I was just reading some. Normal people fart 14 to 23 times...per day not an year SMH It is the 24th one that should ring the alarm bell. Provided, of course, you have not eaten another round of pickles. If you fart less than 14 times You are simply not NORMAL. Start counting.
Why do we fart? Why do farts smell? We all know that farts are funny, but what else do we know about this common bodily function? As it turns out, not much.

@vandana7 Perhaps it is pertinent to quote Shakespeare: "The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones."

Now that you investigated, I think that the next step should be a connected product with a few sensors : I am sure that many people would be happy to show a live fart counter on FB.

@louievill Many amateurs are working on that. This one was working on a chair detecting farts.
I would like to build a electronic flatulence (fart) detector. I was thinking of methane because detectors are readily available, but I read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flatulence and it says:

What we must invent is a flatulence detector similar to a smoke detector to prevent excessive denials

That's probably enough methane to cook a halfway decent cauliflower and dhal curry. I am just envisaging the person who collected the information. Did they follow "normal" people around counting or did they just do a survery: 1. Are you normal? (If so, continue to the next question, otherwise this survey is not for you.) 2. How many times do you fart a day? (Please be exact and also count the ones that happen while you are sleeping).

I presume I am normal, because I do eat pickles and they are kinda inseparables, right...though I believe I have yet to touch the deadline of 23...unless I am doing so while I am sleeping.

@vandana7 I have to say that I've never counted, though I have noticed a definite increase in output after eating certain types of food, most of which are used in abundance in Indian cuisine!

@vandana7 Think again... you could savor all your pickles without a worry about sharing or those being smuggled! But the real sad news is, I like pickles too. Though I don't let those upset my system. Eating those, remaining fresh ;)

I didn't think ladies farted I thought they did bottom burps! I am shocked from England to think a lady is talking about such bodily functions! Especially you!

Can normal people fart in stereo? I can. I had a guy from the taxes office calling me the other day whilst I was working. Had a few people in the shop. The guy was becoming s bit boring. So I carted right down the phone at him. Oh how the people in the shop laughed. And I had eaten beans earlier and beans make me fart louder and longer
