Back sometime in the 1990s, a friend was laughing as she showed me an article in a local weekly paper about flatulence research. I don't remember the name of the University of Minnesota researcher, but it was reported that some French reporters had dubbed him "The King of Farts". What had my friend chortling was the statistic that we farted an average of 13.2 times a day.
"What the hell is 0.2 of a fart?" she asked. "Is that a silent killer?"
