I was sitting in the food court of Costco yesterday afternoon. I kept noticing people walking by me who were farting--a lot of them. I don't believe it had anything to do with Costco, save perhaps the long distance to the restrooms. Farting, in public is considered uncouth. Now I myself went thorough a phase where I farted in public elevators. But, to just blast away, oblivious to the nearby folks trying to enjoy their hot dogs seems a bit uncultured. Maybe it's a trend for something new.
