When I was a youngster we believed that the Queen had an official apologiser, who would traipse a few paces behind Her Maj. Every time she dropped one, the apologiser would have to cough quietly and say: "Terribly sorry, ma'am".
We reckoned it was a crappy job - after all, you couldn't keep it for long. Once the next lot of invitations came around to Buck House, there would be a little scrawl on the bottom: "Would be gr8 to CU and Phil the Greek, but don't bring that farting oaf again, there's a luv - he made the place pen and ink something chronic."
What is it about farting and the royals, though? Kaiser Bill was apparently obsessed with farting and bottom jokes, while a courtier at the court of Good Queen Bess is said to have gone into self-imposed exile for years after farting in front of the Queen (...sorry, didn't know it was her turn - very old joke!).
When he finally re-appeared all those years later, the first thing Betsy said to him was: "Worry not, Sir Philip; we have quite forgot the fart!"

I keep hearing about cows and methane output. What are the data supporting the effect on global warming of this? Not hearsay but a comparative scientific report. With billions of humans, I doubt that cattle have the numbers to outperform humans. Some work has been done on insects, but here again, what are the population estimates and the math? Should we eliminate insects too? Man probably ate out the mammoth, horse and some other large mammels in North America. Now we raise cattle, pigs (any data here?), etc. since Man has had animal protein as a large part of his diet for a very long time. Just sign me Carnivore born and bred.

Methane production by ruminants: its contribution to global warming Moss AR, Jouany JP, Newbold J ANNALES DE ZOOTECHNIE 49 (3): 231-253 MAY-JUN 2000

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to review the role of methane in the global warming scenario and to examine the contribution to atmospheric methane made by enteric fermentation, mainly by ruminants. Agricultural emissions of methane in the EU-15 have recently been estimated at 10.2 million tonnes per year and represent the greatest source. Of these, approximately two-thirds come from enteric fermentation and one-third from livestock manure. Fermentation of feeds in the rumen is the largest source of methane from enteric fermentation and this paper considers in detail the reasons for, and the consequences of, the fact that the molar percentage of the different volatile fatty acids produced during fermentation influences the production of methane in the rumen. Acetate and butyrate promote methane production while propionate formation can be considered as a competitive pathway for hydrogen use in the rumen. The many alternative approaches to reducing methane are considered, both in terms of reduction per animal and reduction per unit of animal product. It was concluded that the most promising areas for future research for reducing methanogenesis are the development of new products/delivery systems for anti-methanogenic compounds or alternative electron accepters in the rumen and reduction in protozoal numbers in the rumen. It is also stressed that the reason ruminants are so important to mankind is that much of the world's biomass is rich in fibre. They can convert this into high quality protein sources (i.e. meat and milk) for human consumption and this will need to be balanced against the concomitant production of methane. Author Keywords: methane, ruminants, global warning, reduction strategies

Identification of gases responsible for the odour of human flatus and evaluation of a device purported to reduce this odour Suarez FL, Springfield J, Levitt MD GUT 43 (1): 100-104 JUL 1998

Abstract: Background/Aims-While the social significance of flatus derives mainly from its odour, previous studies have focused on the non-odoriferous components of rectal gas. The aims of the present study were to determine the role of sulphur-containing gases in flatus odour and test the efficacy produced of a device purported to reduce this odour. Methods-Flatus was quantitatively col-methyl dis lected via rectal tube from 16 healthy subjects who ingested pinto beans and lactulose to enhance flatus output. The concentrations of sulphur-containing gases in each passage were correlated with odour intensity assessed by two judges. Odour intensity was also determined after treatment of flatus samples with zinc acetate, which binds sulphydryl compounds (hydrogen sulphide and methanethiol), or activated charcoal. Utilising gastight Mylar pantaloons, the ability of a charcoal lined cushion to adsorb sulphur-containing gases instilled at the anus of eight subjects was assessed. Results-The main sulphur-containing flatus component was hydrogen sulphide (1.06 (0.2) mu mol/l), followed by methanethiol (0.21 (0.04) mu mol/l) and dimethyl sulphide (0.08 (0.01) mu mol/l) (means (SEM)). Malodour significantly correlated with hydrogen sulphide concentration (p less than or equal to 0.001). Zinc acetate reduced sulphur gas content but did not totally eliminate odour, while activated charcoal removed virtually all odour. The cushion adsorbed more than 90% of the sulphur gases. Conclusion-Sulphur-containing gases are the major, but not the only, malodorous components of human flatus. The charcoal lined cushion effectively limits the escape of these sulphur-containing gases into the environment.

Lyndi-Loo, thanks for the ZOOTECHNIE abstract. It indicates that feed control or other methods could be developed to reduce methane production. The abstract also points out that livestock are an important producer of protein. Most vegetarians or global warming nuts (not the scientists, whatever the causes, global warming is a fact) only point with horror to the quantity of methane cited, and not put it in context to the rest of the methane producers.

Rude awakening for lollipop lady

Police officers have apologised for smashing down a lollipop lady's door in a dawn raid that went wrong. Ruth Cotton was having an early morning cup of tea and a cigarette when officers rammed through the double-glazed front door of her home in Kirkby, Merseyside.

But the team, who were looking for suspected drug dealers, were supposed to be targeting the house next door in the raid at 0630BST on Tuesday.

A Merseyside Police spokesman said officers had apologised to Mrs Cotton, 53, and her husband, Brian, and would meet the cost of repairing the door.

Flattop, that story will definitely win some kind of award at the next conversation-stoppers competition. But I was actually going to turn this into a musical thread, with a round that I learned from Lani Herrmann of California:

I sat next to the Duchess at tea
It was worse than I thought it would be
Her rumblings abdominal
Were simply phenomenal
And everyone thought it was me

As that Zootechnie article implied, I believe that most of the methane produced by a cow or other ruminant comes to the surface, so to speak, when the animal 'burps' up a cud for re-chewing. If you have ever been close enough to its mouth to smell the gas when it happened, you'll know what I mean.

Some of you may have heard/read of the phenomenon of lighting the gas from a stuck distended stomach ('stuck' as in pierced). It's very real. Sometimes when veterinarians performed the minor surgery they went the extra step for the benefit of awestricken children.

I don't know how far the flame would go but 150 feet or more sounds definitely apocryphal. What I have heard of was perhaps 3.5 feet, although I imagine the end tip of the flame would not be visible.

Duckboots here, too lazy to change cookies.

Flattop, wash your mouth out with soap, and then go lick those chickens again. I thought that "well licked chickens" was a typo. Apparently not. Now just calm down or you'll get no dinner.

flattop... the most amazing thing about dogcrap is its ability for delayed attack. You can be ambushed in the morning and not know it until you're sitting at your desk after coffee break, wondering if one of your co-workers is experiencing gastric distress. Completely demoralizing!

Yeah. The war of 1812 was another one that really didn't go terribly well (if you consider its original main objective: to take Canada, then called British North America), but it was hailed as a great victory. Mind you, it wasn't the complete and utter failure that Vietnam was...

I think flattop was just trying to screw around with our minds or provoke some sort of immoderate response.

My big disappointment was discovering that this thread had nothing to do with Bob Dylan.

Actually, I think Dylan stepped in a pile of Old English Sheepdog poop right before his Albert Hall appearance in 1966. That's why he looks so uncomfortable and cranky in Don't Look Back.

I thought it was never declared a war; "just" a Conflict.

BTW don't cows have 4 stomachs? Alex Trebek said so on a recent Jeopardy! show.

So what happens if you give a cow some of that Japanese beer from Song Challenge! part 28?

Sharon, it doesn't bear thinking about.

Yeah, the war of 1812 was another great American victory. Or would have been, if the Canadians had only KEPT Detroit.

Yes indeed, I think we need to find a way to collect expelled methane and use it for fuel.

It seems to me that I have heard that people in the early days of gas lighting, actually did use methane. I will have to check that out.

I don't want to prolong this thread (well, perhaps just keep the (methane) flame alive till Spaw gets out of hospital!) but I read yesterday that New Zealand has had a proposal to tax farmers per head of cattle, sheep, whatever, as a global warming tax on methane emissions! Wait till the IRS get to Cletus and the Reg boys!

Beans, beans, the energy fruit
The more you eat, the more you scoot
The more you scoot, the farther you go
So eat your beans, they're good you know.


Beans, beans, they're good for your heart
And getting earth friendly cars to start
If that's not enough, it's fun to fart
So eat some beans (and then go over to flattop's house and ambush some joggers with dog shit or jump out from the bushes at them and make rude noises or something... )

What the hell, right?

First, "blow me down" doesn't refer to wind blowing sailors off decks, but knocking them down with a fist or a belay-pin as a means of discipline and incentive, I believe. It has nothing to do with oral exercises on strange locations. Following from a page about the old shanty: "Blow the Man Down was originally a halyard shanty. Law on the high seas was basically rule with a Fist, and "Blow" refers to knocking a man down with a fist, belaying pin or capstan bar. Chief Mates in Western Ocean ships were known as "blowers", second mates as "strikers" and third mates as "greasers". "

Though Spaw is most renowned for flatus
We know, at heart, he doesn't hate us.
And the deed for which he'll greatly rate us
Is letting Spaw's flatus ablate us!

Billy Connelly Story: Queen Elizabeth was in A horse Drawn Coach with the visiting King of Tonga. One of the horses farrrrrrrrted loudly & long. The Queen said, Oh I'm sorry! The King said, "I thought it was the horse."

Well, so did I! In fact didn't you even SAY it was a horse?? Why was she apologizing for the horse? Why kind of a Quee is going to go around apologizing for the digestive processes of farm animals? I mean, what, didn't they have anything to TALK about? Or were they both so darned awestruck each by the others' Majesty that they dodn't want to communicate anything for feare of disrupting the Royal Tranquility?? What the hell -- do we really want such darned fragile beings as our Monarchs?

I am sure Tonga is not a hotspot of news, but anyone with half a brain could at least keep her Royal Humility laugjing overe the differences!! And it was the horse anyway!!! For that matter why didn't HE apologize for the horse, seeing that he was the only one who recognized the horse fart!!

She evidently thought she'd had something to do with the sound effect. No I have heard of stiff upper lips, and people acting frozen from the neck up and so on, but I don't believe I have ever met a human being so benumbed by their own circumstances that they could not detect the passage of a horse-sized fart from their very own internal cavities!!! Well perhaps she honestly believe that she had no such cavities due to her majestic legacy? Sort of a residual of the old Divine Right days?

Oh, where is Mark Twain when we really NEED him??

A
