A Penny For MY Thoughts

We've all heard the old saying, "A penny for your thoughts," but I figured I'd give you some of mine for absolutely nothing.

Beautiful Smelly Planet
Recently, I read that Saturn's moon Titan and Neptune contain methane as their main element. This got me thinking. Doesn't methane smell like farts? Good thing these stinky planets are far from Earth. Then again, with all that's being passed around here, maybe we could grow some beautiful rings around our planet, too.

I looked up methane and farts to see if I was right on my theory. Guess what I learned? There is actually a discipline called flatology or the study of farts. Could you imagine going 
Beautiful Smelly Person
to school to get that education? Imagine if one got a doctorate in flatulence. People study this in med school. I could just see a guy meeting his girlfriend's parents for the first time. "Excuse me? You do what for a living?"

I guess it could be worse. I knew a penis doctor who kept specimens in a jar to let his daughter's dates know to behave themselves.

Anyway, back to Neptune. It sure is a beautiful smelly planet. Kind of reminds me of Robert Pattinson--very good looking but known to have horrible body odor. Can you handle it? If not, don't move to Neptune or date The Twilight vampire.

These are my free thoughts. Aren't you glad you stuck around for them?

About 8 or 9 years ago New Zealand was going to tax the farmers based on the number of cattle, for the methane put into the atmosphere. The tax was nick named the fart tax. It didn't pass.
