I Finally Did It! I Lit My Fart On fire!!!

Fart lightning or pyroflatulence is the practice of igniting the gases produced by human flatulence, often producing a flame of a blue hue, hence the act being known colloquially as a “blue angel”, or in Australia, a “blue flame”. The fact that flatus is flammable, and the actual combustion of it through this practice, gives rise to much humourous derivation. Other colors of flame such as orange and yellow are possible with the color dependent on the mixture of gases formed in the colon.

Although there is little scientific discourse on the combustive properties of flatus, there are many anecdotal accounts of flatus ignition and the activity has increasingly found its way into popular culture with references in comic routines, movies, and television; including cartoons.

Surprise Twins In Delivery Room?

Everyone is in shock. It’s intense to expect one baby and get two. I am so proud of my friend and so so so glad that she never had a u/s. If she had had one, she’d never have been able to have a home birth, or to go to 41 weeks, 3 days. . . the only downside medically is that since she didn’t know she was having twins, she didn’t eat extra protein or anything like that. She was spilling a lot of protein into her urine at the end. The babies are on the smaller side–6-13 and a little over 5 lbs. My friend lost a lot of blood, but she is seeming like she’s getting better.

Cocaine Party? Why Am I Not Invited?

Charlie Sheen doesn’t have a care in the world! He’s not letting a jaunt in NYC with a hooker bring him down! He also has no problem with getting cocaine all over his face—more on that later.

The actor returned to work to shoot a cameo in the movie She Wants Me, and told reporters he’s “excellent” when asked how he was faring following the embarrassing NYC hotel room incident.

“I did great!” Sheen added, referring to his bit part in the movie.

Now to the coke details—apparently Charlie was found naked with cocaine all over his face in a restaurant bathroom the same night he went nuts on his escort at the Plaza.

Christmas Is Cancelled This Year

Yeah, it’s early but I figure if some numbnut without anything else important to do can sit in line for Black Friday since LAST WEEK, the least I can do is start a little early…

Right Now You Are Judging Another Human Being. Stop It.

As long as male behavior is taken to be the norm, there can be no serious questioning of male traits and behavior. A norm is by definition a standard for judging; it is not itself subject to judgment.

Maybe Some Day

Joint is a slang term for a cigarette rolled using cannabis. Rolling papers are the most common rolling medium among industrialized countries, however brown paper, cigarettes with the tobacco removed, and newspaper are commonly used in developing countries. Modern papers are now made from a wide variety of materials including rice, hemp, and flax. One of the newest innovations in joint-rolling technology has been the introduction of transparent cellulose-based rolling papers.

A joint can range in size, typically containing between 250–750 mg net weight of cannabis and/or fillers.
