How Beans Become a Fart

(vimeo link)

Hey! Got a minute for some science? This little animation tells the story of what happens to beans when you eat them. Well, you know what happens when you eat beans, but this video gives the story from the inside. Beans may be the magical fruit, but the process is an everyday chemical reaction. That is, if you eat beans every day. Produced by Giant Ant for Men's Health Magazine. -via Viral Viral Videos

I'll never forget an incident in college. At the U of Maine, every Saturday night dinner was hot dogs and beans. A college chum was noted for his ability to produce gas after such a meal. We wanted to see if we could ignite the methane. One night he ate a lot. We sat around playing cards and waiting for the go ahead signal. He said he was ready. We turned off the lights and he bent over to let loose. At the same time a BIC light was positioned. A blue flame about a foot long shot out in the dark. We all were rolling on the floor laughing. We forgot to place a mirror so the gas producer could see it. Too bad it was before cell phone cameras and U-Tube. True story.
