🤢 A column writer took the time and went down the rabbit (butt) hole to count how many farts can kill. The writer found out that even wearing a mask, around 605 farts can kill a person. But not because farts are stinky, but because it’s suffocating.

😮‍💨 Nitrogen, methane and CO2 is mainly what your average fart contains. These are all choking air, in case you didn’t know. Once you suck too much of these in your lungs, you won’t be able to breathe.

🔫 How much is too much? Again, around 605 farts is lethal. If you have a target that you want to put in your gas chamber, the amount might not be crazy enough. I suggest taking some protein powder. For those of you who don’t know, protein scoots right down to your colon, which results in your body producing hydrogen sulfide gas. (aka that sulfur-ry, rotten egg smell)
