    Maybe they couldn't get to the bathroom in time? Sorry to hear about the people who got sick. It must have been embarrassing.

    It's just about the worst place possible for something like that to happen, and airplane fuselage air is terrible air to breathe; just ask my oncologist who has treated flight attendants.

    I knew someone at Fujitsu who seemed to pride himself on noxious, thundering and office-clearing "air bagels". ;)

    When I was about 6 years old my Mother took me downtown in Chicago to shop. She left me by a table to wait for her. At another table close by about 10 women were grabbing at things on a sale table where no one else would be able to fit in or move up next to the table. All of a sudden a rather large lady stepped up behind them and let a resounding one, Suddenly the table cleared and the large lady stepped up to the table easily as all the other ladies left and she easily sorted through the sale items. Some things you never forget. It was funny!

    My cat is a fart machine and could clear an auditorium full of people in short order. If only it could be harnessed and used for fuel. But I don't think he'd agree with it, you know how cat's are.

    Yeah, I though my cat had a serious wind problem. Until we got a dog :)

    We have a pretty good saying down here which you may find appropriate: SBD. Silent But Deadly.

    Wishing you well.

    As an Animal Control Officer, I bet you have a lot of experience with dogs and cats pootering as you're catching them. :confused:

    We have our 6 year old grandson living with us. Passing gas is a daily occurrence, as is the discussion of their merits.

    Farts are amplified by church pews. ("Make a joyful noise...")

    In the spirit of full disclosure...
    ...I cleared out the pool hall at the Notre Dame student center one night. SBD, indeed!

    There was an update to the link that says it wasn't a passenger's air bagel after all. American Airlines said it was an odor that was causing head aches and nausea for some passengers, but it wasn't "passed gas."

    We have a guy here that's the local Air Raider. We call him Stinky. When I told him that "whistle berries" was a common term for beans back in the Civil War, he thought that was awesome and purposed to call them that from then on.

    We had a cat that would sit by my side every evening for 15 years. Never once did she let off an air biscuit.

    The wifey could learn a lot from that cat.
