The following is part of an actual conversation that took place between Bevan, Sid and I while the three of us were lounging around the house on Sunday afternoon.
Sidney: Did you know that every day five hundred people fart?
Me: That sounds inaccurate.
Sidney: Why? Is it more or less?
Sidney: Oh, I meant a thousand.
Me: Where do you get your information?
Sidney: A library book.
Bevan (from the kitchen): There are 1.6 trillion human farts every day, many of which result in accidents. I just looked it up.
Sidney: What does he mean by accidents?
Me: Probably people who fart while rollerblading.
