It with a great deal of shame that I make this report and ask this question. I was lying in bed last night long after wifie had gone to sleep. I had to pass gas in the worst way so I let a SBD ( silent but deadly) fart under the cover ( I am just too lazy to get up and go to the bathroom so sue me.) Anyway I lay very still watching TV in hopes that the fart would disipate sooner or later. Much to my decern and surprise, 20 minutes later as I rolled over and flapped the covers yikes! there was the 20 min old fart right there wafting right up in my face.
So I was wondering just how long these things can last if left alone? Is there not enought air underneath the covers for them to disipate?

Mouthbreather, congratulations on keeping the responses down at the original level of the post.
As to the OP, I would guess that the smell would stay around for sometime under the covers. As to how long, get into a sleeping bag. Let it go and when you open it in the morning see if it still smells.
Some novelty stores I’ve been in were selling “Fart in a Can”. (I’ve never bought one, I’m just waiting to see if anybody ever comes up with a “I Can’t Believe it’s Not a Fart!” knockoff). Anybody here ever bought one?
I can’t vouch for their ultimate olfactory-offensive life, but I do know that I used to live in a drafty apartment. One day I got tired of the drafts, so I put up plastic over the outsides of the windows and suddenly, the air became virtually motionless. One afteroon, I went out to see a movie and sliced the cheese just before leaving.
When I walked back in over three hours later, it was still fresh as a dai – well, you know . . .
My 9 y/o daughter bought fart in a can. It wasn’t a device to give out bad odors, it was a putty/jello type substance that you mashed into its container and it made farting noises as you released the trapped air.

Yes, I bought a can of the “fart spray”. It doesn’t really smell like farts, but it is VERY devastating. Stuff smelled so bad it almost made me blow chunks on the spot. We bought it along with its companion product, “Shit In A Can”. “SIAC” is a kind of foamy brown substance that looks an awful lot like turds if you spray it properly. I ran with a sophisticated crowd, you see…
Don’t you hate it when farts “follow” you? Especially in cold weather when the heavier clothing gives them more staying power.

You probably don’t want to see the math, but a basic high school chemistry book can answer this. Diffusion of a gas by natural methods (not forced by a fan) is simple enough to figure. The rest I leave to you. It’ll give yous something to do beyond raising a stink.

It shouldn’t be too awfully hard to take the air from the vet’s office and/or exam rooms and compress it into a big tank.
One more thing for the veterinarian’s business to market. Wonder if it WOULD work??
