    If you hold your farts for long enough, could you cause harm to you intestines?

    Or would it just seep out gradually?

    Glad I could be of service.... but really, I've been holding them for 3 days.  I think I'm about to float away

    I can't imagine why anyone would want to hold on to them, I think continuing to do so wouldn't damage your intestines but would probably be detrimental to your blood pressure.  Further to your other bit, I doubt that you will float away, if my memory serves me well, the gas is heavier than air, of course, you could let it go and light it:-)

    Nature will eventually find a way out.  Here's a medical question I don't have an answer to:  Could they back up the other way and cause really bad breath?  :-)

    Now, if you light them, make sure you have on underwear, otherwise you might singe your hair. 

    I am also reminded of the hot tub scene in "Austin Powers" with Austin and Lotta Fagina...  Though he didn't light them.

    Yes you should definitely fart and shit when the sensation moves you. My Aunty Lil used to say "Where ere you be, let your wind go free". I have always followed that advice.
