Why Farts Follow You

The Phenomena: You fart, just outside of a car or an elevator. When you get in the car or elevator, somehow, the fart smell appears. It has seemingly followed you as if by magic!

Hypothesis: When you fart, a good deal of the heavy matter (particles with the offending smell) stays in your clothing. As you move, sway, or breathe, the heavy matter is released in steady doses over the next few minutes.

The Experiment: Next time you have to fart and are about to get into a car or elevator, get naked. Without your clothes, the heavy matter's release will be unrestricted and the scent will not follow you.

Remember: Only together (and naked) can we discover the truth about farts.
