Re: This really takes your breath away.

I was in fact searching 'Collectables' for vintage stuff, like instruments, bottle radio stuff like that. Honest, I was.

Re: This really takes your breath away.

Just wondering how they know it's the worst-smelling - have they actually smelled every fart to make this assertion? Grin Grin

Re: This really takes your breath away.

I've just rechecked the auction and the item's been re-listed. Mmm I wonder why.

Re: This really takes your breath away.

If someone bought it and decided the smell wasn't so bad would they have be able to get their money back or request an new fart to fill the jar Cheesy

Re: This really takes your breath away.

I wonder if it has a 'Smell by' date on the jar....

Re: This really takes your breath away.

As a postal banned flammable noxious gas how would get it to the buyer?

Good point, the seller's obviously not thought this through!  Tongue

Re: This really takes your breath away.

if the sellers description is accurate as to the method of "capture" then he's actually attempting to send biological materials noxious gases and flammable contents through the post, all of which require protective markings and all of which are banned from normal carriage ......
I suspect its really just a jar of fresh air, but either way you'd be paying way over the odds for a kilner jar that's in need of sterilisation .....

Having just given this a little thought, a better method of making sure there was no air in the jar to lower the strength of the fart, would have been to get his 'friend'  Roll eyes to capture a fart in the bath by the following method;
1.  Sit/lie in a bath full of water.
2.  Place the jar in the bath to fill with water.
3.  Invert jar and place over relevant area.
4.  Let rip.
5.  The rising bubbles/torrent of fart gas displace water in the jar.
6.  If/when all the water has been displaced, screw cap on jar whilst still under surface of water.
Voila, 1 bottled fart.

Can you confirm this actually works or is it just a theory ?
tbh I think this whole topic stinks.
