Can you light a fart on fire?
It is possible to light your fart on fire but it can be very dangerous and is very stupid. (not to mention gross)
I didn't think it's possible, so I tried it out and it worked. It is dangerous, so be careful if you are trying it yourself.

Flatulence, or "farts", are expulsions of methane from the bowel,specifically, the large intestines and colon. The methane is abyproduct of the bacteria in the gut that breaks down food. The other type of bodily expulsion of air, known as burping, comesexclusively from the stomach, not the intestin…es. Basically, gasthat comes from your bottom. Farts are when you have intestinal gas that you expel from theopening where you defecate. (MORE)
Most farts are made up of nitrogen, carbon dioxide, hydrogen, and methane. A person who swallows a lot of air might also have some oxygen in their farts. The stink in a fart comes from various sulfur chemicals made by bacteria living in your intestines - hydrogen sulfide and mercaptan are two of the…se.(see related questions) (MORE)
if you are ignorant enough to put a lighter to your butt when you fart, then the gas from the fart will cause a flame to appear. it amazes me that people do that. and no, it wasn't me that experimented this, if that's what you're thinking. my idiot friend tried it out and burnt himself. Idiot.
farts are the most powerful gas to lit on fire but it may cause serious burns
You would burn to death, have you not watched South park?? The South Park scenario is probably a Little exaggerated however you could end up burning parts of your anatomy that you need to sit on. IMPROVED ANSWER South park?? well on youtube there were these guys that were lighting their farts and… nothing really happened! you might burn yourself if you do it without any clothes on nd the fire is touching your skin but if u have clothes on and the fire isn't touching your clothes then you'll be fine! The South Park answer was meant in jest!!!!! (MORE)
The liturgy of "fire and light" may refer to the first part of the ceremonies for Holy Saturday, also known as the Paschal Vigil. These ceremonies begin with a virgin fire that is enkindled to light the Paschal Candle. The Candle represents Christ, the Light of the World as well as symbolizing His R…esurrection and victory over death. The Paschal Vigil ceremonies are usually scheduled for 10pm so that Mass may begin around 12am on Easter Day. The first ceremony is the blessing of the new fire which is kindled with flint and steel. Local fire codes being taken into account, the fire is made outside in front of the church and the congregation proceeds outside to stand around it. Prayers are said by the priest asking for spiritual enlightenment and illuminating grace and grains of incense are blessed and placed into the Candle, which is also blessed. The Paschal candle is then lit from the fire. A procession forms behind the Paschal candle and enters into the Church, which has been darkened for this purpose. The procession pauses three times on its way when "Lumen Christi" or "the light of Christ" is proclaimed by the priest or deacon bearing the candle. At the last "Lumen Christi" the Paschal flame is passed to all of the congregation who have been given tapers for this purpose. When the procession finishes, the Paschal candle is placed in a candle holder in the sanctuary, the Church lights are restored, and the priest or deacon then reads or preferably sings the "Paschale Praeconium" or "Easter Laud", although is popularly known as "The Exsultet". This is an ancient song that tells of man's fall, God's guidance through the centuries and man's redemption by Christ. At the completion of this lengthy song, the congregation extinguishes their tapers, thus ending this part of the Paschal ceremony, the liturgy of fire and light. (MORE)
If you put a lighter behind your butt and you fart,the fire will blow. So yes it is possible
I WOULDN'T DO IT BUT IF YOU WANT TO GO AHEAD NO ONE IS STOPPING YOU! . Here's a thought! While anal flatulation seems to be the grand entertainment for some immature people have you thought that yes, it's possible that gas from the human body can indeed blow a blast if fire if directed in the dir…ection of one's butt! However, it would be wonderful to see you in ER with a scorched behind and possibly (if male) your dangling Christmas decorations burned to a crisp. Be smart and think about the consequences! . honestly now, who gives a flying f*** about consequences?? (MORE)
Hold a match up to your rear end and then let loose.. Be careful though, some people have burnt themselves badly doing this...
It is a slang term for pyroflatulence, the amusing but dangerous practice of igniting the gases produced by human flatulence. .
Yes the methane reacts with the flame causing a burst of fire but if done wrong the fire enters you butt and most likely burns it.
Yes you can catch your farts on fire. It is no myth. Lie on your back with your legs rolled up in a squat and light a match or lighter an inch from your anus and let it rip. Please be sure to do this with flame retardant pants and do not be in close proximity to flammable objects.
absolutely, but only if you hold a match near it, don't try it though because i heard that it can backfire and burn you. because you can get burned (plus idont need one losers)
the methane gas in your toot catches on fire in the air and quickly burns off
A "fart" is the release of gas (mostly methane) from the anal orifice.While a normal and sometimes unavoidable bodily function, the sound and smell associated with "passing gas" is a subject of low humor in many modern societies.There are several dietary suggestions that may reduce emissions. These …include limiting consumption of carbonated drinks (and beer), and of foods (such as beans) that may ferment when undigested in the large intestine. (MORE)
Of course you can light a fart on fire!! You really should try it sometime.
A "fart" is rotten food in the colon waiting to naturally pass out. also it is stinky air that passes through your body like a waste but comes out as a gas
You can burn your skin anus and hair and you can set something else on fire.
No, the ability to breath fire is produced via the lungs and throat. It might be possible to burp fire, though... Anyway, flatulance isn't flammable, even for a dragon.
make sure no one is in the room, find a couch, then muffle in it.If you muffle in it no one will hear it. DO NOT DO THIS IN PUBLICOR WITH FRIENDS!!!
Flatulence is the production of a mixture of gases in the digestive tract of mammals or other animals that are byproducts of the digestion process. Such a mixture of gases is known as flatus, and is expelled from the rectum in a process colloquially referred to as "passing gas" or "farting". Flatus …is brought to the rectum by the same process which causes feces to descend from the large intestine. The noises commonly associated with flatulence are caused by the vibration of the anal sphincter, and occasionally by the closed buttocks. (MORE)
Yes you probably can just don't try in in the locker room, ok? There'll probably be a big explosion.
They don't, usually, as the major component of flatulence is usually carbon dioxide. But sometimes there is sufficient hydrogen, methane or other hydrocarbons to ignite if the flame is sufficiently close to the emission of gas before it disperses and dilutes.
Possible, but not likely. It needs to be an open flame fairly close to the source. It is methane which is very flamable.
Farts - also called flatus (say: flay -tus) or intestinal (say: in- tes -tuh-null) gas - are made of, well, gas! When you eat, you don't swallow just your food. You also swallow air, which contains gases like nitrogen (say: ny -truh-jen) and oxygen (say: ahk -sih-jen). Small amounts of these ga…ses travel through your digestive system as you digest your food. Other gases like hydrogen (say: hy -droh-jen), carbon dioxide (say: kar -bon dy- ahk -side, the gas that makes soda fizzy), and methane (say: meth -ain) are made when food is broken down in the large intestine. All of these gases in the digestive system have to escape somehow, so they come out as farts! Gases are also what can make farts smell bad. Tiny amounts of hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and methane combine with hydrogen sulfide (say: suhl -fide) and ammonia (say: uh- mow -nyuh) in the large intestine to give gas its smell. Phew! All people fart sometimes, whether they live in France, the Fiji islands, or Fresno, California! If you have a dog, you may have even been unlucky enough to have heard (or smelled) Fido farting. Intestinal gas is totally normal, and it's very rare for farting to be a sign that something is wrong in the body. If you want to be less farty, try cutting back on foods like beans, onions, and fried foods. These can release larger amounts of gas as they break down in your body. If you have a lot of gas after you eat ice cream, yogurt, or milk, talk to your parent about it - your body may have a difficult time digesting the natural sugar called lactose , which is found in dairy foods. And don't forget that farting can sometimes be your body's sign that it's time to take a trip to the bathroom. The bathroom is also a good place to go if you're feeling particularly gassy because it's not polite to fart in social settings, like in class or at the dinner table . But don't worry if this happens accidentally. Just remember to say "excuse me" (MORE)
we say marshall but no one noes shut it and marshall made the first light and it was orange so he called it light
If you have farted in public, just gag, cover your nose, look at someone next to you, and say "that was nasty" and blame him/her.
They can't. Fire flows through their body like blood, but they are not able to fart fire.
the fire in dragons belly's that they breathe out of their mouth they can use it as a fire fart and it is powerful than the fire that they breathe out of their mouth ------- Being a figure of the collective human imagination, theoretically dragons could do anything. All it would take would be …a human that decided "Dragons can fart flames" for it to become true (providing that the other humans accepted his view). Although if you want to get technical, according to some nerdy dragon books, inside a dragon (be it their stomach or inside some sort of injecting mechanism in their throat or mouth) is a liquid that ignites upon contact with oxygen. So, for a dragon to fart fire, all it would take is for a dragon to expell some of that liquid from their, ah, nether-regions. VoilÃ ! Flammable farts. Of course, this is just a theory. The "reality" really could be anything. -------- THEY DONT GENIOUS STOP ASKING STUPID QUESTIONS LIKE "What would happen if you ate cement?" YOU WOULD DIE OR DRAGONS CANT BREATH FIRE AHHHH!!!!!!

eat alot of beans,drink sodas, because your a dumb retard for looking up how not to fart! lol hehee!(: LoL.. Buh Bye Now(: Sincerly, Courtney(: "TheBestPersonEver" LoL Sorry(: Im Ran:DoM. (: This is completely wrong. You have to stick needles in your eyeballs.
No. They have fire running in their body like blood, but they cannot, I repeat, CANNOT fart fire.
yes, actually it can fart fire and pee fire at the same time if it tries hard enough.
People fart to release gas building up inside the body. Similar to burping, although since the gas is near the lower area, it exits the rear.
Depends on the intensity of the fart. Methane is technically a flammable gas, but a little bit of beany afterburner isn't going to do much.
Yes it can. If a light bulb breaks, the exposed filament will burn out within a couple of seconds and can ignite something with the spark when the filament breaks. Special bulbs can be made for explosive environments to minimize the risk of ignition, such as lighting at a refueling station. A lig…ht bulb can also be in close proximity to a combustible substance when it is operating and can cause a fire by making the combustible substance too hot. Florescent lights are less likely to cause fires because they run cooler and are safer in hazardous environments where a conventional light bulb would not be good. No. The filament will burn out in milliseconds not seconds and not enough time to ignite anything in a normal atmosphere. Special bulbs are not made for explosive environments it is the fixture that the bulb goes into that have the explosion proof rating. Fluorescent lamps in hazardous environments again are protected by the fixture that they are installed into. If the light bulb breaks the filament will be exposed to oxygen in the air and burn itself open. It is when the light bulb is in close proximity to a combustible substance when it is operating, that a fire hazard becomes a reality. (MORE)
as far as i know, i have never actually heard of a dragon farting fire. technically, most dragons blow fire from their mouths, not their anus.
No. you cant. to prove it, i`ve never seen it, a friend told me about it, just watch a certain episode of myth-busters.
it is and it is not . It produces light but yet is not a light
Yeah man. No- but its is a great way to get burns that will be extremely embarrassing to explain how you got burned THERE. And it stings.
It is flammable and can be lit on fire. This is dangerous and can cause a brun to a sensitive area.
It depends on how close you are and how much gas you produce. If you have a good amount of gas and the fire is close enough then your fart might actually ignite.
yes because there would be a trail of gas or "fart fumes" up your anus and the fire would trail up and burn you on fire inside-out, so in other words "don't be stupid enough to fart on a match or lighter".
Despite the stereotype, no. They have a main circulatory-like system composed of fire, but they cannot fart fire.
3 things are needed for combustion... air, fuel, and a source of ignition. seems you're lacking a source of ignition.
Well, obviously not anywhere that's indoors unless it's inside a fireplace! Most roofed places are dangerous to have a fire. Around children and things such as gasses or gas containing substances are dangerous. Getting your face near a fire can burn your eyes, but to vaguely answer your question OUT…DOORS! AWAY FROM BUILDINGS AND PLACES WHERE YOUR FIRE WILL JUST BE BLOWN OUT. Really anywhere with a high gas content in the air or with highly flamable things around would be a bad idea to light a fire. (MORE)
No. 'To fart', 'I farted' and 'farting' are all terms invented by the CIA to embarrass citizens into distraction when their covert operations released noxious gases. The commonly used term 'silent but deadly' was used to disguise a particularly sinister type of mission emission, in further efforts …to keep the conspiracy underground. (MORE)
Kind of. He can only fart fire after he eats. Though, his farts are flammable. And his fire farts stink as well as burn.
You can make a proper fire fart by making sure the gas is expelled for as long as possible. Immediately after starting, you have to light it straight away.
There are several gases responsible for the fire of combusted farts and usually it is a mixture of one of these gases: carbon dioxide, hydrogen, hydrogen sulfide, methane, nitrogen and oxygen.
This phenomenon is called fart lighting. Information about fart lighting can be found on Wikipedia, Light That Fart, Funny or Die, and many other websites. Videos are also available on YouTube.
