I have really bad gas right now, but I want to go out and pick up chicks. Although it could be a conversation starter. Either way, I need a drink. See ya.

If you have gas, don't eat beans.

Roger the Dodger, is that your favorite game? Like Smear the Queer or something?

Charcoal absorbs gas. Might give you cancer though. Pros and cons.

Magnesium Citrate will get rid of gas pretty quickly.

Go drink a bottle, wait around an hour, gas comes out, then go out and party!!!

(please oh please someone do this)

I might

what is magnesium citrate?

I don't know exactly what it does, but magnesium is never good for you.

JM^3
09-02-2006, 02:00:08
really?

(I could swear something I eat has Magnesium in it, and is suppose to be good for me.. if only I can remember what)

Magnesium Citrate increases water in the intestines.

JM^3
09-02-2006, 02:50:36
Is that good or bad?

Except for the magnesium that you would die if your body didn't have.

Im not good with minerals. I thought magnesium would explode or something.

MDA
09-02-2006, 14:41:32
elemental magnesium might

potassium or sodium definitely would ignite

MDA
09-02-2006, 14:43:00
I'm thinking back to magnesium tape - it burns very hot, but doesn't ignite on contact with air/water

Needs to be a IA metal, I think

What about the ones from that group you aren't allowed to try the 'drop it in water' experiment with in class. eg. Caesium

HelloKitty
09-02-2006, 16:06:57
Sodium is the fun one I saw as an undergrad where when you put it in water and it bounces on top shooting bursts of flame where ever it contacts.

Funko
09-02-2006, 16:13:47
Yeah, that and potassium I think we did.

But they get more explosive as the mass number goes up, they could only show us the first couple at school then we got to watch videos of the others.

Drop a tiny bit of caesium in a tank of water and it'll blow the water tank apart. Brilliant.

Venom
09-02-2006, 16:18:58
I want caesium.

Funko
09-02-2006, 16:22:32
They might call it cesium in the states, if you are looking in a catalogue or something.

Venom
09-02-2006, 16:24:22
Damn cultural differences! When will catalogs start working for us instead of against us!?!

Funko
09-02-2006, 16:27:00
Wow, I've found like the actual lesson plan for that lesson. How could I forget Lithium - answer, because it doesn't blow up as impressively as caesium!

I wanted some Francium, but apparently only 30 grams of the stuff actually exists, and it's all underground.

Beano's active ingrediant is an enzyme that breaks down oleo-saccharides (common in farty foods, such a beans{mostly in the skins of beans}) making them digestable.
Undigested oleo-saccharides are fermented in the colon by bacteria, creating gas.

Sans beano, a method to reduce oleo-saccharides is to reaptedly soak and rinse the beans, disposing of the soak water.

oligosaccharides

Specifically alpha galactosides. Our body can breakdown beta but not alpha.
