    Is it poor etiquette to fart on a drafter?

    Just wondering about this one...

    It's better when you are climbing, and the guy behind you is really sucking wind!

    Farting on them gives them more incentive to pedal faster and lead for once. Or they'll get woozy from the stench and fall back. Snot rockets do not get the same response however. I landed one on my buddy's wife while road riding...she was not too happy.

    My goodness, I am so outraged at such a ridiculous question!

    Of course, it is most definitely a gross demonstration of poor etiquette to allow flatulence anywhere at anytime, public or private.

    There should be laws written to prohibit it and they should be strictly enforced with severe penalties!

    PS.

    May I further suggest that you NOT use the "F" word in this public forum ever again!

    Absolutely. It's not healthy to hold it in. Plus it gives you a little turbo boost to speed you up, which in turn makes the drafter go faster. Win/win as far as I can see, or smell.

    Hey there Scotty Ole Boy!

    You forgot one thing! Newton's third law!

    For every action, there's an equal and opposite reaction.

    Once the noxious gas is released with it's turbo blast force, the drafter will either be blown further behind the leader, or he will lose consciousness and crash. Possibly even both!

    Whatever the case may be, it will NOT end well for the drafter!

    PS.

    BTW the leader will be propelled far ahead of the beleagured drafter! (According to Newton)

    Farting can be used as a weapon. Completely acceptable.

    Think this thread belongs in the XC race thread. I am going to try this at my race on Sunday to knock out some of the competition.

    Did this in a triathlon once.

    Did not realize I'd pasted the guy. He came storming around me, cut in front and blasted me with his own snot. I was taken totally by surprise and only figured out that I was the instigator later.

    From self-righteous rage to chagrin in the space of a moment!

    Farting on others though if they don't pull, they are asking for it IMO. It's a little wake up call.

    It's not rude if the padding in your shorts is made with activated carbon.
    Use it, use it, use it while you still have it.

    The worst part about being slow is being last in the pack and breathing everyone's farts...

    All physics aside I deem it acceptable due to the fact it's scientifically proven that farts are funny and always will be

    Another vote for crop dusting. Just wait til you start the race, not cool to do it at the starting line while everyone is waiting for the race to begin. Makes them angry and more likely to drop you before the hole shot, no pun intended.

    Lol...

    If you know your farts are particularly terrible that day... like if you're protein loading that week... you should at least announce that you are in the middle of a nasty buttleak so they can hold their breath or breathe through their mouth for a few seconds until it passes.

    if i ever reach an age where farts stop becoming funny, just put me out to pasture.

    we have a guy who would always lead (he was the fastest) and also the most famous in the group for having the worst farts. he would leave a nice blanket behind for everybody to cut thru. luckily i convinced him to take probiotics and that has cut down on the farts and stink. though, it may have also cut his soul. its good to be famous for something right? and to rip it all away.....

    I definitely don't find farts funny anymore unless they are unleashed by one of my dogs... Decomposed air results of poorly digested food shooting out of a butthole into the air that I have to breathe is not a welcomed human event of mine.
