A History Of Flatulence

Definition of Flatulence – flatus expelled through the anus, breaking wind, farting (wikipedia)

Blue Pill or Red Pill?

In the movie Matrix, Morpheus presents Neo with the following proposition:

“You take the blue pill, the story ends.  You wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.  You take the red pill, you stay in wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”

I too was presented with a similar choice.

The only difference was my pill was neither blue nor red.


In California, I have a pretty bad reputation because of my gas-passing ability.

In a room full of strangers, my cousin can detect my gas from another’s.  He knows it like the back of his hand.

Another one of my cousin from California, recently told me this, “I miss your farts.”

Really?  Of everything that I am and can do, this is what you remember me by?

Our deep conversations over boba?  Nope.  My infectious laughter?  Nah.  Tearing up the floor with my dance moves?  Never.

In certain people’s mind, I’m just a big, stanky, burst of hot air.

Speaking of the cousin that missed my farts, here’s one of our cherished moments.

My cousin was in his room watching TV.

I walked in sat down and let one out.  (This may sound like a douche bag thing to do, but I seriously didn’t have the urge until I sat down.  Sometimes you don’t feel it, until you’re in a particular position and suddenly the stars are aligned.)

After a couple of seconds, he looked up, pulled his shirt over his nose and said, “Did you fart?”

I was in a very playful mood, so I kept my face straight and said, “No!!!  Did you?”

Now this threw him off.  He’s not sure if he did fart or not.  I mean as far as he could remember he didn’t fart, but he wasn’t 100% confident of that, so that stalled him for awhile.

In the mean time, I thought about the whole situation.  Two people in a room.  One farts, the other one smells it.  It shouldn’t take this long to figure out who did it right?

I couldn’t control myself anymore and started giggling at him.

My cousin caught on and proceeded to bombard me with anything he could get his hands on.


I was in a meeting with three of my co-workers.

Movie Review: Fighter in the Wind

***Spoiler Alert***


Korean movie based on true events of karate master Choi Yeung-Eui.

Korean immigrant dreams of flying in Japanese army soon realizes that Koreans aren’t very welcomed in Japan.

While trying to make a life for himself, he meets his old mentor Bum-soo who is a martial arts expert.

Choi begs Bum-soo to be his mentor and learns martial arts.

His master gets killed by a group of gang members which throws Choi into complete chaos.  Choi runs into the mountain to train independently vowing to never to lose a figh again.

After his strenuous training, he returns from the mountain and challenges all the Japanese dojo.  He beats them all until one day he is challenged by a swordsman and kills the swordsman.

Feeling extreme regret, he travels to the swordsman family house to ask for forgiveness.  The family resents him but eventually welcomes him because they know he is sincere with his apology.

In the end, the head master of the Japanese Karate Association challenges Choi.  Choi defeats them all.

Final Thoughts:

This story resemble many other martial arts movie, where the main character runs around challenging all the dojos.

This always results in trouble finding him.

And eventually he rises above the trouble.

Their’s a romantic plot in the movie which I found depressing in regards to the female character.

Choi seeking forgiveness from the family was also a humbling experience.  It showed he isn’t just bent on endless violence and domination.

The movie definitely picks up immediately after his training because that’s when he starts kicking butt non-stop.
