    Clearly a loss, unless you inhale.

    Vertical farting, upside down farting VS horizontal farting?

    Definitely horizontal if on earth, what if you are in space?

    I think farts are the result of ingesting hard to digest foods. Loss of weight.

    In space, nobody can hear you fart.

    I should think that someone who calls himself woodypusher would be an expert about the thrust effect.

    Bend one knee upwards and extend right hand outwards, making fist to
    reduce rotation. Use of external, flameproof underwear is recommended.

    Since there is no oxygen in space you cant ignite a fart for increased thrust.

    I think it depends upon the size of the person you fart upon, as there is always an equal and opposite reaction.

    You may well get blown into space!

    Why, are you over weight?

    I think the beauty of passing gas is that deaf people can enjoy them too~

    I also take the religious approach it is better to give rather than receive.
