  • Did you go to school? There is no fecal matter in methane gas (a fart).

  • HA! Had to laugh out loud when I read that one........good question though. I can't believe I googled for an answer! :) Here's what I found:
    "Farts actually have substance, in the shapes of gaseous molecules, which in passing through the bath water, dissolve into the liquid. On contact with the skin, they form a microscopically thin layer, and the bather emerges from the bath with it adhering to him/her. Upon drying him/herself, the 'fart' is then transferred to the towel, which in turn is transferred to the next person to use it.
    The moral, if you know someone who farts in the bath, don't use his/her towel. But baths should be avoided, because farts cannot be. Take a shower!"

  • It doesn't even matter whether there is or isn't poo in a fart and I don't see why some people have to get so bit*hy about stuff but anyways I personally would not want to rub water that I had farted in on my face but that's just me.

  • what a sick biotch. why would u even ask somethin liek that? I wouldnt be telling poeple on the internet about passing gas in the batthub!1!!

  • LOL that is funny! In nursing school we learned that with every passing of gas that there is microscopic fecal matter released. This is important to know because it can spread disease.

    Man think of all those people that cup their farts!

    If it is your own fart though, why worry about it. And to those who say they don't fart in the tub.... have you ever been pregnant cuz since I have been pregnant I feel as though I can power my house off of all the gas I expel.

  • To the first person who answered: Didn't you notice the way she spells? There's the answer to your question--and the nurse blew your theory about no fecal matter in methane gas right out of the water(pun intended)!!!

  • yea Avasmommy everyone knows theirs fecal matter anywhere where a butt hole is...It's in your panties...In the bathroom when you flush the toilet (That's why they tell you to close it when you flush) so did you go to school?

  • She only spelled "that" wrong and i'm pretty sure that was because she was typing fast...I've did that before...I've typed "ot" instead of "to" before...It was a common mistake...
