The soundtrack of constipation...

If there's a lot of mist involved, there may be more serious concerns to address first.

Beans, beans,
Are good for your heart.
The more you eat, the more you fart.
The more you fart, the better you feel,
So eat your beans at every meal.

As Bill would say: "It’s all sound and fury, signifying nothing"

Probably destined to be the first 8 year old with a science Nobel prize.

What happens when all other subjects are exhausted.

Whew. I am safe and nobody is impinging on my research - yet. I am working on acoustically characterizing the sound of vomiting. There is that initial gagging (which can last for a while) followed by that gurgle coming from deep in the stomach, followed by the sound of that splash. Nothing like it I say. Stay tuned for further results. Plus you can do a nice simulation of all this, record it on your phone and play it back on the subway - watch all the people jump out of the way.

Yours truly and thank you very much

Time to call for an expert medical opinion - "nursecindy, Code Blue, please report to the blog situation room."

I wonder if a fart and pee album would outsell the frog album in Australia.

How does one apply to be a study matter provider? Asking for a friend.

How could I mist her, when I wasn't even aiming at her?

Acoustics of Urination was an MTV special back in the day.
