Farting On A Plane

From Durdge comes word of a plane that had to make an unscheduled landing,

after passengers reported smelling struck matches, said Lynne Lowrance, a spokeswoman for the Nashville International Airport Authority.

Why did they smell burning matches?

The FBI questioned a passenger who admitted she struck the matches in an attempt to conceal body odor, Lowrance said. The woman lives near Dallas and has a medical condition.

Luckily she wasn’t charged.

“American has banned her for a long time,” Lowrance said.

She was not charged but could have been. While it is legal to bring as many as four books of paper safety matches onto an aircraft, it is illegal to strike a match in an airplane, Lowrance said.

So what are some conditions that cause excessive flatulence? Well – IBS, any sort of malabsorption problem such as celiac or a disaccharidase deficiency such as lactase deficiency, just an infection, or actually even pancreatic disease.
