It’s just the craziest thing but I’ve noticed that when I lay on my left side I have more wind come out of me the a 69 Dodge. I think I noticed it first sometime last week but I was still kind of in a fog from the pain pills to really pay to much attention. But this last few nights I’m telling ya it’s a fact. Yes I fart just as much as the next guy but when I lay on my left side it must align everything up just right to really let the air flow. Looking on the positive side this could be a good thing. If we’re ever attacked just have me lay down (on my left side) in the back of a Pickup Truck and drive me to the front lines!!! Oh ya, Bring a match...

You're so funny Brooks!
Seriously, lying on one's left side does supposedly line everything in the digestive system up just right. One time a few years back I was having horrible stabbing pains with gas and what I thought felt like a twisted colon. My doc told me to lie on my left side with a heating pad & it actually did get better on its own.
Also, when women are pregnant, we're told (or at least my ob/gyn dr) said to sleep on our left side- it's best for the position of the baby, placenta, all the organs, etc.
So, sleep on your left side and fart away, Brooks- it's probably good for you! :)

Hey Brookie...

One evening a family brings their frail, elderly mother to a nursing
home and leave her, hoping she will be well cared for.

The next morning, the nurses bathe her, feed her a tasty breakfast,
and set her in a chair at a window overlooking a lovely flower garden.

She seems OK, but after a while she slowly starts to lean over
sideways in her chair.

Two attentive nurses immediately rush up to catch her and straighten
her up.

Again she seems OK, but after a while she starts to tilt to the other side.

The nurses rush back and once more bring her back upright.

This goes on all morning.

Later the family arrives to see how the old woman is adjusting to
her new home.

"So Ma, how is it here? Are they treating you all right?" they ask.

"It's pretty nice," she replies. "Except they won't let you fart."

You should fart every time your turn from side to side, front to back, as you release gasses with your body movements. Try it!

fart during yoga makes a lot of sense.

Make sure you give your wife the right side of the bed!

But can you play tunes while you're on your left side??? A symphony perhaps?
I realized I havent't "farted" in a couple of months, does this mean I'm no longer full of SHI@?????

Yes, I noticed I fart with great loudness that lasts a very long time. I had to fart at work this afternoon, so i went to the bathroom and nothing happened. I remembered lying on my side, i get instant relief. i walked out to my car, pretending I needed to grab something from the back seat, layed on my side and Presssssssto, Long long long and and very loud flatulations, similar to a Didgeridoo    Sealed

I'll be 60 in a week, 3 1/2 years from any treatments/cancer surgery, and I still have to walk wide from the crowd during a bout of the put-puts. At least it's controlled enough that I can pick my spots, it feels more a product of ageing than from where I've been, now. Tru is right though, there is a lot of bittersweet feelings that come with these old threads.................................................Dave

I hope he is doing well. 

So many on this thread have passed away, leaving their words of wisdom, even about the good old fart. 

Welcome Boobie. May you be fart free soon.
