Farting Survey Results

Category VIII
C'mon Baby Light my Fire!

About three-quarters of the men surveyed indicate that they have considered lighting their farts. They may not have actually done it, or tried it, but they have thought about it.

Close to half of the men surveyed have attempted to light their farts. From these results, we can conclude that 2 of every 5 men have attempted lighting their farts. This contradicts a previous survey indicating that only 12% have lit their farts. We feel that these results are more accurate because the responses are anonymous. The other survey to which we refer was conducted in person. Some men may not admit to a person face-to-face that they have lit their farts. The large majority of men that have attempted to light their farts were able to successfully burn their farts. The other 17% may not have attempted to ignite enough gas, or their diet is not conducive to enough of a flammable mixture of gasses in their farts.

It appears that most men's farts burn with a blue flame. This is due to the methane present in farts. Additionally, we also produce hydrogen which burns with a hard yellow flame. Yellow flame was the second most common flame color. We all produce different mixtures of these gases which produce many different colors when ignited. Men reported 33 different colors, but only the top 15 were worth mentioning.

Lighting farts can be very dangerous. About a third of the men that admit lighting their farts admit getting some type of burn. About half of these burns consist of just singing of hair. 34% of these burns consist of burning a hole in one's underwear, and 22% are unfortunate enough to burn their butts.


Only 16% of the men surveyed were brave enough to light somebody else's fart. Most of these lit farts came from friends.

About half of the men surveyed admit seeing somebody light a fart in real life. Most of these men witnessed a friend lighting a fart. In conclusion, it seems that fart lighting is mostly something done around friends, not family.
