoxide). At the concentrations found in flatulence, it's merely unpleasant. I'd be surprised if any inhaled hydrogen sulfide was useful to the body.

    Yikes, Twll! Deadly farts! I associate farts with the devil for some reason so I googled it. I found this, The Cultural History of the Fart http://books.google.com/books?id=dzXo09e488kC&pg=PA90&lpg=PA90&dq=devil+fart&source=bl&ots=rUsS9aeBRc&sig=IXvmmMmZeD5s2mMzG_0xEOjXmZY&hl=en&sa=X&ei=EKvXU-uHG8WeyATrgYL4AQ&ved=0CCwQ6AEwBjgK#v=onepage&q=devil fart&f=false. Apparently farts play an important part in history. :-))

    No, Satan doesn't like farts either. Luther says to present your ass to Satan and fart in his face to get rid of him.

    Hey, I tried putting a piece of plastic up my ass and discovered a whole new world of pleasure. What is to stop me from exhaling my own gaseous expulsions to gain another, until now, unknown health benefit?

    Sure!

    These days I'm suspect of most studies absent some peer review, particularly when they're offered  with few details about the research.  Intriguing thought though and quite amusing as well!  That said it's not the hydrogen sulfide that shuts me down...the skatole and indole are by far the more objectionable components.   This brings to mind something that my first girlfriend told me long ago in one of our intimate moments:

    "You know, it's really gross when you're out somewhere and you smell farts....cuz it's like, what was once up someone's asshole.... is now up your nose! "  

    @euphemistic, that link was a hoot, thanks for posting it!  

    I must add that no discussion of flatulence is complete without the inclusion of that Mark Twain classic "1601, A Conversation as it was by the Social Fireside in the time of the Tudors"

    Told by Billy Connolly:

    At a meeting of the Commonwealth Heads of State in London, the Queen Mother was standing next to the King of Tonga outside Buckingham Palace, when suddenly, one of the horses of the Household Cavalry farted very loudly.

    Turning to the King of Tonga the Queen Mother said, "I'm sorry about that."

    "I thought it was the horse," replied the King of Tonga.
