Most farts occur when a person is asleep. If you hold in your farts during the day, they’ll likely find their way out while you’re snoozing.

Brazilian Wandering Spider - the most deadly in the world.

The species is deadly and its venom can kill a human in just two hours - but can also give male victims a painful four-hour ****.

All I know is what it said. Though "can" implies it might or it might not as well. Also even if he lives, it's painful...

Though it sounds like they normally don't inject enough venom to kill an adult human.

I think that would make it more painful... as I think the problem is the venom makes TOO MUCH blood flow... so increasing the blood flow even more would raise the likely of pain and killing him...

But hey, if you want you want to try to assuage some of their pain, that's up to you.

Personally, I don't think me or my SO want to be anywhere near ANY spiders... unless, you know... I'm going to get spiderman powers from it (xp)

They say they disagree. Nobody can actually prove their supposition, or even present a convincing persuasion. So far we have blood flow, muscle contractions, air currents, ambient low level noise, and a variety of things that I didn't even bother to remember.

99% of the gas you produce do not smell.
Men and woman fart equally.
Meat causes flatulence since they are high in FODMAPs.
Farts have been clocked at 10 feet/second.

No idea what FODMAPS are and apparently one of these facts is false!No idea which.

That is just a dum thing to say. The only thing you could measure is the speed of sound.

FOD·MAP
noun
plural noun: FODMAPs
one of a group of compounds thought to contribute to the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and similar gastrointestinal disorders. The term is used mainly with reference to a diet that is low in these compounds (which are mainly carbohydrates).
"foods high in FODMAPs include barley, yogurt, apples, apricots, pears, and cauliflower"
~google.com

That line about meat sounds wonky to me. Nutritionists tell us that gas is produced when food is not fully digested, so it is broken down by microbes that produce foul smelling gas. Meat is broken down by acids in the stomach, not microbes in the gut, so if you get gas from meat, you're in a heap o' trouble and the gas is not the worst part of it.

You can put an end to intestinal gas by just eating yogurt every day. The yogurt bacteria crowd out all other organisms, and they only eat lactose, so no gas. Trouble is it is hard as h*ll to know if the yogurt you buy actually has live yogurt bacteria in it.

Speaking again about fodmaps, it is unfortunate that links to meanings don't also link to explanations of derivations. The blurb quoted above is head-thumpingly stupid when compared to related knowledge. Yogurt, for instance, has no connection to gastrointestinal disorders.

I do not think he was abducted by Aliens, also it’s more of a story than a fact.. 😐

Jim Sullivan released his debut album, U.F.O., in 1969 and played to devoted crowds at a regular gig in Malibu, Calif., in the early '70s. Despite hanging out with movie stars, fame eluded him. In 1975, he left Los Angeles, and his wife and son, to head to Nashville; he thought he could catch a break there. But Sullivan never made it to Tennessee — somewhere in the New Mexico desert, he disappeared, never to be seen again.

The mysterious nature of his disappearance is amplified by Jim Sullivan's cryptic lyrics — on U.F.O., he talks about long highways, leaving his family behind and being abducted by aliens in the desert.

"He leaves L.A. in March 1975, and he has $120 in his pocket, so he starts driving in his little VW bug, and 15 hours later, he's outside Santa Rosa, N..M," Matt Sullivan says. "He checks into a local motel. Soon after, his car is found is found 26 miles from the motel, and he's never seen or heard from ever again."

The distance from earth to sun is called an astronomical unit, AU. It happens that the number of AU in a light year is nearly equal to the number of inches in a mile. Imagine the earth to be one inch away from the sun. At this scale the sun is less than one hundredth inch wide, just a speck of dust. The entire solar system would fit within a man's outstretched arms. The nearest star is another speck of dust FOUR MILES away.
