We've all heard rumours of what happens if you light a fart - you explode, your rectum suffers burning - but what really happens if you light a fart? Has anone ever been witness to someone lighting a fart? Has anyone actually lit one of their own fats?

You actually can light a fart, it has to be a big one and the lighter has to be close and there's a big risk of being caught on fire, but it can be done.

ok.... you can't really light your own farts on fire. only cows farts will ignite because of high levels of methane in their ass.

Yes, I've done it. All that happens is that a little blue flame burns for a second or so and that's it.

One of my science teacher says it does work, but just make sure your wearing pants or at least underware, or the flame will go up your ass.....at least that's what he told me

Alright people, here's the facts on lighting farts.

Not everyone has methane in their farts, but I think 1 in 4 or 1 in 5 people DO. If you're one of these lucky people you can light your farts. I worked with a guy who could do this. He would keep his pants on, sit in a chair and lift his legs up as high as he could so his ass was sitting out as he was sitting there, then he'd light his lighter and hold it near his pants and let them rip. One of them almost burned his face because the flame was so big! I think depending on what he ate it would vary the size of the flames. I think he drank a lot of beer and stuff. I think once his pants kinda caught on fire a little, but he just patted it out. I wouldn't try it bare assed, especially if you have ass hair because it won't be there for long if you light one.

So yes, some people can light their farts!

NO NO NO, bare ass will burn your ball sack. I remember listening to love line and adam corola(sp, guy from manshow) would light his farts during the show. I forgot how they got to it, but he said never go bare assed, because it will singe your hair and hurt your ass skin. I imagine if this hits ball sack hair it would hit ball sack skin.

Adam did say that jeans were best and worst were pajamas, and it will not work well if you were formal pants, like church pants.

It's true. I was working across Canada with some buddies and one night the subject came up. We had just finished supper and Kevin needed to take a dump. He said he felt a fart coming on, so before he hit the can he took his lighter and said watch this. With the lights out and his shorts still on he broke wind and flicked the lighter. Ha! A pale blue flame shot out of his ass about a foot. The funny part was he must have been leaking a bit of gas afterwards because it looked like the seat of his shorts was still burning. We all had a good laugh that night.

I have lit a fart. It was a bit warm around that area when it lit up, all that stuff about burning your ass is an urban legend, try it, it is fun to see a huge flame kinda bust out.
