Does your wife do this too? What Japan Thinks: “Trivia no Izumi (Fount/Spring of Trivia) outdid itself tonight, with a survey to find out when people who had been married for three years first heard their wife pass gas!”
In the past there has been talk about information overload – the difficulties of sifting through all available information to get at the good stuff. I think though that we really do like to find a lot of the garbage that’s out there – like this silly poll from some trivia show in Japan.
For the record, my sister-in-law doesn’t fit into any of the categories; she believes in pre-marital flatulence. Maybe it’s because she married a Canadian?
LCSH does have the headings Flatulence and Gastrointestinal gas and I think I would class them under 612.3/2 (Stomach and gastric secretions) since Belching is also found under that number.
