Gas...or something

Bloat. I guess I need something to help nature combat acidity.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Wife brought home some "Gas Relief" pills for me.

They worked great. I farted all day long.

She complained and complained. Claimed that they didn't work because I was "still farting".

Had to explain to her how gas relief pills work. They don't eliminate the gas. They coalesce the bubbles, so that your farts come out faster, longer, and louder. Once the fart is out, the pain from it is over, thus the "relief".

Dear, the "relief" isn't for you. It's for me. :D :D :D :D

She doesn't like science. :(

Perhaps a theological angle, then?
The Daily Beast wrote:Somewhat counter-intuitively, farting has a spiritual side. Manichaeism, a dualistic religion popular in late antiquity that at one time counted St. Augustine among its members, actually held that farts were the act of freeing divine “light” from the body. Manichaeism may have been, as scholar Robin Lane Fox has noted, “the only world religion to have believed in the redemptive power of farts,” but they weren’t the only ancient group to give the phenomenon a great deal of thought. In addition to laying the foundations of trigonometry, the philosopher Pythagoras was concerned that a person might fart out his or her soul. As classicist Andrew Fenton wryly observed, this can explain why they steered clear of beans. Given that the soul (pneuma) was breath and a fart a kind of breath, the explanation makes a lot of sense.

Plenty of proof of that. Just go to any Wal-Mart.
Nice things? Hell no!
