The Straight Dope features a few articles this week with a common theme.
http://www.straightdope.com/

my favorite has to be the following question.

Dear Cecil:

Some background. When I was a kid growing up in the late 50s-early 60s, one of the things we used to do was induce ourselves to fart by sticking the nozzle of a bicycle hand pump into our behinds and giving ourselves several pumps of air. We would then get close to another kid and open the floodgate. Although the scent wasn’t potent, the sound was still funny. After we’d done this a few times, we learned to generate different kinds of sounds, ranging from a sudden burst like a sonic boom to high-pitched sound like that of an out-of-tune trumpet.

Now my question. I heard that some kids or maybe grown-ups got daring and instead of a hand pump used a compressed air hose. The sudden injection of high-pressure gas at hundreds of pounds per square inch into the intestines caused rupture and internal bleeding. I heard there were documented cases of deaths from this type of dangerous entertainment. Tell me it’s not true!—Bill Sabalburo, San Juan, La Union, Philippines

On a side note, I cannot believe that guy had the guts to use his name..if that is indeed his real name. Then again, I guess if you have the guts to stick a bike pump up your arse….. LOL

to be fair Maegan, I used to know a girl who would put her legs behind her head and flex causing her to quife, she thought it quite hilarious and would perform this stunt often. Granted, this is not as depraved as the operation mentioned above but honestly, I am pretty sure if this girl could have accomplished the same feat, she would have.

Someone is selling a Poo-shaping machine on E-bay which you insert into your ass in order to, er, mould your poo into various shapes, how awful!
