Admit it. You've always wanted to know whether farts can carry germs.
Beans. They are delicious. And great for you too. One of the staples of the mediterranean diet. Sure, they have some resounding side effects, but nobody is perfect. This cute video explains the science behind farts. Watch it and learn—because farts are always great table conversation.
Finally, a way to simultaneously make watching the floor routine bearable and satisfy the humors of the 9-year-old in all of us. Come to think of it, most every Olympic event could benefit from a flatulent overdub. Either that or get the MST3K guys to provide commentary.
