Do people fart near you? People do this a lot in my presence. I can't smell my FBO but I can smell their farts. One of my friends (I don't know what he eats) but he used to pass gasses a lot in the classes when we set together. It was horrible. I kept my head turned to the board, away from him. In college, we were waiting for a teacher near a class and one guy stood near me. It was awkward. Why did he stop near me so closely? Then he walked away after a few seconds. Guess what it smelled like? And now at the university, I sit near another friend who farts a lot near me. That's how I know that I still smell.
