Why do silent farts smell worse than loud ones???
1. Farts stink due to the presence of methane produced by the intestines breaking down organic matter.
2. Methane is quite flammable.

4. It's obvious to me that the velocity attained by a forceful "loud" fart creates enough friction to "burn off" some or all of the methane, thus reducing the odor-causing component of the fart.
Any science experts care to comment?
