I know this is an odd question but my DH asked me if I thought if farts catch on fire and no I am not a troll obviously I am using my name. Just wondered what I should say to him has anyone tried it or know someone who has ?

  • The gas coming out of your butt WILL ignite and can seriously burn you. Havnt you watched MythBusters?? LOLOL And a few movies, and I saw a few dummy's do it in College.

  • I thought every male in America has tried this at summer camp.
    I wouldn't let the ol man try it if he is a little hairy down there.
    Farts are methane and methane is highly combustible. I suggest Youtube for fun tonight.

  • Yes, my very uncouth cousin demonstrated this by holding a lighter behind him and POOF -- it will -- but the flame can also travel backwards to where the gas was expelled from

  • I saw someone do it once. It's true. And pretty awesome, if you have no attachment to the person doing it and so aren't scared shitless (no pun intended) that he'll hurt himself.

  • I think they did an mythbusters episode on that, check out

  • Guys always do that. it happens I guess. But I haven't devoted too much time to thinking about it and wondering if it is true. Not really that interesting.
