    I heard from someone that when you fart you actually send little lumps of poo around the room, and thats why it smells. does this mean if you do a really bad fart you can give someone hepatitis from it?

    i think it depends on what kind of hepatitis the person who farts has. it'd prob depend as well how close you were to them when they farted or whether they were wearing thin trousers or like jeans

    How would that help? Once you've smelt it, you're fooked. :p:

    yeah but it would be like an early warning system, you'd at least know to go get it checked out before it gets too serious

    The only way you'd send poo everywhere is if you fart with your pants/trousers down.

    INTO SOMEONES FACE.

    or maybe if you cupped it in your hand and wafted it at some1s face...
    but if you think about it your underwear and trousers are thin enough to let the smell out, which is the poo particles in the methane coming out of your rectum.
