Genius Students Create Fart Smell-O-Meter

fart-machine

So, apparently, there is a scientific way to measure the deathly odor of you gas. I always sort of wondered how my farts compared to everyone elses. I mean, I know everyone freaks out when I fart in a car, threatening to jump out onto the pavement passing at a considerable rate below, and then there was the one guy that actually did jump. I mean, yeah, it’s raunchy, but worth death, really? Come oooonnn.

Anyway, two Cornell students took it upon themselves to great their very own fart-o-meter, measuring and comparing the stankity stank of your fartsy wartsies. A “slight perturbance” in the air sets the fart machine to work, measuring the three pillars of fartdom ranking: stench, temperature and sound. Can you say “best senior project ever?”

  2. Perhaps it could be marketed to the Honolulu City Council…
