Dear Lifehacker, If I have an overheating laptop on my lap and I do a big fart, would an explosion be possible? I find myself lifting the laptop away just in case.
Farts are weird. It seems perfectly fine when we let one rip, despite the stink bomb it may be. We can tolerate our own, but if someone else cuts the cheese? Aw, heck no. Theirs is unbearable. Here comes the science.
