Farts Strong Enough to Kill Computers?

...at least that's what I thought I read, but just like in those infomercials for miracle "Shamoo Towels", there's MORE!

STUART, Fla. – A student at a Florida school has been arrested after authorities said he was "passing gas" and turned off his classmates' computers. According to a report released Friday by the Martin County Sheriff's Office, the 13-year-old boy "continually disrupted his classroom environment" by intentionally breaking wind. He then shut off some computers other students were using.

The Spectrum Junior-Senior High School was arrested Nov. 4.

A school resource officer placed the boy under arrest after he confessed about his behavior, according to the report. He was charged with disruption of school function and released to his mother.

Just coincidentally, I was in a 3rd grade classroom yesterday where I ran across the following book: The Gas We Pass - The Story of Farts.

The perfect Christmas gift for someone special I know!

You can be arrested for farting?

...Had I known this, I would have done something about the lady sitting in front of me on the train from Chicago to Houston on Monday...

God, I'm in trouble. With all the fiber I eat I'm done. I want to be absolved of my farting. I hope I don't get arrested.
