10 Facts about Fart You Did Not Know

Farts are a natural by-product of digestion. The outlet of air, which is often smelly, makes people laugh, cover their noses etc. But there are several other facts about farts that most people don’t know about.

This article shows the top 10 unknown facts about farts. So sit tight and enjoy reading!

1. Men fart more than women.

Studies have shown that the frequency of farting in men is much more than that in females. Keep this in mind the next time you accuse a female about farting.

2. The original meaning of Fart was to send forth as wind from the anus.

This term “fart” was probably coined in the year 1632. To think that people called it the “wind” shows the power of farts in those years.

3. Number of farts

You are probably not going to believe this, and most people will claim this is not true. But science has shown that on an average, a person farts 14 times per day.

4. Amount of farts everyday

Have you ever wondered how many farts you have every day? On an average, a person farts enough every day to fill up a balloon. Keep this mind the next time you think of decorating your house with balloons during any event!

5. Farting shows your digestive system is working fine

Only when your digestive system is healthy, you will fart. So farting is actually a sign that your intestines are in good working condition. So keep this in mind the next time you fart.

6. Inhaling farts

People might think this is weird, but according to recent studies, inhaling farts is actually quite healthy. Farts contain hydrogen sulphide, which when inhaled can reduce mitochondrial damage.

7. Women’s farts smell more

Studies have shown that though the frequency of farts in women is much less than that of men, their farts have more foul smell than males, mainly due to increased amount of hydrogen sulfide.

8. Speed of farts

Farts can move at a speed of 10 feet per second, which is actually much faster than the maximum speed at which Usain Bolt has ever ran.

9. Tighter anus

Tighter the anus, tighter will be the outer sphincter, and since this will restrict the fart outlet, the fart will create a louder noise.

10. Gum and Soda can increase someone’s farting

Since these two ingredients increase your chances of farting, it’s better to reduce your consumption of gum and switch to water instead of soda.

15 Most Extreme Punishments For Crimes Around The World

Various forms of punishments have been adopted over the ages. Some of them are quite extreme and were the only means punishment in the earlier time. However, it is shocking to know that some of these extreme punishments are still prevalent today. These are practised in countries all over the world. The list below consists of the top 15 extreme punishments.

1. Death By Burning

ISIS (Islamic State Of Iraq and Levant) burned a Jordanian pilot to death after he crashed his plane in Syria. Even more extreme is the fact that the entire incident was captured via camera, and then posted on the Internet.

2. Medically Supervised Caning

This punishment became popular when Michael P Fay had to face 6 strikes of cane for vandalism in Singapore. This is also popular in other countries such as Malaysia, Zimbabwe etc. Bleeding is common during caning, so a doctor is present nearby to take care of infections.

3. Death Via Boiling

Another gruesome method for killing people is by putting them into boiling liquids such as water, oil etc. This method was widely used in ancient times. Recently, in 2002, two prisoners in Uzbekistan prison had to face this punishment.

4. Blinding by chemicals

A man from Iran was captured after he threw acid towards a woman who rejected him. He blinded her and completely ruined her appearance in the process. For his punishment, he was also blinded using strong hydrochloric acid.

5. Chemical Castration

The most common form of punishment for pedophiles, chemical castration has become quite popular in countries like Poland, UK, and certain parts of USA. Offenders who have committed crime before or have abused pre-teen children are subject to such harsh punishments.

6. Cutting Off Hand

This is more prevalent in countries like Nigeria, Saudia Arabia and Somalia, where Sharia Law is the basis of the legal laws. The Sharia Law stated the punishment for theft or robbery is removal of a hand, or sometime, a foot as well.

7. Stoning to death

This is most common for various crimes like homosexuality and adultery, which are illegal in countries like Pakistan, Nigeria and Iran. The law even states what stones should be used for stoning. The penal code states that stones should be sufficiently big to cause immense pain but no cause death in one strike.

8. Hanging

One of the most popular forms of punishments in India, Afghanistan and Iran, this became popular when Saddam Hussain was hanged. It is also used for common people and not exclusive to dictators only.

9. Public Flogging

This is popular in Pakistan. The back of the person is flogged usually with a leather belt or strap.

10. Electrocuting To Death

This was used in the 20th century since this was considered to give a painless death within seconds. Unfortunately, that didn’t turn out to be true, and the person had to experience immense pain during its execution. However, that didn’t ban this method since it is still used for capital punishment in the USA. In fact, it was recently used in Virginia in 2013.

11. Death Using Injections

This has become popular in China and America. It is supposed to be the best painless way for executing a criminal, but that is far from truth. Three injections are involved – one is used as anaesthetics, the second one for paralysis while the third and the ultimate one kills the heart.
The procedure would have been quite painful if not for the first injection. The problem is that many prisoners are drug users, hence finding a vein to inject these is quite difficult. Also, pharmaceutical companies have refused to provide these drugs, hence those provided are of poor quality. If the first one isn’t properly injected, it will not be effective. However, the 2nd and 3rd ones will still work even if not injected into the veins. Hence, they feel immense pain and various side effects such as skin burn.

12. Removing an eye

An Indian was sentenced to this punishment in Saudi Arabia after he blinded a citizen during an argument. His eye was removed as a punishment. These kinds of punishments are possible due to the Sharia Law in Saudi Arabia.

13. Beheading

Still prevalent in Saudi Arabia, it is the second most popular punishment after crucifixion. If someone is given both, then first he or she is beheaded and then her body is crucified in the public for others to see how cruel the punishments can be.

14 Death by inhalation of poisonous gas

These used to be popular in the USA a couple of years ago. Also used in India, China and Saudi Arabia, these are mostly used for experiments nowadays.

15. Firing chamber

This is used in Somalia, China, Utah and Indonesia, although there are certain variations. In China, the family of the criminal will have to pay the cost of the bullets. In Indonesia, if the initial round doesn’t cause death, the commanders have to shoot in the head. In the USA, some of the guns are filled with blanks, hence no shooter knows who killed him.
