I had heard the term "old fart" used disparagingly since as far back as I can remember but I didn't know why "old and "fart" went together but I was never short on imagination. My *final conclusion* as a kid of about six or seven was the result recalling a kind of "fecal" odor that I often smelled when my granduncle (Who was *very* close to me and took me absolutely everywhere with him right up until his death -- just one week before my 9th birthday.) stopped to chat up some rather elderly men, some about his age, most were older. Although my granduncle himself had no such odor I suddenly had the thought that when people got very old, especially men, they couldn't control their bowels very well and no longer could wipe their bums very effectively.Thus, the term "old fart" suddenly *made sense* to me!
I believed this for a very long time and I still don't know the *actual* origin of the term, "old fart."
I used to think farting was actually a semi transparent light brownish gas or that mustard gas was the same thing. Sort of like smoking passing through your jeans whenever it happens. Also thought it was poisonous for a while.
my aunt told me i did this when i was little and she was babysitting me. i was sitting on the toilet and i farted and then i said oops excuse me, my potty burped.
I used to believe that if you held a fart in long enough it would come out as a burp.
Once my brother said if you ate too much chicken you would fart every day ten times more than you usually would.
When I was 3 my friend told me that if you ate a bigmac from Mcdonalds it would make you fart so bad you would start flying and then you would go to space and you would have to stay there forever.I actualy believed it! I was afraid of eating anything from there for a while.
I thought that when people farted and I breathed I'd get the farting-gasses inside me and get sick.
A day later I got REALLY sick, but that's another story...
when i was a kid i thought that when you farted you lost air. So whenever i farted i ran around gasping for air
When I was a little kid I beleived that in order for no one to know that I farted, I had to smell it all before any else did. So after I farted I go snffing up all the scent I could find, needless to say, I could never get to all of it quick enough...someone always got the last little bit that I missed!
When I was about 7, I would always hang out at my cousins house on the weekends, and (Im not sure why) I belived that (little) Chinese people lived in my butt. Whenever I farted, I would say,"Hey! there shooting fireworks again! I wish I could see them!"
When my daughter was really little, 3 or so, she was strapped into her car seat in the back of our SUV. I noticed she was having a pretty bad case of gas and I asked aloud, "Where is all your gas coming from?" Never expecting an answer I just about fell over when a tiny voice from the rear answered, "I dunno. The gas station?"
when i was younger... i used to cry every time i would fart... b/c my friend told me once, that if you farted too much... you would lose all the air inside of you-- and deflate lke a big balloon.
when I was young I used to believe that underwear was a filter for farts. so then I thought that if I didn't wear any underwear they could smell worse. then I decided to play a joke on my brothers. so one day my brothers were in the living room watching TV. I decided not to wear any underwear, just my pants and I started running in circles and farting really hard and loud in the living room with my brothers in it so they could smell it. I had eaten a can of beans that day. And I kept saying, my farts are not filtered. but then, to my surprise, one of the farts came out wet and from that day on I always wore a pair.
when i was little my unkle tony(who is funny but really discusting) told my that farts were magical and to put them in a jar. well i did and i actully pooped in it once!
when i was little my dad told me that if i farted on the fire it would blow up so i always tried it and he would yell "BOOM" and it would scare me half to death
My grandmother told my father when he was young that whenever you farted, a "pooter tail" came out of your butt, which was what made the sound. He would back up to a mirror and try to see the pooter tail for years! He told me this when I was young enough to believe in it (and not realize that his mother was messing with him), so I started doing it! I never saw the pooter tail either, but I always imagined it to be a long, skinny flesh colored tube with an orchid at the end of it. The tradition continues!
When I was five, I heard a joke (I can't remember it now) but the punchline was that someone farted and blew up a house. For a long time I was afraid to fart because I thought I would blow wherever I was up!
When I was little and farted in bed my mum told me to "take big sniffs - it will soon go away" yuk.
When my daughter was two, she passed gas, and with this surprised look on her face, announced "My bottom burped"!
When i was about 5, my mom farted in front of me (as she always does) and jokingly said "bad dog" to our dog under the table, as if it was him who farted. but i thought she was saying it because my dog somehow had the power to make her fart and from then on whenever i had to fart i'd go and yell at Rover.
