Today I am wondering how people deal with the problems of trhe above in social situations. I fart quite a lot, I think because I eat quite a lot of sh*t and tend to eat it at one sitting so I do produce some pretty gross smells. I try to ensure they are quiet and then just look faintly and politely disgusted and therefore pin the blame on another. I don't burp much, surprising as I drink quite a lot of diet coke. I do make quite a few gurgly sort of noises, from my stomach. I just smile and if one was particularly loud say "oops, sorry, must be hungry!"
