1) What purpose do farts serve (if any) in the evolution/survival as humans? (I was thinking perhaps a repellent to aid survival). Mating rituals. If you can find a woman that can tolerate what comes blasting out of your butt bugle, she's a keeper. If she savors a dutch oven, throw her back....she's insane (or has no sense of smell, neither of which are good).
2) Why do we at least endure, at most enjoy our own farts? We spend an awful lot of money and energy on food. Why not savor every last morsel?
3) In relation to the above... What is it in our brains which, when we believe a fart is one of our own it is endured/savoured but when it turns out to be someone else's we are disgusted? see the above point. You wouldn't want to chew on food someone's already masticated, right? Same logic with farts. How can you savor someone elses last morsel?
4) Why is a fart ALWAYS funny? They aren't. They are only funny when its my farts. If its someone elses, its gross.
Im something of an expert in this field.
