The Kickstarter To End All Kickstarters

Let’s face it, not everyone needs a fancy smartwatch or another Zach Braff movie.  However, everyone farts, and for some people, it’s an uncontrollable problem that drives them away from social interactions.  One solution is to keep a food journal to keep track of the foods you eat, along with how many times you pass gas after.  But why manually track your flatulence when you can use CH4, a wearable that senses noxious gases that come out of your butt.  CH4 pairs with smartphone app that has users enter the foods they eat for every meal.  The device will sense every time you cut the cheese, and tell you which foods affect you the most.  The goal is to weed out those foods and hopefully lead you to a better life.  What the site doesn’t say is if CH4 can detect the intensity of each fart.  Without that feature, I don’t know if I’d spend $120 on this gadget.  I think I’ll just buy a bunch of cricket flour, thanks.

    I’m so upset that I never thought of “laughing inside a cardboard box” as a first date activity.

    I am 100% sure I’ve told this story before, but I love it lots and it is very relevant to this product.

    When I was a fancy pantsed finance analyst, I was giving a presentation to the heads of the Canadian and US branches as well as the president of the company and a few other big wigs. I had made this cabbage and white bean soup and I’d been eating it for a week with no increase in farts so I thought I was safe, when suddenly I had to rip the most intense fart of my life. I was squeezing my ass cheeks so hard trying to keep it in that it came out like a kettle whistle! Nobody could figure out what the noise was or where it had come from, and thankfully it wasn’t a stinker so it remained a mystery for everyone but me. Point is, you don’t need this product at all, you just need BUNS OF STEEL, apparently.

      I have a slight case of IBS and my honest to god worst fear is I’m going to let one rip while I’m teaching. I’ll lose those freshmen and I will never get them back, I know it.

      LOL this story is the best. I also have used this method, but I’ve never experienced the Kettle Whistle Effect®

    • Wallflower says:

      OMG I love this story so much! But how did you not give it away by turning red in the face or laughing?!?! I could not have done it. And I’m in totally agreement (per usual) with artdork. I have IBS as well and if I fart in front of 6th graders it is OVER!

    These little farting circles remind me of how cute I find the bladder in the Myrbetriq commerial to be.
