A: Pass gas.

  1. The average person releases gas 14 times per day or 17 quadrillion times over the course of your life. And vegetarians do it more than the rest of us.
  2. That’s about 16 ounces of gas each day or two cans of Coke.
  3. 99% of it is odorless. It’s just the 1% from sulfur bi-products you have to worry about  aka, hydrogen sulfide.
  4. Women do it as much as men. No matter how much it may seem different, women are just as gassy, and release the same amount.
  5. It travels at 10 feet per second. Remember that the next time you try to crop-dust in some discreet away.  Not gonna happen.
  6. You do it even after you die. Dead bodies have been known to release gas that way for up to three hours after death.
