When I was browsing around at youtube.com, I unwittingly found something hilarious. It is about two men sharing the same enclosed room (They are seemingly sitting in a restaurant or in a diner, sharing the same table). The one on the left is puffing a smoke from his cigarette while the other one is struggling with his flatulence after having some meal. Maybe because the flatus is being pushed all the way down by the new occupants in his tummy, the man cannot hold his fart anymore and he eventually lets go a big fart in the middle of the meal! LOL!
I am a smoker myself, but I realise that it is not good to give the people of non-smokers the secondhand smoke from my cigarettes, so now I have made up my mind that I have to phase out my smoking habit especially when I am in the crowd.
What about the farting habit?? Yes I have a habit to pass the gas at will since I am an easygoing farter. LOL. But of course when I am in the crowd I would always try to make my farts as inaudible as I can though it was not always successful. Hehehe.... The safest place to let go a fart in my workplace is at the security post! My fellow securitymen would not complain since the post is also their safest shelter to pass the gas (apart from the toilet or the restrooms, of course!).
The wisdom of the video display is obvious. It is trying to show us that if you are annoyed by someone who is farting near you, the people around you (especially the non-smokers) are also likely annoyed by the secondhand smoke from your cigarette! And one more thing we have to keep in mind that gas from the fart is not as harmful as the smoke from a cigarette, though the gas from our farts is sometimes odourous due to the sulphurous compound produced in the gas.
Ok, I hope you can enjoy the video, but for those who cannot take the video for a decent display I would like to deeply apologise. I understand that in most eastern society, farting is still considered a taboo.
