Farting, fighting over farting not against law in Austria

We’ve all had days where the gas coming out of our butts could make a flower wilt. But we probably haven’t experienced such a thing on a plane, much less had that plane forced to land because of the flatulence.

A flight from Dubai to Amsterdam had to be diverted last week after passengers became unruly over one man’s farts. According to reports, a passenger’s continued farting caused trouble, understandably, with two other passengers on the plane. It got so bad that a fight broke out, even after the pilot had warned the unruly passengers. The plane made an unscheduled stop in Vienna to remove the people causing the disturbance. Austrian police set no charges were filed.

Hopefully they left the doors open to ventilate the cabin before continuing on to their destination.

The McBournie Minute: How Google killed April Fools’ Day

It’s just about the end of the day, and that means you’ve nearly survived April Fools’ Day, which is easily the worst day to have an internet connection. Suddenly, everyone thinks it’s a good idea to announce something jaw dropping and seeing who believes them, and even companies are getting in on the action.

It wasn’t always like this. April Fools’ Day used to be a day of elaborate pranks to get a rise out of people. It was once known as a day to either seek a playful revenge on a rival or get the goat of a good friend. No one puts Lifesavers in their friends’ shower head anymore, no one leaves a pair of pants on top of some shoes in the office bathroom stall and counts the hours until the EMTs are called. Today we settle for Facebook pictures of someone’s cubicle filled with packing peanuts.

What the hell happened to April Fools’ Day? Continue reading The McBournie Minute: How Google killed April Fools’ Day

And one question will still linger

No longer will we ever be able to find out who dealt it.

Ever wanted to ‘pass gas’ while sitting next to your significant other in a movie theater, but couldn’t because you just ate that bag of sour cream and onion potato chips? Well, thanks to Japan, now you can! Seiren, a Japanese textile company, developed a series of special deodorizing undershorts called Inoidore Shukan Shoshu that can reduce odor by 80 percent in 30 seconds. It is comprised of a special textile that contains ceramic particles and metallic ions with fibers, which helps absorb stink particles.

Seiren is confident with their product. They spent two and half years developing it, even going so far as to perform stink tests at home. Ew. Of course, something this cool is going to be expensive, at 4,800 moonbucks yen (approximately 49 dollars US and change) each. Still, think of the relief that you’ll be able to take part in. Worry not, you don’t have to hold it in any longer since they are available now in Japan. They are nice and everything, but you still can’t remove the sound, which is perhaps worse than the smell. No matter, give them a couple more years and they will have briefs that can solve that problem too!

Beans, beans, they’re good for your heart, the more you eat them …

Gentlemen rejoice! Your old-pizza smelling flatulence is now excused by saying it may help regulate your blood pressure. The study tested this theory on mice, which really kills two birds with one fart for SG. In order to continure the war, we need to study these creatures. The research showed that flatulence in mice actually lowered their blood pressure. So, now our new goal is to keep the mice from farting. If they stop farting, they build high blood pressure, which leads to an early death, and means they can’t hurt us/steal our cheese.
